Scavenger Hunt

August 30, 2010

Full PDF List:  Scavenger Hunt

Photo Society will be hosting a photo scavenger hunt as our first semester activity. We will be dividing everyone into groups of four, some new students and some older students, so everyone can meet new people and learn from each other! The list of dares has over 400 options to choose from, each having different point values. Your group may pick and choose which photos to take. The deadline for submissions is Sept 13th @ 10pm via Flickr group: Please name your pictures correctly and upload the entire groups at once and submit them so they will be together. We will total your points after the deadline. If you would like to total your points there is an excel sheet you can fill out, it will self total at the bottom for you! It is on UCM server> gatm > phot > photo society > Fun Stuff > scavenger hunt totals.xslm, you may save a copy as “scavenger hunt totals_group#.xslm”


  1. If your image is not named and numbered correctly, it will be disqualified.
  2. If the Photo Society Officers decides your image does not match the description, it will be disqualified.
  3. If any team member appears naked, endangers themselves/others, destroys property, or commits a crime the WHOLE TEAM will be disqualified!
  4. Entire Team means your ENTIRE TEAM. You WILL require a fifth party to get all four of you in one single frame. Complete strangers are often really helpful in this regard.
  5. Person, Place or Thing. Means ACTUAL item, you may NOT take a photo of a photo of a mullet, nor may you find the image online and pretend that you took the pic.
  6. Someone can be ANYONE a friend, relative, a teammate, a roommate, a stranger, a cop, a waitress, we don’t care; we just want that action immortalized digitally.
  7. Stranger means someone you DO NOT KNOW and once they’ve taken a shot with you, they are now family, EVERY Stranger picture will require someone NEW.
  8. Teammate means one of the four people signed up on the team, one of the four folks who are on your team and appear in every single Entire Team picture.
  9. Each picture may count only for one item a shot of a deer in headlight giving birth is worth only deer in headlights or something giving birth NOT BOTH.
  10. Number your photos. If we cannot figure out what your picture is, we will not count it. 
  11. NEVER EVER do anything dangerous, illegal, or damage property! We do not want you hurt in any way. If you do not like a dare, don’t do it! Move to a different number! You are NOT REQUIRED to do them ALL, just the ones you want. This is supposed to be for fun.
  12. Team with the most points wins!    Submit images labeled: Team # _ # of dare    ex] Team3_405          
    (Make sure they are all numbered the same way and uploaded together so they show up together.)
