Snapchat is the fastest growing image sharing platform, yet there is no official API.
So, we made our own and hacked together a social image sharing contest for people to snap pics relating to the theme of the day. Users can upvote and downvote on other submissions for each day's contest.
We sent over 42,000 snaps since the start of the hackathon
We downloaded all of the responses
and turned this into a contest!
