Setting up a Photo Scavenger Hunt using Gamification

Please note, Using this feature requires the Gamification Event Power-Up  and the event app. Photo Scavenger is not currently available for Virtual Events.

One of the features you will get access to when purchasing our Gamification Event Power-Up is Photo Scavenger Hunt.

This feature allows you to set up photo challenges for on-site events that award points when submitted through the Mobile Event App. One of the most common ways customers utilize this feature is by giving a brief description and allowing attendees to take a photo that matches that description. Not only is Photo Scavenger a good way to drive user engagement, it also creates a fun experience for Attendees throughout the event. 

PheedLoop's in built prize management system can also be used to award dedicated attendees. For more information, please review our Setting up Gamification and Prizes for In-Person Events and Setting Up Gamification & Prizes for Virtual Events article.

As an administrator or team member, you have the authority to create challenges and include who can take part in them. When an attendee's submission is approved, they will be rewarded with a set amount of gamification points. Posts that are not approved will not earn any points.
