Rockstar Games has asked players to send in original photobombed pictures taken in Grand Theft Auto V with the in-game Snapmatic camera.

"For all you compulsive shutterbugs out there, 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," said the developer on the Rockstar Games site.

"Whether it be a unexpectedly volatile pedestrian coming to clobber you, a scantily clad Trevor running amok in the middle of your self-satisfied selfie or a rival player causing an explosive disturbance while you calmly attempt to snap your sweet Los Santos Custom-ized hot rod--we’ll pick out five of our favorite awesomely amusing and artfully composed iFruit camera pics that fit the bill."

Rockstar adds that it will give the five winning photographers a prize pack that includes a cuddly toy version of Franklin's dog Chop.

In order to be eligible for the competition, players are required to tag their entries with the hashtag #EpicPhotoBomb through Rockstar's Snapmatic site.

Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two has now shipped 29 million copies of Grand Theft Auto V to retailers.
