Show Us Your Smiling Face Photo Contest

Contest Description: This is the one contest of the year that you don't have to be the photographer, you have to be in the photo! Enter your photo taken of you at a Disney Park or Resort.

Have a question? Feel free to ask.
Don't have a photo to contribute? Wait until voting starts and vote for your favorite photo!

Official Contest Rules
The rules will be very similar as previous years.
Contests will run from Saturday-Friday 11:59pm PACIFIC TIME, submissions after this time will not be included. An individual thread will be created for each contest. My intention is to open new contests and post polls on Saturday mornings. I hope to be able to stick to that, pending any unforeseen circumstances.

1 submission per member, per contest. Once you post your picture, you cannot replace it. You cannot re-use the same entry in multiple contests even if used in a different year. Obviously I cannot remember every picture posted in a contest so try your best to remember if you have entered a picture.

Pictures can be taken with any type of camera (film or digital).

Pictures can not be altered in any way, except to adjust size or add your own personal watermark. This is a photography contest, not a photo-editing contest.

Please resize pictures to be no larger than 1024x768 OR 768X1024

You may attach the photo to your post or upload it to your own personal site and link the photo. You are responsible to ensure the photo is viewable at all times (and not subject to bandwidth limitations).

Pictures can be taken at any time for any contest (if you visited in April of 2002, you can use those pictures for any contest that interests you).

Pictures must be taken by the member submitting the entry, and not by a family member or by a cast member (meaning you physically have to take the entry. CM’s are of course allowed to enter their own photos).

If 10 or less people participated, 1 poll will be posted, and it will be open for 7 days.
If more than 10 entries exist, the entries will be divided into similar-sized groups, and will be listed in the order that they were submitted.

No breaking of park rules or common etiquette to take your pictures. (No accessing restricted areas, no flash photography on attractions which do not allow it....stuff like that)

The overall subject of the contest is "Disney". Although some contests are specific to areas of Walt Disney World, anything "Disney related" can be taken for other contests, including, but not limited to, other Disney parks. For contests like the "Fantasyland photo contest", any Disney park's Fantasyland would be accepted. Some contests allow photos not taken on Disney property and this is noted in the topic description.

Me and my cousin. Technically, her mom is my cousin, so however that works out...whatever. It was one of those hot-as-the-surface-of-the-sun days, and I think we were rained on right before we got in line for the ride.

Do photopass photos that have been "embellished" by Disney qualify for this contest? Ride photos nowadays have lots of added embellishments.

I went back and checked, we haven't had this particular contest in a few years. It was specified at one time that PhotoPass photos could not be used, due to the photographer actually being a professional. However, my recent family vacation proved to me that other than a couple on-ride selfies, I would not have been in any of the pictures if I didn't allow for PhotoPass.


I know, TL;DR. Final answer, yeah, go ahead and use PhotoPass photos.

As photopass is allowed...
Last month's trip at MNSSHP, applying for residency in the Haunted Mansion.
Yes those are our "Death Certificates" (as Constance told us to!) and a little fun fact, our Death Date just happens to be our wedding date as well. Thus the zombified bride and groom.Haunted_2_1024.jpg
