WDD Photo Scavenger Hunt 2012

November 14th, 2010 we put on a one time World Diabetes Day Photo Scavenger Hunt event. Last year many were disappointed that the Photo Scavenger Hunt was not made an annual addition to Connected in Motion event roster… So, this year we brought it back in a BIG WAY! This year it was not limited to the city of Toronto, but available worldwide! For the 2012 WDD Photo Scavenger Hunt we had people participating in: Windsor/Essex county, Calgary, Halifax, Wollaston Lake, Grand Prarie, Swan Lake,  AND Toronto participating in Canada… As well as in the cities: of Harrisburg, Indianapolis, Oklahoma City, and Boston (United States); Addis Ababa (Ethiopia); Belgrade (Serbia); Ancient Olympia (Greece); São Paulo (Brazil);  Nelson (New Zealand); and Perth (Australia)!

Further, we added ten items on the Photo Scavenger Hunt list to post to Flickr for judging. The prize? Bragging rights and a place here on the CIM website, cementing your claim to fame. Jen and I (Virtue) sat down this weekend to go over each category and pick out our favourites. Here they are:
