You provide the content and we’ll take care of the rest!

INSTAGRAM TAKEOVERS

  • Photo credits for each image (name and/or Instagram handle). You must ensure you have appropriate rights to share all images provided on Tourism Vancouver Island’s social media channels
  • Consent and release form for all images

WE WILL:

  • Announce the takeover on all our social media channels one day in advance. On Instagram it will be announced through an Instagram Story
  • Post one image per day with caption, photo credit, your Instagram handle, branded hashtag(s) and image location. The Instagram Takeover will run over seven consecutive days.
  • Use #explorevancouverisland, #exploreBC and any other hashtags deemed appropriate on all images
  • Tag Destination BC (@hellobc) in all posts
  • Co-host a “Travel Tuesday” on @tourismvancouverisland with you
  • Share a minimum of two of the posts to Facebook during the same week
  • At the end of the takeover, prepare one blog post for VancouverIsland.travel/blog

Content Guidelines

The goal of the Instagram takeover is to feature both your business and the Vancouver Island region as a destination. Each image and caption should tell a story of an experience, trip or area.  The caption should focus on storytelling, rather than traditional sales copy. See the Destination BC Brand Guidelines on writing for more information.

Image Specs

  • Seven images with a resolution width no lower than 1900 pixels
  • Images should drive interest around travelling to the region and booking an overnight stay
  • Avoid featuring portraits, culturally sensitive areas, or copyrighted material. If any images include recognizable people you must provide an image waiver completed by the model.
