VW snapshot competition back for second year

The Volkswagen Snapshot Competition, powered by The Snapys, is back for its second year, writes Trish Whelan.

The Instagram based contest encourages photography enthusiasts to discover their creativity and upload photos to Instagram using the #VWSnapshot hashtag along with their chosen category hashtags.

The categories for this year’s competition are ‘Design’, ‘Light’, ‘Roadtrip’, Technology’ and ‘Volkswagen’. For a full list of details and categories, visit VWsnapshot.ie or see Volkswagen Ireland’s page on Instagram. 

Prizes include a trip to Barcelona, an escape to Bubblehouse, Finn Lough, drones and premium photography lighting equipment.

Twelve entrants will feature in the 2019 Volkswagen Snapshot calendar, the sales proceeds of which will be donated to Volkswagen Ireland’s 2018 charity partner Focus Ireland. Earlier this year, €3,000 was raised for Pieta House through sales of the 2018 Snapshot calendar.

Mark McGrath, Head of Marketing Volkswagen Ireland said there were over 5,000 entrants last year and the company are pleased to support this very worth cause.

The Snapshot 2018 was launched at Baggots Hutton yesterday, 13 June, where a pop-up gallery of last year’s winning entries was on display.
