A few years back some friends and I started working on the Instabet project, a crowdsourced collection of Instagram-ed alphabet letters that can be used to create your own photo-words. The talented Analogp1xel even created this handy Instabet tool for quickly creating photo-words.

The project, which was started in late 2010, is around 3,000 images and growing. Here’s how you can help:

Take a clear picture of a letter or symbol.
Post it to Instagram with the #instabet tag AND a tag of the what letter you are posting.
So if you post an “S” photo, tag it “#s #instabet”
If you are posting a symbol, you can use a description of the symbol (#comma #ampersand #hashtag etc).
