July 2019 Photo A Day Challenge : A Month of YOU

Photo a day /

Howdy! So I thought we might do something for the rest of the year, and that’s have theme months for photo a day. What do you think?

For July, we’re going to have a theme of About Me! Which means we’re going to explore ourselves and get to know each other through photos. I shared the idea with a group of people to test, and the overall reaction was so positive and exciting, and I just hope the rest of the community feels the same.

It’s not going to be a month of selfies, although if that’s your thing – go for it!, it’s going to be a month of sharing about you. You might have to take photos of photos or share older photos for some. For example, for the ‘my fave place in the world’ it might be on the other side of the world but you visited there in 2014… you’re welcome to share an older photo and tell us about it. The same goes for ‘I achieved this’. Maybe back in 2009 you got an award, gave birth or ran a marathon. Or maybe just yesterday you got to the bottom of the laundry pile. Celebrate all the wins, my friends.

I’m really excited about this month and hope you are too. Let’s do this!

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 I AM, so all you have to do is take a photo of you, or something about you. It’s a great one for starting off the month nice and easy!
+ 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.  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 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’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.
