From the 9th Annual Shorty Awards Instagrammer of the Year

Instagram is so simple, yet allows for seemingly endless creativity, with the best artists using it in ways that the rest of us may never have imagined. This year, these were the Instagrammers who showed us how original you can get on the app, doing so much more than simply posting pictures.
