CHICAGO — Scores of the city's best photographers are showcased on Choose Chicago's Instagram account.
And you have a chance to join them.
"Photographers are handpicked based on their photography, creativity and love for Chicago," said Nycole Hampton, Choose Chicago's social media manager. "We are always considering new talent."
The account has nearly 100,000 followers and posts about two photos a day from selected photographers from neighborhoods throughout Chicago. It utilizes pics from about 80 photographers, with 30 more to be added by summer 2016. Those photographers also get to "take over" the Choose Chicago Instagram account by choosing their own photos to upload.

@hip_hipster_ray here and #TakingOverChooseChicago. Chicago has not only 1 but 2 major league baseball teams in the White Sox and Cubs and there's not much of a better way to spend a warm summer evening than taking in a ballgame. Here's a view from White Sox Stadium, A.K.A. US Cellular Field A.K.A The Cell. #Mychicagopix
@the606chicago is an old abandoned rail line turned into a 2.7 mile trail and park. Many walk, run, and bike down the trail everyday for exercise. or as an efficient way to get from one neighborhood to another. If you haven't seen it before, check it out!

The Michael Jordan statue at the United Center makes for some great photos, if you're in town visiting, make sure to take a trip over to the UC and snap a pic! This day he was sporting a Jonathan Toews jersey because the Blackhawks were chasing down another Cup. I'm @chippercentral, and I'm #TakingOverChooseChicago this week. #Mychicagopix
Having two baseball teams in Chicago is really awesome. We have the White Sox and the Cubs. This year I had the opportunity to see my first White Sox game and a chance to try some delicious bites during Taste Of Chisox. If you've never been to a baseball game...I suggest you do 👌.
