Instagram Contest Winner

We are happy to announce a winner in the “People at Scriptus 2016” Instagram contest. While there were a number of excellent photos posted to #ScriptusToronto, one in particular struck us as summarising the entire Scriptus experience.

Photo by Farah Khattak.

Farah Khattak spent the day supporting her husband, Salman’s table. Apparently she took loads of photos of people, most of whom were looking down at tables of writing fun; this makes for good times, but not great photos. Finally, she caught two of Toronto’s most zealous pen-lovers in the middle of the crowd—in the middle of a perfect show-and-tell moment—with Salman in the foreground. This scene is what Scriptus is all about: all sorts of people enjoying pens and writing, all together on one great day.

Our congratulations go to Farah on her perseverance and skill in taking this great photo!
