Funky Foto Contest Rules

Next Funky Friday Foto (#95)

will be posted on March 12.

Previous Sample Clues & Answers:

Note: You can’t win more than once every 4 weeks.


Q: So how does this contest work?

A: Each week on Friday I will write a blog entry called Funky Friday Foto Find (FFFF) which will contain a picture that was taken recently in a public location in Foster City. In order to win, you simply need to be the first person to correctly identify the person/place or thing pictured in the photograph.

Q: Where do I put my answer?

A: Write it as a comment to the post. The only information we need is your name and email address before the comment. You don’t even need to use your real name, but then you won’t receive public credit for your brilliance. You don’t even need a real email address, but then we won’t know how to give you your prize. Your email address will NOT be printed, but only used so that we can contact the winner. Be sure to be specific in your answer. For example, if the picture is of the fountain at City Hall, you need to say exactly that. Unacceptable answers would be: a fountain, splashing water, or cool landscaping.

Q: Can anyone participate?

A: Yes. However, to give everyone a sporting chance, I’m making the arbitrary rule that the same person cannot win more than once every 4 weeks, although they’re still free to comment. I am also going to exclude licensed fellow real estate agents that belong to SAMCAR along with their families. Being out and about the city so much, we have an unfair advantage.

Q: What do I get if I win ?

A: The prizes will vary each week. Perhaps lunch for two at a Foster City Restaurant, a gift certificate to a local market, a free car wash or something new I discover that I think you will enjoy. The weekly Prize will be posted along with the weekly Photo. If you operate a Foster City business and are interested in donating a prize, please get in touch with me.

Q: How will I know if I’m the winner.

A: We will send you an email to make arrangements to deliver the prize. Additionally, all comments (along with the exact time and date they were submitted) will be printed on the following Monday. If there is a winner, it will be announced. If not, I’ll print a hint and the contest will remain open. I plan for the photos to become trickier to identify as we go along. Even if you’re not the winner, please feel free to leave a message, comment or suggestion for everyone to read and then be sure to try again next week.
