What's a virtual scavenger hunt?

A regular scavenger hunt gives you a list of things to find, and usually you take pictures to prove you've found them. A virtual scavenger hunt sends you through the vast wilds of the internet to find specific pieces of information! You're provided with links or signifiers to where all of the information can be found, and you have to explore those sites to find the answers to the scavenger hunt questions. Some of the questions might be kind of hard, and some of them will be really easy. It's a great way to explore Baton Rouge's wonderful talent without leaving your home.

Why a virtual scavenger hunt?

Because of COVID-19, we are not able to host an in-person arts and comics market. Setting up a virtual scavenger hunt gives you a specific thing to look for on each page, so you'll still be able to get to know the artists and creators that are participating in this year's Mid City Micro-Con. Don't forget to stop and look around a little while you're scavenging!
