Motorola wants you to take a selfie with the Moto X so you can win a $3,000 vacation (US only)

Motorola just kicked off a contest on Instagram, planning to offer a lucky winner a $3,000 vacation. Dubbed #MotoPhotoBomb, the contest asks you to go into a Verizon Wireless store, and take a selfie holding up a Moto X (second generation) - not your Moto X, but any unit that’s on display at Verizon. After that, you must post the image on Instagram using the hashtag #MotoPhotoBomb.

The contest is open to all legal residents of the US age 18 or over, and ends on January 22. To enter, you must first follow Motorola on Instragram. Unlike in other contests, the winner won’t be selected randomly. Instead, Motorola will choose the winning entry based on the “quality of photo (50%) and composition (50%)”. As for the final prize, this includes a $1,500 Delta Air Lines eGift Card, two $500 Hilton HHonors gift cards, and a $500 Visa gift card. More details about the contest, including the official rules, are available at the source links below.

Released by Verizon in September last year, the new Moto X was updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop not long after that. Verizon is currently offering the Moto X for free on contract. If you haven’t done it yet, you should read our Moto X review to find out more about the handset.

P.S.: The selfie seen above is from Motorola.
