April Photo A Day Challenge 2017

Fat Mum Slim /

Hello!

Yep, you can take that gob-smacked look off your face… it’s APRIL, already! ALREADY.

Here’s the fun list, and all the details you need to know on how to play Photo A Day. Let’s do this!

April Photo A Day Challenge 2017

HOW TO PLAY

+ Playing along is really simple! Just look at the list each day and take a photo using the prompt as inspiration. So, for example, Day 1 is BEGINS WITH T, so all you have to do is take a photo of something starting with the letter T!
+ You can then share your photo on either Facebook or Instagram or both! To share on Instagram, just upload with the hashtag #FMSPAD and you’re done {more details below if you need them though!} and to share on Facebook, upload to your personal page or jump into our Facebook group and share there.

HOW TO PLAY ON INSTAGRAM

+ Simply upload the photo to Instagram, add a caption {you could mention the day and the prompt in the caption}, add the hashtag #FMSPAD and then publish.
+ Check out the #FMSPAD hashtag to see all the other photos. Like them. Comment on them. Be part of the community.
+ Each day a Fab Four is picked from the photos shared on Instagram for the challenge. It’s four photos that have captured our attention from each prompt. Check the feed {@littlemomentsapp} to see the photos.
+ To make it easier to find all the daily photos, you can find and use the daily hashtags below. Simply add them to your caption when uploading to Instagram.  Alternatively, my App {The Little Moments App for iPhone/iPad} generates the daily hashtag for you automatically so it takes all the thinking out of it for you!

HOW TO SHARE ON FACEBOOK

+ Upload the photo to Facebook – you can either share on your personal page, on your business page {if you have one} or in our Facebook Photo A Day group {you’ll be added within 12 hours of requesting}, add a caption {you could mention the day and the prompt in the caption} and then publish.
+ Check out the photos shared in the group, or among your friends. Comment, like and be part of the photo-taking community.
+ Each day a Fab Four is picked from the photos shared in our Facebook group for the challenge by our lovely admin team. It’s four {or more} photos that have captured our attention from each prompt. The photos are made into a collage, shared and pinned to the top of the group.

HOW TO REMEMBER THE PROMPTS EASILY

+ For all devices and PC, we upload the prompts which you can download automatically into your phone or PC calendar. For Smartphones & Mac Calendar, click here. For HTML for web viewing, click here.
+ You can also print out the list, save it as your screensaver or save it to your camera roll.
+ If you’re a lucky iPhone or iPad owner, you can use the Little Moments App to remind you of what the prompts are, as well as make your photos a bit fancy. You can grab the App here.

    Hi!
    I clicked on the link for calender in this section in your “how to remember the prompt”-section, and thought that I only should get the list for April this year. But I got the hole year but it was not the same things on Mars in that promptlist like the ones in your earlier promptlist in the Marschallange photo of the day.
    So I wonder which one is the right one for Mars and April?

    My english is not that good, but I hope you understand what I mean.

    Thank you in advance for the answer ?

    Kind regards from Diana

    • Hello!

      I just checked and the prompts in the calendar are the same that I have here above?

      So you can refer to either, as they’re all the same. 🙂

        Hi again!

        I don’t get the same like the picture here above 🙁 In the picture and your list about the photochallange, the 1th April have “begins with a T” and in the list for calendar that I got when I clicked to get it to my phone the 1th April have “Yellow” as the first thing to photograph :/

          • Hello. Oh gosh! That’s so weird. That must be taking you to another year of prompts. Let me look into this for you.

          • Diana Hernandez

            Godmorgning =) Yes please, look into it. Would be fun to have it in the calendar like a reminder for what the “photooftheday” is. I missed when Mars started, so are looking forward to this one, and thought that I was out in a good time for Aprils “photoofthedaychallange”.

            Thank you in advance for your answer and all your help =D

            Kind regards Diana

          • Unfortunately I can’t replicate the issue. The only solution I can figure is you might have to add your prompts manually into your calendar. So sorry!

          • Diana Hernandez

            Goodmorgning =) Have you had a chance to look on why I get a different one then you for the calendar?
            Thanks in advance =)

  • I love these photo a day challenges! Thank you for hosting this!

    Letterbox? Is that an Australian term/word?
