At Photobucket, everything we do is centered around the love of photos. The challenge… Dig through your photos to share the one you love the most. (We know it’s nearly impossible to choose just one!)

How to enter:

  • Choose the photo you love the most
  • Share via Instagram*, Twitter or Photobucket with the hashtag #LoveOfPhotos and tell us why you love it
  • Once you’ve shared, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $500 amazon gift card

Three simple steps that add up to so much more. The memories, feelings and moments our favorite photos represent are immeasurable. Curious to see what other’s are submitting? Click here!

    #LoveOfPhotos

    My sister and I were the park and was cold so I gave her my sweater. It was too big for her so I rolled it up and this happened while she was running around. It turned out really sort of cool.. – See more at: http://s816.photobucket.com/user/zldixon/media/little%20wizard_zpskoeoepu2.jpg.html?src=pb#sthash.UaNJmPRA.dpuf

    I’m not sure how to do this…I’ve uploaded a photo to my library but I’m not sure how to share it with a comment to photobucket…..Do I put it in one of the folders or what?

    • Hannah Moorhead

      Hello Meg,

      You do not need to share your photo via your Photobucket account. Simply upload your photo of choice to your Photobucket account and add the hashtag #loveofphotos in the photo description (located beneath the photo itself, you will see “Title” and “Description”)

      • Meg
        February 3, 2015

        Okay, I did that so I’m assuming that it worked…I’ll see if I can find it in the album….

    Hope this shows the one of my boy. This is my favorite because he was happy as a lark laying on his Pawpaw’s (My Dad) lap. He just looked straight at the camera and was completely still.

      Hello Robin,

      Hashtags added to previous Instagram posts are not always captured by their tracking. You can test to see if your edit worked by searching the hashtag and looking for your image. If you do not see your photo, please repost your photo with the hashtag attached. Thank you!

            Hello David,

            If you send the link to the photo itself, we can make sure that it made it in. Just click on the photo you wanted to submit in your Photobucket account, and copy the “direct link” or “email and IM”. (you will find these links in the media detail box to the right of your photo). Then just paste the link in a comment here, and we can see the photo you wished to submit.

    I love this photo the most because I love this dog. He’s my best friend, my protector, the clown who makes me laugh every day. I cannot imagine life without him.
