The 100 best Instagram accounts of 2016

Hey, I’m Chris. I wrote this article and I’m also the founder and Editor of DailyTekk. Lets connect on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube. Check back daily!

Wow I can’t believe it’s already year 2 in our top 100 Instagram series. Last year’s list was amazing (and actually contained 150 awesome Instagram accounts) but this year is equally stunning — if not more so! This year you will find a LOT of nature, outdoor and adventure photography. I guess that’s just what I ran into most over the last 12 months. Regular readers know that I build my top 100 lists over the period of 1 year, adding items to an Evernote list as I organically encounter them. And the result is a list of the 100 best Instagram accounts I ran into during that time that I think you should check out over the next 12 months! Note: I’m trying to only include people on this list once so if someone appeared last year they shouldn’t be on this year’s list unless I made a mistake.

If you’re new to DailyTekk, be sure to check out our other annual top 100 lists. This is already year 5 for our top 100 websites and we’ve already put up a brand new list this year of the top 100 podcasts. But don’t miss the top 100 YouTube channels, top 100 Viners and top 100 Pinterest accounts!
