WrestleMania Social Photo Scavenger Hunt Contest details
For the first time ever, WWE is holding a unique social media contest for those attending WrestleMania weekend in the San Francisco Bay Area, with the chance to win $1,000 in WWEShop.com gift cards.
The contest -- a Social Photo Scavenger Hunt -- challenges our eagle-eyed fans in the Bay Area to spot photo subjects in 10 unique categories, while enjoying the sights and sounds of WrestleMania weekend.
Here's how to enter:
- Snap a digital photo of any of the subjects listed in the 10 scavanger hunt categories below.
- Post that photo to your Instagram or Twitter account with the hashtag for that photo's scavenger hunt category. For example, a photo of a WrestleMania logo sign should be tagged #WMPhoto1.
One winner will be randomly selected for each of the 10 Social Photo Scavenger Hunt categories, and each will receive a $50 WWEShop.com gift card.
One of the 10 categories will be randomly selected as the Grand Prize category, and an additional winner will be drawn as our Grand Prize winner of $1,000 in WWEShop.com gift cards. The more Social Photo Scavenger Hunt categories you enter, the greater your chances of winning the Grand Prize.
