The lights are on
We've seen a ton of great images born out of the iFruit camera app in Grand Theft Auto V. Now, Rockstar is putting the community's skills to the test with an official photo contest.
Starting now and running through Monday, November 4, the #EpicPhotoBomb contest pits shutterbugs against one another in the quest to capture the best photobomb. To enter, simply upload your shots to the Snapmatic page from your iFruit phone, visit your My Photos section of the Rockstar Social Club, and add the hashtag #EpicPhotoBomb.
Rockstar will pick the five best shots and share them on its Newswire. Each winner also receives a prize pack featuring a GTA V tee-shirt, iFruit phone case, and a stuffed animal of Chop.
Our TakeWith the Rockstar Social Club and Grand Theft Auto Online, Rockstar is starting to foster a strong sense of community. These sorts of reward contests are a great way of rewarding players so heavily invested in their virtual worlds. We hope to see more of these types of contests moving forward, especially in relation to the user generated missions and races that we expect to see en masse once Rockstar releases the creation tools.

Oh, Do I have the insane pics to upload!
There are already a huge number of absolutely hilarious photos up on the Social Clubs, most of the new intentional entries will probably pale in comparison.
That is really awesome,the pictures will be awesome.
Oh hell yes I'm doing this, I love taking pictures of the silly stuff in this game. I found a crossdresser at the Vinewood boulevard and took a few pics of him with my online character.
Awesome photo meet character people. Maybe photo meet Zombies blind speak mean genius or don't know zombies.
Maybe if they fixed the Snapmatic i could actually take photos...
It always takes me forever to upload photos to the rockstar social club, so I don't. Maybe I should try though, but I am not too creative so I doubt they would pick mine. I wonder how many they are going to get inside the strip club?
Yeeaaahhh...Rockstar fails again. My phone isn't compatible...and it's pretty new, Droid DNA. LAME!!!
This is a good idea. I find snapping photos in the game oddly satisfying. I wish it was easier to see other people's photos in game.
