QC (Queen City) Baton is a collaborative photo project to show the world what life is like here in the 603!

Using Instagram as a platform we will collectively showcase what’s happening in the city via folks like you – one “baton holder” at a time. SEE RULES HERE

Below are just a few examples taken from RDUBaton. Click through to get a feel for the kinds of images and captions that create a sense of place:

FUN FACT: In 2014, RDU Baton was voted ‘Best Local Person to Follow on Instagram’ in the Indy Week Best of the Triangle 2014. Wouldn’t it be cool if we could do the same? Sign up for the baton HERE!

The Founders of RDU Baton:

Brittany Iery (@brittanyiery) and Susannah Brinkley (@slbrinkley) founded RDU Baton in 2012 out of their shared love for the culture in the Triangle region. They were inspired by photographer John de Guzman’s Big Apple counterpart, NYC Baton, and he graciously allowed them to start this Triangle version. The co-founders stepped down from RDU Baton in 2014 to pursue new projects.
