Instagram is hosting it’s first exhibition in NYC at the W Hotel in Time Square. The exhibition will showcase the photos of twelve instagrams users who have uploaded images tagging it with #WDESIGN. The competition ended April 12 with the mission to “focus on the impact that urban design elements and architecture have on the character of a city’s landscape”.

The head of the NYC Instagram community, Brian Difeo, wants to show that there are actual talented photographers who use the app. Featured artists such as collagist Angeliki Jackson, photographer John de Guzman and painter Chrixtian Xavier Chantemargue will be honored for documenting their daily lives in NYC with Instagram.

Curious if the exhibition is any good? The exhibition will run from May 1st through June at W Hotel Time Square on 1567 Broadway.
