You’ll be able to follow my adventures on this site, see my Instagram photos on my twitter feed or connect with me directly on Instagram @jezzster. but if photos aren’t enough for you and you want to to check out paradise for yourself, Hamilton Island has launched an excellent competition for all of you Instagram users out there to win a trip of your own to the island paradise.

Hamilton Island

The competition is called Pilgramers Descend on Hamilton Island – The Ultimate InstaMeet.

The Ultimate InstaMeet will involve a group of Pilgramers, Instagrammers on a Pilgrimage, visiting Hamilton Island from 23-25 November to see, taste and experience everything on and around the Island. The Hamilton Island Pilgramers will capture their experiences and post them on Instagram and other social media outlets such as You Tube, and Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ sharing the InstaMeet in real-time with their networks of friends and followers.

The group of Hamilton Island Pilgramers will be made up of passionate Instagrammers from around the country who will be personally invited by Hamilton Island to take part. Included in this group will be some well-known personalities, Australian Instagrammers, competition winners and the original Pilgramers from America.

Who are the Pilgramers?

The original Pilgramers, university students who first coined the phrase ‘Pilgramers’, spent their summer travelling from city to city across America exploring and invoking community through Instagram and creating documentary webisodes along the way. Their social media campaign caught the attention of Instagram HQ, including its CEO and co-founder Kevin Systrom, so much so that they asked them to visit its headquarters in San Francisco to be interviewed and featured on the Instagram blog for the first ever Instagram #OnTheCouch video series. 

In the Pilgramers latest webisode, they’ve included a special call out to Australians to let them know that they’ll be heading to paradise, Hamilton Island.
