Q. The number of Facebook shares on my photo is higher than someone ahead of me in the ranking, are you sure the ranking is correct?
A. We don’t share vote counts publicly. Share numbers do show publicly, but they don't contribute to votes.

 

Q. What does "Unofficial Winner" mean?
A. After each week of voting, we validate all votes before determining a winner. We invalidate any votes exceeding the limits in the rules - 1 vote per photo per day, as well as any other votes that don't comply with the rules. For this reason, the photo ranked as #1 at the end of the voting period may not be named the official weekly winner.

 

EDITORIAL JUDGING

 

Q. How will the photos be judged?
A. As it says in the Official Rules, judging will be based on overall fit and healthy appearance of entrant as shown in the photos (30%); personality of entrant as expressed through the photos (20%); quality of photo resolution, lighting, and aesthetic image (20%); quality of response to the question “Why are you the Face of Fitness?” (including correct spelling, grammatical, punctuation and meaningful/inspirational nature of response) (30%).

 

Q. Will the judges really look at all entries?
A. Yes, they really are looking at all entries.

 

Q. How is the winner chosen?
The Grand Prize Winner is selected by a panel of judges from a group of five finalists. She will be selected based on her overall fit and healthy appearance in her photo(s), personality of entrant as expressed through the photos, quality of the photos, and quality of her essay. One of the finalists comes from the weekly Reader's Choice voting. See Official Rules for more details.

 

Q. Does the weekly voting play any part in deciding the winner?
It’s possible. Upon winning a week of voting, the entrant becomes a Readers' Choice semi-finalist and is eligible to compete in the Readers’ Choice final voting. The winner of the Readers’ Choice voting automatically becomes one of the five finalists, whom the judges will select the Grand Prize Winner from.
