Who won the #EasterEggHunt & where were the eggs hidden?

Posted by Action Gear on

Closure on the #EasterEggHunt

We ran an #EasterEggHunt competition between 11 - 18 April, the prize was a GDome. You can read more about the competition here. To everyone who participated - thank you! We've certainly had a blast.

We understand that you might be curious about a few things, so if you want to know where the eggs were hidden, who won the competition or how many eggs they found ... keep scrolling! 

 Just a quick recap, this is what they look like:

The different colour eggs had different points allocated to them. In total you could gather 20 eggs equaling a total of 200 points. 

 

So, who won this competition?

WHO WON! & how many did they get!

Drum roll please.... The winner is Bradley van der Westhuizen! Scroll down to see his score, how he found the eggs and what he plans to do with the GDome.

So what was the winning score?

  • 185 / 200 points
  • 17 / 20 Eggs (7/10 blue eggs, 5/5 pink eggs, 5/5 yellow eggs).

What did you think about the competition?

I thought it was a fantastic idea for a competition! The fact that there was more than one egg to find and one had to look for them on different platforms (like social media, website, newsletter, etc) made it a real challenge. It was loads of fun and I hope to see more competitions like this from Action Gear.

What was your strategy for this hunt?

I initially started the hunt by looking at products I thought were more likely to have an egg, like the Karma, Mavic Pro, GoPro Hero 5, etc. I was right with some of those guesses and wrong with others, but I realised that the only way I was going to find them all (or most of them as it turns out) was to go through every page. I started with all the drones, then the cameras and I clicked on every link I could find.

How much time did you spend searching for the eggs?

I spent a good couple of hours when I first found the competition, maybe 4 or 5 hours or so. Then to find the last few eggs I spent about an hour over the long weekend. Time well spent if you ask me ;)

What will you be doing with the GDome? / What's the first adventure you'll be using it on?

I'm working on a travel-vlogging and travel photography/video business with my wife and we will definitely be using it a lot. The most exciting thing that we have coming up, where we will use the GDome, is on a trip to Thailand that we are planning. We will be doing some scuba diving and loads of snorkeling and I can't think of a better place to use it. Thanks to Action Gear and GDome for running such a rad competition! :)
