October 10, 2014 by Brian Champlin

Did you know there’s a free Instagram contest you can enter this fall that could land your work in a local gallery and featured in some of L.A.’s top blogs?

It’s called #EyeSpyDTLA and it’s super easy to enter. This is how it works:


1) Starting on Oct. 1st, 2014 you tag your photos (new or old) of downtown Los Angeles with the #EyeSpyDTLA hashtag on Instagram.

2) The EyeSpyDTLA Instagram account will repost the photos, and based on number of likes by each photo, a top 20 field will be created.

3) Public voting takes place (like paper ballots and such) at a cocktail event at the Arts District Flea Market on Nov. 7th, then the judges (including We Like L.A.) will decide the final winner on Nov. 8th.

4) The winner will receive receive a grand prize of a museum-quality archival print, which will hang in the Roial Gallery for 2 months. Photo prints will be available to the public by order, in which the winner will receive 80% of the sales. The winner will also be featured in The LA Girl Blog, the Arts District Flea website, the Roial Gallery website, and WeLikeLA.com.

The #EyeSpyDTLA contest is being presented by Roial Photography in coalition with The LA Girl, and hosted by the Arts District Flea Market, with a panel of judges that includes yours truly (We Like L.A. founders Brian Champlin and Christina Minh!).
