About this entry

We started @meetkvell with the mission to build a community on Instagram that celebrates emerging artists from around the world.

Why does this entry deserve to win?

Our strategy was to bring to life the true meaning of kvell, to be extraordinarily delighted, by curating beautiful, bizarre, and colorful content from avant-garde artists.


@meetkvell has become a thriving account on Instagram with over 100K+ fans and 20K+ hashtag mentions.

We commissioned numerous artists to create branded content for brands such as Target, Skullcandy, Western Digital, Nylon Magazine, Headspace, Pocky, and Paramount Pictures.

Additionally, we've hosted three annual "Artist of the Year" award shows. The work was showcased in a one-night exhibition and reception with sponsors like Cadillac and NeueHouse.
