Exchange a photo for free food from Google

Free food is always fantastic. This is why Google decided to offer pedestrians free munchies. However, Google wanted to add some fun by asking people to show photos of something specific in exchange; the photos serve as “payment” for the free food. And so, Google Photos, in collaboration with innovation studio Deeplocal, launched the Google Photos Food Truck challenge.
The Google Photos Food Truck has already begun its tour in New York City and Los Angeles, with over 3,300 participants taking part in the challenge in NYC. It was certainly a fun day for everyone as no one goes home a loser.

The challenge started with a large mechanised countdown clock that starts at 20 seconds. Below it, a list of terms will be picked randomly. Let’s say the term shows “beach,” the participant had to go through their phone’s photos and look for the best beach photo they can find. If they can find a photo within 20 seconds, they win free food. If not, they can still win, but a smaller variant.

What is the point of all this? Google wanted to promote Google Photos, an app that homes all your phone’s photos and video in one place. The app makes it easy to organise your media files as well as locate any image or video file in just a matter of seconds. During the challenge, participants who lost were encouraged to use the app to make the search easier.
