Orlando Informer on Snapchat

How to win

Each of the four geofilters feature the Orlando Informer logo with a different colored border (orange, black, green, and blue). Each geofilter is activated in a different area of the parks. Two are activated in/near one park and two are activated in or near the other.

Find one, screenshot it, and tweet it to @OrlandoInformer for your chance to win one of the Universal gift cards, t-shirts, pins, lanyards, or playing cards we’re giving away! Each of the colors you find and tweet to us will count as one entry, allowing for up to four entries total. Winners will be contacted via Twitter and prizes will be shipped.

Stuck? Tweet us.

What are Snapchat Geofilters?

Geofilters are a fun way to share where you are through filter overlays. They are specific to neighborhoods and special locations. While the unique designs of Geofilters will change place to place, you can find them in a few big cities around the world to start. (source)

BONUS: In the evening, look out for two special Mardi Gras themed Geofilters. While they won’t get you any additional entries into the contest, they’re still cool to send to your friends!
