They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but thanks to Schneider’s new contest, your picture could be worth $500. Schneider Snapshots is an amateur photography contest launched by the trucking company with the hopes of encouraging people to spot and snap pictures of its iconic equipment.
“The most popular photos on Schneider’s social media sites are the ones that are sent to us by professional drivers and the motoring public, capturing those special moments when a Schneider National truck passes through another North American town,” said Mike Norder, a spokesperson for Schneider. “We thought a contest like this would be the perfect way to celebrate our fans’ passion for photography, scenic beauty and Schneider equipment!”
Anyone over the age of 18 with a Facebook account is invited to enter the contest. Contest rules are simple. Because of Schneider’s commitment to safety, photos entered in the contest cannot have been taken while operating a moving vehicle. In order to be eligible to win, photos must include a Schneider truck or trailer, without any people or customer logos. Individuals are invited to enter once daily, but each submission must be a different photo.
After photos are submitted, Schneider will ask the public to help them pick a winner. From June 2-19, those interested in helping pick the winning image can vote once a day for their favorite picture at www.schneiderjobs.com/contest. (There is no age requirement for voting, but you must have a valid Facebook account in order to cast your vote.)
After all the votes are counted, the winner will be announced on June 29. The winning photographer will be presented with a $500 Visa debit card and feature his or her photo on the homepage Schneider’s recruiting website. Additionally, the company will use the winning photo in a number of ways all across the site.
The company has high hopes for Schneider Snapshots after the success of a previous photo contest, October Orangeout, that the trucking company held on Instagram last year. 130 photos were submitted during that contest, and Schneider anticipates even more submissions this time around.
