33 is Everywhere: Show us your sightings and you could be rewarded!

Written by: / / 23 Comments

If you’re anything like us at El33tonline, you would see the number ’33’ everywhere you go: On digital clocks, out shopping, on leaderboards, in online nicks and Twitter handles, on receipts, in license plates, street signs, sports jerseys, at the airport… 33 is everywhere.

It’s not that we’re obsessed with the number 33 (but probably more than most), our confirmation bias has been skewed over the years to ensure that we zone in on any appearance out in the wild. It’s also become a very special number to us, and it just so happens to be pretty important for other reasons and to other people, too.

So because we see the number 33 everywhere we go, we thought it would be fun to see if that magic number appears everywhere you go, too!


If you see the number 33 in your everyday life, or you see something that represents the number, or even if you find or create something that reminds you of 33, we would like you to share it with us on Twitter and Facebook.

As is the El33tonline way, we’re not asking you to participate in this grand experiment for nothing, because we’ll be collecting up your sightings and voting on the best one at the end of every month with a chance to win a voucher for PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE or Steam as a reward for your eagle-eyed attention and quick snapping reflexes.

How to Share

To share your photos with us on Twitter, simply follow us and direct your tweet containing the photo at us, @El33tonline, using the hashtag #33IsEverywhere – this is important otherwise we won’t see it!

To share your photos on Facebook, start following us there and either mention us in your own status update containing the photo using @El33tonline (making sure to select El33tonline in the drop-down) or post directly to our wall over here.

Sounds doable?

The Future is 33

This is just the start, and while the rules are pretty fast and loose at the moment we’ll need your input in order to improve as well as your support and participation to make it a success. The more support we get, the bigger the contest can become and the better the reward(s) for your efforts, so be sure to spread the word to friends and family!

If 33 isn’t already an important part of your everyday life, we’re hoping this will change your perception of the world.

Congratulations to Brendon Bosch for snagging the voucher for February! Have a look at his winning entry and the rest of the excellent 33 sightings last month over here.
