SNAP UP AN iPAD WITH CITROEN RETAIL GROUP
Citroën owners are invited to get creative with their cameras for an online competition organised by the Citroën Retail Group, Citroën’s largest dealer group. http://www.facebook.com/citroenretailgroup .
Citroën recently unveiled a number of dynamic and exciting new models such as the DS3 and C4 and are about to launch the DS4, the most beautiful car of the year, as awarded at the 26th Festival Automobile International.
To underline their heritage of ‘creative technologie’ the group has launched a fun Facebook competition where owners can post photos of their own Citroën to win the latest iPad2. The newly launched, must-have gadget is slimmer and faster and now includes video and Photobooth.
The Citroën Retail Group sells over 25,000 cars every year through its network of 12 dealers throughout the UK. Buying a car is an emotive purchase according to the Group’s Sales Director, Jon Williams.
“Playing such an important role in our day to day lives it’s no wonder that our cars seem to take on their own persona. Many people give their car or van a name for fun and it’s this individuality and creativeness that we would like people to capture in owners’ photographs,” he said
“Every car has a story to tell and the more creative the picture, the better the chances of winning.
“Our new Facebook page has created a Citroën community where owners can share, chat and keep up to date with the latest news and offers.”
Citroën owners everywhere have already started to take up on the fun challenge, posting pictures of their ‘sexy Saxos and ‘burly Berlingos’.
The gallery of entrants also shows vintage and new models photographed in a variety of locations including the seaside, a mountain top and even one on the moon!
To enter the competition, Facebook users should ‘like’ the Citroën Retail Group page, which will allow owners to upload a photograph of their beloved car or van. Pictures can be submitted until the end of June and the winner will be notified by 5th July 2011.
