  • 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!

    It does not matter who these two people are all that matters is the moment created by the sound of music bringing them together. Music can bring different generations together without any words or faces just a sound.

    Hi! I uploaded my photo with the #LoveOfPhotos hash-tag, but don’t see it in the album yet. I understand there may be lag, but just to be safe, here’s my submission. 🙂

    #LoveOfPhotos

    this little girl came into my life when I needed her – I was about to lose one of my beloved pets to renal failure and I was heartbroken to know I only a few days left with her – when the neighbors told me about JuJu I wasn’t trying to replace Tootsie but knew that JuJu would help heal the hurt – and she has – she is a schnauzer/poodle/Chihuahua mix – weights a whole 8 pounds and believes with all her heart that she’s a German Shepherd – she always knows when I’m upset – she’ll climb up on my shoulder and nuzzle – she makes me laugh every single day

    Hi! I submitted a photo of my grandson with #LoveofPhotos for contest entry, but not sure if it was shared or entered in the contest. I also tweeted the photo for backup! Can you let me know if it has been entered in the contest? Thanks!

    I posted this picture with #LoveofPhotos. This is my 5 month old grandson and his first experience playing in this water fountain. I captured his fascination with water! I love this photo because I had to sit on the floor in front of him to get the right view of his eyes! It is dear to my heart and will be there forever!

    I entered a picture, but I’m not sure you will find it. I did put the hashtag #LoveOfPhotos as the title. I hope that was right. Can you let me know you found it? I’d appreciate it. I’ve never done this before.

    Hi,

    I posted a photo for this contest a few days ago when it was up to page 18, but still do not see it anywhere from page 18 up to today’s postings? Shouldn’t it be showing up by now? Thanks.

    I am not sure if I uploaded my photo correctly. I can’t see it in the recent uploads. I uploaded it to a new album in my library with the hashtag required. I do do twitter or instagram.

      Hello Andra,

      Would you send over the link to the photo you wish to submit? We can then make sure it was entered successfully.

    I entered a picture of my granddaughter, Allie, in the contest two days ago via twitter. I am only allowed a few words on twitter to tell why I love the photo so much. The picture I entered is one of Allie, who is four years old, and was taken on July 4, 2014. She is watching her first fireworks display. The look on her face says it all. It is the personification of ‘awe’. This was just the first of many amazing things she will discover in her life and I caught it through the lens of a camera, to keep and love forever.
    The link to her picture is http://t.co/i5TZny6nW5#sthash.iECKb0WS.dpuf

    Thank you Photobucket, for the great contest.

      Hello Demetra,

      You do not need to have a Twitter or Instagram account to enter this contest. Just add the hashtag #loveofphotos to the description of the photo in your Photobucket account. There will be some lag time between the time you upload your photo to the time it appears in the album. If you provide us with the link to your photo, we can locate your entry and show you where it is displaying in the album. Thank you.

      Thank you Alicia. You can also type the hashtag “#loveofphotos” in the Twitter search box, and see if your photo appears. If you are still unsure, just send us your Twitter username, and we will locate your photo and upload it.

      Hello Alicia,

      The “love of photos” album collects a sample contest entries and not all social media posts will be pulled in to the album itself. We collect all Twitter submissions using our TweetDeck tool, so if you would like to feature your entry in the album itself, please send us your twitter handle and we would be happy to upload it for you!

            I just deleted my tweet (not sure if my photo is still saved in your file but I didn’t like that others on Twitter were able to see the rest of my photos once they clicked the links attached to my pic) but I do have the photo described w #LoveOfPhotos in my photobucket album.

    Hello Jonathan,

    Facebook does not support brand hashtags, so the options for entering the contest are Twitter, Instagram or Photobucket. To enter via Twitter or Instagram, post your photo with the hashtag #loveofphotos — Another option would be to upload your photo to your Photobucket account with the hashtag #loveofphotos in the description.
