BHG Photo Faves Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to the BHG Photo Faves Frequently Asked Questions.

What is BHG Photo Faves?

BHG Photo Faves is a free site that runs weekly photo contests. There are multiple categories of contests, and each time you upload a photo to one of our photo contest categories on, your photo will be added to our weekly contest. When your photo is entered we send you an email that you can forward on to friends and family. Photos are ranked by the number of votes they get, so pass the email you receive to as many people as possible and tell them to click on the "Vote For Me" button under the photo to vote. Then, share the photo to Facebook to get even more people involved!

After the week of voting is over, we'll send out a certificate to the winning photo.
