You will then be taken to a Box upload page where you can upload your thermal images.

The scavenger hunt started on June 4th and will run through July 2nd. The winners will be announced on FLIR’s Facebook page on July 3rd at 10:00 am PDT. You are required to submit five photos from the following list of subjects:
