2015 #GGKCRAFTYPAD Edition for Edinburgh Yarn Festival

What is #GGKCRAFTYPAD? It's a monthly photo a day challenge. The hashtag stands for Geeky Girls Knit Crafty Photo A Day challenge. We give you a prompt, you take a photo and share it. Most of our prompts tend to be related to craftiness but we've done others as well. For example, the February prompts list was themed alphabet soup using a different letter of the alphabet for each day. March's prompts list is colour themed.

So, how can you participate???? Well, there are actually several ways:
INSTAGRAM - Honestly, Instagram will be the primary arena for participating in this challenge. Simply take your photo, add a caption to it, tag it with the hashtags #GGKCraftyPAD and #EYF2015 and share it. By adding the hashtags #GGKCraftyPAD + #EYF2015, others who are participating will be able to see the pictures that have been shared for the daily prompts. C.C. is on Instagram as cc_almon & Damaris is on Instagram as d_isabitgroovy so make sure to follow them if you haven't already.

TWITTER - You can also share on Twitter by taking a photo and uploading it to Twitter along with the hashtag #GGKCraftyPAD . Follow us on Twitter as geekygirlsknit.

FACEBOOK - Feel free to share with your friends on your own Facebook profile page or on the Geeky Girls Knit Facebook page.

OTHER PLACES - Feel free to share your photos other places like your own blog, Ravelry, Tumblr, Flickr, etc. Be creative and then tell us about it! :-)

PRIZES - So what about these prizes? We will utilize a random number generator to select winners who have posted on Instagram a picture that matches the theme for the day (Saturday the 14th is shenanigans and Sunday the 15th is enabling) and who have tagged the picture with both the tags #GGKCRAFTYPAD and #EYF2015. If your photo is selected, C.C. will comment on your photo asking you to contact her via Ravelry so she can get your prize to you.

We'll be in the Podcast Lounge as well as in the JavaPurl Designs / KnitRunDig booth, so come by and say hi! Can't wait to see your photos!

And we'd love for you to participate in the rest of the month of March if you want to. You can find the March prompts list here: http://geekygirlsknit.blogspot.com/2015/02/march2015-ggkcraftypad.html

Happy Knitting!
