My annual February daily photo challenge is back for 2022. Something of a mainstay here on Splodz Blogz (have you taken part in the last six?!), today I’m sharing the themes I hope will help inspire a photo every day in February.
Sharing my world in photos was how Splodz Blogz started (back in 2010, doesn’t time fly?!). I created this little corner of the internet with that exact purpose in mind, and shared images, good and bad, every day for at least two years.
These days, though, “daily” photos, whether they be on blogs, Instagram, twitter or anywhere else, seem to have turned into something much more delayed and curated.
By sharing my annual photo-a-day challenge, I want to encourage you to look at the world around you a little differently to how you might normally, by hunting out things that might fit with each given theme, and documenting it there and then.
Splodz Blogz Daily Photo Challenge
Each day during February, take a photo that is somehow linked to the given prompt, and share it on your favourite social media using #SplodzDPC.
That’s 28 photos documenting the whole month, giving you both a creative project for the month, and something to look back on at the end to remind you of some of the moments you might otherwise forget.
You can interpret the given theme each day any way you choose. I’m sure you can find a way to make it fit the life you happen to be living on the day. It’ll be interesting to see how we each interpret the themes differently (or indeed when we see them the same).
Of course, the idea is your photograph should be taken on the day listed, but this isn’t a set rule (as the whole thing is just for fun anyway), so please share old photos if you like. Don’t worry if you can’t take part every day, you can dip in and out as you feel led.
The main point of the challenge is to use the daily prompts to observe the world around you a little differently. If the themes provide you with an excuse to get outside for a bit each day (you know, get your One Hour Outside), then that’s wonderful. If you’re already outdoors, then you’re a step ahead. But if you’re staying inside for whatever reason, whether that’s due to work or illness or something else, then I’m sure you can make these themes work for you too.
Themes for February 2022
To make it nice and easy for you to copy the themes into your journal or diary, here they are as a list:
- This is Me
- Gives Me Energy
- Flowing Water
- This Way
- Feet Up

- Out of Place
I’ll be posting a daily theme reminder over on twitter, too.
Share Your Daily Photos
Each day, take a look at the theme and take a photograph with that in mind. Share it on your favourite social media (or on your blog, vlog or anywhere else you fancy) using #SplodzDPC.
Using the hashtag means I and others taking part can find your photographs and see what you’ve been taking – please share the love by commenting on or liking photos that others taking part are sharing. These links should help:
It would be great to have a whole community of daily photo challenge participants for the Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge once again this year. Follow me on twitter, instagram and/or facebook and then either retweet, repost or share the theme image with your friends to let them know about it.
See you every day in February…
