Here’s a chance to organise your own Instameet – a gathering of a group of Instagrammers – to shoot what everybody loves to post on Instagram: Food. The best part? Your Instameet will be spotlighted on an Instamap and the best food photos will get more attention than usual. Of course, you can choose whether or not you want to be on the map (don’t use hashtags and don’t write to Instagram telling them that you’re organising an Instameet). But where’s the fun in that?

The Instameet, tagged as #WWIM14, is slated to be held next weekend on September 17 and 18, which should give Instagrammers enough time to bring their A game to this food photography meeting. You can upload photos, videos, Instastories and even scale it up to organise a brunch or a food walk. You could choose a sub theme to focus on a particular type of cuisine.

“We’re looking forward to spending the day with old and new friends, celebrating this community we’ve created around a passion for food and photography,” says Steffi Crivellaro (@steffi_daydreamer), who’s hosting a #WWIM14🍴 InstaMeet with Rosella Degori (@roselladegori) in London. The two friends launched @welovetobrunch with the goal of bringing people together for photowalks, good company and, of course, delicious food. “When we saw the theme for WWIM14 was food, we thought it would be a perfect fit for what we do with @welovetobrunch,” says Steffi. The pair is organizing an intimate brunch at a London restaurant before going for a walk to explore the King’s Cross neighborhood. (Sounds like a great day to us.)

It’s not a contest, but an opportunity to connect with likeminded people on Instagram especially since it’s an event that has been officially flagged off by the photo sharing service. Over the years, everybody from photographers who were part of the Delhi photo Festival last year to fashion designers at the New York Fashion Week have organised Instameets.
