Niantic is giving away a Pokéstop as a prize in their new #GOsnapshot challenge for the hit mobile game Pokémon GO. If that's not enough, they are also giving away a ticket and trip to a Pokémon GO Fest as grand prize.
I think the chance to actually be part of the game is a real motivator for trainers to join. Count me in!
Via Press Release:
Niantic is excited to announce the #GOsnapshot Challenge for
Pokémon GO, inviting Trainers to put their photography and creative skills to the test! Trainers will be able to participate in three unique challenges of the contest, each with a specific focus and task for taking photos with your Pokémon, including:

This challenge will focus on photos that highlight the connection between Trainers and their Buddy Pokémon.

For the Habitat Challenge, Trainers must take the best photos of
Pokémon in their natural habitat.
Adventure #3: Go Create Challenge

In the Go Create Challenge, Trainers must show how innovative they can get with GO Snapshot.
What to Do: Post your top three entries on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtags #GOsnapshot and #GoCreateChallenge.
The grand-prize winner and two runners-up for each challenge will be selected based on the originality, creativity, and visual fun of their snapshots.

Each runner-up will win a special PokéStop featuring their winning photo that will remain no less than three months!
The grand-prize winner for each challenge will receive this special PokéStop and be whisked away with travel and tickets to a 2019 Pokémon GO Fest of their choice!
