#Instagramarye 2022

#Instagramarye, our Gramarye related Instagram challenge, is returning as a month long event. We have curated a list of 8 prompts for you to draw inspiration from. We are not including descriptions for the themes so you can interpret these as broad as possible. Do you want to design a coord around a theme? Or are you getting “halloween decor” vibes from the word instead? It’s up to you!

In addition to these prompts, we will be giving away some prizes! Every #Instagramarye prompt post submitted will earn you an entry for a chance to win a Halloween and fall themed prize pack donated by some spooky Bay Area Kei team members. This challenge will run from October 1st and end on October 31st at 11:59pm PST. A winner will be chosen at random and contacted via email after the event ends.
