How to enter

The competition format is the same as 2017 – upload a photo and then add stickers of Jamie and Emma’s faces.

  • First, take a photo of you and your family – or use an existing one (try and use a square format!)
  • Go to win.heart.co.uk, upload the photo and crop it to a square
  • Customise your image with Jamie and Emma’s faces, plus other fun stickers.
  • Drag the corners of the faces and stickers to resize, or tap outside the sticker to rotate it.
  • Submit your entry and share it with your friends!

Judging criteria

Winning entries will be selected by the Heart FM judges based on the most creative, entertaining, relevant and feel good submissions”.

Here’s some thoughts on what you can do, and some winning examples from last year. Sketch out your ideas before you do the photo shoot, to make sure it will work and plan where the stickers will go. Try adding text to your photo in Photoshop or Canva before you upload it – but make sure it’s readable. It’s worth uploading a random photo to the website first and checking out all the stickers on it without submitting, just so you know what’s available for you to use!

  • Creative – can you create Jamie and Emma’s faces in an unusual way, and combine with the stickers? Two of last year’s winners involved food – Jamie & Emma burnt into toast, and made into cookies! Time consuming, but definitely creative.

  • Entertaining – take your photo in a public or funny situation, something that Jamie and Emma can ask you about if brought on air. Do you have a good embarrassing story to tell about the photo, like hitching a ride at the local bus stop?

  • Relevant can you make your entry relevant to that week’s prize, to the destination, to Heart FM, to Jamie & Emma? Read the details of each holiday and decide which one you’d most love to win.

  • Feel good – does the photo make you smile? Including cute children or pets should give your photo a feelgood factor! If you’re a regular Heart London listener, do you know anything fun about Jamie & Emma that could feature in the photo?

Before you submit your entry, check the other entries – does yours stand out amongst them? There’s one entry allowed per weekly competition – so make sure it’s a good one!

If Jamie and Emma pick you as a winner, they’re likely to call you the day before (from a London number) to find out a bit more – and to check you’ll be around to answer the on-air phone call during the next day’s breakfast show. They might tell you that you’ve been shortlisted, but personally I’ve only heard of two people who have been told they’re on a Heart ‘shortlist’ but not gone on to win the prize… it’s a way to ensure you’ll definitely answer their on-air phone call, but still be surprised and excited when you find out you’ve won!

Check out the rest of last year’s winning entries in my Facebook album… I’ll be adding this year’s winners to an album as they’re announced!

NEW! Online competition

And another one we can enter – this one is great if you don’t feel particularly creative. This competition has no ‘face’ stickers – but you can add holiday stickers and text to your photo.

Each week 20 entries are chosen at random and then those are judged on the ‘most creative, entertaining, relevant and feel good submission’ – there is only one winner per week (4 holidays in total, same entry dates and holidays as the Heart NW competition).

Enter the online competition at http://win.heart.co.uk/faces-for-florida/uk/competition
T&Cs for the online version are here

In summary…

  • If you live in the North West, enter all three competitions!
  • If you live elsewhere, enter the main judged ‘Jamie & Emma’ Heart London comp AND enter the same photo into the weekly online competition

There’s 44 holidays to be won so I’m hoping my readers pick up at least half of those – good luck!

    My entry has made it onto Hearts Online Gallery… im very excited as im hoping this is a positive sign that I may win. Has anyone else had their entry posted on the gallery BEFORE they got told they’d won? I just don’t want to get my hopes up too much xxxx

  2. Sarah baines says:

    Hi, where I entered on the Bristol heart website there were no face stickers only beach-style ones. It said nothing about Jamie and Emma either… is it a different competition? I am confused as the prizes are the same. I was super hopeful but most others seem to have face stickers so i feel like i have missed a trick somewhere? I also haven’t had any email conformation for entering which is strange…? Thanks! 🙂

    • Di says:

      If you read the post above, you’ll see that you’re entering the online version, which has 4 holidays to be won (and no face options). You can also enter the Jamie and Emma one. There are 3 different competitions, and I don’t think anyone gets an email confirmation of entry.

  3. Amy G says:

    Di , can you enter the online one every week? or is it one entry per person?

    • Di says:

      Yes – it’s four separate prize draws, so entries won’t be carried over and each one is treated as a new competition.

  4. Tanja says:

    I’m very very new to competitions but decided to give this a go sent picture but then tried to find terms and conditions but couldn’t find them so added another picture of my cat of all things cute but not family picture thinking it would pull up terms and conditions but it didn’t it just entered picture even though I didn’t confirm my details grrr I’m a idiot,will I be disqualified it was a genuine mistake I was quite pleased with my pic and was hoping for my first ever win lol can I reuse my picture on other dates thanks x

    • Angie says:

      No your second image will just be removed xxx

      • Tanja says:

    Hey Di,
    just looking at the Ts + Cs for the online comp…in the heading it says “Heart UK (exc London and North West)” I’m getting a bit confused as to whether I can enter this or not now – I’m in North Wales and have entered the main Emma+Jamie comp and the North West one that started on Monday….

    • Di says:

      There’s nothing in the T&Cs to suggest people can’t enter if they live in the Heart London/NW areas – I think it’s more for the website teams to know that these T&Cs shouldn’t be on the London and North West websites!

  6. Travel not complete says:

    This is the highlight of the year for many of us, i’m hoping I get a look in this year also, good luck everyone xxx

  7. Elysia Benn says:

    So excited for this competition! Hope this is the year my ideas are going to be good enough!

  8. Hannah says:
