A few days ago, Dropbox began its annual contest Dropquest. It’s an online scavenger hunt that leads to participants getting free cloud storage. DropBox describes the contest:
Dropquest is a multi-step scavenger hunt that has you solve a series of puzzles (inspired by the likes of MIT’s mystery hunt or notpron [though not nearly as time/effort-consuming]). Everyone who completes Dropquest will get at least 1 GB of space (even if you participated last year). Also, everyone starts at the same time, but the questers who finish the soonest get amazing prizes!
The prizes are listed as follows:
1st place (1): Dropbox employee hoodie, LIMITED EDITION Dropbox Hack Week t-shirt, Dropbox drawing signed by the entire Dropbox team, invitation to help write the next Dropquest, 100 GB for life!
2nd place (10): Dropbox employee hoodie, Dropbox t-shirt, 20 GB for life!
3rd place (15): Dropbox t-shirt, 5 GB for life!
4th place (50): 2 GB for life!
5th place (100): 1 GB for life!
Dropquest started on Saturday, and they quickly had a winner, but according to Dropbox’s last update on Twitter, there were still plenty more prizes to give out. If you go to the Dropquest site, it appears to still be open.
And we have a winner for Dropquest 2012!!! Hundreds of prizes are still left though — keep questing!
According to Dropbox, everyone who completes Dropquest will get at least 1GB of extra free space.
