This challenge is hosted by Elle Luna at www.the100dayproject.org and starts sometime in April (the date varies from year to year).
It was inspired by a Yale School of Art Workshop created by Michael Bierut for his graduate graphic design students.
Decide on your project
The aim of the project is that you decide on something that you would like to work on consistently for 100 days.
Choose a unique hashtag for your project
Once you’ve decided on your project, create yourself a unique hashtag #100daysofxxxxxxx Then each day post your work Instagram with your unique tag and #the100dayproject.
Build a habit by creating something every day
Lots of artists take part in this project. The beauty of it is that you can get stuck in to any creative project you like, such as writing poetry, composing music, creating content for your blog. The sky is the limit!
100 days is a long time, but what this project really teaches you, is that sometimes you just have to show up. You are unlikely to produce something you love every day, but you will start to build a creative habit and create an impressive body of work.
Do your best to keep up. If you do fall behind, you won’t be alone and your fellow creatives will help encourage you on Social Media.

- Create a unique hashtag #100daysofxxxxxxx

Tips to make things a little more manageable
- If you only have a small amount of time, create something simple so you can commit to it. Alternatively, you could work on a more detailed piece and post your progress every day.
- Keep your materials at hand to remind you to create.
- If you fall behind, don’t worry just carry on. You can always catch up, or carry on a little after the official project is over.
