Welcome to the best of #FP4Party for January 2019. There are another two FP4Parties coming this year (with the second in full swing), so this shortlist certainly won’t be the last.

We saw 379 entries on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram the course of January 21st – 27th’s post week, which was a pleasant surprise considering the terrible weather most people seemed to have been suffering under (FP4Party curse?).

Those 330 entries were shortlisted down to 21 – three per day. There was more overlap across the three social networks than we initially expected and for this month at least, we’ve been able to use Twitter links for all the shortlisted entries. We’ll keep checking and a Massive thanks to Diz, Michael Bitaxi and Ben Reynolds for the help collating and shortlisting for Jan.

As you probably know by now, the community-voted winner is up to you. Voting is open until next Saturday, February 16th. Here’s the shortlist.
