Rules, Info, and Prizes

This contest is not officially associated with the DragonCon convention. Please don’t sue us, DragonCon!  We love you!

These rules have been updated for the 5th Annual DragonCon Photo Hunt, 2014. Be sure to check Twitter (@DC2014PhotoHunt), our Facebook Page and the blog often for updates.

Submitting Photos

Post all submissions to our Flickr group: DC 2014 Photo Hunt

When using the Flickr website, first join our Flickr group. Next, navigate to the photo you want to add to the group, click on the Actions drop-down menu above the photo, and select Add to / Remove from a group. This brings up a dialogue box allowing you to select the DC 2014 Photo Hunt group from your list of groups.

Please note:

  • All of your submissions must be sent from the same Flickr account to be counted together.
  • To be counted as a submission, tag each of your photos with the number of the item on the list that the photo satisfies.
    Example: a picture of 3 My Little Ponies should include the tag “34″
  • To fulfill the requirements of an item on the photo hunt list, the image should be a single photo, actually taken at this year’s convention. No cheating with photo editing software!
    Example: “Link and Zelda” = a single photo of two appropriately costumed people standing next to each other (not two separate photos pasted together)
  • You MAY submit more than one photo for each item on the list. You won’t get extra points for quantity, but it may help you with ‘quality.’

About the scoring: Scoring is based primarily on quantity of list items satisfied (not total number of photos). Partial credit is awarded for photos that meet some requirements but not all (i.e. 2 Avengers instead of 3).
