The most important thing about the photo you upload is that it's up to date. We'd suggest using a photo from the last 6 months. The photo should be a clear representation of you and the things you like doing.
We'd recommend that you upload a good quality, well lit photo that clearly shows your head and shoulders. It’s a good idea to upload more than one photo and to include photos of you doing things that you like doing to show off your personality. Avoid uploading low quality photos or passport photos.
Photos won’t be approved if they include:
- Photos of a group of people - your photo should just be of you
- Photos that have been taken from the internet and aren't of you
- Photos that contain text or contact details
- Photos that have been obviously edited
If your photo upload failed, it could be because the file you uploaded wasn't in a file format that we support.
Photos need to be in a JPG (sometimes spelt JPEG) or PNG format. You can tell what format your photo is in by looking at the last three letters after the name of the photo, e.g. ‘My holiday.jpg’.
