The Holi Festival, a traditional Hindu festival which celebrates the burning of a particularly evil demon has taken over Europe this summer. The special feature of the festival, which has come to several European cities including London, Manchester, Berlin and Zurich, is that people paint themselves with various, vibrant colours and throw colourful powder in the air and at each other to express their freedom and colour their everyday life.
Colours can have a special meaning for all of us, the translucent greens of a river in one’s hometown or the exuberant reds of a field of roses under a stark blue sky that was discovered on a holiday can create lifelong memories. This week, it’s your chance to recall such colourful images and try to capture them anew. We want to see your most strikingly colourful images and to give you the chance to express what colourful times means to you! To enter simply follow @inkifi_instagram and tag your images: #printmyfeedcolourfultimes
It’s August and for many of us in the Northern Hemisphere it’s a time of festivals, holidays, camping trips and all things happy times. Because of this we have chosen “Happy Days” as our first theme for the #printmyfeedplease challenge.
Please show us what “Happy Days” mean to you, whether it’s time on the beach, spent with friends and family or walking the dog, show us what it means to you to be in a happy place.
Our judge for this week is @jeera with over 180K followers on Instagram he know’s a good photo!
Please tag your images #printmyfeedhappydays and follow @inkifi_instagram. Please feel free to tag as many images as you like but please make them new and your own.

Life on the road with a rock and roll band is a pleasure that most of us will never enjoy (more’s the pity). However, for those who want a taste of this sometimes glamorous, often hedonistic and always envy inducing lifestyle can do so vicariously, through the Instagram pictures uploaded by the rock stars mentioned on this list.
Being one half of the critically lauded rock band Best Coast entitles Bethaney Cosentino to be a fairly decent judge of good and bad music, so if your stereo is going to keep her up all night, make sure that it’s playing something that she approves of. Take note, future touring buddies.
One half of the weird and wonderful pair that musical duo that call themselves Outkast treats his followers to personal shots of his daughter’s graduation (as well as her 4x4 graduation present!), combined with his buddies’ sweet tattoos and his many, many stylish outfits. Boo-yaaaaa!
The suave and funky electronic maestros that make up Chromeo also have a keen eye for amusing and entertaining shots. Any lover of synth porn NEEDS to follow this account.
Justin Vernon is better known as his musical sobriquet Bon Iver, self-christened after spending a winter in a wood cabin recording the bleak yet beautiful album that would make him an international star. Luckily, he seems to have cheered up since then and his Instagram photos are full of cute cats’ paws, artsy meanderings through the desert and super-cool playing-with-flames shots like this one.
Do you know what sucks about being a guitarist for The Strokes? Nothing. You can see evidence of this in Mr. Hammond Jr’s kickass shots from his kickass life, including promotional photos with his bandmates as well as snaps of him and his suitably gorgeous wife. It’s only rock and roll, but he loves it…
One of the perks of being in a successful band is that you get to travel. A lot. Ed Roste takes time off from his Grizzly Bear duties to post beautiful shots of his blessed life on the road. A lot. You’ll like this account. A l- oh, you get the picture.
These sprightly young chaps keep their legions of followers updated with on-the-road life shots as well as images of thousands of screaming fans taken from behind the drum kit. Oh, if only you’d have practiced harder at your childhood guitar lessons, all this could be yours…
A smooth customer all the way, Mr. Frank Ocean delights his followers with shots of the cool crooner chilling in the hot tub and close-up selfies with a certain queen of pop.
Proving that we can spit as well as shoot it just as well as our American cousins on this side of the pond, British rapper Wiley updates his Instagram fans with fabulously eccentric phone-tographs from his fascinating life.
Not the easiest first name to spell, but once you’ve mastered it you can expect a rollercoaster ride of hilarious selfies, laugh out loud memes and a delicious array of food shots from the wonderfully vivacious Miss Banks.
