VOLKSWAGEN IRELAND, IN collaboration with The Snapys, has launched the Volkswagen Snapshot Competition 2018.

Now in its second year, the 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, Road Trip, Technology and Volkswagen.

Prizes include a trip to Barcelona, an escape to Finn Lough to stay in a bubble dome, drones and photography lighting equipment.

Twelve of the photographs will be selected to make the 2019 Volkswagen Snapshot calendar. Last year’s Snapshot calendar raised €3,000 for Pieta House. This year, the money raised from the sales of the calendar will be donated to Focus Ireland, a charity that works with people who are homeless or are at risk of losing their homes across Ireland.

Sinead Price, Co-Director of Fundraising and Marketing for Focus Ireland commented:

The support of Volkswagen Ireland will mean Focus Ireland can prevent more families from falling into homelessness in the first place, and help to ensure that others already impacted can with the backing of Volkswagen Ireland, exit homelessness.

For a full list of details and categories, visit VWsnapshot.ie or see Volkswagen Ireland’s page on Instagram.
