Welcome to our first ever Scavenger Hunt :-)

The aim of our Scavenger Hunt is to have FUN!!!
This competition is for EVERYONE and is NOT only geared towards photographers.  The prizes will NOT be awarded on skill level.
If you participate and comply with the rules and requirements then your name will go into the prize pool :-)
Winners will be drawn randomly from the prize pool.

How to play :-)

1)  Copy and print out the list of items to find.

2)  Make a sign that says "Cambags Scavenger Hunt 2013" either written or on computer.

3)  When you find an item on the list, photograph it with the sign you made in the image.  Photo's can be taken with any camera or mobile phone.

4)  Load your images into an online gallery.  Photobucket, flickr are a couple you can use or you can create a Facebook album with your images - just make sure you make it public so we can view your images.

5)  Once you have photographed 50 or more items on the list, and loaded all images into your gallery, come back to this post and leave a comment with your full name, how many images you took and a link to your gallery.

The Rules :-) 

1)  Please note that the competition is only available for people residing in Australian and New Zealand.

2)  YOU must either take the image or be in the image

3)  The sign "Cambags Scavenger Hunt 2013" must be visible in each image.

4)  You may NOT add the sign in photoshop or any other photo editing software.

5)  Each item on the list must be taken as an individual photo.  You cannot combine items into one image.

6)  Your gallery must contain a minimum of 50 items on the list to qualify for the prize pool.  You are of course welcome to include more :-)

7)  All galleries must be submitted (by comment on this post) by Wednesday 28th August and winners will be announced on Sunday 1st September.

8)  Please ensure you visit our prize sponsors Facebook pages and give them a like.  We will verify that all pages have been liked once winners have been drawn.
