Check out our photo a day

Here it is! Photo a day August challenge list

Fat Mum Slim /

It’s time! Time for another photo a day list. Are you ready?

I can’t believe that I’m consistently taken a photo every single day this year {ok, I missed one but made up for it the next day}. That’s a pretty good effort. I’m the sort of person who gives up diets by lunchtime and can’t keep a routine. But this, I’m DOING this.

I’ve even managed it while moving house and other big life changes. Have you been doing photo a day? How do you fit it into your life? How do you manage to remember?

Now on to the August list. This month is challenging. People said they didn’t want any repeats from previous lists, so I listened. And I created. The reason I often do repeats is because people haven’t played every month, but most of all it challenges people to be creative. With the same prompt, you don’t have to take the same photo you’ve taken before – you have to think outside the box. Not that it matters for this month, because they’re all new.

The hashtag for August is #photoadayaug

If you’re new to photo a day, click here for instructions on how to play.  In a nutshell, just follow the list, use the daily prompt as inspiration and take a photo. Share that photo anywhere you like, Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Twitter etc.

Here’s some more details on the list, explaining what each prompt might mean – BUT you can interpret it however you like. There are no rules.

1. Outside: Take a photo of outside {outdoors} or something outside of something. So a person outside a door, a lolly {candy} outside a lolly {candy} jar.
2. One: This can be anything. The number 1. The word one. A single item.
3. Coin: This can be money. Perhaps a coin you see on the ground. One from your wallet.
4. Somewhere you sat: Where have you sat today? Take a photo.
5. Logo: Take a photo of a logo, on something you buy, somewhere you see it or something you have at home. Or even your own logo? If you have one.
6. Writing: This could be your own writing, something you’re reading, or something someone wrote to you.
7. 8 o’clock: Take a photo of whatever you’re doing/seeing at 8am or 8pm. Or both.
8. Glasses: This could be drinking glasses, sunglasses or spectacles. Great creative in how you shoot them.
9. Messy: What’s a mess? Take a photo of it. Again, be creative. Think outside the box.
10. Ring: This could be a ring {like a wedding ring}, or a circle or even someone on the phone? It could be a whole host of things. Even gymnast rings.
11. Purple: Take a photo of something purple.
12. Spoon: Take a photo of a spoon, the eating utensil.
13. Simple: Take a photo of simplicity, whatever this means to you. Perhaps it’s a really simple photo {without much distraction} or a photo of something simple in your life {a simple dinner like eggs on toast or something}.
14. Arrow: Take a photo of an arrow.
15. Ready: What’s ready right now? Are you ready to explore? Is your lunch ready? Are you ready to leave? This one will get you thinking.
16. Food: Take a photo of food, real or play.
17. Faces: Do you see faces in things? In clouds, on cars? Take a photo. Or take a pic of real faces.
18. Inside: Go outside and look in, take a photo. Or take a photo of something inside something else.
19. Hole: Take a photo of a hole.
20. Today: Take a photo of something in your day today.
21. Cool: This can be something in temperature or something that’s ‘hip’.
22. Home: What reminds you of home? Or even take a photo of your home. Or simple a house.
23. Pair: Take a photo of a pair, two people, salt and pepper, two things that go together.
24. Path: Take a photo of a path, or your feet on the path.
25. Fresh: Take a photo of something fresh. Like fresh food, or the weather {if it’s fresh} or something cool {“That’s fresh!”}
26. Dream: What did you dream about last night? Or what are your ‘hopes and dreams’?
27. Tap: Take a photo of a tap, or someone or something ‘tapping’.
28. Clock: Take a photo of a time-telling device.
29. Down: Look down, take a photo. Or however you want to interpret this!
30. Card: Take a photo of a card, a business card, a loyalty card, a gift card or something else.
31. Hidden: Take a photo of something hidden.

So that’s the list. I hope you’ll play along.

Where should you share your photos? There are many places you can share your photos. Here are few:
♥ Instagram – just upload your photo each day and add the hashtag #photoadayaug
♥ Facebook – add your photo to your personal page or onto my Facebook page
♥ Twitter – share your photo and add the hashtag #photoadayaug
♥ Flickr – share your photo to the group pool

If you have any questions at all, please let me know in the comments and I’ll get back to you.

