When uploading a pic to FP Me, there are few guidelines that will make it easier!

1. Make sure your photos are 800 pixels x 800 pixels
2. Make sure your photos are in jpeg format
3. Include a trend hashtag
4. Did you know that your image doesn’t have to be of you wearing Free People product? Upload inspiration pics to trends!

To get the most out of FP Me, it’s best to build your profile out to its fullest potential. This makes it easier to connect with others in the community and for Free People to connect with you.

Here are some guidelines to follow:

1. To access your profile, hover over My Account at the top of your page. Select View My Profile.

2. Click Edit Profile

3. Here, you can link your blog, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest accounts to your profile. Synching Instagram also makes it so that you can upload photos directly from your Instagram account.

4. Next, be sure to fill in sizes & height, so that others in the community can get a sense of the apparel. One of the best parts about FP Me is that you can see how girls with different styles and body types look in the pieces you might want to buy.

Hi guys! You can upload ANY pic you want. It can be an inspiration pic that fits a trend or a style pic wearing Free People. You can also upload as many as you’d like to enter you more than once. Unfortunately this is open to US & Canadian residents only.

Hope that answers everyone’s questions!

Thanks :)

Agreed with Lisa! I love FP, but you guys are really lame for not having an Android App. Seriously it’s 2015 you have no excuse! Glad your promos are so biased.

how will the winner be determined? by judges, voting, or is it random? thanks!

worst contest instructions I have ever encountered. Still don’t get it. Is a simple entry too much to ask? hadn’t heard of you before. now I don’t want to.

Hi Saegan — the winners will be determined by a panel of judges. The scoring details are outlined under terms & conditions if you want to take a look!

Lisa & Natalia — Thanks for your feedback about the Free People App. We are currently looking into Android, but for the time being, you can still enter Sur la Sol by uploading via desktop. A great way to do so is by syncing Instagram on your profile, and uploading right from there!

Hello! I was wondering how many photographs we could enter- I saw on the Terms and Conditions that it is limited to one photograph per day, is this correct? Or did I misunderstand, and it is limited to one photograph per person? Thank you so much!

Free People

Mary — you can actually submit as many photos as you want. We’ll look at all of the entries as a whole, and will take each of your photos into consideration.

Good luck!

This is such a great opportunity! Are there any age restrictions and where could I find a link to the terms & conditions?

Caroline

Do the photos have to be of you?

hi FP — i think by “sur la sol” you mean “under the sun,” yes? in that case in Spanish it would be “bajo el sol.” “sur” means “south” in Spanish, not “under/below” as it does in French and “sol” is masculine, not feminine. i don’t mean to be pretentious! just seeing that would make any Spanish-speaker cringe…i honestly didn’t even understand it when the e-mail about the contest first arrived in my inbox…

Hi FreePeople!! I am not sure if I broke the rules by making pic collages for my inspiration pics.. When I saw “photo” and also some of my pics in my collage I found on Instagram from the sponsors… So are collages not a “photo”… and Bc the pics for inspiration I didn’t take them myself? Thanks in advance! -April :)
