To enter our iPad photo contest, collect as many iPad contest entry tickets as you can by finding and identifying the mystery photos in the PassPorter Photo Archive. Each day a new mystery photo will be posted -- when you locate and identify the photo in the archive, you receive a contest entry ticket. iPad contest entry tickets can be collected on PassPorter.com between January 12, 2012 at 12:01 am ET and May 1, 2012 at midnight ET.
Each day we will post at least one new Mystery Photo at our PassPorter Photo Archive (near the top of the page). Your mission is to study the photo (what you can see of it, that is) and then locate the photo in the Photo Archive. When you find the correct photo, you'll see a small iPad icon appear on the photo's page -- click it to save your iPad entry ticket. It's that simple!
Here's an example of a Mystery Photo ...
If the above image were an actual mystery photo, you would want to look carefully at the photo -- and as you can see, it is a photo of fireworks at the Magic Kingdom, because you can identify Cinderella Castle at the bottom. So your next step would be to go to the PassPorter Photo Archive and either search on 'firework' or simply begin browing the Magic Kingdom - Parades, Shows, and Fireworks section. Without too much trouble, you would eventually spot, match, and identify the photo as being Magic Kingdom - Wishes Fireworks. Then you'd simply locate the iPad Photo icon and click it to save your entry ticket! Here's what the iPad Photo icon looks like:
Important: You must be a registered member of the PassPorter community (it's free and easy to register) -- and logged into the PassPorter Photo Archive -- to save a contest entry ticket. If your member name has unusual characters in it, particularly an apostrophe, you may have difficulty logging in -- the only solution is to change your member name to remove the apostrophe. To request a member name change, please send a PM to Jennifer Marx
Tip: Mystery photos will be posted daily, but some or all will disappear after a certain amount of time, so you'll want to check frequently. Additionally, some mystery photos may appear elsewhere on our web site, and if you spot one of those and locate it in our Photo Archive, you can get bonus entry tickets. Keep a close eye on our blogs, message boards, newsletter, and Facebook pages for clues and hints that lead to bonus photos!
Want extra tickets? Bonus tickets will be awarded to the TOP FIVE fastest individuals who find each mystery photo. Additionally, everyone can earn extra bonus tickets by clicking the Facebook "Like" button on each mystery photo's page in the Photo Archive! (Don't have a Facebook account? [url=http://www.facebook.com]Get one free here then come visit PassPorter on Facebook!) The Contest Tally Page will track these bonus tickets for you!
Please note: I apologize in advance for any site slowdowns we experience during the contest. I've made a number of improvements to the site in an effort to increase speed during high traffic periods (such as contests like this), but I cannot be sure how well they work until we actually get high traffic. If you experience slowdowns or page errors, I recommend you visit again at off-peak hours. Thank you in advance for your patience.
Need hints? You may look for/ask for hints from your fellow community members here and on PassPorter's Facebook page, but please look first before asking for a hint. If you find the mystery photo, you're welcome to post hints, but please refrain from simply linking the photo here -- that just takes the fun out of it. You are, however, welcome and encouraged to "like" the photo on your Facebook page (you can simply click the "Like" button you'll see below the iPad Contest icon) -- in fact, you'll receive a bonus contest entry for doing so! You can also get bonus tickets for being one of the first five people to find a new photo, so it pays to keep an eye out for new ones!
Please use this thread to post questions and tips for one another, and watch it for hints and announcements from PassPorter.
I love the contest. You tricked us by putting up 4 photos in the first day, but I found them. It is nice being here for the first day, and not having to catch up.
Are we allowed to give hints like last time? They were a big help to me, and I'd like to pass that on...discretely, of course.
I'm also happy to see a fresh thread for the new contest. The old one was way long.
