What’s it all about ?

WristScan is a unique weekly community event, held between Friday and Sunday with photos and comment posted by our community members. 

WristScan has an element of friendly competition and banter and it’s open to all members, so please join in as you will find that you will be welcomed by our friendly community.

You can find the live thread on both the Home Page and under the WristScan tab in the menu bar.

It’s probably worth looking at the WristScan archive to pickup some ideas and get a feel for the weekly event.

Each week a new theme is announced by the member acting as our event host and on Friday at around 1:00 GMT the opening theme thread is launched for you to post your photos and comments 

Friendly Competition 

Three categories are available for you to enter your photos under, giving you three opportunities to win or be given an honourable mention. They are:

Watch Of The Week

This category will be judged by the host of WristScan and is awarded to the watch that the host believes, best represents the WristScan theme. Watch value is not the decisive factor !

Best Wrist Scan

Judged to be the best photograph of a watch on a wrist entered. 

Best Static Shot

Judged to be the best photograph of a static watch, (not on a wrist) entered. 

The winners of each category are announced in a “Judges Verdict” thread posted on Sunday at approximately 17:00 GMT. 

Note: The start and finish times can change due to the WristScan host and Judges being different time zones. 

Please keep in mind that the emphasis is on joining in and having fun and it’s a great way to make friends within our community. 

Helping Out 

You could participate by offering to judge a category or even become one of our chosen Guest Hosts, when you have joined us for WristScan and got the hang of things. 

If you need any further help with WristScan or you would like to make a comment about the event please feel free to send a Private Message (PM) to Cpt Scarlet,  WristScan Editor.
