We are so excited to announce our Armchair BEA Instagram Challenge topics for this year, or the “Oh Snap! ArmchairBEA Instagram Challenge” as it is now “officially” known.
But first, some ground rules:
- Make sure you’re following @ArmchairBEA on Instagram (clicking the link should take you right to our page!) and that you are a registered Armchair BEA participant (it’s not too late to join!)
- Tag every challenge photo with both @ArmchairBEA and the daily hashtag (#) *If you don’t tag @ArmchairBEA and use the daily hashtag (#), we won’t know you posted, or for what daily challenge you posted it for. We aren’t going to play guessing games!
- Daily challenge winners will be chosen at 10pm (Eastern) and notified by email.
- If you are a winner, please follow the steps in your notification email.
- If you are not a winner, do not despair, just try again the next day!
- Be creative and have fun!
Ok, now the fun stuff! Get your iPhones, Droids, cameras, scanners, tablets and whatever else you might use to take pictures ready! Here are your daily topics, with examples from our lovely Oh Snap! committee members!
MONDAY: To kick off the “Oh Snap! Armchair BEA Instagram Challenge”, our first topic is #MyArmchair! Snap a pic of your armchair, bed, couch, hammock, floating pool chair, beanbag or wherever you like to read the most to share with the group!
