Advent Photo Challenge

Starting on Wednesday 1 December 2021, take a photo each day until Christmas, using the daily prompts. Share on social media with #StMAdvent2021

How to get involved

Playing along is really simple! Just look at the list each day and take a photo using the prompt as inspiration. So, for example, Day 1 is Light, so all you have to do is take a photo of something that represents light to you.
You can then share your photo on either Facebook or Instagram or both! To share on Instagram, just upload with the hashtag #StMAdvent2021 and you’re done (more details below if you need them though), and to share on Facebook, upload to your personal page or head to the special Facebook group and share there.

How to Share on Instagram

Simply upload the photo to Instagram, add a caption (you could mention the day and the prompt in the caption), add the hashtag #StMAdvent2021 and then publish. You can also tag the St Michael’s Instagram page.
Check out the #StMAdvent2021 hashtag to see all the other photos. Like them and comment on them, encourage each other and take inspiration.
