Gigapixel Treasure Hunt 1 – Win Ten Crumpler Bags!

Each day we’ll publish some clues – starting November 18th – and ending on November 23rd. Clues are things that you can find in the London Gigapixel. You have to find these clues, and be among the first few people to send in screenshots of these clues to an email address below. If you do, you will win an awesome bag from our favorite bag company, Crumpler. No, they didn’t pay us to say that – their bags really are awesome.

If you are interested in this treasure hunt, you might want to look into the second treasure hunt we are doing for the London Gigapixel in which you have a chance to win 27″ Fujitsu LCD panel, or a story-telling competition, in which you can win over $3000 of awesome holidays.

Here are the first three clues:

1. Fat Boy Slim’s Chair

2. Freddie Mercury

3. One of the three mechanical spiders (there are three at three different places and you need to find at least one)

—————————————–

Here’s the second set of clues (released November 19th):

4. Topless olympic torch

5. One leg purple, one leg green

6. Spiderman’s basement

—————————————–

The next set of clues (released November 22nd):

7. Washing up

8. Who you will call when you are trapped inside of a washing machine.

9. British passport.

—————————————–

The last clue (released November 23rd):

10. Victorian milk

—————————————–

Email address for submitting answers (valid only for the 1st treasure hunt, do not use it for the 2nd treasure hunt please):

360 Cities Treasure Hunt

—————————————–

Please don’t forget to read the official rules before you submit your answers. Ask questions here via comments or on our blog, Facebook and Twitter.

Just to repeat the most important rules:

We will pick the FIRST person in our email inbox with the MOST correct answers. So if nobody in the world knows all the answers before the deadline (30 days 11:59pm GMT, December 23, 2010) then we’ll choose the first person who sends us the highest number of correct answers.

If you send us multiple emails, you will be disqualified. Since we’ll probably have thousands of submissions, we’d like to prevent tens of thousands of unnecessary emails coming in. If you find more answers after you submit your answers, the obvious way around this rule is to send a new set of answers from a different email address. If you can’t attach 30 files in a single email, you should get a gmail account.

We will probably announce winners in January 2011. Our team will do their best to find the winner as soon as possible, but we can’t guarantee that – so please give us some time to go through those thousands of emails. Thanks for your understanding.

Happy hunting!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to find the items by myself or can I work with other people?
We recommend that you DO work with other people. 360Cities assumes no responsibility for intra-team arrangements and only one person (dispatcher of the winning e-mail and PayPal account holder) will be considered the winner.

If you want people to work together to find the prize, then I can’t win if I try to do it by myself?
You can win if you do it by yourself – but as they say “two heads are better than one”

How do I make a screenshot?
You can follow these instructions (both windows and mac) http://www.colorpilot.com/screen_howto.html

My email program won’t let me send that many attachments!
You can try a different email provider – Gmail for example will work.

Where do I send the answers?
We will announce the email address where to send the answers with the last set of clues.

The items are hard to find? Will you publish any hints?
Yes! We will publish hints about how to find the items via our Facebook page and on Twitter. You won’t get these hints anywhere else. So if you really want to win, we suggest you follow one of these.

You should watch our Facebook or Twitter page for updates.

  1. I was just thinking about making such a treasure hunt myself
    (actually, I already started when I noticed this one, lol).

  2. Hi jay_s1ngh,

    All countries are eligible except “axis of evil” countries (north korea, iran, cuba etc.) so if you’re from one of the axis of evil countries (i’m trying to have a sense of humor about this by the way) and if you win then you’ll have to get your friend in some other country to get you the prize. We are americans so we have certain restricts WRT this kind of stuff unfortunately.

  4. Hi bob,

    it is a synonym. all the clues are a bit vague, and you’ll have to figure out what we’re actually talking about.

    we don’t want to be too vague or too tricky because that’s not a game, that’s just a wind-up. just to be clear 🙂

    good luck!

  5. my simple opinion little jeff, the thing about axis of bla bla bla, refers to a politician that do bad things, that lives in those countries? or involves a simple man that loves information and wants to participate? why those simple man have to pay for something that they dont do… btw… if you think that way your forget to put in your list the U.S. of america…

    ps.: this was because i enter this place and think “mmm nice contest…(read few post, and then bang “axis of evil”…” how to let it pass that.

    A man from not a country of “axis of evil” but breaking those barriers.

  6. hi zomg,

    as i said, i was making a joke. i have been to cuba for example and i love the people there, etc.

    legally speaking, zomg, if you do win, we are not allowed to send you a prize because we have to obey our laws. but you can have you friend from some other country act as proxy.

    good luck and have fun,
    jeffrey

  7. Ok, I’m glad you feel better. It’s hard to make jokes that translate well into other languages, so sometimes misunderstandings can occur.

    cheers!

  8. Just FYI, nobody has found all 10 correct answers yet. You still have a chance to win! 🙂 Most submissions are close enough if nobody sends all correct answers, we will choose a winner from them, but you still have a chance to win if you submit the correct answers! 🙂 The deadline is December 23rd, so there’s still plenty of time. On a side note, a new treasure hunt starts today in which you can win a 27″ Fujitsu LCD panel. https://blog.360cities.net/gigapixel-treasure-hunt-2-fujitsu/

  9. or8it: Mechanical spider is on a corner of a building, it’s black and it has 8 legs. There is also another mechanical spider which is huge and orange and hangs out where people are. This one doesn’t have so many legs. Hope this helps! 🙂
