    Hi! I was a participant in this contest. While I loved mostd all the submissions, I’m curious how the #2 winner came to be. The instructions were clearly marked to chose a photo pertaining to travel, and then to append an appropriate travel related response. Again, I loved most all the submissions, including the one in question, but I do have to ask how this pertains to travel.

    Humbly,
    David Pellin

      Hi David,

      Thank you for your feedback and participation in the #pbQuotes contest. As you noted, the contest was travel themed. Since some users may not have traveled or plan to in the near future, we extended the meaning of the word “travel” to encompass both physical travels as well as the everyday travels in life’s journey. “Are you on the road to amazing travels or walking a path to discover new things around you?” Sometimes the things that lead us the most are the everyday things around us.

      Please reach out if you have any more questions or feedback!

      Again, we appreciate your feedback and interest. Be sure to check out our #pbNature contest that will be running through the month of April.

    I find it vastly disturbing that you’ve conveniently curated the rest of my reponses. To make matters even worse, I had several other submissions that never made it to the contest page: http://instagram.com/p/mE5vXwOxL_/

    This is just one example of several…

    Again, I say that the validity of the entire contest should be scrutinized. At the very least, those who participated should be given the same prize as the winners!

    Humbly, David Pellin

      Good morning David,

      We are sorry for the misunderstanding regarding the #pbQuotes contest. We have looked at the example of the photo you submitted that did not make it in, and would like to provide some clarification. The hashtag must be included in the “Title” or “Description” of the photo to be entered into the contest. The hashtag you provided was only included in the “Tags”, so it therefor did not make it into our contest album.

      We do appreciate your time, effort and loyalty, and have added 3 months of free “Plus” usage to your Photobucket account.

      Again, we apologize if there was any confusion around the contest or hashtag submissions. We have recently created a ‘Hashtag Overview” if you would like to check it out: http://blog.photobucket.com/hashtags-101/
