The new year is upon us, and what better way to start 2013 than by discovering new literature?

The Challenge



During the week of Jan 7, CRLiterature will be hosting a literature scavenger hunt. A scavenger hunt is typically defined as a game played in an extensive outdoor area, in which participants have to collect a number of miscellaneous objects. Our scavenger hunt will be played in the Literature gallery here on deviantART and will have deviants searching high and low for literature deviations that match the items on the list for the hunt. Have I mentioned there's a total of 60 deviations to be found (20 poetry, 20 Prose, 5 Script, and 15 general items)?

Here are the all-powerful rules :worship:

:bulletblue: You will have 5 days to locate the deviations, starting on Jan 7 12:00 AM EST and ending on Jan 11 11:59 PM EST.
:bulletblue: Post a link to the deviation along with what number it is in the start journal to receive a point.
:bulletblue: A literature piece must be okayed by a CRLiterature staff member to receive credit.
:bulletblue: You may not receive points for a piece someone else has already received points for.
:bulletblue: Only pieces under the Literature gallery may be used in the hunt.
:bulletblue: In the event that some items are scarce we will accept the same hunt item credited to multiple people.
:bulletblue: If one of your own deviations qualifies for an item on the list, you may receive a point for it if you link to it (this rule subject to change).
:bulletblue: You may not create deviations that fit items on the list. Only literature from 2012 or earlier qualifies for the hunt.


Current Prizes:

There are two prize categories. One is for participation and the other is for finding outstanding work that the Community Volunteers like. There are 4 prizes for CV-selected pieces all worth 300 points each. There are 3 participation prizes worth 400 points each for the people who find the most items during the hunt. For every 175 points donated 25 points will be spread out between the 7 winners.

You may be curious as to what these hunt items are like. Some will be easy to find, and others will be much more difficult to locate. You'll just have to stay tuned to CRLiterature on Monday to see for yourself. :la:

Some hints and tips for locating deviations:

:bulletblue: Search for deviations relating to the hunt using browse and using the Groups search function to help locate work as well.
:bulletblue: Keep an eye out for preview images! :eyes:
:bulletblue: Check the author's comments for details such as word count or type of writing.
:bulletblue: Additionally, you may need to find some deviations with certain word counts. Make sure you have a word counting tool handy!
:bulletblue: Make sure you know how to use all of the options when browsing a gallery!
:bulletblue: Some of the items pertain to events and activities that happened throughout 2012. :dummy:

So, are you ready? :iconslipperyhugplz:

The new year is upon us, and what better way to start 2013 than by discovering new literature? During the week of Jan 7, #CRLiterature will be hosting a literature scavenger hunt with 2400 points in prizes up for grabs.
