April photo a day: suggest a prompt

Next week I’ll be revealing the photo a day list of prompts for April. I’ve got the draft pulled together and ideas for the design, but thought maybe you’d like some input. I often get messages and emails with people wanting to share ideas for the prompts {thank you very much if you’re one of those people!}, and now I’m opening it up here too.

In case you’re not sure what I’m talking about, photo a day is something I create each month. There is a word for each day of the month that inspires people to take photos. For example this month there were prompts like up, a smile, 5pm and bedside. You can see the past lists here.


Do you have a prompt you’d like to see on the list? Leave it in the comments below!

Note: Thank you to those who share their ideas. I just wanted to put a little disclaimer so no feelings get hurt. I may not use your prompt. I might use it in another month later this year. I will definitely take each on board and decide whether they work though. Thanks again. x

  1. What's in your purse, socks, shampoo, favorite piece of jewelry, something neon, your steering wheel, favorite candy, unique feature on something alive and texture.

  2. Hi I just started following your photo a day challenges in the beginning of March and I love it. Not sure if you've done this yet…but how about “triple” or “triplet”??? πŸ™‚

  5. What about some sort of emotion? I like to interpret the challenges in a meaningful way and that would be interesting to see since everyone will have such a personal photo. While it's fun to see everyone's forks, it does get people to think outside of the box. I guess that will put the 'challenge' in 'photo challenge'!

  21. Hi
    I don't have a prompt to share but I hope that you will change the # you are using. We all know you started this but it would make the feed so much more fun to view on instagram if it was just us, the fatmumslim photoaday people.

    Just my two cents. Im hooked either way

    Jenny, or Samandramones, lol

  22. Hi, I am loving watching the instagram feed fill up for each month of the photo a day challenge! (I'm catameringue on ig)

    My suggestions: purple, rainbow, favourite food, friend, crafty, mirror, party, art, and fridge.

  24. I am in the process of doing another 365 project however I am totally down for doing this in 2013, because the project im doing now is really based on being thankful for something each day. I love the random prompts of this one though, kinda reminds me of a scavanger hunt. πŸ˜‰ here's my word ideas….baby, laugh, Favorite CD, magazine, ducks, flip flops, favorite team, childhood toy

  25. Just started following you and I'm loving it! looking forward to April's daily theme!

  26. It's not a prompt for a day… but would it also be possible for you to include the list as text in the blog posts? I like to put my list into Evernote so I can check it on the go, and move the ones I've done to the bottom of the list.
