Poetry Contest: Scavenger Hunt Contest
Scavenger Hunt Contest Results
Grand prize: DC$ 30
The rules were given as the following:
This contest is a scavenger hunt, no writing involved...okay maybe a little.
It is point based, the person with the most collective points in the end wins 30 ducats. There are also secondary prizes for most creative and funniest photos. The sponsors of the contest will also be given 50 points to distribute in increments of 5 to any photo they like in particular, for whatever reasons. Sponsors are allowed to participate so those points cannot be awarded to themselves.
Your pictures must be uploaded to a photo site, such as photobucket.com, not Facebook. You must upload them all into a single album and label each photo with the contest goal it is completing. Then you must post the link on dark poetry, the title must be your screen name and scavenger hunt, example "Jades Scavenger Hunt", you then enter the post into the contest.
The rules are fairly simple and are as fallows:
All pictures must be original.
No Photoshop and no stealing pictures off the internet. We will be checking for authenticity and if we find its stolen you are disqualified completely. If we believe any picture is otherwise unauthentic, meaning it didn't fallow the rules in any way we may disqualify the single picture. This is somewhat a game of honesty, we are trusting you to be good sports and try to earn a win...not steal one.
Any pictures that require you to have a strangers face in the shot must have permission by that individual.
You don't have to complete them all, just as many as possible.
If you have questions about any of the rules or anything else feel free to dpmail me.
