We challenge you and your family to re-create a classic fairy tale using only 10 original photos. Get creative with costumes, locations and props, and share your story on social media for a chance to win a gift card to a local Bloomington business. New challenges (and prizes) will be announced every month! ANYONE can participate, no matter your age or household size. Find details on our current challenge below.

September’s Family Photo Challenge is generously sponsored by Hopscotch Coffee. Thank you!

September Challenge: Beauty and the Beast

Post your story by September 30 for a chance to win a $50 Hopscotch Gift Card!

We encourage you to read the story with your family before starting on the challenge (see below). Ask your kids to listen for the most important characters, events, and plot points. After reading, work together to plan out your photos. Get creative with your interpretation and find a fun way to tell us the story in just 10 photos! Anyone can participate – no matter your age or household size!

Once complete, post your photo story on Instagram or Facebook to enter to win. To qualify, you MUST tag Cardinal Stage (@cardinalstage) and use the hashtag #cardinalchallenge. Please note, your post must be public in order for us to view it. At the beginning of the following month, Cardinal will announce the winner and post the winning story!
