This challenge is aimed at your challenge group. This is a one-off Christmas challenge which will be judged by the panel with the winning team choosing their selections for a shout.
This challenge is being run in combination with the Advent Calendar photography event being hosted by The Pants Drunk Pie Factory
T’is the PANTSDRUNK SEASON and we are inviting you to join in with our PPF fun advent calendar challenge. So whether you’ve been naughty or nice, check out our list of 12 themes and get creative. You can participate in as many – or as few – of the themes as you like – in no particular order. We will count down to Christmas by featuring one of our favourite pictures here, every day from 1st-24th December.
Our laidback “rules” are:
- Work should be your own and created and posted between the start and close date.
- Start and close date is from NOW until 12 NOON on Thursday 23 December CEST (Central European Standard Time)
- Just remember that the EARLIER you post, the better chance of being chosen.
- Individuals can enter all 12 of the themes – or just 1.
- There is no limit on the number of submissions per individual (it is Christmas after all)
- Please give your picture a title.
- Use the hashtag #ppfxmas21 and say in the caption which of the 12 themes it relates to.

All participants see an increase in their engagement from real and interested instagrammers, and all new challengers receive additional followers just for getting involved.
We set-up groups to make the challenge more personal and for better engagement, and please let me know if you want to be added to a group.
