The International Fanworks Day Fanlore Challenge is Fanlore's International Fanworks Day celebration. It is held on the week (Monday to Sunday) of International Fanworks Day.

Each day of the week, there is a challenge suitable for editors at any level, plus a bonus challenge for more experienced editors (or adventurous beginners!). Editors can complete either or both of the day's tasks to earn a badge.[1]

The challenge was first held in 2018.[2]

For other Fanlore challenges/festivals, see April Showers of Fannish History, the Fanlore Bingo Challenge, June Bloom, and Stub September.
