Photo Scavenger Hunt Information


Below is the information you’ll need for the scavenger hunt.  You can also view the information via this PDF file.


Thanks for participating in our photo scavenger hunt.  The deadline to submit an entry is May 31 at 9pm.  Late submissions will not be accepted.  Prize winners will be announced no later than June 5.  The following rules, tips, and guidelines will help you along the way.  If you have any questions along the way send an email to [email protected].

  1. Only one (1) entry per person. Photos may not be used for more than one entry.
  2. We’re looking for photos of specific items. If you submit a photo at the correct location but an incorrect item it will not be counted toward your completed items found.
  3. If you utilize Twitter you can use #LFLScavengerHunt when you’re out and about having fun.
  4. Once you are ready to submit your photos create a Flickr account if you do not already have one. Create an album titled Lowell’s First Look Scavenger Hunt and place all of your entries in the album.  Numbering them to correspond with the location clue is not required but it will be helpful as we verify entries. You can also make a Facebook photo album titled Lowell’s First Look Scavenger Hunt. Make sure to change the privacy settings to public and then tag Lowell’s First Look in it so we can find it.
  5. The grand prize winner will be the person who submits the greatest number of correct photos. If more than one person collects the greatest number one person will be randomly selected from winning entries.  Other prizes will be raffled off by selecting random names from all entries.  One prize per person.
