When you open your Instagram feed, do you see hundreds of brunch photos and duck faces? If so, you're doing it wrong. Every year, Westword adapts its Denver Web Awards to incorporate rising digital trends, and our most exciting addition this year was the category of Best Instagram Account -- which Klosowski (TheBigKlosowski) won for his striking (and expertly filtered) scenes from Denver and a variety of trips across the country. Allen Klosowski may have fancy credentials as a professional photographer and a social-media expert at the Denver Post, but street cred oozes from his Instagram account.
If you enjoy otherworldly photos, be sure to follow him, and continue reading for more of our favorite photos from his award-winning acount.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
