Join in the GREAT Renderosity Petal Hunt!

Here's the Scoop. On Friday, May 18th, 2007, at 12:00pm [noon-CST-Renderosity Server Time], we will be hiding the 18 thumbnail images (shown above) in various locations all over the Renderosity website.

All you have to do, is be here on Friday, May 18th, at 12:00pm [noon-CST-Renderosity Server Time], and look around the Renderosity website to find where all 18 thumbnails (shown above) have been "hidden".
**Just to clarify, when submitting the URLs, we are looking for the URL of the PAGE where you found the image.**

Once you have located all 18 thumbnails, send an e-mail titled "PETAL HUNT" to admin@renderosity.com with the URL locations of where you found the 18 images.

SPECIAL NOTE: The flower thumbnails are NOT "hidden" in the Contest Area. These were originally contest entries and are still there for archive purposes. If you send us URLs for the flower thumbnails that are in the contest area, your Petal Hunt submission will be invalid.

If you are one of the first 10 people to send us an email with the correct locations and you will get to pick 1 item from the Prize Pool. 10 Prizes will be awarded on a First-Come-First-Pick basis and certain prizes are only available while supplies last.

I love all of the beautiful flower photos! What a wonderful idea!

This sounds like a lot of fun! Thanks for keeping things lively! :D

Sounds like a fun contest but I'm from the Southern Hemisphere (Sydney,Australia) and at 12.00pm Renderosity time it will be 3.00am approx Sydney time...I will be asleep (hopefully)...so I agree with .Artemis. :o(

TheBryster ( posted at 12:00AM Sat, 12 May 2007

Probably the best competition ever invented!

If you are one of the first 10 people to send us an email with the correct locations and you will get to pick 1 item from the Prize Pool. 10 Prizes will be awarded on a First-Come-First-Pick basis and certain prizes are only available while supplies last. >>>>>> Well thats a bit unfair to the rest of the world ... people have to to get up in the middle of the night for this... So by the time they get up, do a day of work, and come home at night to get online .. I think you have 100's entry's from people who are on your time zone... Thats not realy thoughtfull of Renderosity.. Nice contest but way to unfair for non USA members... Chris

Hi Chris, Unfortunately, there's no ideal time that the entire world will be awake to participate. That being the case, we wanted to make sure that everyone could get something special and select vendors are providing a free flower download for everyone that stops by on Friday, May 18th, regardless of what time zone or part of the world you are in. We hope you will enjoy your choice of the free flowers. All the best, Lillian

i think this is a nice idea, im not into flowers except roses, but might be fun if im up in time LOL to do this :)

Dragonluna1 ( posted at 12:00AM Thu, 17 May 2007

Cool!

pdblake ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

You could have just picked 10 at random from all the correct entries at the end of the day.

pdblake ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

How do we get the free download, all those links just point to store pages.

LillianH ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

Hi pdblake, Excellent suggestion! I think we'll have to do that for our next such event. The FREE DOWNLOAD link is NOW Open at the bottom of the page.

pdblake ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

Ah I see Lil, I must have got here a little early:)

pokeydots ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

Has this started yet? Or did I miss it? lol

LillianH ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

LET THE HUNT BEGIN! All the thumbnail images are hidden all over the site. Now the trick will be to find them.

Terminator1138 ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

seems some are appearing late I checked a few pages only to come back and find one here and there....no issues really just a comment is all

LillianH ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

To make sure everyone understands, we are looking for the URL of the page where you found the flower thumbnail.

dragonmuse ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

I am finding this contest extrememly frustrating, I have been through every possible page and have not found very many, have even gone back and started over without any luck at all, been nearly an hour since I last saw one... and one IS in the contest section and I see no other possible reason for it being where it is. You wouldn't be so cruel as to hide them in the gallery pages I hope :(

Terminator1138 ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

so are these all 100 percent up or you still adding some>?

Khonsu ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

It seems to me to be impossible. How could one browse through thousands and thousands of pages? 24 hours would not be enough. I have to quit. A pity.

lunaE ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

Are there any winners yet

Naunet ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

Will the thumbnails be hidden on product pages or on individual forum pages?

darth_poserus ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

Nice contest. I had fun searching for the petals. My system locking up causing me to lose some of the url's to the petals wasn't so fun though. Good job at hiding them too Lillian, I visited parts of the site today I didn't even know existed.

pandorampp ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

3 hours of searching and still need six. I'm not looking anymore.

LillianH ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

KEEP HUNTING! We still do not have any winners yet...

LillianH ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

Okay...time for some hints... 1. They are not in the galleries. 2. Yes, there is one in the MarketPlace...Renderosity products are a good place to look ;-) 3. Yes, they are all hidden. 4. When looking for the missing few...and not sure what else to do, search deep into...who we are and what we do...

Terminator1138 ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

spend longer than that and found 10 of the 18 and I really went over several links, fun, but got tired of clicking my pour mouse and may have to replace him :)..sent in what I found anyway albeit a non winning entry

AscendedSpirit ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

my this is tough I have only found 9 of the images.

phoenixwaller ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 18 May 2007

I've managed 12 so far. :(
