We had an amazing start of the year creating more than 350,000 records from all over the world, especially Australia who is competing aggressively as our number 1 country for uploads! As the seasons change, we are excited to see what tremendous growth we will continue to see all over the world! Thanks to everyone who participated and made January a great month for photos and transcriptions!


So to continue the momentum, we are offering the next edition of the “Win the Pin” Contest!!


Each month you’ll get the chance to compete for the unique pin of the month. All you have to do to win the pin is to upload or transcribe enough images for BillionGraves to get a spot on the leaderboard by the end of the month. Those 50 Uploaders and 50 Transcribers will be the lucky winners of that month’s pin.

And finally;  we are pleased to unveil February’s ‘Win the Pin’ contest design. 

BG Win the Pin ContestEach pin is hand-crafted and made to last. In fact, the NCAA football bowl game coins are made by the same company! And let’s be honest… how can you go wrong with the BG logo?!


So here here the rules. You get on the leaderboard, whether for uploading photos or transcriptions, and you win. It’s that simple. Keep an eye on the leaderboard this month to make sure you get to win this pin.


Happy BillionGraves-ing!
