TV debates (or rather lack of) has caught the attention of voters but in this general election there’s another platform raking in the likes.

Today I learned that the hashtags: #VoteLabour, #Grime4Corbyn and #VoteJeremy return over 50,000 results on Instagram.

Now type in the search: ‘#VoteConservative’, there are only 3,638 results. ‘#VoteTory’ has just 799 results and ‘#Votetheresamay’ a staggering 22 results.

So what’s happening? Behind the selfies and filters, Instagram has essentially become the Creatives’ pot of gold.

It seems like those making the most of the social media during this election are labour-supporting artists?!?

Here is a thread of my Top 10 ‘Labour-supporting’ illustrations found on Instagram:
