With the Maccabiah Games underway, Haaretz has invited readers to take part in a competition of a different nature – the "Israeli moment" Instagram photo contest.

Dozens have sent in their snapshots, which can be seen on the project's Facebook page.

But the contest is not over yet: you still have a chance to win an official gold state medal to mark the 19th Maccabiah.

To enter the contest:

* Capture your 'Israeli moment and share it on Instagram.

* Don’t forget to tag the image with #Israelimoment and #Israelmint.

* The deadline to submit entries is July 31.

* A panel of judges from Haaretz and the Israel Coins and Medals Corp. will select three winning photos.

* The winners will receive a limited-edition gold, silver or bronze medal, bearing the emblem of the State of Israel and a stylized Maccabiah torch surrounded by stars of David like those in the 19th Maccabiah logo.
