how to play photo a day.

Photo A Day is a hugely popular photography challenge which I created way back in 2012. It’s a beautiful community project where every day people all over the world share photos, with over 25 MILLION photos have been shared to date. It’s HUGE.

Everyone is welcome to play along, and we’re inviting you to join in too.

Here’s how it works…

how to play

Each month a new photo a day list is revealed with daily prompts to inspire you to take a photo each day. They could be words like yellow, or open, or big, or light, or food, or really anything that will get you to start thinking creatively.

Each day you’ll simply look at the list, use the prompt as inspiration and take a photo. See? I told you it was easy. Don’t worry if you’re not the most awesome photographer in the world {I’ll tell you a secret, I’m not either}. The Photo A Day challenge is for everyone; beginners to brilliant. It’s not a competition.

Next, share your photo. You can share where ever you like. We have a busy Photo A Day Facebook group that I’d encourage you to join and share your photos there, alternatively {or additionally} share to Instagram placing the hashtag #FMSPAD in your caption so we can find your photos!

Each day our lovely team choose four awesome photos shared on the #FMSPAD hashtag and shares them on the @fms.photoaday Instagram account. You can check them out by following @LittleMomentsApp on Instagram. In our Facebook group we have a group of beautiful moderators who choose the Fab Four each day too. It’s a great way to celebrate photos and community members.
