Competition Time – Win an Instax Mini 8

Instax Mini 8 Giveaway

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!

As a special thank you to everyone who’s been following my adventures this year, and in particular to those in my Instagram audience (which has more than doubled this year), I have one last super exciting giveaway for you all this year. I’ve got a fab new Instax Mini 8 to giveaway to one lucky Instagram follower – so keep reading to see how to enter.

What I love about these camera (aside from how fun they are) is that you only get one shot. And that’s exactly the idea behind Project #Instax1of1. Every shot you take with an instant camera is unique, instant, and uneditable. In a world where every photo seems to be filtered and unrealistically over-saturated to the max, it’s quite refreshing to have some raw and unedited pictures to remember, too!

All you have to do is post a photo to Instagram that sums up who you are, and/or what you love. You can take it on your phone, but the idea is that you can only use one photo. So choose carefully! Post the photo to Instagram and use the hashtag #instax1of1, and be sure to tag both @em_luxton (me), and @instaxHQ, so we can see your photo. Don’t forget to follow me as well!

Check out my own post on Instagram (below) and be sure to leave a comment to let me know what you think.

I’ll choose my favourite entry on the 21st, so get your entry posted before midnight (UK time) on the 20th December. The winner will receive their very own Instax camera just in time for Christmas. Good luck!

I love the beach, travel, photography, and my home and family. So I took a selfie in front of the beach huts on Weymouth Beach (where I grew up) and shot that in front of the sea. I’m also wearing my favourite travel souvenir, a scarf I bought in India. It’s a simple take on the #Instax1of1 idea – but it shows some of the things that are most important to me. Although, as I said to my sister earlier… I should really have just taken a shot of myself stuffing my face with cake. That would have been far more accurate!

Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram (@em_luxton) and Snapchat (emluxton) to be the first to hear about my next giveaway.
