In celebration of our five year anniversary in the cultural and historic heart of the Mother City, Taj Cape Town will be marking the occasion with the launch of a very special anniversary #CelebrateCapeTown Instagram competition.
The #CelebrateCapeTown Instagram competition invites all budding photographers and Instagram aficionados to capture their central city stories through photography in five different categories. These include Architecture (Buildings, cityscapes, historic, interiors, industrial), People (Hotel staff, family, portraiture, self-portrait), Elements of design (Man-made or natural, elements that showcase line, shape, pattern, form, texture, perspective), Nature (Aerial, flowers, seasons, sunset, trees, wildlife) and Arts and culture (Street art, performing arts, food). Cape Town central city is rich with visual memories to be captured and unique city stories to be told through the lens.
