Today, Instagram photos can be confidently attributed to a separate genre of photo art. This genre even has its own contest – Photobox Instagram Awards (PIPAs).

Competition is open to all and free to enter for anyone who has posted a picture on Instagram over the past 12 months. Submissions are in 10 categories. And if you think, that the best photo should have a million of likes – we’ll disappoint you.

And in order to participate in the contest in 2018, users did not need to do anything extraordinary: it was enough just to select a decent photo in the account and put the #PEDAS2018 tag and the @PHOTOBOXUK mark.

So, here are the best Instagram photos over the past year.

The winner in the category “Animals and Pets”

The winner in the nomination “Fashion”

The winner in the category “Sport”

COME ON TROOPS LETS GET THE CARDBOARD & ROLL INTO THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS • BRING IT ON! Unfortunately we are not going anywhere this summer, so we are going to be creative. (Aren’t we boys!) I got the kids a writing book each and asked them to write everything they want to do in the hols. They have both wrote simple ideas and adventures (phew)… The best one so far is a custard pie fight…think I can manage that one. • • My inspiration is not just limited to interiors (as you know) I get inspired by all things creative and instagram is a cool place to be… From photoshop pics, art, colour, pattern to interiors…love it all! ⛔️ Ps. I finally got The Other Half to be in a photo. ⛔️ – – – Summer Nights #mycreativesummer_summernights #cardboardfamily #inspirationimage #whplookup #cardboard #cardboardart #cardboardcutout #ThePIPAS2018 #gramheist #ps_wanderlust #cardboardtoys #cardboardchallenge #visual100 #visualcreators #visualmovement #theimage #enter_imagination #mightydreamers #worldtones #creativegrammer #igcreative_editz #summernights #creativefamily #cardboardcreations #schoolsoutforsummer #stayathome

Number 2 of 2018! It's no surprise to me that Najac has made it in to my top 9 posts of 2018! What is surprising to me is that it isn't number 1! This is the first year since I originally posted it in 2016 that it hasn't been the top post. This image means so much to me, and marks the start of my photographic journey on social media. It started me down a path that I'm so grateful to be on. My photography has come a long way in the past few years, and I feel that it is because of the community I have found here on social media. It's driven me to get out there and create more, which for me is the best way to improve and grow as a photographer. As dear to me as this image is, perhaps it's time for me to move on and capture a new Najac. Here's to many more years creating images! #Najac #France #Europe #Aveyron #SouthFrance #castle #fairytale #French #magical #Occitanie #mist #fog #travel #tourism #southoffrance #travelling #traveller #travelphotography #dreamy

Dans cette rame bondée, à l'abri des regards indiscrets tels que le mien, ce couple profitait de son union sans prêter une seule attention à ce que pouvais penser le reste de la rame. En me penchant vers eux, les regards des parisiens m'ont foudroyé et les mains se sont resserrées devant moi, comme pour hurler de les laisser tranquille car bien que tout le monde ai pu constater leur profond baisers, personne n'a osé y prêter un oeil par respect, respect qu'il m'a plu de briser. . . . #wonderearthclubbw #streetleaks #streets_storytelling #streetsacademy #streetphotographyinternational #streetphotography #blackandwhite #noiretblanc #photoderue #subway #love #couple #kiss #lover #fujifeed #street_roamers #nico1july #concoursricohgr #ricohgr #sst_thematic_20 #lumixblackandwhite

Would you like to participate in the competition in 2019? What of these photos do you like most of all?
