Two hundred forty-four players snapped 1,243 photos in Session Scramble, our Legislature-themed photo scavenger hunt. Competition was stiff on the leaderboard as players photographed high-fiving legislators, demonstrations outside the Capitol and brides-to-be sneaking in wedding photos amid the hubbub of the session. After careful vetting by our judges, the contest ended with top prizes going to three players (gotta love these user names):
Our celebrity judge, David Dewhurst, gave a special nod to the player Damnyouregis for the game's most creative pic, which you see below. It was submitted for the category "The Texas Capitol has its own real-life Statue of Liberty." Of the winning photo, Dewhurst said, "It's a great representation of our state's love of freedom, liberty and opportunity."
Damnyouregis takes home the Central Texas Getaway package, which includes a night at Hotel Havana and gift certificates for Shady Grove and Arcade Midtown Kitchen.
Thanks to all players.
Here we post daily leaders in the 2013 Session Scramble, a Legislature-themed photo scavenger hunt. Think of it as Instagram with cut-throat competition instead of sepia tone filters.
