Here’s an all new way to enjoy your time at VidCon. #ExploreVidCon is an on-site, social-first scavenger hunt!


A smartphone and/or a camera, public Twitter account, and a willingness to have fun!


It’s simple; complete tasks to earn points!

You can earn points at any time throughout the event. After VidCon, tweet us a compilation video of you completing #ExploreVidCon tasks. To be eligible for prizes you must create the compilation video. Points will only be tallied via videos that are submitted.


  • Each challenge will be worth a different amount of points. The more tasks you complete, the more points you will earn, and the better your chances will be of winning the Grand Prize!
  • Within a week after VidCon US, create a compilation video of your completed challenges and tag @VidCon #ExploreVidcon on Twitter to enter.

One Grand Prize winner and two runner ups will be chosen based on the number of points earned.
