The event was very well received by all attendees. I was very happy that the last minute request was agreed to.

Challenge your team to become pop culture paparazzi in this entertaining group activity

If you’re looking for a unique, budget-friendly, and entertaining indoor team building activity that fully engages your team, say hello to Paparazzi Challenge!

Paparazzi Challenge is an exciting group activity that mixes pop culture and current affairs to immerse your group into the Hollywood glam lifestyle! Challenge your group to snap candid photos of each other and conquer celebrity-inspired challenges, and watch as teams scramble to reach the top of the leaderboard.

The activity is fun and effective for groups of all sizes, and is a great way to encourage outside the box thinking and build stronger relationships in an informal setting.

How the activity works:

On event day, participants can access and complete entertaining challenges, right on their smartphones. Each Hollywood-inspired challenge has specific instructions, and will need to be photographed for proof. Participants could find themselves creating a makeshift tuxedo out of toilet paper for the red carpet, or building a celebrity cover story out of leftover magazines. Whatever the challenge, teams will need to get truly creative to earn big points.

All of the completed photos are uploaded and can be viewed in real time on the smartphone app. As teams upload photos, they earn points based on how difficult the challenge is. Sometimes the difficulty is in staging the photo itself, while other challenges might be difficult because of time constraints.

Event Overview & Features

Paparazzi Challenge is suited to any indoor location and any group size. The activity uses supplies that are easily available in most office environments, such as cups, paper, pens, toilet paper etc. Teams will need to use their skills in communication, problem solving, strategy, and creativity in order to succeed. It’s a great way for individuals to work as a team and to get to know each other's strengths. The activity can take place over a few hours, or over several days. Paparazzi Challenge is flexible, and can be tailored to meet your needs.

  • About Your Group

    Your team has a sense of adventure and likes to experience something unique. Your group is always looking for new ways to improve communication, encourage "out of the box thinking" and strengthen existing relationships. You enjoy a little competition but want to keep the overall atmosphere friendly, inclusive and supportive. Ideally you can mix different people and departments to break down communication barriers and really help your group come together as a cohesive unit.

    "We loved that we were able to tailor the event to suit our team, our timing, our location, and our budget. People really worked together as a team for the success of the group. The game was an amazing ice breaker and the group broke some typical cliques/hierarchy levels for the after event at Real Sports. I was amazed to see how the seating plan shifted as a result!"

    - Omers

    "It was a great ice breaker for our two-day retreat. The event encouraged team work between people who have known each other for over 20 years as well as people who were meeting for the first time. It was well organized and inclusive for all of our staff (despite the differences in ages and fitness levels). It also helped emphasize that work is supposed to be fun."
