Instagram Creators Presents: Season Two

Earlier this year, we challenged a group of six incredible storytellers to each experiment with the vertical canvas and showcase their own unique style using 9x16 video. Across illustration, motion graphics and film, we explored the growing potential of vertical video and its endless creative possibilities. And now, we're excited to announce that our second installment of Instagram Creators will be unveiled at this year's Cannes International Festival of Creativity. This expansion will feature 19 new creators from eight different countries—stretching from Australia to the US to everywhere in-between.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the videos we'll be premiering at Cannes. We hope they inspire you to tap into this emerging space and start thinking vertically when creating on Instagram.

We'd really like people to do the mental gymnastics themselves to find ideas that would be amusing to look at vertically.
