STEP ONE: TAKE A PHOTO WITH A RASPBERRY PI

There are tons of ways to take photos with the Raspberry Pi, here is a video on how to set up your Raspberry Pi with the camera module or PiNoIR.

You’ll need to connect the camera module to the CSI port, located behind the Ethernet port, and enable the camera software. Once you’re connected, test the camera and try using it with Bash or Python.

We have a few great tutorials to get you started in the Adafruit Learning System too!

STEP TWO: TAG THE PHOTO with #RPPA

The most important thing is to tag the photo with #RPPA. We'll be mostly using Twitter, Instagram, Google+ to find them.

STEP THREE: POST PHOTO TO TWITTER, G+, FLICKR, INSTAGRAM, FACEBOOK, EMAIL, ETC. WITH TAG #RPPA

Post your #RPPA tagged photo on: Twitter, Google+, Flickr, Instagram, just make sure it's easily searchable on those services by tagging it with #RPPA.
