This is what Chrysta Rae says about the scavanger hunt:
The Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt is an amazing game that has turned into so much more. If you love photography, and you have a camera, you can play!
After sign ups (500 spots are open) I will be giving you an item list - (after I have everyone registered) 10 simple things to take pictures of. It's up to you to make your picture stand out!! So fun!! I give you an amount of time to get those shots done (approximately 2 months).
You do NOT need to be a professional shooter.
You do NOT need to feel any hesitation on your skill level, as this group of Scavengers is one of the most supportive groups of people around.
This is just FOR FUN. To get you using your camera in ways you might not do otherwise, It's to push yourself to try new things.
During the course of the round, you will make friends, you will learn from some amazing photographers, we have behind-the-scenes lessons, personal interaction with the judges, etc. etc. You will have support and be encouraged and be a part of THE MOST amazing community on G+.
Since Google+ closed down a few years ago the hunt has found a new home at scavengerhunt.photography/
