January 2023 | It’s photo challenge time!

I don’t know about you, but I’m eager to put 2022 behind me, and jump into 2023. I’m doing everything to make sure this year is as good as it possibly could be {23 is my favourite number after all, how could it not?}, and I’m even making the first photo a day of the year as bubbly, and happy as it can possibly be.

I mean, look at those squiggles… don’t they positively scream ‘2023 IS GOING TO BE AN AMAZING YEAR’?

If you’ve been here before, welcome back. If you’re new here, welcome aboard, we’re so happy you’re here.

What is a Photo A Day challenge?

It started 11 years ago this month, and was a fleeting idea to be creative. I created a challenge list and encouraged people to jump aboard and share photos. It quickly gained momentum, and never stopped. We have a bustling Facebook group filled with keen photo-takers, and an active community on Instagram as well.

Below you’ll find all the details for the January challenge. If you have any questions, you can email me and I’m happy to help.

how to play photo a day

+ To play on Instagram, simply check out the list for the daily prompt, and then snap a photo using that as inspiration. Share the photo to your feed and include the hashtag #FMSPAD in your caption. We also have daily hashtags to find photos better {see below}. Over on our @fms.photoaday Instagram account, we love showing off photos from our community. You can look at the #FMSPAD hashtag to see all the great photos from our community.

+ To play on Facebook, you can share to your personal feed, or jump over and join our private Photo A Day Facebook group and share there.

We have a beautiful bunch of moderators in our Facebook group who select the photos from each day to highlight and give a little extra love in the community. It’s a fun, friendly place to get involved.


+ To make things easier, you can download the prompts automatically into your phone or PC calendar. For Smartphones & Mac Calendar, click here. For HTML for web viewing, click here.

I look forward to seeing your photos! x
