Photo Competition – Photographer of Style – Instagram competition


To celebrate this autumn’s V&A exhibition “Horst: Photographer of Style”, The Telegraph newspaper want you to take inspiration from Horst’s iconic photos, become a Horst muse or recreate the composition, light and elegance of the master photographer.

Simply upload your photo to Instagram with the hashtag #MyHorstPhoto for your chance to win return tickets to Paris, exclusive bespoke framing of your winning photo and other exhibition goodies.

Need some inspiration? Browse the V&A’s dedicated Horst Pinterest board, their online picture gallery or visit the exhibition from 6 September 2014.

How it Works


Follow @vamuseum and @telegraphtelephoto on Instagram.

Take a Horst inspired photo and upload to Instagram with the hashtag #MyHorstPhoto.
V&A and guest judges will select their favourite photo of the week and these will be regrammed for the duration of the competition.

Entries close midnight 13 November 2014.

One overall winner will then be selected by the judging panel including Susanna Brown, Curator of Horst: Photographer of Style and Lucy Davies, Telegraph photography critic.

Please note: Your Instagram account must be public in order for you to submit your #MyHorstPhoto entry (Private account submissions don’t get pulled through). Instagram also blocks searches that include broken hashtags such as # photography. We recommend only using the competition hashtag #MyHorstPhoto.
