IFC Finals - First Round.
Hello there! Welcome to our digital castle.

Welcome back peoples! This is it! We're here! The Information Finding Championship finals!
It looks like we had 39 players who made it onto the leaderboard of the IFC. That's just the amount of people who managed to score at least 1 point.
I'm not sure how many people actually played in the tournament all together.. Maybe someone could find those numbers or something close.. But.. I'd say there were probably another 20 or so people who played but never scored any points.
Maybe more, maybe less.. Though.. That's my guess. We probably had around.. 60 players total? And out of all that.. We're down to 16..
Congratulations to the 16 of you who made it here.
In a sense, you're all Information Finding Champions.. However.. There can only be one official Information Finding Champion each season.
Who will it be? Will it be you..? I guess we'll see!

@theguruasia has donated another 10 steem reaching the 20 he pledged and now the prizes for 2nd and 3rd have increased. :)
It's now 35 steem for 2nd place and 15 steem for 3rd place thanks to the kindness of him! :)
Plus @tonyr has donated a Trophy Token to the winner of the whole championship. If you'd like to know more about the Trophy Token you can go to this link.
If you appreciate the IFC please give them both a thanks if you appreciate their generosity. :) As well as all of the great sponsors we've had!
The first round in the finals is Kryptocek's photo scavenger hunt!
We did this one once earlier in the season and pretty much everyone who I saw that entered said they had a lot of fun. It was a raving success so to speak.
We're doing it again by popular vote and will of the people, this time though I will pick the items on the list as Kryptocek is competitor in this challenge.
Clouds 1 point
Animal 1 point
Pyramid 1 point
Garden 1 point
Plush toy 1 point
Guitar 1 point
Bridge 1 point
Gold coin 2 points
Star 2 points
Tattoo 2 points
Reflection 2 points
Mask 3 points
Rainbow 3 points
Crystal 3 points
Castle 4 points
Wizard hat 4 points
Alien/UFO 5 points
To be clear, you must find pictures of these items somewhere in the physical world.
And you can find virtually any representation of the item as long as it's not like a pic off your computer/the internet or something like that.
For example with the rainbow, it doesn't have to be a real rainbow from a rain storm, it could be.. Someone with a rainbow colored shirt or iridescence in some gasoline or stagnant water.
It can be items from your own home or yard or body, for example a garden could be your own garden, or a tattoo could be on your own body but if you don't have one you might have to try to find someone elses.
More examples could be for the castle it could be a lego castle or a UFO/alien could be on a DVD/video game cover or something.. But hey! If you do manage to take a picture of a real UFO/alien I think you deserve a lot more than 5 points, lol. :D
Oh.. And.. You can get 2 for 1 or more as well, what I mean is.. You could get multiple items on the list in one picture, for example a star tattoo would be two items checked off the list. No extra points for that, but it will be one less picture for you to take and upload.
If you're a bit unfamiliar still with how the round works and feel confused, feel free to check out this link before from the previous time we did this contest to get an idea more of how it works.
This time in addition to just the IFC tag we would also like it if you write/print the date on the piece of paper as well, otherwise people could build up a collection of images and cheat.
So sorta like this, but with the date on it.
ALSO.. Please don't hesitate to ask myself or one of the other judges if you have a question, I'm sure someone will be happy to try to help.
I should also tag everyone who made it here as well.
Har5h told us he is too busy and has given his spot to the next highest ranked person who is warpedpoetic.
If there's a tie, we will do a tie breaker round.
And now a moment for our sponsors!
First up is @ats-david who has helped greatly! If you appreciate this contest or just his efforts in general you may want to look into voting for him as a witness at @ats-witness, he does a lot of other cool things for the community as well!
Next is @timcliff who has similarly helped out the contest significantly and who is also a witness who does a lot for the community, so likewise if you appreciate the efforts you may want to vote for him as witness also!
@krnel has also offered some support and does other good things to help out on the platform in general, I suggest you vote for krnel as a witness as well if you want to support all of this.
@steemcommunity has also helped us and expressed interest in helping more in the future and they likewise also help the community in various additional ways, I suggest voting for them as witness as well!
And @nxtblg who has resteemed and upvoted our challenges a bunch which has been a big help!
Plus one other person who has been helping a lot who deserves some credit is @soundlegion who has also been upvoting the contests regularly.
And while not technically sponsors, we are working with @davemccoy and those at #newbiegames and #newbieresteemday and they do a great service to the community so definitely check them out if you appreciate that, or if you're new.
Also not a sponsor, though @iexplore has taken a huge workload directly off of my shoulders and is now doing the "catch up" rounds, those should be posted on the @ifc page.. And I suggest giving him a follow and some support as well if you appreciate the work as he is doing an amazingly helpful and important job!
And another thank you to our recent sponsor @underground for donating 10 Steem.
Eagle Spirit gains another 10 XP for this which puts her at 35 XP, and we are probably going to use the steem from her sponsors to help fund a special IFC All Star round. :) Stay tuned for that!
One more thing, I just noticed this.. A 5 SBD donation from @youhavewings with a nice message attached thanking us for what we do at the IFC, thank you youhavewings! And you're welcome as well for what we do. :) Glad to share this experience with all of you! <3
