Wikipedia Takes Your City in Montreal on August 28th

August 24, 2011

Wikipedia Takes Your City is an all-day photographic scavenger hunt that will be taking place in Montreal on August 28th. This innovative scavenger hunt first took place in 2008 in Manhattan, New York.

The starting point for Wikipedia takes Montreal is at L’Escalier, a pub located at 552 Ste-Catherine East. The contest consists of capturing photographs of as many local sights as possible between 10 a.m and 6 p.m on August 28th. Each participant will be given a target list, which contains addresses and cross streets of all the landmarks Wikipedia wants photographs of. Each landmark is allotted a specific amount of points and at the end of the day participants will meet back at the starting point where the scores will be tallied and the winners determined.

The 3 teams with the highest scores will win $300 each and there is a mysterious grand prize for the best single photograph.
