We’re kicking off Giving Tuesday early this year! Your donation today will be matched up to $10K, doubling your impact! If you donate $50 today, the Reader will receive $100.

The Reader is now a community-funded nonprofit newsroom. Can we count on your support to help keep us publishing?

Back in May, we asked you to show us the best of Chicago through your eyes. . . and your Instagram filters. With almost 600 submissions to our Instagram photo contest, it was pretty tough to select a single favorite image—so can we choose 30? Good. Because that’s what we did. Check out this slide show of our staff’s faves; for even more photos of the best this city has to offer, go to #bestofchi on Instagram.
