Photo Missions

Photos that do not capture what was specifically requested at the time it was requested, will be eliminated.

A Note About Photo/Video Missions

We understand that everyone may not be able to attend all of the events in the hunt required to complete every mission.

Please do not attempt to “re-create” a situation or event you were unable to attend in order to get the points.

Admins are paying close attention and review all photos and videos as they come in throughout the day.

Participants can flag photos they feel are inappropriate for admins to review.

Most importantly, remember to HAVE FUN!

How do I form a a team?

Get a group of friends together and explore the city using the Hollywood Scavenger Hunt as your guide!  One person (the one with the longest battery life!) should be designated to manage the Scavify App on their phone.  

Only one account per team may be used.  

How is a winner selected?

Your score will be automatically calculated in the app as you go along.  The first person to complete the most missions acurately before the end of the hunt will be the winner.

Can I do the hunt alone?

Of course! Many people have and they make lasting friendships along the way.  

How do I get started?

Download the free app, Scavify on your smartphone or tablet device.  Create an account, choose a team name and search for the Hollywood Scavenger Hunt.   

Missions will begin to appear Dec. 7 at 7 a.m. You will receive notifications from the app.

Do I need to pay anything to participate?

No. Most of the missions are free to complate. There may be costs associated with traveling throughout the city to complete the tasks but these can be mitigated using the city’s Trolley service and public transportation.

From time to time, there may be a purchase required to complete a challenge.  In these rare missions, we faciliate a cost of no more than $10 with the vendor.

Help, my photo was deleted!

Photos that do not capture what was specifically requested at the time it was requested, will be eliminated.

Not everyone can attend all of the events in the hunt. Please do not attempt to re-create a situation or event you were unable to attend in order to get the points. We are watching and review all photos within hours of them coming in.
