Some contests may be just for people in a specific city, some may be for everyone on the planet.
* Entrants must ‘Like’ our Facebook page (Facebook.com/allbymyselfie.me) so we can confirm you are who you say you are.

How do I enter a contest?
If you are eligible for a contest you need to submit a selfie that is relevant to the contest. Rules for each contest are laid out on the Contests page (Categories > Contests). When you submit your pic you must enter the hashtag of the contest name in Step 3 of the picture submission process.

What can I do to help myself win a contest?
Share your pic! Once your pic has been approved, log into AllByMySelfie.me, go to My Profile > Photos to find your pic, and select any of the Share options below your pic. When sharing to sites like Facebook and Twitter you can add a message asking your friends and followers to help you win the contest by selecting the ‘Like’ button (the ‘Thumbs up’ icon) under your pic.

How is a contest winner chosen?

How can I vote for a pic?
You can go to Categories > Contests and view pics that have been entered into contests.
