June 2024 Photo A Day Challenge: A month of you!

Guess what, it’s birthday month – for me! My gift to you is the June 2024 Photo A Day challenge.

I hope you don’t mind that I selfishly made this photo a day challenge a personal one, because I am curious person and I love learning about people… so this month is all about YOU. Each day you’ll share a little about yourself.

I am spending most of June in Japan, so I’m really keen to stick to this month and take a bit of a journey through this. Fingers crossed I can stay on track, it’s been a while!

How to play Photo A Day

Playing Photo A Day is super simple, and an easy way to get creative.

📷 Look at the list for the daily prompt.

📷 Take a photo using the prompt as inspiration. For example, if the prompt is ‘I am…’ so start the month and share a little about you. How would you finish that sentence? I am… tell us about you!

📷 Once you’ve taken your photo, it’s time to share it! You can share to Instagram, or Facebook (more details below).

📷 Enjoy the community. On both Instagram and Facebook (especially in our private Facebook group), we have a beautiful community. Each day we pick our favourite four photos to put a spotlight on. You can spend time liking and commenting on other people’s photos, and maybe your photos will get picked for the Fab Four!

How to play on Instagram

Simply check out the list for the daily prompt, and then snap a photo using that as inspiration. Share your photo, and be sure to include the hashtag #FMSPAD in your caption so the community can see your photos. We also have a daily hashtag list (see below) so that we can find your daily photos easier.

Follow 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 the challenge.

How to play on Facebook

We have a fun, private FMS Photo A Day Facebook Group that you’re welcome to join. It’s a dedicated place to share your daily photos. We also have a beautiful team who selects four photos every day (the Fab Four) from each daily prompt.

You’re also welcome to share to your own personal feed, whatever suits you best.

How to remember the Photo A Day prompts

Remembering the daily prompts can sometimes be a challenge.

We have also added the prompts to our calendar, so you can download for an easy reminder.
