Tips from the duoveo team
Save your phone's battery
Here are a few tips to minimize your battery usage during your adventures:
- use airplane mode as soon as you start your adventure
- reduce your screen’s luminosity
- bring an external battery in case you need to recharge
Take your pictures and videos with your favorite app, upload them afterwards
The magic of the duoveo app is that you can upload your media (pictures, videos and audio files) in your adventure afterwards. Just take your pictures or videos like you are used to and upload them once your hike is done. Thanks to the GPS data stored in your media, our app will be able to automatically place them.
However, note that only pictures, videos and audio files taken on your phone will include GPS data. Media taken on someone else’s phone and shared via text or WhatsApp will NOT include the GPS data.
Is the duoveo app free to use?
Yes, our app is free on iOS (7+) and Android (9+) devices. All you have to do is download it from your mobile store and create an account. Et voilà !
How many winners will you pick?
Our jury composed of Miriam Gersdorf, aka @explore.hike.teach and our team will pick a total of 50 winners that will be revealed on December 9th. Only one prize per participant.
What if my friends want to participate too?
They are more than welcome to participate! One adventure = one entry. So the more adventures you create, the more chances you’ll have to win a prize!
When does the challenge start and end?
The #duoveoFALL challenge starts on October 7th and ends on November 12th.
We leave no trace
We love and respect Mother Nature. That’s why we follow the Seven Principles of Leave No Trace, an easily understood framework of minimum impact practices for anyone visiting the outdoors.
1. Who can play?
The “Promotion” is open to all the United States and Canada and to anyone older than 18 living in the United States. The “Promotion” excludes duoveo’s employees from entering the challenge.
2. What is an adventure?
Duoveo defines an “adventure” as a hike or track open to the public that is documented with pictures, videos, and relevant descriptions in the duoveo app. Any app user can create his/her own adventure, and all adventures are accessible to all the app users.
3. How do I enter?
After you download the application (iOS 7+ or Android 9+ supported), you will have to register. During the registration phase, several personal questions will be asked. Some are mandatory, and some are optional. For us to be able to contact you in the future, we will use your e-mail address. We recommend logging in via our app, if you decide to use Google, Facebook or Apple, make sure you allow them to share your personal e-mail address with us. If not, it will be tough to contact you. Now you are ready to go, you will need to submit your content (aka “adventure”) through the valid duoveo app account in the duoveo app and share it with the public.
Submissions must meet the requirements of the challenge to be eligible as below:
- 2 pictures uploaded minimum
- 1 video uploaded minimum
- The documented hike or track must be at least 1-mile long
- A 50-word minimum description of the hike is required
- Share the adventure on Instagram using #duoveoFALL (make sure your account is public, if it is not please send us a DM with a screenshot of your post to validate your entry)
- The track must be open to everyone (public)
On top of the minimum requirements described above, each entry will earn bonus points for any extra image and video added, for using descriptive icons, by indicating if the track is in full sun or sheltered by trees and by adding direction icons in the duoveo app, and any in-app engagement it will generate (likes).
Each adventure created by a participant will count as a unique entry with no limitation.
Further, we advise you to consult the judging criteria listed below. Also, please note no purchase will be necessary to enter.
Additional Submission Requirements:
By entering an adventure, you certify that pictures, videos and text are one’s original content, and the content does not infringe on any 3rd party’s rights. If 3rd parties (friends, family, strangers, or children) do appear in the videos or images shared in your adventures, we ask for you to receive permission to use their image.
No mail-in entries will be allowed, and any use of automatic programming to submit entries will be void. Finally, please ensure the adventure is appropriate and in line with duoveo’s brand—use your best judgment!

Finally, additional compensation is not expected, and duoveo will not be responsible for 3rd party’s use of your content. duoveo won’t sell any of your content or information to 3rd parties.
5. How does duoveo pick the winner?
We will rely on a panel of judges consisted of Miriam Gersdorf and duoveo’s team. This panel will pick each winner based on the particular criteria applicable for the Promotion emphasizing on the quality of the content produced. Luck will play no role in duoveo’s decision.
Be aware the judges will not be required to provide feedback on each adventure and reserve the right to disqualify any content which is improper, unlawful, or breaks any rules of the competition. A participant can win only one prize.
6. How will I find out if I win?
Duoveo will send the good news by email or direct message on Instagram. We promise to do our best to locate and communicate with you if you are the winner. If we cannot confirm your identity within three months or any other disputes arise, we will contact the next best entry.

Keep in mind the winners will be solely responsible for any and all applicable taxes for the prizes. Further, no substitution of prizes is permitted except if a prize is unavailable, and the winner is solely responsible for any incidental expenses.
