The New #PEPics

Over the past couple of years, I have organized an annual month-long photo challenge known as #PEPics.

The idea behind #PEPics was to have a month long schedule in which every day had a different theme. Physical educators were then invited to share pictures on various social media platforms every day throughout that month while trying to have fun with each daily theme.

Although I’ve always loved the idea of the #PEPics challenge, it never seemed to meet the ultimate goal I had for it: to get a glimpse into the gyms, lesson, and lives of the different members of the #physed community.

That being said, it’s time to switch things up! It’s time for a new #PEPics format!

From here on out, #PEPics will be a weekly photo challenge. Each week, I will provide you with an overall theme and invite you to share pictures and/or videos that fit within that theme via Twitter, Instagram, Vine, etc. I will go through all of the pictures/videos that are shared throughout the week and create a weekend blog post that will collect some of the best posts that are shared.

We’ll try this out for a month and go from there. Are you game? Great!

The first theme in the new #PEPics challenge format is: Visuals.

I’m really looking forward to seeing all of the amazing pictures/videos you can create using that theme. Don’t forget to include the #PEPics hashtag in your posts and, if possible, cross-share to Twitter (which will make it easier for everyone to see your post).

Have fun, get creative, and happy teaching!
