CLEVELAND, Oh. – If you like to take photos and love to post on social media Web sites, Alcoa Wheels has the contest for you.

Starting today and ending September 15, 2014, Alcoa Wheels is launching its first social media photo sharing contest where social media followers of the company on Twitter (@AlcoaWheels) and Instagram (@AlcoaWheels) can submit photos of trucks fitted with Alcoa wheels and win merchandise supplied by the company.

Alcoa says the photos must comply with the terms of service of Twitter and Instagram and must use the hashtag #AlcoaWheels. By posting the photo and the hashtag on either media outlet with the tag, participants will automatically be entered into the contest.

Those who are not on either social media site can e-mail photos directly to

“We have found that our fans and followers love to show us their Alcoa wheels,” said Brian Thomas, Alcoa Wheels’ marketing communications manager. “Most often, when they share these photos, it’s an indication of their high level of pride for their wheels, their trucks and their lifestyles. We want this campaign to reflect the love and passion that drivers, stakeholders and fleets have for their trucks.”

The contest will close in mid-September and will include theme weeks to keep the contest fresh and exciting.
