Would you like to be rewarded for your snaps of the things you love? Read on to find out how...
By Virgin Media
Here at Virgin Media, we want to celebrate what you’re really passionate about by capturing authentic images of you in your own surroundings. We’ll then use these photographs in our marketing (instead of faking it with models or going for cringy stock photos).
Tell us all about what you love – whether it’s painting beautiful pieces of art and sharing them on social media, showing off your exotic houseplants on your group chats or recording music and sharing it with your fans online. And if Virgin Media’s products and services have helped you do what you love most, even better.
We’ll pick a few of our favourite stories and, if you’re one of them, we’ll send over our art directors and multi-award-winning photographer, Tom Oldham, to capture you in your own space. All while following social-distancing guidelines, of course.
As a thank you, we’ll give you an original portrait of you and your household and a £50 lifestyle voucher to enjoy.
Interested? Then all you have to do is send an email to CreativeReview@virginmedia.co.uk with the following details...
