No matter how deep we get into the digital and mobile world, landing the print cover of Forbes Magazine will always be an impressive feat. In fact, earning a spot on the cover has even become a cultural reference over the years—just ask Bruno Mars.
In honor of our centennial, we are giving the Forbes audience around the world a chance to virtually be on our cover to help us celebrate 100 years of covers. Starting June 9th—100 days before our 100th birthday—we’re launching our Find Yourself on Forbes campaign. This global scavenger hunt will live on Snapchat and use geofilters to get you involved. Here’s how it works: Every Friday morning until September, we will reveal a hint about a location somewhere in the world. Go to that location to find a Snapchat Geofilter resembling a Forbes cover (active from Friday 9 a.m through Sunday 11 p.m , in location’s local time). Snap a photo of yourself on the cover—don’t be afraid to get creative. Submit your cover to us via Snapchat direct message or post your picture on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #Forbesat100 for a chance to see yourself featured on one of our social feeds, Forbes.com or Forbes magazine.
Every Friday, get the new hint info from this post, or on our Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram
Go to that location
Snap a photo of yourself on Snapchat and swipe to find the Forbes cover Geofilter in that location
