Thank for participating everyone!! The contest has ended and the winner of the contest is Amanda, you can watch her video here:



We’re having a Vine video Competition for Private Photo Vault and giving away a brand new 13″ 2015 MacBook Air.

So, here’s the deal:

  • Create an original video that shows private photo vault’s icon (for at least a moment), hashtag it with #privatephotovault, and upload it to vine between May 1st and May 7th
  • The video with the most loops by 11:59 PM PST on May 7th wins a brand new 2015 MacBook Air

The vine can be humorous, informational, etc. But remember, the most loops wins!

Here are some funny memes that have been posted on Instagram in the past that could be inspiration for a vine video.

  1. You do realize that nearly every one is going to be watching their vine all day? Also does it have to be the full six seconds?

    • Hey Mike,

      You are probably correct, however the competition has started and the rules can’t be changed now. There was no specification on length in the official rules, so it can be any length.


  2. Hey i would like to report beastvinez to you i saw him go from 9000 loops to 11000 loops in 20 minutes then when i mentioned it to him the only loops that were counting were mine.

    • Logan,

      It looks like his video will not qualify since it was uploaded before the start of the competition. It was uploaded yesterday, whereas the competition started today at 12:00 AM PST


    • Hi Noah,

      The winner will be contacted via Vine messages.

      Also, another contest participant believes you are cheating, “5k loops in 20 mins with only 20 followers”. Please keep in mind if you are determined to be cheating in the contest, you will be disqualified.


      • Will using the app Socialbooster on iOS be considered cheating? You basically just get coins and then use them to get real loops from real vine users. Would that be considered cheating? I mean, the whole goal of the comp is to get loops, and its not like I’m getting fake loops, so I don’t see where I’m cheating. Thanks!

        • Hi Noah,

          I looked into SocialBoost and it seems as though it would fall into the category of tampering with the contest. As a result, videos that use SocialBoost will be disqualified from the contest.


          • Are you sure this is against the rules? I mean, if the whole contest is about promotion, real people are still seeing the vine and giving actual loops, and might download the app in the end. I would hope you would reconsider, because not allowing us to get loops from means like that pretty much doesn’t allow anyone like me even a chance. Thanks, and I hope you take another look.

  3. Hey I’m reporting Noah Balduf cause he got 5k loops in 20 mins with like 20 followers. So please take a look at him

  4. Hey is it true you all just dmed me (best twerk vines 428k) saying I cheated and I’m disqualified ? I have a lot of followers so I’m getting a lot of loops. Please get back to me thank you.

    • Hi Tori,

      No, that was not me who DM’d you, someone must be trying to impersonate me on Vine. You are still fine.


  5. Hey admin plz reply to this is socialbooster against the rules to use or not? I really want to use it if I can

    • Hi Kale,

      If a video is discovered to be using SocialBoost or other similar apps to get loops, it will be considered tampering and result in disqualification from the contest.


  6. hi, its best twerk vines. i was suspended so im going to upload on a 15k account i have and have all my vine friends revine it so do not think i am cheating since it has 15k followers

  7. Hello, im jasons edits on vine if you are wondering why i have about 12000 loops its because of my vine edit friends who revined me, just to let you know incase you thought i was cheating

  8. What happens if you just constantly watch your own vine 24/7 just to get a lot of loops? Does that disqualify you? Not saying I’ll do it but like someone else mentioned above, a lot of people will probably do that.. And how will you know if someone is using a third party app?

  9. USERNAME nate just jumped 30k loops in 15 minutes. . IF THAT isn’t weird than I don’t know what is

  10. Hello,
    I was wondering if you knew if the current leader, Nate might be cheating somehow? 175,000 loops on an account that has 85 followers seems virtually impossible.


  11. Hello,
    This is Amenda Heeld. I’ve received a private message on Vine from “Kevin” at Private Photo Vault saying that I’ve been disqualified for cheating, and he instructed me to remove my post. My follower count and the number of likes and revines are all consistent with the loop count, so I would assume the message is a scam since it is also from an unverified account with no prior activity. Please let me know if you know anything about this. Thanks.

  12. Please let us know who the winner is on here. I keep receiving messages and coments from accounts claiming to be someone from Private Photo Vault.

    • Hi Amanda,

      I recorded the number of loops each person had last night at midnight. I will now verify that the winning submission meets the qualification for the contest and send out an e-mail shortly.
