If you've snapped a decent picture of one of the 60+ South African municipalities we serve - send it to, with your municipality's name as the subject. We'd also love to get a small story around the circumstances in which you captured your City's energy.

If we like your shot, we'll showcase it on our homepage and we'll load your PAYGENIUS wallet with 100 rands that you can spend on buying electricity or airtime, pay bills and much more.

Please only submit pictures that you've taken yourself, and be aware that by submitting your shot to us we might use a blurred out version on our homepage and feature your City in all its glory on our blog and social media accounts. We'll send you an email to let you know what we think and what extra details we might require to best feature you.
