What Counts as an Oz Spotting
What doesn't count
ONE OF A KIND SPOTTING
Sometimes unique one of a kind spottings happen. It maybe a tattoo or an old sign somewhere out in the bush. The gamemaker will judge uniquness upon upload and assign points.
FIRST SPOTTING OF OZ AT A SPECIFIC LOCATION
Be the first to spot Oz at a specific location and get extra points. Location information must be sent with the upload.
ADDITIONAL SPOTTINGS OF OZ AT A SPECIFIC LOCATION
If you spot Oz at a location after someone else has, no worries, you still get points. Location information must be sent with upload.
SPOTTING WITHOUT LOCATION INFORMATION
Even if you don't like to share location information with the game, you're still an important part of the game.
What's This All About?
The spottin'oz app is part of practice-based Master of Fine Art research undertaking. As a player, you will be part of a collaborative endeavor that will culminate in a crowdsourced cache of imagery. This imagery will be folded back into other analog mediums of visual art.
