MCP Photo A Day Challenge for 2014

MCP-Photo-A-Day-mcpphotoadayFor the past number of years, MCP has done some form of a photo challenge. We did Project 52, Project MCP, Project 12, Photo Challenges and Edit Challenges.  This year we are mixing things up even more – and adding a few twists.

Rather than a photo each week or month, we are doing a photo a day challenge.  We feel strongly that the more you practice your photography, the better you get.  Rather than limit participants to a specific camera, we want you to use your creativity with whatever tools you have.  Some days you may use your dSLR camera, while others you might use an iPhone/iPad or even a point and shoot.  Want to make and use a pin-hole camera?  That works too.  We hope this flexibility makes the photography project enjoyable instead of a daunting.

Themes: some are easy and while others require you get more creative. Do as many as you want.  We are excited to see what you come up with.


  • Use the topic/theme as a guide every day.
  • Take a photo that fits the theme.  You are free to interpret it however you wish.
  • If you get behind, it’s fine to play catch up.  It’s also acceptable to skip a day.  If you are an overachiever or just super excited, you might even work on upcoming topics ahead of schedule.


How to share:

  • Post the image to your Instagram, Facebook, Google+ or all three.  Hashtag it #mcpphotoaday. If possible state what theme of the image.
  • Bonus fun – You can also follow us and tag @mcpactions on Instagram, on the MCP Business Facebook Page and/or on MCP’s G+ Page.
  • If you edited the photo with MCP products such as our Photoshop actions, Lightroom presets and textures, you can also hashtag it #mcpactions.  For more exposure, you may post MCP edited images to our Facebook Group and state what products were used.
  • Spread the word.  Tell others to visit this shortened URL to join us:


That’s it – super easy.  We hope you participate.  Make sure to check out MCP on Instagram. We will feature participants’ images – so visit to get inspired and maybe to see your image.

    This is exactly what I was looking for while I take a break to retool and relaunch my business. Hoping to find my missing photo-mojo. Thanks!

    I’m there! I had already made my own challenge to do a pic a day every day #picadayeveryday. So I think this will give me some more direction to my own challenge.

  11. January 8, 2014 at 10:58 am —

    Got some catching up to do!!

  12. January 8, 2014 at 10:56 am —

    I am excited to take this challenge. I have always wanted to do one but haven’t had the nerve. I will try to catch up the ones that I missed!

      I am not sure if I was supposed to put my blog website or the site that I will be posting my pictures…probably a stupid question. I am going to post them to my Instagram page ramblingsofagrandma.

  15. January 8, 2014 at 9:53 am —

    Will bee doing it! I am going to play catch up! If I do not catchup all the way i will do those missing themes next January 🙂

  16. January 8, 2014 at 9:45 am —

    Good challenge. A bit late to the party, but I will try to catch up on 8 themes and stay with it as long as I can.

  17. January 4, 2014 at 10:00 pm —

  19. January 2, 2014 at 6:54 pm —

    I would like to say I would do a photo a day however sometimes life gets in the way, I will certainly try though. Tami
