The Council of Fashion Designers of America is showing its love to some of Instagram's best picture-takers and filter users, with its inaugural Fashion Instagrammer of the Year Award.

Among the eight nominees -- selected by CFDA committee members including Rachel Zoe and The Coveteur’s Stephanie Mark -- are @aguynamedpatrick, @amy_stone@bessnyc4@dapperlou@donalddrawbertson@hokaytokay, @paridust, and @troprouge. The winner will be chosen based on the amount of "likes" from Insta images tagged with the hashtag #MyCFDA. And if you don't have Insta, you can still vote for your favorite user on cfda.com through May 30, when the winner will be announced.

While the winner won't necessarily be receiving an actual award at the ceremony, held June 2, he or she are invited to attend the award show and document their CFDA experience through the group's Instagram account. Fun.

With Lupita Nyong'o set to present the Womenswear Designer of the Year award and Rihanna set to receive the Fashion Icon Award, it's sure to be a star-studded event. Let's just hope there won't be too many filters required.
