It’s November, the month that automatically conjures up warm fuzzy thoughts of thankfulness and pie. So we want to know: what ARE you grateful for? How does gratitude look in your life today?

Today is the first day of THE GRATITUDE PROJECT, a three-week challenge to share photographs that define gratitude for you. We know this will look different for everyone, and whether you post a photo-a-day of thankfulness or just one shining moment, we can’t wait to see the diversity of our experiences coming together.

Share with us on Instagram for the next few weeks using #definegratitude (and make sure you have a profile we can see). Not only will you be filling the world with more warm fuzzies, you will be filling the world with your images, and that’s something that we’re grateful for.

You think we’re kidding, but we LOVE seeing your work and your stories. At the end of the project, we’ll choose six photographers from all who entered to recognize as featured artists. Each selected artist will be featured on our blog and in our newsletter.

Submit your image(s) by November 23rd (that’s Thanksgiving!) for a chance to be selected as one of our featured artists. We’ll introduce our chosen photographers November 29th!

Enter as often as you’d like. Tell any of your friends. No one ever complained about seeing too many photos of grateful hearts. Sending us pies won’t increase your chances of being selected, but it will give us something to add to our own grateful list…

Thanks for being you and sharing with us.

  1. I am so grateful for this #definegratitude project! I am very grateful for the DEFINE school, you all have inspired in so many ways… so I had decided to go on a personal “attitude of gratitude” journey this month but now I will share it with you and all those that are being grateful too!
