The best shots are going to be displayed in a London Gallery, which I find incredibly exciting, and I wish I was in the UK now so I could see this in person.

Images are being collated through Instagram using the hashtag  #WEARETEKKEN  and #TT2 (Tekkan Tag 2) and there have been some pretty cool entries so far. I like to think that people who are uploading are not necessarily trying to win; that it’s more about having an avenue to share their love of the game and get creative with Instagram filters (like they need an excuse!).
