  1. Wonderful contest, though missing it since I ain’t on Instagram. Please have such contests on Twitter , if possible. Good luck to the participants.

  2. Do I need to post only those photographs which I had taken during IH treks only ? Can I post other photographs , which I have taken during treks but not with IH ?

  3. Where can I get notification of any upcoming contests? Can we post a dated photo (a few month or a year old photo), or it has to be recent??

    1. Hi Navneet,
      We haven’t been running Instagram contests for some months now. If yo follow Indiahikes on Instagram, you will get to know when we run the next contest.
