For our Captured: Your Most Stunning Music Festival Snaps contest with Smashbox, we sent you forth into the Indio sun with one objective: Find the best, most eye-catching example of festival fun and Instagram the hell out of it. Mission accomplished, style soldiers!

During the two weekends of music and madness in Indio, 500 of you submitted your hot, hip images with the #FestivalSmashbox tag collecting a total of 17,961 "likes" and exposing over 100,000 Instagrammers' eyes to all that captured beauty. No small feat there. Respect.
Of course, only one image could lasso the prize of two VIP tickets to any 2012 music festival, round-trip airfare, and a travel bag stuffed Smashbox beauty essentials — the stunning, sparkly crowd shot taken by iPhone photog Ms. Farris Green of Los Angeles. Take a look.
Now, let Farris tell you about her weekend at the fest:
"This year, it was a mix of group dance parties as it sprinkled rain, dancing/huddling in the crowd to break from the wind during Radiohead, and dancing like a crazy woman during Justice's performance on the main stage on the final day (which is where I took my winning photo). Oh...and who can forget that freakish Tupac hologram... Definitely danced to him, too!"
Sounds like fun, Farris. Just remember, next year’s ticket to dance is on us!
