Keep It Real Campaign: Each of us has been personally impacted by photoshopped beauty. Whether it’s through actually consuming the content in these magazines ourselves, or knowing the influence it has over a loved one, we all have a wake-up call to give the industry. Use your voice and write down why you want the industry to “keep it real” in magazines, then:
Post it on your blog and on our Facebook event wall so we can share it!
Tweet it to the magazines and post the link on their Facebook pages!

A picture is worth a thousand words - pick a photo, any photo, that you’ve taken, and describe what we’re seeing as if we don’t know you. What were you trying to take a picture of? How did you end up getting the picture? Did you use any editing effects on the picture? Why did you choose this perspective? etc.

Progress report: What was your "one word" for 2012? How are you living it today?


  1. Is there any way to make a new post when there are new prompts? I use google reader to keep track of my rss feeds and it automatically updates when there is something new but it doesn't show edits.

  2. Hey Liz - Thanks for the suggestion. The reason we do it this way is to keep all the prompts in one place - which is what our original round of Broads suggested. But, just to help you out, we'll try and remember to add a new post when we do add prompts to remind you to check back here!
