The National Aquarium’s first ever “InstaMeet” took place this past Tuesday in honor of the one year anniversary of their Black Tip Reef Exhibit. A small group of people who use the popular social media app, Instagram, were invited to an after hours party to enjoy light refreshments, good company and the opportunity to photograph one of the aquarium’s largest and most diverse exhibits. The participants were chosen through a contest that the National Aquarium made available to their followers on social media. The contest required them to submit a contact form with their name and Instagram account. Winners were randomly selected a week prior to the event.
