This is it! The new Paper and Landscapes’ Weekly Photo Challenge for 2018! Let’s make this a fun and creative year!
Two years ago, we started our Weekly Photo Challenge for 2016, and it was amazing! We’ve participated in photo challenges before but they were either too overwhelming, or just too hard to keep up with. So we decided to make our own, and it was a really fun experience.
What is the Weekly Photo Challenge?
Paper and Landscapes’ Weekly Photo Challenge is about taking pictures all year long with a sense of purpose. We will give you a set of themes, one theme for each week of the month. The theme will guide you and inspire your creative process.
This time, each month will have a different category. And under that category there will be the words or phrases that you can use as a guide to take your picture for each week.
Anyone can do it!
You don’t have to be a professional photographer or have an expensive camera to be able to do this challenge. You can use any camera that you have, or even your own phone. And your pictures don’t have to be perfect, as long as you take a moment of your day or week to put your mind into something creative and fun, because that’s actually the goal of this exercise.
Make it fun and relax!
Don’t worry if you fail to take a week’s picture, just take it the next one! Just try to set a bit of time for it, as this is something to help you get out of your usual routines, and include some art into your every day life. But don’t see it as a burden, just have fun with it!
Some week’s themes will be more abstract, for example “Happiness”. In that one, everyone’s picture might be different, as what you define as a happy moment or situation can differ from everyone else’s. Make this project about you and your life, so that you can look back on it at the end of the year and smile to see your 2018 in pictures!
Share your pictures with us
You can do this challenge for yourself, but you can also share your pictures on Instagram and see other’s pictures as well!
If you do that, you can tag your pictures with:
That way, we’ll be able to see all of your challenge pictures together and at the end of the year we’ll show some of them on the blog in an end-of-challenge post!
