Snap-happy Dumbarton residents could bag £1,000 for their most ‘Instagrammable’ shots of the local area.

National Rail is hunting for the nation’s most ‘Instagrammable’ locations for its 16-25 Railcard, after revealing that almost one in three young people choose their travel destinations based on how good they will look on their social media feeds.

The research showed that young people in Dumbarton are constantly on the lookout for the best selfie spots and will upload an average of 12 photos to Instagram every week.

The brand is now calling for local social media fanatics to submit their best photos for the chance to win a £1,000 cash prize.

The winning snap will also feature in a 16-25 Railcard campaign, as well as appearing on its website and social media channels.

Jyoti Bird, marketing director at National Rail, said: “We look forward to seeing some really beautiful and creative photography from local social media enthusiasts, and will hopefully be crowning Dumbarton as the Instagram capital of the UK!”

For the chance to win £1,000 and the title of Dumbarton’s best Instagrammer, upload an image to Instagram, tagging @national.rail and using the hashtag #instarail, or on the National Rail Facebook page, using #instarail.
