Summer Photo Scavenger Hunt



Dog Days Of Summer Photo Scavenger Hunt

V7N Photo Challenge August 1 – August 31, 2012
You have 31 days to complete this scavenger hunt. The speed that you post your entries is not vital. You can take a picture every other day, or spend a full day finding all of them. It is vital though that YOU are the one who takes every picture.

  1. Fitness
  2. Face
  3. Old
  4. Transportation
  5. Still
  6. Movement
  7. Window
  8. Art
  9. Road
  10. Drink
  11. Food
  12. Health
  13. Culture
  14. Eyes
  15. Hands
  16. Community
  17. Shapes
  18. Water
  19. Wall
  20. Random

You cannot use one of your old pictures. Every picture needs to be a new one that you have taken during this 31 days challenge.

The more creative you are with this, the more fun it will be. As always, you are in full control of your interpretation of the items on the scavenger hunt list.

Getting Started With The Scavenger Hunt

First, make it known that you intend to participate in the challenge by adding your name and the URL of the folder where you will be placing all of your images for this challenge as a reply to this post here on the blog. This is a must to qualify so that I can keep track of the participants!

During The Photo Scavenger Hunt

Post your images to the location of your choice, such as your personal blog, or a service such as Picasa Web Albums or Flickr or even Facebook if you would like.

Make sure you post each image for the challenge to our I Love Photography group over on Facebook.

It will give you more exposure for your images and help us follow your progress if you notify us of the location (link) and thumbnail of each new submission the challenge over on the V7N too but it is not a requirement. If you are not a Facebook user posting each picture to the V7N thread will replace the requirement for posting the images (or links to them) in the I Love Photography group.

The order that you complete the challenge is not important, just let us know which theme the submitted picture applies to.

Are There Prizes For Participating?

At the end of the scavenger hunt we will do a random drawing of all members who completed the challenge. The 1st name drawn will receive a $100 Amazon Gift Certificate. The next 5 names drawn will receive a free V7N Directory submission. Finally, I will be featuring 5  of the best photographs (with linked photography credit) here on the V7N Technology blog. How cool is that! Talk about exposure for you!

Added Notes

It is not important if you are just getting started with photography or if you are a seasoned professional. We also don’t care if you use a point and shoot camera, your cell phone, or DSLR. What matters is just getting out there and shooting the world around you. Use your imagination and just have fun!
