A new photo scavenger hunt app for smartphones is premiering with its first ever race in Westminster, Md. the weekend of Oct. 13th, 2017. SURCH, a smartphone-based contest app developed by local entrepreneur Steve Lowe, is a real-time competitive photo scavenger hunt (called a Photo Race) where players must take five pictures of key landmarks or locations, the fastest to achieve all five winning a $1000 prize. Recently released for Apple and Android devices, SURCH is a brand-new, city-based photo scavenger hunt where hundreds or thousands of players can compete for actual prize money using the app’s clues and “Vues” to take pictures of local landmarks and places.


“I couldn’t be happier to see SURCH debut right here in Westminster,” said Founder Steve Lowe, a Maryland native and Carroll County entrepreneur. “The fact that SURCH is finally a real app with real games and real prize money is just an unbelievable feeling and we’re beyond excited to debut it right here in the Westminster area.”


SURCH, LLC, the company that developed the SURCH app with Steve Lowe at the helm, is kicking off a nationwide city-to-city tour for SURCH, one weekend for each select city. With the SURCH leadership team of designer Kim Harberson and Linq Services Owner Kevin Lowe, the Westminster contest weekend marks not only the first game for SURCH but also the beginning of an entire movement intended to get players out of their homes and out into their towns and cities, together.


“The community and human connection side of SURCH is huge,” said Lowe who has spent most of 2016 and 2017 overseeing the intensive development build out of the app. “Although winning serious cash is a great motivator, the real magic of the app is its ability to get people into their cities and having a great time together in real life. And cities have a new way to showcase their uniqueness.” The SURCH app has the capability for users to play Photo Races for money or just on their own for fun. They can also play as many times during the search window as they want. Lowe believes the app will find major traction with students, urbanites, entire families, and friends.


The SURCH app can be downloaded now for free through the Apple and Android app stores with the official prize contest beginning at noon on Friday, October 13th and ending at 6pm on Sunday, October 16th. The winner and top players of the app will be invited to a celebration event at a local restaurant on Sunday night where the winner will be revealed.
