Just get a new camera for Christmas and/or looking for a New Year’s resolution to improve your photography skills in 2019? Here’s a 52-week photo challenge designed to get you motivated and to stretch your creativity.
Each week, the challenge rotates through three categories: Storytelling (taking a prompt and turning it into a photo story), Compositional Eye (using rules of composition to train your eye), and Inspiration (using a simple inspiration as creatively as you can).
Here are the challenges for the 52 weeks of 2019:

Finally, if you’d like to do this challenge alongside photographers around the world, you can share your resulting photos with the community by hashtagging each week’s photos with #dogwood52, #dogwood2019, and #dogwoorkweek[number] (e.g. #dogwoodweek7 for week 7’s photo). There’s also an official Facebook group dedicated to the 2019 challenge.
