Poetic Winter Challenge

Poetic Winter Photography Challenge

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” Aaron Siskind

I'm excited to announce the launch of our long awaited winter photography challenge. I'm teaming up with Rebecca of Bumbles & Light, Faith of Sweet Violet and Kristi of Live and Love Out Loud to bring you the Poetic Winter Photography Challenge - an inspiring 4-week photo challenge aimed at capturing the poetic beauty of winter through photography.


The Poetic Winter Photo Challenge will run throughout the month of February and is open to everyone regardless of geographic location, skill level, time commitment or camera equipment.

Here’s a look at our inspiring weekly prompts:

February 3rd - Solitude
February 10th - Warmth
February 17th - Passion
February 24th - Calm

Just a few more details…

Not experiencing winter in your part of the world? No problem. All are invited regardless of geographic location.

Each Friday, stop by and share your favorite images inspired by the weekly prompt by linking directly to your Poetic Winter blog post or Flickr photo, not your blog’s home page or Flickr Photostream. Feel free to share your photos in our Poetic Winter Flickr Group as well.

The linky will remain open from 9am Friday – 9am Thursday CST. Don't forget to visit and comment on the previous entry in the linky list.

Each week, we'll bring you freebies, photography tips and inspirational quotes or poems to get your creative photography juices flowing.

In lieu of selecting only a handful of favorite entries each week, we'll be pinning our favorite photos to our Poetic Winter Pinterest Board. This will allow us to showcase even more talented photographers!

Last, but not least, don't forget to grab our lovely button!

We're so excited about sharing the beauty of winter with you in our Poetic Winter Photo Challenge. We can't wait to be inspired by your beautiful images as well.
