“Today we tend to take the same pictures of the same objects from the same places.

Audi wanted to challenge this and at the same time promote quattro, their powerful four-wheel drive.That’s why they created Catch the Unseen. A first of its kind photo competition where people were challenged to take the photo furthest away from any other photo.


By connecting a custom made algorithm to Instagram, Audi were able to collect the metadata and map all the geo tagged Instagram photos that’s ever been shot. By uploading a photo with #CatchTheUnseen and AudiSweden, the algorithm could find the nearest geotagged photo and reveal the distance to it. The winner was the one with the furthest distance.

The campaign became popular among Instagram photographers which helped Audi reach more than 500 000 Instagram users, and the winner had over 13 kilometres to the nearest photo and got his hands on a brand new Audi Q7.Agency: Akestam Holst, Sweden”
