InstameetItalia5 is an event organized by Instagramers Italia, the Association gathering together the Italian community of Instagram lovers, in order to promote the knowledge of mobile photography through events and photo challenges.
Instagramers Italia belongs to the worldwide network of Instagramers, founded in Madrid by Philippe Gonzalez in January 2011. There are over 300 groups of Instagramers in the world, 60 of which are in Italy.
InstameetItalia5 was made possible thanks to the efforts of:
