Yeah, that's right! We're giving away not one, not two, but THREE prizes from our FYA Store:

First Prize: FYA Tote

Show the world you love nothing more than books, rainbows, martinis, and unicorns with this FYA tote bag. Excellent for carrying books and champ cans.

Second Prize: FYA Pins 

You get one Drunk Unicorn pin, and then you'll get to choose three more of your preferred designs.

Third Prize: FYA Stickers

Adorn your notebooks, your laptops, and your loved ones with an FYA Drunk Unicorn sticker, plus five more stickers of your choice!

TO ENTER: Follow us, at @forever_young_adult. Between Nov. 1-30, participate in FYA Photo-A-Day photo prompts from a PUBLIC instagram account. Tag your photo #fyaphotoaday. Each daily photo (one per day, don't be cute and take 5 photos of the same prompt per day) equals one entry. FYA contributors are not eligible to win, as much as we'd like to see Brian rock that tote at book signings.

But Jennie, do I have to do every single prompt?

Nope! The more prompts you participate in, the more chances you'll have to win, but you're not required to do the entire month.

How will the winners be chosen?

We'll be keeping track of participants for each prompt, and you'll get one entry per person. At the end of the month, the winner will be randomly selected.

What if I miss a day and post it later?

Sure, that's cool! As long as it's public and tagged #fyaphotoaday, it counts.

I don't live in North America. Can I still win?


You picked one or more of my prompts. Does that mean anything?

You get an extra entry for each prompt we picked.

I have another question...

Let us know in the comments!

See you guys in just five days!
