If you spend much time at all on Instagram, you’ve seen those Photo-A-Day challenges. I thought it would be fun to create one especially for our community, so I teamed up with Dawn Crawford from BC/DC Ideas, a friend, Instagram junkie, and fellow geek and transplant to North Carolina, to create the Nonprofit Communicators Photo-A-Day Challenge, or #NPCommPix.
The inaugural challenge will be this October 1- 31, 2014. We are telling you now, so you can get ready to play with us! (If you haven’t embraced Instagram yet either personally or professionally, this is a great way to warm up to it.)
Want to Play Along? Here’s How . . .
I’ve posted a longer explanation and FAQs on our website, but here’s the gist of it.
Dawn and I will be posting the photo prompt on Instagram and Twitter each day to keep you inspired (and so you can remember – we’re all crazy busy and it’s easy to forget).
We’ll start snapping on October 1, and play through October 31.
1. Share the challenge list image (the graphic above) on your Instagram feed or wherever you’ll be playing along. I’ve posted it to my own feeds on Instagram and Twitter this morning, so you can grab it there too. Get your own nonprofit friends and colleagues playing with you too! Instagram is our home base, but feel free to share on your Twitter, Pinterest, and/or Facebook feeds, or wherever you want. The more the merrier!
2. Follow Dawn and me on Instagram and Twitter. We’ll be posting each day’s prompt to our feeds to remind you to take and share your photo.
3. Post your response to each day’s prompt on your own Instagram, and anywhere else you like. See the graphic for the list of prompts for each day in October 2014.
4. Be sure to tag every challenge image #NPCommPix – We’ll be reposting our favorites throughout the month!
I hope you’ll join us in the fun!
