Instagram Has Made it All the Way to Sports Illustrated

by Eric Von Lehmden | July 18, 2012

For the first time ever, Sports Illustrated will be using Instagram photos in their magazine. On Wednesday, July 23rd the Sports Illustrated issue will feature a series of Instagram Photos taken by Sports Illustrated contributing photographer, Brad Mangin. Sports Illustrated commissioned Mangin to cover Spring Training and baseball teams in the western part of the United States. The resulting photos will be found in the issue's "Leading Off" section. Mashable.com reports that the decision to publish the Instagram photos was, "a decision born out of social networking’s impact on media and journalism." according to editor of Time Inc. Sports Group, Terry McDonell.

"This week’s Leading Off reflects the ’socialization’ of photojournalism," McDonell told Mashable in an email. "Great pictures, with intimate access to the MLB, shared with Instagram."

Be sure to check out the Sports Illustrated issue that hits stands Wednesday, July 23rd and let us know what you think of the Instagram photos.
