The CrackBerry GooseChase is going strong and we're seeing so many awesome photos being submitted, it's incredible! Currently we have over 1200 users, over 1400 photos submitted, and total points earned is almost 600,000! If you haven't signed up yet, or maybe signed up but haven't gotten around to submitting pictures for any of the missions, it's not too late! The GooseChase is on until Sunday, and top prize is a brand spanking' new BlackBerry 7 Smartphone and $150 in accessories from ShopCrackBerry.com. But that's not all, don't forget that 2nd-5th place also get accessories, and we're even giving away a bunch of prizes for other eye-catching submissions so if the leaderboard looks scary, don't let it get to you. Also, we just added a handful of new missions so you'll definitely want to check those out.

If you have no idea what a CrackBerry GooseChase is, you can find full details at the original post at the link below. If you need some inspiration, check out the photos after the break. We chose a random sample of the pictures that have been submitted so far to give you an idea of what's going on. So go get involved, have some fun, and send in those pics!!

Jim Balsillie is one the best
not the rest
he is great and very hard working
determined, pleasant and of course diligent!

because he knows how the job needs to be done
and BB is the proof!

Cool they posted three of mine.

The dog's name is Suzy she is 10 and scratched her eye.
And Playbook Jobs is dropping an ipod touch in the trash if there was any confusion.

This is a fantastic competition - WOW ....

I've really enjoyed the creativity of the entries - good on whoever thought this comp up!!!

I am impressed at all the contestant posting fantastic pictures and being creative -- whoever wins kudos to you.

Lol, my poor hair! It was free so I can't complain. Was a lot of fun convincing the hairdressers into helping out on the scavenger hunt.
