Welcome to Handfulofrubies's First Annual Halloween Photo Scavenger Hunt. I know all of you are into Halloween, and who doesn't like a little friendly competition?
What's the prize you say?
The winner will be receiving a
$20Visa Giftcard
Here is what you have to do: Review the scavenger hunt lists below and follow the directions given for each level.
How will we know who won?
Participants will be judged on a point system. Per the instructions, each photo within a level is worth a set number of points. The person with the most points at the end wins. If there should be a tie, a tie breaker challenge will be presented.
I've created a Group Photo Album at Photobucket.com
If you don't have an account, one can be created for free. Sign up, create an album. I've created a group album for you to upload your photos to. The group can be searched, or found at www.photobucket.com/HandfulofrubiesPhotoChallenge
The password is Frightseekers
You will be uploading your photos to a "group" album. You can add all of your photos at once (helpful), or as you go through the competition. I need you to tag all your photos with your Frightseeker screen name, in case any of them get out of order. You also need to tag each photo with the corresponding level, and number. Ex: Easy1, Medium1, Hard1
Due to the large number of photos, they will not be judged on creativity, however creativity is highly appreciated!! Please make sure I can see all the objects you're trying to show in your photo. Remember, photos indoor, however light and bright you think they are, will probably need flash. If I can't see the item, you don't get the points. For some of these photos a tripod might have to be used. Self-timer is your friend if you can't bring a friend along. If you need clarification on any photo, or the instructions, ask questions.
The contest will begin September 1st. All submissions must be posted to the group album by Oct. 31st. I will announce the prize winner on November 7th, 2011.
All registered Frightseekers who have introduced themselves in the New Members Welcome area will be allowed to participate. Handfulofrubies will not be participating for a prize, but may submit photos to provide examples as the competition proceeds.
I encourage everyone to go out and have fun. Handfulofrubies will not be held liable for your actions pertaining to attaining these photos, nor NCHaunts/Frightseekers. Be smart. Be careful. Don't trespass. If you attempt the Myers House photo, please go to his website and make arrangements with him. Please don't just show up on his doorstep. Represent Frightseekers well!


***I'm making an amendment to the contest. To qualify for the prize, you'll need to accumulate at least 40 points. I want people to participate.  So far there aren't any entries, and I don't find it fair to award someone a prize for submitting one photo at the last minute. You guys still have a little over 3 weeks.

Thanks, I tried to come up with some fun ones! And, I may add a few if I think of some more clever ones. I hope everyone has fun with it. I can't wait to see the submissions. I'm going to be posting a few of my own pics for examples in over the next couple of weeks. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask away.

Alright I want to throw down the gauntlet here.....who wants to take part in this cool (and very gracious) contest?  Doubt I can hit 40 points but it'd be a shame to ignore this.  Who's in?
