PHOTO Scavenger Hunt

Do you like scavenger hunts? Do you like taking photos? Then we have the contest for you! 

Join us during the Festival for our Scavenger Hunt Photo Contest which will be held on Instagram. Find and take a photo of any number of scavenger hunt items to be found at Arts Rising Festival Penticton that will be provided on our website and Facebook page on September 21, 2017, then enter by posting your photo to your Instagram account, tag @artsrising and enter the hashtags we’ll provide you with, by noon on Sunday, September 24th. Find as many scavenger hunt items as you can, however, you’re only allowed to enter one photo per scavenger hunt item. First prize will be judged based on composition, content/originality/technical quality & visual impact and is valued at $50. Runner-up prize is judged based on the highest number of eligible scavenger hunt items entered and is valued at $35.

The Contest is open to Canadian residents (excluding residents of Quebec) who are at least 13 years of any age, are not professional photographers and who have an Instagram account in good standing as of the date of entry into the Contest and through the time of prize award.
