Scavenger Hunts

Hunts are designed to encourage our members to shoot images while maintaining social distancing during the time of global pandemics - hunt by yourself on your own time - don’t let COVID-19 make you a couch potato!

The Rules of the Game:

Submitting Your Images

  • Images per Maker: Players in the Hunt may submit one photo for each image category.
  • What About Geography? Images can be taken anywhere provided both of your feet are in the territorial Lower 48 United States.

Judging Criteria

  • Titles are required, but they needn't be fully descriptive. Note that camera generated file names are not allowable as titles.
  • Perspective and innovation counts! Thinking outside-the-box may distinguish your image vis-a-vis other images.
  • Post processing guidelines for the Hunt are the same as those we apply to Travel and Journalism images: Techniques that add to, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by cropping are not permitted. All adjustments must appear natural. Conversion to monochrome is allowed.

Game Scoring:

  • The Hunt will have winners for each Category as well as overall Winner.
  • Category Winners: Each image category will have two winners - first place is awarded 5 points and second is awarded 3 points.
  • The Winner will be awarded to the player with the most points.

We hope you have a great time with your scavenger hunt! And remember.... no chickens on bicycles!
