July Photo A Day Challenge 2017

Fat Mum Slim /

Hello you. I’m just quickly popping in because June has passed us by {almost!} and we’re jumping right into July. Are you coming along for the ride?

July Photo A Day Challenge 2017

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 YUM, so all you have to do is take a photo of something delicious!
+ 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 to Facebook – you can either share on your personal page, on your business page {if you have one} or 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.
+ 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.

    I can’t post in the FB group anymore. I was booted and blocked :'(

    • What happened? Can I look into it for you?

      • littlebee81

        That would be helpful. I don’t know if I posted too many photos, or I posted a photo that wasn’t allowed *which I am hoping I didn’t*. But I wasn’t given a reason why. I loved posting in the FB group.

    Just found you, so glad I did – absolutely on board to play with the July photo a day challenge. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Sinds yesterday, the daily hastags don ‘t work for my photos anymore, my photos are not popping up when I search on Instagram? Even not when I add the incorrect #fms_thiscouldbeanalbumcover
    Is this a known issue?

    • Hashtags have been playing up on IG. Is the issue still around?

      • Mw Monique

        Luckily not for me anymore, happened only 2 days in a row. But I read on the internet that it happens more often. Thx for replying!
