Berlin-based Instagram competitor EyeEm is gearing up for the third edition of its Photo Hack Day, which they boast is “Europe’s largest image-centric hackathon.”

Held at an as yet unconfirmed location in Berlin on the weekend of June 1-2, the hackathon will go for 24 hours – the aim is to “rapidly prototype new photo applications that revolutionise the way we take, see and interact with pictures”. Last year, winners enjoyed a weekend trip to London where they held a pitch at the AKQA offices.

The photo hackathons have drawn big names in the past such as Facebook, Nokia and Getty Images. Ideas workshopped during the hackathon include Helmut, an app that scans analogue film, and Tourist Eraser, a nifty app for frustrated travellers sick of tourists taking over their totally awesome pictures of attractions.

Keep your eyes on their website for announcements on what’s in it for the winners and exact event details and schedules.
