#PLPhotoADay Challenge

by *LyndiLou* on September 30, 2014

If you know us at all, then you know that October is our favorite month of the year because Halloween is our favorite holiday! PartyLand Utah is your Halloween Superstore!!!

#PLPhotoADay Challenge {PartyLand Utah Blog}

In order to celebrate this SPOOK-tacular month properly, we’ve decided to celebrate something different each day, throw in a contest all while letting YOU show off some of YOUR favorite parts of October and Halloween. How can we do all of this at once? With the first official:

PartyLand Photo-A-Day Challenge!

We’ve assigned a different theme for every day in October. Each day, post a picture on Instagram that goes along with the daily theme, add the hash tag #PLPhotoADay and you could win a PartyLand gift certificate. Easy, right?

You’ll need to be sure that you’re following @PartyLandUT on Instagram to see the daily theme and winners. You have to have an Instagram account that is accessible from your mobile device. If your account is private, then sadly we won’t be able to see your post unless you change your privacy settings during the contest or let us follow you. Leave us a comment on any of our Instagram posts saying you’d like us to follow you and we will!

We’ll be choosing a winner EACH day from all the entries, so you have a chance to win EVERY day! Ok, well you personally can’t win EVERY day, we’ll let you win twice during the contest. We want to share the prize love.

#PLPhotoADay Challenge {PartyLand Utah Blog}

So, what should you post? Anything you think has to do with the theme! If Autumn to you means colorful leaves, snap a picture and use the contest hash tag. If Autumn means homemade root beer and s’mores, prove it! If Autumn means getting a fresh new hair cut, wearing boots and sweaters, eating pie, or playing the guitar on the porch… show us! As long as your photo is family friendly and you explain why you posted what you did for the theme and used the #PLPhotoADay hash tag, then you’re set.

You’ll notice that there are 5 PartyLand specific themes. On these days, head over to your local PartyLand store to grab a picture. You can find something in the store each day for your photo if you really want to, but on the PartyLand days we’re looking for pictures from in the store. Our employees will be happy to help you if needed (ESPECIALLY on Oct. 16th, hint hint) but feel free to get creative. To show how much we appreciate you dropping by, the prizes for those days will be worth DOUBLE the other days!

Ready to see the themes for our Photo-A-Day Challenge? Well, here they are…

#PLPhotoADay Challenge {PartyLand Utah Blog}Remember you can post as many pictures a day as you like, but only one will be chosen to win and each Instagram account can only win twice during the contest. Oh, and no posting ahead of time. We’ll be checking for winners each day, so it won’t do you much good to post them early or we’ll just miss them later.

Alright, get ready too show off all your BOO-tiful Halloween October and Autumn Instagram pictures starting tomorrow. We can’t wait to see what you love about this time of year!
