    NOTE: If you're not logged in to your Snapfish account, you'll be asked to log in or create a new account on the next page.
  2. You can either enter a photo that's already in your Snapfish account, or upload a new photo from your computer.

    • To upload a new photo: Click the "upload photo button," and a new pop-up will open. Click the "browse" button in the pop-up to find the photo on your computer. Once you've selected it, click the "upload now" button that appears.
  3. Next, enter a title and description for your photo, and the name of your city and state in the fields next to the preview of your photo.
  4. Click the box next to "I agree with contest rules and requirements." You can read the rules and requirements by clicking on the blue link.
