Now the Philadelphia based indie agency is working with SEPTA to expand that creative platform, asking consumers to show SEPTA from a fresh perspective a their camera phones, in an Instagram contest that tells their SEPTA story.

Hosted on the popular smart-phone photo application, Instagram users are encouraged to show a fresh perspective of their daily SEPTA experience by uploading a picture and using the hashtag #iseptaphilly. Approved photos will be aggregated into a photo stream that lives on
