April photo a day: suggest a prompt

Fat Mum Slim /

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

  • 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.

    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

  • Cat

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

    Thanks for the inspiration 🙂
