Next, we made it all the way to Hammer Town, in the Hamilton Spectator's article, Nunavut Instagram Challenge Shows Colours of the True North. They went on to say that Nunagram provides "a new outlet to show the world...a stunning look at the vast, sparsely populated" territory of Nunavut. The Spec also included over three dozen of their favourite nunagram shots, including this moonlight landscape of Pond Inlet by @helloooooooonurse:
This week's #nunagram winner is @helloooooooonurse with her beautiful photo of the moonrise over Pond Inlet.

And most recently, the Huffington Post showed us a lot of love with their post entitled, Finding True North Showcases Nunavut at its Most Beautiful. HuffPo wrote that the Nunagram Contest "has yielded some absolutely breathtaking photos that show a cold landscape teeming with life." Not surprisingly, their curated list of Nunagram photos contained this capture of the northern lights above Kugluktuk, posted by @arped17.
We are overwhelmed by the support and recognition given to Nunagram, not only by these media outlets, but by the faithful photographers who tag every post, every picture. We love scrolling through the hashtag and marvelling at Nunavut's many delights - from tiny tundra flowers to towering icebergs to laughing children - and it seems like other people are starting to notice. With thousands of entries and new ones being added every day, Nunagram is a growing community of nuna-lovers and friends.
For more information on the contest and the hashtag, read our introductory post, follow us on Instagram, and check out the hashtag! And of course, keep your eye on the blog for more Nunagram in the news.
