January 2021 | Photo A Day Challenge

Fat Mum Slim /

Are you ready to say goodbye to 2020?

And embrace a brand new year? Here is the list for the first month of 2021. I wanted to make it light and fun, and vibrant. I hope that’s how we kick off 2021 and that we can start creating good memories.

I hope you’ll come along for the ride.

HOW TO PLAY
+ Playing along could not be easier! I promise. Just look at the list each day and take a photo using the prompt as inspiration. So, for example, Day 1 is THIS IS ME, so all you have to do is take a photo of you!
+ 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 here 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. 

HOW TO SHARE ON FACEBOOK
+ Upload the photo 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. You’re also welcome to share on your personal page, if that’s how you like to roll.
+ 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 need any help with the prompts, leave a comment below and I can share some ideas.

1. THIS IS ME
We’d love to see you! Take a selfie, put on the timer, or share an old photo. I wanted to choose this prompt, because for many January 1st is a time to plan for being better, different, or setting goals… when who you are is perfectly OK too. So share you, right now. Perfectly, imperfect.
