December Photo Scavenger Hunt!

I had so much fun looking at the pictures from last month's scavenger hunt! I thought it would be fun to do it again for Christmas :-) So today I will be giving out the new categories!

But before I do that, I'll go over the rules again. I will give 7 categories (yeah, I added 2 more this time!) and you have to take just one photo for each category. Then on the deadline, you will post all the pictures with the categories on your blog. I will post links to all of the blogs who participate on my own blog, and then we will do 2 days of voting for the best overall winner again. Confused yet?? Don't worry, it will make just need to worry about taking those pictures and everything else will fall into place :-)

Your December Categories are...

1. Peace
2. Deck the Halls
3. Tradition
4. Reason for the Season
5. Joy
6. Together
7. Photographer's Choice

I hope you don't mind that I created 7 categories instead of 5 this time. I just really wanted to use "together" again. I know it may seem redundant since I used it last month, but I just thought that since Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up, you may have a LOT of good "together" photo ops :-)

And as I was thinking of categories, I though, "What if someone has a phenomenal photo that just won't fit into any of the other categories?!" It was really starting to stress me out, so I decided to add a photographer's choice category. Because we are all photographers for the sake of this challenge! ;-) You can post any picture you want for this category! Whether it's a really thought-provoking photo, or a beautiful one, or even a hilarious one, it's your choice :-)

Just in case you are wondering, the photos do not have to be taken between now and the deadline. If you have a picture that fits perfectly into one of the categories that you took 5 years ago, that still works :-) Just make sure that you either TOOK the picture, or you're IN the picture!

Wow, I almost forgot to tell you the deadline! It will be before midnight on Monday, December 14. To submit your entry, just leave the link to your picture post in my comments or email. Then on Tuesday the 16th, I will create a post linking to all of your entries, and I'll put a poll on my sidebar where you and all of your friends can vote :-) Just like last time.

Oh, and there will be a Christmas-themed prize! I was going to push the deadline back until the week of Christmas, but then I realized that the winner might want to have a little bit more time to enjoy his or her prize! I don't know exactly what the prize will be yet, but I will be sure to keep you posted as soon as I have it ready. So for now it is just a surprise prize :-) If you would rather push the date back a week (to Dec. 21) let me know! It may be easier to take Christmas photos a little closer to Christmas. If a lot of you want to do that, then we'll push it back a week :-)

I think that's about it. If you have any questions, comment or email me! The categories and a link to this post will be at the top of my sidebar until it's time to vote, just in case you forget them!

Now get shooting!! ;-)


  1. SOunds fun Jessica! I'm going to try to participate again - I had fun with the last one! Hopefully things don't get too busy, but I bet I can still get some pretty good pictures.

  2. Hey Jessica- I saw your last photo scavenger hunt a little too late, but I am looking forward to participating this time! What a great idea!

  3. I like this. I am not a great photographer, but I might try to participate anyway :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! I read and appreciate each and every one. Blessings to you!
