This months photo challenge…

Hi friends,

Let’s talk about my photo challenges. I started my photo challenge back in May 2010. I have some amazing bloggers that participate all the time (some make it each and every week), but participation has gone down and I wonder if doing a challenge once a month would be better. I don’t want to completely end the whole thing, but maybe this would be more fun for everyone?

Let’s give it a try. The photo challenge for this month, “Fall”. It will end on November 24th. Maybe I can set up a prize for the winner? I’ll let you all know. 🙂

All my photo challenges should be based around your children (pets are always welcome). 

The challenge:  “Fall”

  • First time joining the Paper Mama photo challenge? Start here for rules and upcoming challenges.
  • My photo challenges do require you to have either your children or one of your furry children (pets) in the photo (unless it’s a self portrait week). It could be just one finger… or a toe… but, they must be there.

2010 winners . 2011 winners . 2012 winners .

Next month’s theme…. Family!

    Hello! I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina and it is the first time I participate in the challenge! It feels so good to have upload it ok!! (I guess). Thanks!

    Did you put up your favorites for the "hands" challenge? Thanks!

      I didn't. I'm sorry. I don't think I will be able to. With my monthly challenges, it will be easier for me to keep up with the winner's posts. 🙂

    You know what sucks? Entering your challenges when you don't even choose a winner. Maybe not a big deal to you, but it's a time when I've spent time finding and editing the picture, creating a post about it on my blog so you can get the link up, then going through the whole thing to put in on your site. You've done that twice. And even when people ask you about it you still don't pick a winner. So, no thanks.

      Kelley,
      I've been running this photo challenge for 2 and a half years. In that time, I've missed a total of 3 – 4 winners posts. Sometimes it comes down to: do I want to catch up on this blog post, or spend time with my family this weekend? This would also be the reason I'm changing the weekly challenges…. to monthly. I just do not have time.

      I'm sad that you chose to be so angry about this. This makes me feel like I should just stop the photo challenges altogether. My choosing a winner is not a top priority in the grand scheme of things. I would hope that your week is not ruined by my missing one (or, two) winners posts. I enjoy these challenges because they are fun and I love seeing the photos my fellow bloggers shot! That's it. It's a post I CHOOSE to write. CHOOSE being the key word. I do not apologize.

      There will now be monthly opportunities to win, this means I can probably add a prize to give to the winners. You're welcome to join.

      Thank you,
      Chelsey

    I don't enter because I don't have kids or a pet. 🙁

    • The Paper Mama on said:

      I could definitely change the rules to allow all photos (no kid or pet required). 🙂 I'll work on that for the next challenge. 🙂

      • Jess on said:

        Yay! Thanks!! I’m hoping to have some awesome photos when I hit Hawaii.

  • Kelly on said:

    I've always loved your photo challenges! I'll be entering this one too! I was wondering if you had posted the top five for the "smile" challenge and I missed it. I never saw a post for it and that was the last one I entered. Thanks!

    PS: I'm in love with this unicorn costume! If I had a girl I probably would have gone for it!

  • Carrie on said:

    This is a great idea! I tell myself, 'Hmmm… let me think about what pic to enter,' and then I end up forgetting completely. I love your photo challenges. Thanks for keeping it going!

  • Ruthie on said:

    Ohh! I think a prize for the winner would be fun! 🙂 And your girl is precious!

    First time linking up with a photo challenge… I had a little trouble adding your button, but I think Blogger was just being a bit weird. I really enjoy all of the hair tutorials on your blog, although I have yet to try any. Happy Sunday!
