Rockstar Games launches GTA 5 #epicphotobomb competition

Rockstar Games has launched the first GTA 5 photobomb contest for its in-game Snapmatic photo-sharing app.

The GTA developer is rewarding gamers who have been utilising the Snapmatic photo-sharing app in the game with the first photobomb competition.

GTA 5 gamers will have until November 4 to post their entries into the #epicphotobomb competition, with the rewards including official t-shirts, a Chop toy and a phone case.

“For all you compulsive shutterbugs out there, entrance into our very first Snapmatic photo content will run from right now through till end of the day Monday, November 4th,” reads the official competition page. “With this inaugural content theme of #EpicPhotobom – we want to see the best photobombs you can come up with.”

The five winning photobombs will a special GTA 5 prize pack, which is said to include an official game t-shirt, an iFruit phone case, stickers and a Chop plushie.

“Whether it be a unexpectedly volatile pedestrian coming to clobber you, a scantily clad Trevor running amok in the middle of your self-satisfied selfie or a rival player causing an explosive disturbance while you calmly attempt to snap your sweet Los Santos Custom-ised hot rod – we’ll pick our five of our favourite awesomely amusing and artfully composed iFruit camera pics that fit the bill and will share the winning shots here at Newswire.”

To enter you can either upload your photos from the iFruit app for iOS and Android devices or go to the RockStar Social Club Snapmatic page. You’ll need to add the #epicphotobomb hashtag to have your picture considered for the competition though.

The competition launches just after Rockstar Games announced it has been forced to delay the GTA 5 Stimulus Package which contains free GTA$ bundles.

“We know many of you are anxiously waiting for us to show you the GTA$ Stimulus Package money we announced a couple of weeks back. As mentioned in that post, we of course want to ensure that game progress loss issues are sufficiently sorted before distributing GTA$ to everyone,” stated an official Rockstar spokesperson.
