Set up your contest
Define precisely what you expect from contestants.
Be aware that visibility is also a very attractive incentive for Instagram users. Provide your terms & conditions.
The average duration observed is 3 weeks.
Whether your contest is worldwide or restricted to specific countries, it will be broadcasted only to your target.

You can use several hashtags but 2 is plenty. You can also ask contestants to mention your brand in their caption (@brand).
