Jiri Kepka, the winner of the 360 Cities Gigapixel Treasure Hunt, has received the well deserved $1000 from us.
After announcing the winner two weeks ago, we’ve exchanged a couple of emails with Jiri. About a week ago we asked him to send us a new photo of himself and to share some of his thoughts about the competition. Last weekend we received both, so here they are. He seems to be enjoying himself, judge yourself 🙂
Here’s the letter from Jiri to 360 Cities:
I should thank to one of my friends who told me about this competition. At first when i saw the picture I was like whoa! How can anybody find anything here, it’s so big! But then I found the first thing and couldn’t stop until i got all of the first days clues. I spent like 5 or 6 hours in total, trying to find all 30 clues. I guess the most difficult were #21 – fish food and #22 – hippy Czech flag. I’ve traded one or two answers i couldn’t find for those i allready had and once I’ve even involved my girlfriend and her friend in finding the fish food. I would like to thank all the 360 Cities group for making this competition and wish best of luck to them!
We also received a lot of feedback, ideas and suggestions for the next treasure hunt. Most of them are public in the comments in this blog and we’ll publish the rest as new blog posts (if the authors allow us to).
Yes, there’s going to be a next treasure hunt. Now let us get back to work on it 🙂
