Contests: A Few Ideas Partner with other nonprofits for prizes, tag them & cross-promote on social media. Choose a short & memorable hashtag; vet it.  Make sure you have a “rules” page with a disclaimer allowing use of images for promotional purposes. Use onsite signage to promote contest with Instagram logo & hashtag . Search for relevant photos that might be good entries & tell them about the contest. Despite all the signs, and promotion, some don’t know about it.
