Rules and Regulations
- The Heritage Hunt has a total of 16 missions to be completed at 16 different stations, all located within the Georgetown UNESCO Heritage Site. The same set of missions are to be completed by all participating team, each comprises 4 – 5 members. The team that completed the most missions will be the winner.
- All participating teams must gather at the start point (The TOP Entrance - Near KOMTAR Walk) for a briefing session. Location Map will be provided to each team after the briefing.
- The Hunt requires the use of a specially developed mobile-supported platform. At each station, participants should look for a mounting board on which a QR code is printed. Scanning the QR code redirects the participant to receive instructions on how the team is going to complete the particular mission. Some missions throw questions, while others may require uploading of live photos taken at the station.
- For each mission, only ONE response submission is allowed per group. If repeated responses are detected for the same mission from the same group, all responses may be deemed invalid. Exercise caution to check all information, and unite your voices before submitting your response!
- Wrong entries of group information will render the related mission invalid. The submitted response becomes invalid even if it fulfils all other requirements.
- Panel decisions on scores depend entirely on the received submissions at the platform’s back-end. Electronic or network shortcomings that directly or indirectly result in failures to reach a mission or to submit an accurate response, should not be a valid reason to back any teams for any additional credits.
- The entire hunt should under normal circumstances only be completed on foot. No modes of other transportations or vehicles, whether motorised or not, should be observed by any participants from any team, under ordinary or non-critical circumstances. Disobeying teams will be disqualified.
- Teams that complete the most missions based on the organizer’s collected database will be the winner. In the event of similar accumulated scores from 2 or more teams, the team that completed their last mission first will win out.
- The hunt shall end at noon. By then, all participants should gather at the Ending Point (The TOP Entrance - Near KOMTAR Walk). All input of entries at any points after the hunt is declared ended will not be considered.
- The organizer-appointed panel’s decision - after all necessary evaluations and assessments - shall be ultimate. All decisions of the organizer in all matters of the event shall be final and binding on all participants.
