From the darkened corners of clubland, underground partygoers have been busy documenting the highs of club life in the #AFTERHOURS Snapmatic Event. From staging immaculately-lit shots of new vehicles tripping the light fantastic on the dance floor, these talented photogs – including 4 first time Snapmatic contest winners along with returning champion Six-Face – will each be taking home a GTA$5,000,000 reward for their hard work:

A dance music paradise: The geometric shapes of Braydenator73's Lightning Storm rig prime the crowd as Solomun prepares the drop.
"Del Perro Beach" by Six-Face
Spreading the good word down at Del Perro Pier, Six-Face lets beach-goers know that Galaxy is open for business during a Nightclub Promotion mission.
"Dancing the Night Away" by swift_22
Attracting attention on the dance floor, Sand im Schritt Commissioner swift_22 schools the crowd by way of the "Getting Down" dance style.

"The Life of the Party" by MS_LOC: Party-goers show off a full spectrum of dance moves against a brilliant backdrop in this clever silhouette.
"Disco," by Lotus_0506: A goggled raver bathes in pink light while Solomun spins from the glowing DJ booth.

It's time to celebrate the heroes of Southern San Andreas who risked life and limb to protect the LS way of life. The courageous misfits who stormed missile bases, sabotaged submarines and shot Cargo Planes out of the sky with the kind of reckless abandon that would make Solomon Richards proud. After reviewing each and every eligible entry, we're proud to present the very best from the #DOOMSDAY Rockstar Editor Contest.
Congratulations are in order for our grand prize winner .GHOST.RIDER., who will soon be in possession of the coveted Rockstar Editor Trophy, customized Director's Chair and the GTAV Varsity Jacket, complete with customized Director's Patch, thanks to his entry "#DOOMSDAY."
#DOOMSDAY by .GHOST.RIDER.
Set to the rumbling drums of the trap hit "Work" by Young Scooter & Gucci Mane, Ghost floats the camera through the scene and slips through shadows picking off guards before storming the Server Farm in Act I of The Doomsday Heist. Alternating between high contrast colorful images and first-person night vision footage (achieved with the Game Over Man filter), Ghost brings the audience in close for a front-row seat to this thrilling Doomsday Heist showpiece.
Congrats to our two runners up, each of whom will receive a $100 Rockstar Warehouse Gift Card as well as a deluxe GTAV prize pack of collectible items.
The Doomsday Scenario by KILL3RWAFFL3Z
Minute long single takes, sophisticated use of match-cut transitions and elegant dolly movements highlight KILL3RWAFFL3Z's mastery of cinematic language in his contest entry "The Doomsday Scenario." After setting the scene with an explosive opening, KILL3RWAFFL3Z winds back the clock to tell the story of how a crack team of misfits saved the state of San Andreas. Keep an eye out at the 2-minute mark for some brilliant over-the-shoulder camerawork during a tense apartment raid on the ULP Intel Prep Mission.
Feel the same by FallenDutch
Step inside a hailstorm of bullets and shrapnel in this pulse-pounding entry from FallenDutch. From stealthy shootouts in server facilities to underwater excursions in a mine-clustered ocean, Dutch puts the viewer in the center of the Doomsday Heists action.

TRYING ANYWAY by Give-Me-Liberty
In his first ever Rockstar Editor Contest entry, Give-Me-Liberty delivers a rollicking and action-packed lesson in how to smuggle in style. "Answer to Yourself" by The Softpack provides the perfect soundtrack as Liberty's squad smashes through Source and Sell Missions across the state, expertly piloting virtually every aircraft from the Smuggler's Run update — from the Alpha-Z1 to the Tula to Seabreeze — racking up cargo and laying waste to anyone foolish enough to try and share airspace.
RED IS DEAD by laurent.do
A veteran creator from both the Rockstar Editor and Snapmatic scenes, laurent.do delivers the goods once again with the vintage stylized "RED IS DEAD". The Racing Club co-Lieutenant's cinematic talents shine through with some gorgeous framing and excellent use of the Rockstar Editor's filters. Echoing vibes of the granddaddy of film contest champions, 1927's dogfight drama and first ever Best Picture winner "Wings" - a badass heroine pilot in the mold of Amelia Earhart vibe takes to the skies in Stockpile mode scoring some epic aerial takedowns.
DREAMSCAPE by Venzee
The Vainglorious member Venzee rises to the occasion with this sentimental story-driven entry about a Grapeseed farmer who realizes his dream of becoming a pilot. After proving he's got the stones to stunt in the Howard NX-25, Venzee heads back to the training room before revealing his full fleet at Fort Zancudo. As a bonus, Venzee is all about the details, providing a thorough backstory you can read here.
