Enter the Flixel Instagram Contest: #FlixelSeeInColor

We always love a good Flixel Instagram contest, and that is why we will be running even more challenges this year! Each month or so, we will announce a new theme that will fuel creativity within the Flixel community and inspire one another to create beautiful cinemagraphs.

Flixel Instagram Contest Theme: See In Color

“Color is powerful. It can influence thinking, change emotions and spark a surreal response. Reds and yellows spark a sense of joy and vibrancy, while blues and greens portray calmness.”

– Roy. G. Biv

With this Flixel Instagram challenge, we want you to see differently… we want you to see in color. Look around you — what colors stand out? How are they adding to the scene? Color doesn’t only draw the viewers eye, color evokes emotion and tells a deeper story. It could be a dash of yellow against a blue wall, a sprinkle of green on a snow-blanketed street, or a scene filled with only the color purple. Take the colors around you and bring them to life in your cinemagraph!
