There are over 600 million Instagram users, and the number of images posted to the app is almost endless, so narrowing them down is no small feat. But our nominees for the Instagram Photo of the Year are those indelible images that you can’t forget once you see them, tapping into the spirit of a moment in a way others do not. They are, simply, the best.
The Shorty Award for Instagram Photo of the Year is presented by Watchable, the video streaming platform that brings the web’s best shows and networks to every device.
Millions of people participate in
The Shortys to recognize individuals and organizations producing great content on Twitter, Facebook,
Tumblr, YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram, YouNow, Musical.ly, Vine and the rest of the social web.
The 9th Annual Shorty Awards were held April 23, 2017 in NYC and streamed to the public.
