It's that time again! A new month, a new guild contest!

I have to thank Pipis for the idea for this one - a long while ago, she ran a contest which involved searching for the locations in a set of screenshots she provided. I'm basically going to be doing the same!

How It Works.

So, when the competition starts, I'm going to upload a set of pictures to an online album, and then post the link to that album in a forum thread.
Your job is to find all the locations in each picture!
There are several ways I will accept.

1. You can make your own picture album somewhere, and number each upload with the corresponding number. You can then provide me with the link before the contest deadline.
2. You can PM on the forum a numbered list of all the locations.
3. A mix of the two. See below for reasons why you'd want to do this....

Of course, there's always going to be rules, so....

The Rules

  • A forum PM must be submitted by the deadline, otherwise your entry will not count.
  • Only one PM will be accepted, so make sure you have all the locations you can find before you submit!
  • Only the methods listed above will be accepted.
  • Information required, and scoring, will be listed below.
  • You can trade information with contestants if you wish!
  • In the result of a tie, there will be a tiebreaker! This will be kept secret until required!
  • Depending on the number of photos, this will take place either over a weekend, or a week.
Example for submitting your answers:
Lets use the image above. If you're submitting an album of screenshots, you need to replicate my screenshot as closely as you can.
If you're submitting using text, then I need two pieces of information. The zone, and the co-ordinates! Yes, co-ords! Make sure you have an add-on that will show them to you.

So if you stand your character in the same spot that mine is, you'll get the entry of: Ironforge, 23/76.

Scoring

Each photo has a possible 3 points to be gained.
For a correctly submitted screenshot, you get three points.
For a correctly given zone, you get 1 point, for the correct co-ords you get 2 points.
You can not submit a photo, and the location/co-ords for one image, it has to be either or.

If you are doing a photo album, and have 75% of the pictures, you can add the remaining via text format if you want a guess at the zones. This will have to be in the PM.
For example:

(link to photo album)
5. Guess
11. Guess
27. Guess

Prizes!

Orb of Deception
Mekgineer's Chopper
Garn Nighthowl PLUS four Hexweave Bag
15,000g cash prize


The winner will get to choose a prize, and get a special guild rank for the month!


Please post any questions below. Register your interest now! Date and time of commencement to follow!

Photos!

For some reason they uploaded out of sync, but each screenshot is numbered anyway.

Happy Hunting!

Yay! I choose the gold :p. Cant open the scoresheet, can you tell me where 25 and 33 are? Found two of those altar-and-orb things, but none of them were right, also a couple of paintings of the lady, but no barrels. I really gotta know! Best pic was the one in the garrison, I spent hours looking for that :D.

So the orb was in Borean Tundra - the place where you can get the new murloc pet.

The painting was World's End Tavern in Shatt!

Hmm why is this pet not on warcraftpets.com? I don't think I'd found these even if I had a month for it.
