Here’s how it works: Simply capture epic moments in the action sports or adventure space. There are four categories you can choose from: “Homework” (content made in/around your home), “Throwback” (content that compares “then” and “now”), “Unseen” (content that employs a unique photography technique), or “Storytale” (content that comprises up to six Instagram stories to tell a narrative).
