30 Day Photo Challenge


Dear Bloggers, 
Please post photos on your Tumblr account or any photo-sharing website account e.g. Photobucket.
It will make life so much easier for you when the competition starts.

Don't have a Tumblr account? Sign up for one here. It only takes 2 seconds!
Or you could create a new blog and that would work just as fine as well.
At least with Blogger you can do scheduled posts.
Just be sure to tell me your new links by 14th January 2011.

Good luck and thanks for participating!



1. This is an international competition and there are no restrictions based on your location.

2. You must post the photos on your Tumblr or a photo-sharing website account because it's the easiest way for me check on what you've done. Another option is for you to create a new blog and this option will allow you to schedule your posts in advance.

3.You can post photos that you have taken yourself with any type of camera and/or you can post ones that you've found on the Internet, in a magazine etc. but please credit the source, Boys and Girls, otherwise you will be disqualified.

4. Enter the competition by leaving your name and link underneath this post by 14 January 2011.

5. You must use the above digital poster to spread the word about the competition.

6. Three winners will be chosen based on three categories: HumourCreativityInspiration

7. Winners will be chosen on 1st March 2011inshaAllah.

8. Prizes will be chosen after I pick the winners. Why? So I can personally pick the prizes just for you. Think of it as a mystery gift!

If I see that you're into fashion, I'll get you something related to fashion.
If you're passionate about Islam, then something Islamic-related.
If you're into saving the environment and eating healthy etc. then something 'green' and environment-friendly.


Day 1 - A picture of yourself with fifteen facts (you don't have to reveal your face)

Day 2 - A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest

Day 3 - A picture of the cast from your favorite show

Day 4 - A picture of something you'd like to do again

Day 5 - A picture of something you love

Day 6 - A picture that makes you laugh

Day 7 - A picture of the person you do the silliest things with

Day 8 - A picture of your hero / knight / heroine

Day 15 - A picture of something you want to do before you die

Day 16 - A picture of someone who inspires you

Day 17 - A picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently

Day 18 - A picture of your biggest insecurity

Day 19 - A picture and a letter (choose any photo and write short entry to explain why you've chosen it)

Day 20 - A picture of somewhere you'd love to travel

Day 21 - A picture of something you wish you could forget

Day 22 - A picture of something you wish you were better at

Day 23 - A picture of your favorite book

Day 24 - A picture of something you wish you could change

Day 25 - A picture of your favourite day

Day 26 - A picture of something that means a lot to you

Day 27 - A picture of yourself and a family member

Day 28- A picture of something you're afraid of

Day 29 - A picture that can always make you smile

Day 30 - A picture of someone you miss


1. Plan ahead and brainstorm ideas.

2. Keep it simple.

3. Scheduled posting is always handy if you know you're going to be busy on certain days.

4.  Be yourself. This is your chance to express your thoughts and creativity so be original.

5. If you want to join in the fun but don't want to take part in the competition that's fine too!

The main objective of this challenge is for us to do something together and let our creative juices flow. Plus, we can get to know each other a little better. Who knows? Brand new wonderful friendships could start from this. If you have any questions leave a comment or flick me a message here and I'll get back to you.

Oh and of course, yours truly will be participating as well. I'd be silly to miss out on all the fun!

Sha this is totally awesome!!!!!
just when I've lost my camera :P

haha inshaAllah i'd love to take part so i will see what i can do. :)

Shahirah Elaiza said...

Received a question from a reader:

Q."All entries must be submitted by leaving your name and link underneath this post by 14 January 2011.- by this, need I submit all 30 pictures 1 shot? or do u judge every photo from the starting day (15th Jan)?

5.You must use the above digital poster to spread the word about the competition.- where should I spread it? in my blog? and is it for every picture I post?"

A. Thanks for your question!

By entry I meant let me know you're taking part in it so I know who's in. e.g. Jane Doe - http://janedoe.blogspot.com

I'll check on the photos daily but overall they will be judged at the end of the competition date (15 February 2011). It would be better for you to post a photo everyday. You can use automatic scheduling so you can plan ahead.

You only have to post the digital poster once on your blog/Tumblr/etc.

All the best!

xo Sha

Shahirah Elaiza said...

L&S: You can use any type of camera. Don't worry =) There are 3 categories so 3 chances!

Question from a reader:

Amnah said...

Sha! I just saw the update about creating a tumblr account so that it's easier for you to see what's posted. On my blog your comp has it's own tag "30 days of photos". It'll filter out the rest of my stuff. If that still doesn't work for you, let me know.

I'm farra.. said...

closed already :(

Hi! I'm sorry it's too late to join the competition but you are more than welcome to do the 30 day challenge individually.

Twiggy said...
