Houston Photo Scavenger Hunt

Saturday, April 4, 2020. 

RULES

This is a greater Houston scavenger hunt. The purpose is to locate some of Houston’s most iconic graffiti art and locations. Teams will be judged on how fast they successfully complete all the challenges. Each team will be given a list of places (challenges) with hints and clues of where they are located. Some will be easy and some hard. The list will not be released until the morning of the competition, so there will not be any prepping beforehand.

There will be 22 locations ranging from Galveston to the Heights and everywhere in between.

Those who sign up will required to meet at the Gilruth Center the morning of the event. The event coordinator will go over the rules and explain how to submit photos.

To complete a challenge, the entire team must take a selfie in front of the object and upload it on Flickr. Once your team has done this, move on to the next challenge. If the picture is wrong, then that challenge will not be accepted.

There will be a 4 hour time limit starting when the event coordinator has gone over all the rules and releases everyone. Those that successfully complete the most challenges in that time will win.

STRATEGY

Teams must come up with their own strategy. Where should we go first? What should our route be? It’s up to you. The list of challenges may or may not be in order, so having a solid game plan is critical.

TEAMS

Teams can be comprised of 1-3 people. Teams can only work with one vehicle. You may not split up in two vehicles. All team members must ride together. Collaboration amongst opposing teams is not allowed. All ages may participate.

PHOTOS

To complete a challenge, the entire teams must take a selfie in front of the object and upload it to Flickr. The team who successfully completes all the challenges first will win. Photos uploaded to Flickr will have a time stamp, so the event coordinator will know the time of the last photo submitted. Directions on how to use Flickr will be discussed at the rules meeting.

HOW TO WIN

The team who successfully completes all the challenges in the fastest time will win. Each challenge will not be complete until an entire team selfie has been taken in front of the object and then uploaded onto Flickr. If a picture was taken at the wrong location, that challenge will not count.

Remember, there will be a 4 hour time limit starting when the event coordinator has gone over all the rules and releases everyone. Those that successfully complete the most challenges in that time will win.

The top three teams will receive awards.

1st Place Team– Team trophy plus each member will receive a $25 Amazon gift card to make their own photo book!

2nd Place Team – team trophy

3rd Place Team – team trophy
