Rebel Rebel 9 Day Challenge


Emma is the editor & creator (and occasionally writer) for The Messy Heads. She enjoys yellow curry, print media, and singing to herself.

To launch Issue #2 of Messy Heads print, we are inviting you guys to come create, collab, and have a chance to not only get on the blog but also win a free Messy sweatshirt!

This is how it’s gonna work.

  • Do as many or as few of the daily challenges as you want. The more you do, the higher your chance is of being featured or winning a sweatshirt. You must post your submissions on Instagram on the designated day, you can’t just hashtag old photos- not gonna fly!
  • Make sure to hashtag your posts #messyissue2 #rebelrebel and tag @themessyheads so we can find you!
  • The challenges are split into three sections: the same as are in the magazine. Every three days a blog post will go up with a few favorite submissions from Instagram! At the end of the 9 day period we will randomly pick THREE people to win a free sweatshirt! Just an added bonus- we want this challenge to be for the sake of creation, connection in our community, and to celebrate the launch of mag #2!