And if you’re playing along, let me know in the comments where you’ll be sharing your photos. x

    Interesting list! I’ve been tempted to do this for a while now but wasn’t sure if I’d be able to stick with it. I’m going to bite the bullet this month though and give it a shot! How exciting 🙂

  • Thank you! What a wonderful process to support those creative juices. Photo a Day came to my attention just after I purchased a new camera. Perfect serendipity.

Thanks for creating this and sharing your ideas…am posting on my blog this week some things I have created with my IG photos 🙂

  • Gary H

    A friend had started a facebook event to serve as a reminder each day, and there are many people from several countries participating now. I love it, I have been doing it for several months now, I post them on instagram (@garyharding), and on the event wall ( I also love your blog! My favorite entry there, the story of meeting your husband, awesome!

  • Melanie

      I don’t know. I’ve been thinking the same thing!

  • Christy

    I am having so much fun with the Photo A Day challenge. 🙂 I have several friends who participate as well, and it’s a lot of fun to see how everyone interprets the prompt. I will be posting on my facebook wall in a specific photo album just for the August challenge. Christy Burns

  • Will be my first Photo A Day challenge, but I will be putting a spin on it. My blog is about my business where I make Wedding Invitations. I will be putting up a ‘Wedding’ related photo for each prompt. I will be sharing these photos on my blog

  • After wishing I could join in but knowing I’d never grab the camera and actually post a pic on facebook or the blog every single day II finally got an iphone last week and promptly joined up with Instagram. Now it’s going to be super easy so I’m finally joining in and I’ll be sharing my pics on Instagram. I’m 1onthesunnyside.

  • Sandras

    Hi Chantelle, thanks for another great list, I’ve been going since January and the repeats have never bothered me. I just thought they were an extra challenge. But that’s very lovely of you to accommodate the requests for new prompts and the list looks fun. I’m a little like you, I don’t normally see things through, so I’m a little baffled how I have kept going every day. I suspect sharing on, and being slightly addicted to, instagram helps! Thanks again Sandra x (@s_gale)

    • fatmumslim

      Thanks Sandra. I love this comment. And thanks for sticking it out. xx

  • Kai

    I’m running it on a brand new blog 🙂 Really looking forward to it too!

  • Tima

    I’ve had so much fun with this. I started in January. I’ve taken March and July off because of vacations without internet connections. But I’ll be starting back again in August. I have a huge calendar above my desk that I write EVERYTHING on. So I pencil in the day’s photo so I can see it at a glance all day and remember to take my pictures. Thanks so much for doing this. It’s really inspired me to get back into photography.

  • i’ve never played before so i’m going to DO IT in august! 🙂 on instagram @sar3096. yay!

  • Just wanna tell you how much I have enjoyed July so far, and will definitely be joining in the fun in August. I share my photos at Thanks again! 🙂

  • Lisa

    I have not been able to complete a month yet. So my resolve is to complete Aug. I will be sharing my photos on Instagram and Facebook. Thanks for doing this. I may not keep up but I love it and I love it when my friends get involved.

    • fatmumslim

      You can do it! xx

  • Hompsa

    I try take photo every day…
    And share those in Instagram @hompsa

  • LOVE your new layout for the list, with the weekends highlighted! Cool!
    Joined in July
    I post on Instagram + Twitter @annembray

    • Question: I’d like to use your Photo A Day badge frame at bottom of site. I’ll put one of my images in there and linkback to the “How to Play” page. May I?

      • fatmumslim

        Absolutely! Thank you for asking. xx

  • I was thrilled to see that this goes on every month. July was my first month and I’ve loved it!! I’ll be continuing to post my photos on – come visit!

  • Kelsey

    I love doing this! So much fun!

  • I have been looking for a photo a day challenge! I will be doing this one! Other don’t really give much direction but this one looks fun! I will be sharing my my blog, instagram, FB and anywhere else!

  • Oh, that’s fine! I will continue to post my photos on my blog. You can find them here:

  • Love love love photoaday. I get excited for the lists each month. I share on Twitter, instagram @aubreyzaruba Facebook and my blog

  • Erica

    I’m going to try and start this month! Missed out the first few days last month and so then just didn’t start… hopefully will be sharing on facebook and instagram (ekdavey14) if i figure out how to use it!

  • Nora Johnson

    Starting my 3rd Photo a Day in August, having so much fun! Sharing on Facebook and Instagram, lots of friends have joined in. Thanx for the inspiration Chantelle!

