April photo a day challenge list

Hello! Are you ready for a month of fun? I’m pretty darn excited about this month’s list. It feels fun. Do you agree?

So let me explain a little bit about what this is and how it works. This {above} is a photo a day challenge list for April. The idea is that you use your camera phone or camera and take a photo each day using the list as inspiration. For example: with the prompt ‘your reflection’ you would take a photo of yourself in a mirror, in the reflection of a lake, or even in the reflection of a window or kettle. It can by any reflection. There are no rules for this except to have fun!

So once you’ve taken a photo, what do you do with it? Share it! Here’s how to share it on different platforms:

INSTAGRAM: Upload your photo to Instagram, add a sweet filter and put #photoadayApril in the caption so others can see your photos {share to Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr etc from Instagram if you like}

TWITTER: Upload your photo to Instagram, add some words to describe it and use the hashtag #photoadayApril so others can see your photos

FACEBOOK: Create an album titled something like, Photo a Day April, and make the album public, then upload your photos. It’s a good idea to upload the list too so you can refer to it and others can see what you’re doing. You can also share your photos on my Fat Mum Slim Facebook page. Or tag my page in your photos instead.

PINTEREST: Upload your photos to a board, and use the hashtag #photoadayApril so that others can search for them.

BLOGS & TUMBLR: Upload your photos to your blog or Tumblr and share with the world.

FLICKR: Share your photos in the Photo a day April group.

You can share the links to where ever you’re sharing the photos in the comments below if you like.

Once you’ve uploaded your own photo then go and look at other people’s photos, comment on them, like them and be part of this great community.

In March there were over 1,052,000 photos shared on Instagram alone. I think if we could count the photos on every platform we’d have well over 1.5 million. Well over! Good work everyone! Thanks for playing along.

Please feel free to share the list where ever you like. It’s our list as a community, so please put it up where ever you want.

Lastly, please note that the hashtag is #photoadayApril. It was changed from the format we’ve used in previous months due to people jumping on our hashtag and creating other challenges. The hashtag to use for April is indeed #photoadayApril

I’m looking forward to seeing all the photos in April! Let’s have some photo-taking fun!

Let me know if you have any questions, and I’ll answer them below. x

  1. This is fun!! I will definitely be partaking in this!!! How can we share it via blog?? Others have hashtags… do we just tag it the same way we tag blog entries?

    *new to blogging . _ . *

  2. I haven't missed a day of the March one so I'm in!
    Such a fantastic idea Chantelle…..thanks for sharing with everyone!
    PS I've tried to tag your page in my photos but I can't get it to come up! I'll keep trying ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. OK – My NEW YEAR is going to start on the FIRST OF APRIL – time to focus on starting the New Years Resolutions and start my Photo a Day project!

  4. Thank you, again for the inspiration.
    I'll be joining in, again and hoping to actually finish it.
    Wanna follow?

  5. It'll be my first time to participate. Been seeing this on my friend's Facebook so I got curious. I tried doing Project 365 but I lost interest in it even before I got halfway through. I think is very doable. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!

  6. Thank you so much for that great project. I started my first photoaday-thing this month. Ok, for me it was an “a photo almost every second day”-thing, but I had a lot of fun and can't wait for april to begin.

  7. I'm in! New to blogging and instagram. I was too late for the March challenge, but I'm raring to go for April. Thanks so much for putting this together. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I started doing the photo a day challenge on my blog about halfway through March, and I've only missed a couple of days. It has been fun and I look forward to April's list. I am also doing the hair photos. I really enjoy your blog!

  9. I've enjoyed looking at everyone's March photos so much that I've decided to join in the fun for April. I'll post my first photo with info about the challenge on my blog (and facebook) tomorrow. This is a great idea…thanks for hosting it ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Hello Chantelle!!!
    I am happy to start with you this project for April.
    I have watched February and March and apart from looooving the photos i also got really jealous ๐Ÿ™‚
    I will make a post about it on my blog and will be posting there:

  11. Might attempt this one. I'm on a photojournal website called blipfoto.com so I'll post mine on there as well as on Twitter x

  12. Does it have to be via Instagram? Ive got a Blackberry so I can;t use it! Can I just take a pic on my BB and tweet as per normal?

