Photo Quest Detroit: Photowalk - Dinner - Prizes

Motor City Photography WorkshopsRoyal Oak Photography Group and Camera Mart have teamed up to bring you a huge scavenger hunt on the streets of Detroit and the rails of the People Mover.

This is an all-day event, starting with registration at 1 pm at the Greektown Casino Hotel (in the lobby). Then we’ll all head out in teams with a set of clues leading to items to hunt down using the People Mover to get around.

After your team has found all (or most ) of the items on the list – you’ll head back to Greektown for dinner at Pizzapappalis (included in the price) where we’ll upload your photos to our overhead projector. THEN your submssions will judged by how many of the items you got correct as well as who took the best, most creative photos of the scavenger hunt items. The winners will be announced and awarded that night.

Winners? Wait! What? There are PRIZES?  Why yes, yes there are.

There will be up to $300* in cash prizes as well as Camera Mart Gift Cards to be awarded to the winning teams.

    Hello all! Tomorrow is our Scavenger Hunt! I am so excited! Here’s some things that you want to know, AND some things that you NEED to know! Here is your Need to Know information: 1. You will need $.75 times 3 (so $2.25) to ride the people mover. We will tell you were to get on and off, so we won’t make you figure that out. And you will be entering the People Mover 3 times. You can use all quarters, OR you can purchase tokens at the station. 2. You should park in the Greektown Casino parking lot. This SHOULD be free – but every once in a while they charge – so be prepared. (I don’t know how much they charge, because when they do I find somewhere else to park ☺) 3. You will meet us in the Greektown HOTEL LOBBY. 4. Please be on TIME – we’ll start setting up the groups and handing out the information right at 1:00 and I don’t want to say everything twice. THANK YOU!! ☺

      5. Once you leave the hotel, you’ll have 3 to 3.5 hours to complete this scavenger hunt . We will meet at the restaurant around 5. Salads hit the tables at 5:30. 6. I am borrowing a card reader from Jeff Krueger (THANKS THE JEFF!!) , so I should be able to read your card with no problems. If you think that I won’t be able to read your card for whatever reason – please bring your card reader for your camera to connect to my computer.

      Here is your WANT to know information: 1. Because prizes were based on attendance, we will have just over $200 to give away. IF everyone shows up (we had two last minute people sign up tonight – and this number is based on them actually showing up and paying when they get there) FIRST PRIZE $180 (This could go down to $160 if they don’t show as per above)
      Second Prize $30
      Third Prize Camera Mart Gift Cards We have some just about PERFECT weather for tomorrow. 73 and Sunny! But just because it’s not hot, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t remember to bring your water. Staying hydrated will make your day even better. I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow at 1pm.

    Within the 4-man teams: does each team member shoot pics/capture the list items on our respective camera and cards or do we have only one camera per team and turn in only one memory card for the post review?

    • Sean D. F.
