If you had to track down fugitives hidden in five cities around the world, would one day and a $5,000 reward be enough to succeed? And if so, how?

On March 31, mug shots of five “suspects” will be published, and it’ll be game on in a global hunt for “jewel thieves” in Bratislava, Slovakia; Stockholm; London; Washington, D.C.; and New York City, each of whom will spend 12 hours that day in public areas. The first team to upload photographs of each of the five by noon eastern time on April 1 will win the competition–and with it, a ton of international glory.