  13. I came over from the blog 5 minutes Just for me. I am so excited to see such a fun challenge. I think I will have to try this out. I am excited to see so many interesting ways to participate.

    I will be posting pictures on my blog.

    http://pineconesandacorn.blogspot.com as well as my pinterest pasge of the same name.

    Thank you for sharing such a fun project and the opportunity to meet some new bloggers.

  18. I did most of Feb and March so I'll definitely be participating in April. I'll be using StreamZoo, which is similar to Instagram, but on Android.

  19. I kinda don't understand some of the numbers. For example the colour one, mail, cold, how you feel today and circle.. Can you please explain to me each one? <3 btw I started it today :-*

    • Hey anon. Hope this helps:

      Colour: Take a photo of something colourful
      Mail: Take a photo of your mail, a mailbox etc
      Cold: Take a photo of something cold, the weather, inside your freezer, a drink etc
      How you feel today: Take a photo of your mood today. If it's happy, what represents happy? A smiley face, a blue sky, your own face smiling?
      Circle: Take a photo of a circle. A wheel? A ball? Anything round.


  20. I am so excited to do this challenge! I found out about it Mid March and knew I wanted to be part of it for the next month! Great way to get us bloggers together ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. I just found this on Pinterest. I'm a horrible photographer, but I'm getting my blogging juices flowing again. I discovered your blog and loved this idea. Thanks for being my April inspiration. Best to you!

  22. This will be fun! But couldn't it end on “something that makes you HAPPY/EXCITED/GIDDY/SOME OTHER POSITIVE WORD” instead of “sad”?? Fun challenge ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Jumping on board this month & excited to be expanding my photo skills (& branching out from only taking photos of the Bubba). Such a great concept and I'm glad it's run each month!

    I'm uploading mine to twitter @MrsW86 ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Hi. Really enjoying your photo a day challenges. How do we tag your page in our facebook photos? I tried and your page does not come up for tagging… unless I'm doing it wrong. ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Hi,

    Got to your page through a friend's on facebook and ohh boy am I glad. Had joined the Feb one, though a little late, but really missed it when it ended. Thanks for making me look forward to the April month.
    I am not very good with taking photos, but sure as hell enjoy this. Thanks !!

    Taking the challenge on my blog http://carelesswalk.blogspot.com/.

  26. Joining this month on my blog menarethattheymighthavejoy.blogspot.com and on fb (pics posted on your fb page as I haven't figured out how to tag you in the photos/albums).

  27. What inspiration! I happened to see your list on Pinterest. Last night I had been going over my own little blog and wanted to get back to writing a little something regularly again. So I am combining your April challenge with renewing my blog on a daily basis. You'll find my pictures there. They may not be great, but it will be fun! Thank you so much for your inspiration and, if you happen to want to wander by … I can be found at http://www.seriouslyawkwarddude.blogspot.com. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  28. So I can post them on a pinterest page and link them to your page / blog? How do I do that using#PHOTOADAYAPRIL?

  29. This is an awesome idea. ๐Ÿ™‚ I tried to do a few last month and this month I would like to try to do all of them. I created a Page devoted to this on my blog. Love it!!! Thanks for sharing !!!

  30. What would you do for day 3?
    Like a picture of your mailbox or something you got in the mail?

  31. I started playing later in March, but just learned I should be linking them to you.

    I am doing April with some other facebook friends, but cannot figure out how to get my pictures to link over to you. When I try to tag, it doesnt actually tag you.

    I have tried a few different things and nothing seems to work. Got any advice?

  32. Awesome! I have been waiting for April's cause I missed the beginning of March. And yes, i have the same question as Amber P. I couldn't get any code off your image to put in with the HTML so it would link to you. I could only save your “image” and upload it as a photo on my blog. Not trying to steal your idea! Would link to you if I could!

  33. I LOVE THIS! When will you be posting the May photo challenge? I am so happy to have found you xoxo I cannot wait to take part!

  34. I have been loving the photo challenges since they started this year and haven't missed a day (although been late with posting a few times) just wondering if you will continue this for a whole year? looking forward to May's list!
