After much time pondering the idea, figured it was finally time to launch the "FlickrHunt" blog and game.
- I post weekly clues (items and themes).
- Participants try to 'solve' the clues via a camera and post to Flickr.
- Each participant has 1 week to solve the list & submit photos.
- All photos are tagged "flickrhunt"; links are left as comments on the original list post.
- Judges (me and rotating guest judges) verify # of successful items completed by each participant and suggest 'winning' photos (photographic vision, creativity, inspiration, wackiness, etc.).
- A new set of clues is added the following week or so.
- Participants are put in a 'league' and weekly points are tallied. Sort of like a fantasy baseball league, if you will.
- Quarterly winners are announced.
- Perhaps wacky prizes are awarded. At least a sidebar widget/badge is created so winners can post on their blogs.
Well, check out the official rules and the 10 beta test clues for this week (due by midnight EST, Friday, June 27th).
And if anyone wants to be a guest judge, please let me know!
