Sometimes the only push you need to get creative is a good hashtag. Having a whole team rooting for you and sharing their creative work is incredibly inspiring. So whether you want to practice your hand-lettering or photography, there’s no better time than now to get involved in these Instagram challenges.

1. #DSShapes: If you want to work on your photography this year, try a fun photo challenge that focuses on geometric shapes in everyday life. From architecture to sweet treats, you’ll have fun finding the geometry in everything. (via Design Sponge)

2. #52handlettered: Calling all hand-lettering lovers. Grab a brush and some paint and join this challenge. This one is once a week , so you won’t have to over-commit to a daily challenge, and it comes with a fun prompt to get you started. (via Pen and Peplum)

3. #TEG30DayChallenge: A new challenge is put out every month, and January is all about hydration. Jump on the bandwagon and start snapping photos of your water bottles. (via The Everygirl)

4. @its_my_week: With a new challenge every week, you can go crazy tagging all your favorite seasonal photos. Four winners are announced at the end of the week. (via It’s My Week)

5. #creativeunblock: The first Saturday of the month, a new art challenge will be posted from the amazing book Creative Unblock. It’s nice to have a whole month to work on a project instead of rushing through a daily challenge. (via The Jealous Curator)

6. #iamcreative: #31DaysofDIY was our very own Brit + Co challenge to make or learn something new every single day for the month of January, but since this month is coming to a close, take the #iamcreative journey with us any ol’ day. Above is a shot from Brit HQ’s recent Creativity Day — look at how fun making is! (via @britandco)
