Rockstar Launches GTA 5 Photobombing Competition

Rockstar Launches GTA 5 Photobombing Competition

Snapmatic - Main

Starting today, RockStar Games is asking Grand Theft Auto V players to submit their very best photobombs.

This weekend, Rockstar Games, the developer behind Grand Theft Auto V, is asking players to tap into their inner Ansel Adams for an in-game photography contest. Though, the results will probably be far less photogenic.

"For all you compulsive shutterbugs out there," the developer said in a post on Rockstar.com, "entrance into our very first Snapmatic photo contest will run from right now through till end of day Monday, November 4. With this inaugural contest theme of #EpicPhotobomb--we want to see the best photobombs you can come up with."

To enter the contest, players will need to snap a few pictures on their in-game, iFruit cellphone and upload the images to their Snapmatic profile. Then, after logging into RockStar's Social Club website, simply adding the hashtag #EpicPhotobomb to the pictures' description will complete the entry.

After November 4th, Rockstar will select five pictures and send the lucky winners a Grand Theft Auto V prize pack. The package includes an iFruit phone case, an official Grand Theft Auto V t-shirt, and a Chop stuffed animal.

Rockstar promises to reward creativity, and, like most of the activities in Grand Theft Auto, pants are optional.

Yet, instead of focusing on more important things, we get a photobomb contest.

Really makes me want to make a crew with Fuck You R* as the emblem and spam the hell out of it.

Maybe when hiests are finally released I'll go back to GTAO, but right now you get punished for playing.

Wow, chill out. Holy crap. Rockstar Marketing and Rockstar Developing are almost certainly two completely different groups of people, and while developing works on the game, marketing works on this kind of stuff.

Relax. Seriously.

It's GTA. This is going to be entertaining.
