Official #WinPhan Scavenger Hunt


For many of us, we have grown with Windows Phone, watching it grow slowly but steadily. Some of that growth has come by your own WinPhan efforts and I applaud you. To show our appreciation for your continued support of the WinPhan community, we will be giving away some great Windows Phone items. I am proud to announce, beginning March 1st, we will be launching the first official #WinPhan contest, the #WinPhan Scavenger Hunt. With great thanks to Microsoft’s very special gifts, Windows Phone’s incredible support for and of #WinPhan, and their tireless efforts to see our community succeed, we will be giving away 12 prizes including 2 grand prizes, a Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520. Read past the break for the exciting details on how to enter.
