The automotive brand is using the hashtag #YourTurnBritain to drive interest in the F-Type model, a two-seater sports car, with content promoted through Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and its Tumblr channel.

The best posts using the #YourTurnBritain hashtag will be entered to win weekly prizes, as well as four "money can’t buy" F-Type lifestyle experiences.

As part of the campaign, by We Are Social and The Brooklyn Brothers, Jaguar brand ambassadors including England cricketers Graeme Swann and Jimmy Anderson, actor Jamie Campbell-Bower and designer Alice Temperley have been filmed giving an insight into their view of modern Britain.

The campaign will also be incorporated into above-the-line activity.

Ken Forbes, Jaguar’s UK marketing director, said: "#YourTurnBritain is an opportunity to celebrate all things British, iconic and of the moment, which is how we consider the F-Type – a symbol of great British success. We are delighted with the campaign and wish everyone who participates in the #YourTurnBritain contest the very best of luck."
