    If using instagram do I just do
    #loveofspring? Or do I tag photobucket as well?

      Hello Coy,

      To enter via Instagram, you will just need to upload your photo with the hashtag. You can then search for the hashtag in the search bar to make sure your photo made it in!

    Well, as here in MA we are still under 8 feet of snow and doubt there will be anything green by the end of March, I will have to post an old favorite photo here:

    I’m confused by the phrasing of step #2. I’m not sure what “Instagram of Photobucket” means – please clarify. Thanks!

    So . . . I don’t do Twitter or Instagram ( . . . pause here while readers laugh . . . ). Is there any other way to enter?

    There is three plus feet of snow on the ground so good luck with giving everyone a fair shake at this!!!

      Spring weather can be unpredictable. We’ve got snow here in Denver! All photos will receive a fair shake.

    Hannah,

    Just one question. Is this a drawing or contest? It says contest but then says entered to win gift card, which sounds like a lottery or drawing. Thanks in advance!

    I will do it either way, though!

      Hello Charles!

      This is a contest and the winner will receive the $500 gift card.

    Must I have a Photobucket account to participate?

    • Hannah Moorhead
      March 6, 2015

      Hello David,

      If you post on Twitter or Instagram, you will not need a Photobucket account.

    Does this picture need to be a recent picture? Like this season?

    • Hannah Moorhead
      March 6, 2015

      Hi Lily,

      Feel free to use a photo from past seasons!

  14. Connie
    March 6, 2015

    Does the loveofspring photo have to be a new pic or can we use past photos?

    • Hannah Moorhead
      March 6, 2015

      Hello Connie,

      You may use past photos. However, if you are posting to Instagram, make sure its a new post. Hashtagging past photos will not work on Instagram.

      Hello Robert,

      We have snow here in Denver too. February and March are often snowy months here for us. But it does mean one thing… Spring really is just around the corner!

      Hello Gabrielle,

      Feel free to use the hashtag on several photos!

        Good that the contest lasts that long, because it is nothing like spring here. It was still −3° this morning!
