To submit a photo for the Pantone Soapmaking Challenge, post a photo of soap or soapmaking to Instagram and use #NationalSoapmakingDay during the week before or the week after National Soapmaking Day. The submitted photo must show up in a search of #NationalSoapmakingDay to be considered.

For 2021, Pantone announced its first-ever color duo; the colors for 2021 are ultimate gray and illuminating (a lemony mustard color). "The union of an enduring ultimate gray with the vibrant yellow illuminating expresses a message of positivity supported by fortitude. Practical and rock-solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a color combination that gives us resilience and hope."
