Rockstar Games is once again holding another photo contest inside Grand Theft Auto V in which they are asking fans to use the in-game iFruit phone to capture the best possible photo featuring the Cargobob helicopter. The developer announced the new snapmatic photo contest on April 24 which is now officially accepting photo submissions until the end of the day this coming Monday.

To enter, gamers need to only snap the best photograph of a Cargobob in action using their iFruit phone either from the single player campaign or within GTA Online. Players then need to upload the picture to the Rockstar Social Club website and had the hashtag “#ThanksCargobob” to the photo in order for it to be considered.

All photo entry between now and April 28 will later be review by Rockstar Games who will later select a winner to receive a prize package. The top five entries, as decided by the developer, will win 1 million GTA$ to use inside GTA Online in addition to a number of real world prizes. This will include a Grand Theft Auto V branded t-shirt, hoodie, trucker cap, and a USB drive.

For those unfamiliar with the helicopter, the Cargobob is the military aircraft inside Grand Theft Auto V which comes equipped with a crane that allows it to life up many of the game’s wheeled vehicles. Given the open-world nature of the title, gamers can understand the seemingly endless applications that the Cargobob has. This is especially true within GTA Online, were several players can pilot a Cargobob simultaneously.

Available now on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, Grand Theft Auto V puts players in control of three switchable protagonists as they plan a series of heist robbers across the fictional stat of San Andreas. Players can also create their own character within GTA Online which allows fans to play alongside other gamers.
