All photos you submit must be a minimum of 150KB and a maximum of 10MB. The profile photo is designed to use a landscape image (horizontal orientation, I.E. 700x560) and will not allow for the full image to be displayed if you are trying to use a portrait (vertical) image instead. If your problem persists, you may try uploading from a different device and/or browser.
We recommend trying to vote again from a different device or browser, as this will often fix most issues. Another possibility could be that it has not been a full 24 hours since your last vote. If you continue to experience difficulties, please contact our Support Team and we will be happy to help.

We have a strict “no refund” policy which Voters agree to when they make a purchase. Since winners are decided based upon votes the public casts, we do not issue refunds once a vote has been fully processed in our system. As a Voter, you are responsible for understanding this upon casting votes for models competing in the Competition.
Each Competitor is randomly assigned a Group at the beginning of the Competition. There are multiple rounds in the Competition, and you’re only competing against the other Competitors within your Group for the first few rounds. We make every effort to ensure that Groups contain an equal number of Competitors throughout the Competition.

No. Colossal.org runs the Fab Over 40 competition as part of a fundraising campaign on behalf of DTCare, a 501 (c)(3) charity, and has secured a 2-page advertorial in New Beauty Magazine that will feature the winner.
National Breast Cancer Foundation is one of the foremost support organizations for those affected by breast cancer. Over the last decade, NBCF has provided over 192,000 mammograms, over 858,000 patient navigation services, and over 240,000 breast health education services to women in need. DTCare selected NBCF as the designated grantee of this year's competition to help provide the funding needed to continue expanding the reach of these programs.
Many charities with honorable missions lack the bandwidth to run effective fundraising campaigns year-round. Through this competition, DTCare allows the National Breast Cancer Foundation to spend less time raising funds, and more time focusing on their mission.
