2016 – 52 WEEK CHALLENGE

52-week

NOTE: We will be starting a new 52 week challenge on January 1, 2017.  If you haven’t participated before, this will be your chance to get in at the very beginning of the 2017 challenge.  Watch this page for details!

Our club members are doing a 52 week photo challenge for 2016.  There will be a theme word emailed to members at midnight every Friday night, so you’ll have Saturday through the next Friday to take a photo that represents the theme and then post it to our GROUP page on Flickr.  Please post only one image per word and title your image with the theme word it represents.

It’s not a competition. It is just something fun to do every week and it also tests your creative thinking and imagination. Your participation is completely optional, and if you miss a week or two, no one’s going to scold you, but we think you’ll enjoy challenging yourself each week.  You can use any camera you wish – even your cell phone.  Just try to post to the Flickr Group in the week that the word is in effect.

If you don’t have a Flickr account, but you’d like to learn more about setting one up, please download this tutorial.
