The weather outside is frightful, but your snaps are so delightful. We want to see the best of your winter pics for the chance to win a Sony Xperia XZ, just in time for Christmas…

Twinkling lights, festive markets and glistening ice rinks. The beauty of winter is hard to beat, but easy to capture. To prove it, we want to see your best winter shots as part of our new #WinterWows prize draw, and in return we’ll be giving three budding mobile photographers a brand-new Sony Xperia ZX smartphone just in time for Christmas.

Think you’ve got our Christmas prize draw all wrapped-up? Read on, grab your smartphone and get snapping. But hurry! You’ve only got one day to enter


Our Vodafone elves have been working hard all year to help your Instagrams, tweets, snaps, and Facebook posts hit the web from wherever you might be. In fact, we were recently named ‘London’s #1 Network’’ by independent testers P3 Connect – and we think that’s worth a celebration.

To help spread the word (and a bit of Christmas cheer) we recently equipped three of Instagram’s best photographers with Sony Xperia XZ smartphones and sent them out to catch the low-light magic at some of London’s most iconic winter locations.

Conor MacNeill (@thefella), Phillipa Stanton (@5ftinf) and Zoe Timmers (@zobolondon) put the Xperia XZ’s through its paces, and the results – as you can probably see – are simply stunning…

Impressive, huh? But we know they’re not the only ones making the most of winter when it comes to photography. So now it’s over to you: from winter eats to winter streets, festivities and lights, we want to see your stuff!

It’s really easy to enter. Simply upload your winter-themed photography to Twitter or Instagram making sure you include @VodafoneUK and the hashtag #WinterWows in the caption, and you’re well on your way to winning a Sony Xperia XZ. But this is a one day-only extravaganza, so you need to get your entries in today!

Our #WinterWows prize draw is only open from 8am ‘til 4pm today (Monday 19 December 2016). Three winners will be selected at random from all the posts, and phones will be sent in time for Christmas.

You’ll find the full T&Cs at the bottom of this post and we’ll be keeping you posted with all entries right here so go on, make it snappy.
