Community Photo Scavenger Hunt


One of the best ways to show off the fun and beauty of your community is to challenge residents to post selfies or photos of themselves at different places around the premises.

You can frame it as a photo contest and award prizes for the best photos, or simply have residents complete the scavenger hunt for all listed locations. This will both help build your resident’s sense of belonging and help showcase to residents all that you offer on the premises.

 Organizing the Scavenger Hunt

 Make a list of the locations in your community that you most want to show off.

 You can encourage residents to take artistic, funny, or interesting pictures of areas all around the community.

 Here are some ideas…

·         Pool/Hot tub

·         Gym/Workout equipment

·         Tennis court

·         Office

·         Computer station/Printer

·         Basketball court

·         Doggy park area

·         Meeting hall

·         Clubhouse

·         Laundry rooms

·         Lounge areas

·         Benches

·         Walkways

·         Parking lot

·         Playground

·         Trees/bushes/flowers

·         BBQ grill areas

·         Front gate

·         Mailboxes

·         Staff

·         Other residents

·         And even inside residents’ apartments!

 Design and print checklists of your most preferred amenities, and give prizes to the first person to complete the scavenger hunt. You can also hold a drawing for all the residents who participate and complete the activity.

 Submitting Photos

 There are a few ways to organize the contest depending g on your preferences and how you want to showcase the photos. 


 Email is useful if you want to have full control over both where the videos are displayed and their captions. Once residents email you their entries, you can upload the videos yourself to a dedicated album. You will also be able to add your own captions when (and if) it comes time for voting.

 Social Sharing

 Social tagging of your community on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or other social platforms - and perhaps including a specific hashtag you create yourself, for example “#YourCommunutyPhotoContest2018” - will help you easily search for and find the entries that residents are submitting. 

The upside of social sharing entries is that you will reach more of their friends and followers when residents post the image(s) themselves. The downside is that you have little control over your public image or the captions added by residents. If you have a “rowdy” community this may not be the best way to go.

 Rivet Works

 Rivet works is a paid program that allows you to collect the user-submitted content of various types. You can then approve or decline the entries before they are ultimately displayed in collectors placed on key selling pages of your website. 

You can also make collectors that do not display images at all. You can use the collector for residents to quickly submit their entries to the contest in a simplified and organized way.

 Rivet works is a great option if you intend to share the images on your website. It’s also a great choice if you want to make a fun and artistic photo gallery to showcase your community “through your resident’s eyes.”

 Encouraging a wide-range of resident submitted photos of your community will allow you to feature photos of your community’s amenities to your social pages in a fun and interesting way! Have fun scavenger hunting for all your best community amenities!
