IPD : Photo Contest 2022




Our team at IPD sifted through all the entries for the 2022 Photo Contest.   It was extremely hard narrowing the field down to a select few.  Trust us, the decisions were not easy!  We appreciate everyone who participated in sending us an image of their incredible Volvo.  But now it’s time for you to make the final vote.  Voting has begun for you to choose your favorite image for each category.  Voting will end on Thursday July 21st.  The winners will be announced on Friday July 22nd.    We look forward to seeing all the entries next year!  Thank you for your support. 

Welcome to IPD Volvo's 2022 Photo Contest!

It's time for our annual photo contest! This is one of IPD's most popular events, and for good reason! Who doesn’t like to show off their beloved and trusty Swedish Steel? Whether it be a daily driver or a concourse beauty queen, we hope you dig into the closet, dust off the old polaroid and take some quality shots of your pride and joy to share with the world.
If you can win the vote of the Volvo Community you may win a $100 IPD Gift Card!

We will follow a similar format as last year where we have 7 categories with one winner in each. While we'd love to see where you've taken your Volvo, we'd also love to see those gorgeous beauty and rolling shots as well. Be assured that winners will not be selected based on where the shots were taken but rather the overall quality, composition and interest of the photos as we have in the past.

We have heard your previous critiques on the images we chose and have built a new team here at IPD to go through all the entries provided and do a thorough picking process for finalists, with all of your issues and concerns in mind! The astute staff here at IPD will narrow down the entries to the finalists and we will again bring the final vote to the people for the winners of each category.
If you can get the stamp of approval from your fellow Volvo lovers then you may be a winner.

Good luck!

Please note, quality and composition matter most for winning.

Photo Winning Tips

- Be creative.

- Make the focal point of the photo be the Volvo and not the mountains or scenery behind it.

- Do not take pictures of your car in your driveway after you just finished washing it.

- No low quality phone pictures.

- Avoid other car makes being in the photo. It's a bit tacky to have a photo of your 850 with a Ford Explorer sitting right next to it.

- Resolution! Make your photos large enough for us to use in publications.

- Other than that, have fun and again, be creative. Good luck!
