Share on Social

We’ve designed a People’s Telly “Vote for Us” sticker searchable Instagram Stories and TikTok.
  • After you’ve taken or uploaded your photo or video, stickers can be added by tapping on the sticker icon in the top right corner of your Story’s editing options.

  • Once you tap on the sticker icon (it looks like a square smiley face), you’ll see a list of stickers appear

  • Search @tellyawards and the circular “vote for us” badge will appear.
