imgScrimmage is a social catalyst platform that plants the seed of a story or a moment by prompting continuous engagement. Letting the world speak in photos, imgScrimmage sets experiences into motion that cultivate spontaneous interaction among users.

In an increasingly fragmented world, shared events are among the last remaining real-world connection for many people. And while social networking can serve to bring people closer together, it does so on a superficial level. You only get a virtual connectedness, lacking the satisfaction of a significant, real and enriching interaction.

Not to mention, there’s no true motivation to capture photo-worthy moments with today’s social media outlets. You can go days or weeks without posting a photo, existing in a limbo of inactive connections that become less relevant and less connected over time.

Where does imgScrimmage take the lead in social networks? It converts experiences into memories while consistently inspiring users to engage with featured content. Unlike current popular mediums that join users together through shared photos and videos, imgScrimmage offers a platform for authentic moments through the satisfaction of significant, real and enriching interaction. imgScrimmage was created to change the capability of social networks.

imgScrimmage was created to usher in a fundamental change to the passive photo-sharing paradigm.

imgScrimmage strengthens connections by changing how people interact with a moment. Each user has the opportunity to create a story through genuine interactions that capture how each of us see and experience the world around us. imgScrimmage is there for every occasion – whether it be a scavenger hunt, a dare, or simply asking, “How’s your day going?”

imgScrimmage is fun and easy to use. Start connecting with a few simple steps!

Once upon a time, Alexander Vandervert and his friends decided to play a game in their group chat. They randomly asked each other to take a picture of what they were doing at certain times and send it. The game evolved into dares and other challenges, and Alexander began noticing longer chats and more conversation — essentially, a stronger connection. imgScrimmage was born, and has grown tremendously since then.
