An entire month of #bellingFAM on Instagram (Giveaway)

July Photo Challenge

I can’t even believe that we just completed an entire month of Instagram prompts. Now, there are over 1000 pictures on #bellingFAM on Instagram and I can’t even tell you how much creativity of the photos blew my mind each day. It was a lot of work to manage (more than I expected!), but the payoff of seeing how each participant had captured the daily prompt was SO worth it.

In the next couple of weeks, I’ll post with my favorite pictures for each prompt and the ones that I posted myself, so that you can see it all in person.

But for now, onto the giveaway details.

At first, I’d thought that anyone who participated for all 31 days of the challenge would get an entry, but I quickly realized it wasn’t a reasonable request. 31 days of picture is a LOT. Even for the Instagram-loving over-achievers.

So, here’s what we’re going to do instead:

  • One winner will get a $20 gift card to Printstagram to make their favorite Instagram pictures into real life pictures. You remember those, right?
  • If you were one of my favorite photos of the day, you get an extra entry for each day you were a favorite. I’ve already included those in the entries. You don’t need to do anything.
  • For each day that you entered a photo, you get an entry. Please look through your Instagram feed, add them up and email me how many photos you took to Be sure to include your Instagram name!
  • If you were a private user, and I couldn’t see your photos on the #bellingFAM feed, please take a quick screenshot (just one is fine!) and include it with your email for a quick verification.
  • If you completed all 31 days of the photo challenge, you get an extra five entries.
  • Please email all entries by Friday, August 8, 2014 at noon PST. A winner will be announced as soon as I can wade through all of the entries and enter them in the giveaway. Winner will be announced here and on Instagram.

July photo challenge on Instagram (Giveaway)

July Photo Challenge

In an attempt to take more pictures, because I’ve been a slacker lately, I made a little Instagram photo challenge for July.

I’ve done a few of these before and not only did they inspire me to take more creative, thoughtful pictures, but it helped me see my everyday life in a new way. Plus, having all of the pictures I took during those months was so valuable.

This is super easy… and fun. If you’re on Instagram,┬árepost the picture of the prompts (there’s a picture of them on my Instagram account) and then get started tomorrow, posting a picture for the first prompt and including #bellingFAM and tagging me, if you’d like. I usually also use the prompt of the day on my pictures, or hashtag it, for example, for the 1st, I’d do #morning.

I have no idea if some of you will follow along, but (NEW RULES!) for each day you participate, you’ll get an entry into the giveaway drawing at the end of the month. To be entered, you must follow bellingFAM on Instagram and you must tag #bellingFAM in your pictures. One winner will win $20 to Printstagram, where they can print their pretty Instagram photos. I love their 4×4 square photos, but they also have cute magnets, photo books, and even posters.

If you’re a private Instagram user and would prefer to stay that way, there’s an option for you to show me your photos at the end of the month. We can chat about that later.

Happy clicking!
