Congratulations! Will you have to get a background check now?


No they said check will come in 6 to 8 weeks. Background check is for trips won.

I have a question, and thought maybe someone here would have a good answer. Sorry if it is wrong place to post. I won a portable speaker and I just got it in mail... sort of. I go to open the green box it was shipped in, and the tape was already ripped and the speaker is gone. The manual and cable are still in box though. Do I contact post office? Marlboro? Just let it go? Thanks for hive mind help

I am sorry this happened to you I think I would contact Marlboro and see what they say. They may tell you to contact the post office or hopefully they will replace it for you, if they are out of speakers maybe they will send you a different gift.

So I couldn't find a list of winners for the Portfolio contest. Anyone else see one?

Not yet unless I am looking in the wrong place also., I think they said they will announce winners soon.!

Everyone please send out prayers for Forksmother on here, she has been such a wonderful help to everyone for so long doing the Marlboro contest, and at this time her hubby is in ICU in grave condition. We are praying for your family.

Marlboro is so weird! I called to see why none of my photos have ever made it up on the website and that I know for a fact they are good enough. I was told the judges choose what goes up but I could still win. Does that make sense to put up some of the crappy shit they have up there and keep some of the better pictures off? I'm not saying I'm the best but I have much better pictures than some of those that are up there.

My picture like others went in black this week, I also called but it never got corrected, and I kept submitting the photo in color. Yet Others had theirs corrected and a lot of them have been posted twice. you take a good look at them.

I say keep plugging away, like they said even though it did not get posted (your Pics) you still have a chance to win something.

I spoke with Forksmother, and her hubby is getting better! It will nice to see him home with her for Xmas.

That's good news Belle!

Finally!! I clicked on most popular and found one of mine! It's brown bark on a tree. Yay I actually got to "like" one of mine. Now if I can get them to post my gorgeous flamingo feathers. Oh and if anyone wants to like my picture my name is Stephanie G. Franklin, TN and I would love you forever! I'll like yours too if you'll let me know which ones. I'm so excited!

I agree. I see crappy pictures posted by the same people getting in the gallery while I know mine are much better. I posted three or four lightning shots that were better than any on the most popular page, but they never got any exposure in the gallery so people could vote on them. I even saw two people from different states posting the exact same picture and both of them getting in the gallery for it.

I think getting in the gallery is totally hit or miss, but some people seem to have a leg up on the rest of us.

I checked the most popular this morning and could not find your picture there.

My bark picture is 5 rows down below the strawberries on the texture page, most popular. I just uploaded my awesome 3 squirrel photo in the shape of a heart. I have such trouble getting the size down small enough and now there's a white line at the bottom for some reason. Oh well. Vote for me if you want to. Who else needs votes/likes?

How do people already have 400 likes on the first day of into the wild? And what is the little yellow symbol next to the like symbol?

You can email pictures to me and I will resize them and send them back. uvdan@earthlink.net Be sure to mention this forum in the subject line.

I FOUND THE BARK PICTURE! Very nice! I will be sure to add some thumbs up to it.

Well finally...that is so exciting, about time you got one in with all those good photos of yours Halleluahh!

Once your photo hits 20 likes i gets a gold key symbol Marlboro gave out movie tickets a few weeks ago, my hubby hit it one week and did not get the tickets. Not sure the reasoning behind it all.

Gonna try and put another one on this morning. Still haven't seen any others but I'm getting used to being disappointed lol.

To everyone who won the trip to Vegas, I pray that your plane was not cancelled or delayed because of the bad weather! That is horrible to wait so long for something so great, and Mother Nature puts a big damper on it. Yo those that went, let us know how you all enjoyed yourself and fill us in on all the goods Please, cannot wait to hear what you all did.

Think positive and keep plugging at it, we have to remember how many thousands of people are playing, and you are lucky to get yours in over everyone. I will go vote now.

Have a great day everyone, and Happy holidays and Shopping to all! Stay Safe and Enjoy!

Thanks!!

I called Marlboro and they said Sunday was last day of photo contest winnings, but there is more to go on the photos, just no more money. I cannot get my photo corrected out of black and white, I submitted it in color and it accepted it in color but shows up black and white. they said that they are having problems and cannot undo the photos. How are some people getting theirs in color? I am using last filter box to the right, and it accepts the photo in color?

That happened to me today too! I wanted my color photo but it came out b&w. There whole system for this is frustrating. I've submitted no less than 8 pictures and of course the least desirable one was put up. What sucks was you couldn't even vote for your own photo. They just don't give out any information and you have to accept what you get.

I tried to find your photo to vote? is it under Grayce13? or another name?

It should be under Stephanie G. Franklin, TN. I still haven't found any in the enter the wild which is the one I entered the most photos for.

Ok I gave in and uploaded another picture today making sure I didn't put a filter on it and of course it's there again. That same one with the lines in it. It was a pretty little bird but now not so pretty lol. Belle, what are some of your pictures and what name?

mine are under my middle name Maxinne from fort Washington, I have the racoon photo, it is suppose to be in brown and the sky blue!!!! I took it during the day, when it was caught up the tree. I also took this photo on my Samsung pocket camcorder, Camera that I won from Marlboro 3 yrs ago. It takes real nice photos.

I found it! What a cute photo! I just wish they didn't have that filter on it, I bet it's awesome. I voted for you

I do not understand how people are getting their photos submitted in color. what are we missing or doing worng? I am using the last box to the right that has no filter, it is just an X. it goes in ok in color, but publishes in blk and white? I wish someone can explain why this is happening,

Thank you for the vote. My pic looks horrible in blk and wht.

I have the same problem this week and last week. Something has happened and it sucks. I wish they did not have the filters. If somebody wants black and white, they will submit black and white.

I am going to call them this morning when they open at 9 am to see if they can help me put my photo in in color. it will look horrible in blk and wht and lose the whole focus of the photo. Hubby submitted his, and his end of the road beach scene looks terrible. the sun is black and so is the water, that is not being fair to everyone!

Well I submitted a picture for finish lines that I think fits pretty well. It's of a paved path going around a curve in a cemetery. I think that's as finished as you can get lol. We'll see if it posts. It was a beautiful lush green ivy covered path which of course is now b&w. I hate to say it but I'm glad this is almost over. lol

My husband and I cannot stop laughing! We cannot wait to see the photo, I pray they post it! I called this mporning and they cannot do anything about the blk and wht, they are having issues! I even tried different browser and no go.

Are you able to see any of the Finish Lines photos? I don't see any yet. I've been looking all day.

No I am still seeing the wild life photos.

I called and Marlboro said Technical issues! My photo went to black and white when I hit submit again! it was color until I hit that submit.

Oh and my husband has used 3 different browsers to submit on his this week, and all came out the same, it goes in black and white. So it is not your browser, it is Marlboros filter issues.

I just submitted one in color and it went to black and white. AAAAAAGGGGHHHH! Darned filters!

When I select "Finish Lines" from the drop down menu on the right I get "Sorry, no photos at this time.".
