Each month, Family Trails shares a theme to guide and inspire your Instagram storytelling.

Because we have been happily overwhelmed with the quality of submissions, we pick four participants each month to receive FamilyTrails swag. Each swag recipient will be announced on Thursdays during the theme period. We will then feature a round up on our blog at the end of the month.

The most IMPORTANT part: in order to be considered to win, you must follow the new instructions written below.

Instructions:

1.) Post your theme photo from a public account between the first of the month and 11:59pm EST on the 22nd of the month. There is no limit to the number of entries each account can share and tag.

2.) Use the hashtag of the month and #FamilyTrails in your original caption.

3.) In your caption, include a few sentences explaining how your photo relates to the theme.

You must follow the above rules to qualify for the prize. Swag recipients will be chosen based on the post's adherence to the aforementioned rules, image quality, caption quality, and overall creativity.
