On June 1st, 2017, YARNutopia will launch the summer season by beginning a 30 Day Photo Challenge and invite all crochet, knit, and yarn lovers to join in on this fun and exciting one month photography adventure.
On each day in June, you will find a daily topic that you, the audience, can use for inspiration. Be creative, think outside the box, there is no right or wrong answer!
Simply, take a photo pertaining to the daily topic and post it on Facebook in the comments section after I post my Photo of the Day, and then share your photo on Instagram with the hashtag #YARNutopia30DayChallenge.
You can participate on your own personal photo journey and share privately with your own friends and family or use our Facebook page or go to Instagram to post your photos and see what others are sharing as well!
This blog provides 30 inspirational guidelines as shown in our info-graphic. I will be posting my very own Photo of the Day to also help inspire you! This activity is a fun way to share our love of that yarn life in a new creative outlet!
This is NOT a competition so there’s NO PRESSURE to finish or participate. There’s NO PRIZE (other than the memories you’re going to make in this month of creativity!) There is NO OBLIGATION. Join in for one day or the entire month! This is purely for enjoyment and entertainment! There are NO RULES other than the *obvious* and it goes without saying, but I will say it anyway, inappropriate content will NOT be acknowledged and will be deleted. I am sure we won’t need to worry about that because this community is THE BEST.
This is just a way for our community to have a month of craft/yarn filled fun and share this fun in another creative way, through PHOTOS! One photo, each day, for 30 days of JUNE!
***Share this blog, join along, share your photos, hashtag #YARNutopia30DayChallenge and lets challenge ourselves to get even more creative than we already are!***