  • I do try to keep up! But sometimes life just gets in the way! I have a new dslr withe an eyefi card in it which send directly to my phone, this will make it easier for moi! I also have for the past couple of months had the list as my lock screen, so every time I unlock my phone I get a reminder, rather than having to go to the saved photo to check what the prompt is! Does anyone else do that?

  • Glenny

    Awesome list! I’ve been playing since march, I found your website in the middle of february.

    Thanks for coming up with this idea and the lists for each month.

  • Hi! I started following you on instagram a week or two ago. Up until then I had not heard of the photo a day. I do my own photo a day on Facebook in the form of a quote or something inspiring ..I will be doing yours this august and hopefully the rest of the year, I will be posting the photos on my instagram account @saregiak and as a joint post on my blogs-
    Looking forward to it!

  • Whoohoo! Mine will be on Instagram, Twitter, and Flickr all under the username of cinnabubbles. Feel free to follow along!!

  • Paula Elder

    Love the new list. I started back on the 1st Feb and plan to do the whole year. As a stay at home mum it really helps explore my creative side and look into my everyday life. Some days it really helps when everything else isn’t going to plan. A few of my friends have started too! Thank you for starting this up Chantelle and all the work that goes into it every month. You can follow me on Instgram & pinterest as Paulamikegracie

    Tumblr –
    Pinterest –

  • Anna Johansson

    I just found the photo a day challage this month but I am already hooked and I will definitely take on the August list. I added a little twist by adding the prompt into the frame of the photo. I have not yet figured out how to knot the August photos together. I am sharing in Instagram, @egoannaj.

  • I’ll be playing along on my blog @

  • This was my first month doing any kind of photo a day challenge. It has been fun sharing on Instagram (timecrafted) & seeing how others interpret the themes. I’ve also do catch up posts with the photo a day pics. Looking forward to seeing what everyone is snapping next month too! :>

  • July has been my first month of joining in, but I’ve kind of lost my mojo!! Going to try again though 🙂 I’ll be at _mammajoy_ on instagram. This Aug list looks awesome 🙂

  • Not to sound like a broken record, but thanks for making this list of challenges once again! July was my first month of actively participating in the challenge and I can’t wait to continue for August! I love being reminded to think outside the box and get creative at least once every day. 🙂

    I share my photo-a-day challenges on Instagram (@apey83) & Twitter (@april_denise83) simultaneously, and Pinterest. Then what I do is make a collage of all of the photos I took (broken up throughout the month, like the first 10 days, then the rest of the month), with the day and prompt written on each individual photo and share that on my personal blog/Tumblr/Facebook.

  • Jenn Bennett

    This is my first time doing this so we’ll see how I do. What a great, fun idea.

  • I have tried a few times to do this – I really enjoy it even though I am not a good photographer. I seem to recall you tweeted something that allowed you to put the prompts into an iPhone calendar? Are you able to supply that link again, if I didn’t imagine it that is 🙂 Thanks

  • THis will be my 2nd month, and I’ll be posting them on my blog!

  • This will be my first month! Yay! Just joined Instagram and got a new DSLR last month so I am all set and ready to go. Will be posting daily on twitter @claimourspace and/or Instagram “claimingourspace” and plan on doing a collage of the August photos on our blog http://www.claimingourspace at the beginning of Sept.

  • Jasmine

    I definitely will be doing this! It’s my first time doing a Photo A Day Challenge, so I really want this to be a creative project for me!

    Instagram @jazzyisabel

  • I am so doing this! Excited!!! ♥

    • Been telling myself to do this January but I was afraid I might be bad and fail at it. Here’s to being hopeful, that this month is only just the beginning! 🙂

  • izzy

    Cool! I love this list so much! Keep it up! Update for september next!

  • Chantelle, thanks! This is an interesting list, and your prompts really helped stir the imagination! 🙂

  • I am going to try this, I have tried doing this a couple months ago and failed, mostly because I didn’t have the list at hand. But I will do it this next month. 😀

  • Lara

    I have been doing “photoaday” since April, and am hooked – my kids are great at thinking of ideas too – which brings out the creativity in all of us!! Definitely great for taking time out of the day to day routines of life, and to share on Instagram and FB is wonderful. Also love that celebs are on board such as Pink! I have managed to recruit a few friends each ,onth and plan on marketing through a noticebaord at work as well.
    Thanks so much Chantelle #fatmumslim
