What is a Rediscovery Mission?

A Rediscovery Mission is a mission that aims to creatively re-evaluate some places that are snubbed and ignored with no right by the turistic and cultural promotion.

It is a particular Poiphoto Contest where participiants tell about places specified in the challenge rules by posting Poiphotos. Usually the challenge indicates also some more or less strict requirements for the picture and the creative text.

The challenge lasts a period of time. At the end, there is a voting stage.

Winning poiphotos are decided by a jury, composed by a group of expert (e.g. professional people related to that topic or geographical region) or, more frequently, by the so called "popular jury" (all the registered users).
In some case both the juries, and the votes of each of them award different prizes to the authors of the winning poiphotos, in other cases the last word is up to the jury of expert (the popular jury just indicate its favourite poiphotos, but then the jury of expert can decide what it want).

If some poiphotos get equal votes and each are placed on the podium, then the organizer can start a playoff: usually the playoff lasts 24hours more to let the jury decide the final standing.
