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):
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.

Read The Official rules
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.
