Photo Option 1

Photo Option 2

Participants can begin submitting their Apex Top Finds during the month of February 2021. For each month that follows, entries will be received from the first to the last day of that month. On or about the 10th day of the next month, Garrett will announce a winner—selected from everyone who entered during the previous month—on the Garrett website and on social media. The Apex Top Finds competition will run through December 31, 2021.

Anyone and everyone is encouraged to submit a personal Apex treasure hunting success story. To be eligible for selection as the monthly winner, the submitted find must have been made with an Apex metal detector.

Each month’s submissions will be reviewed by a select committee of Garrett employees. This group will vote on which photo and/or story is their favorite of the month. The find with the most committee votes will be named as the winner. The Apex find selected each month will not always be the rarest or most valuable find. A great story, with a great photo—or perhaps a great history lesson—might just be the one selected. If your find is not selected, please don’t feel discouraged. Feel free to submit a new find next month!

Each month’s winner will be featured on garrett.com, and on official Garrett social media apps, such as Facebook. Happy hunting and good luck!

  • No purchase is required. Simply submit your favorite Apex™ treasure hunting story, with appropriate photo or video, for a chance to be selected.
  • Please do not submit the same Apex™ find more than once. Feel free, however, to submit new discoveries as you make them.
  • These can be submitted via any of the three options described above.
  • Stories and photos submitted between the first and last day of each month will be reviewed by the in-house Garrett committee after the last date of each month. The team will post the selected winner around the 10th day of the following month on the www.garrett.com website and on Garrett's social media.
  • Garrett will contact the chosen winner to select from one of the two prize options described under “What Can I Win?” Please include your address and phone number with your Apex Top Finds submission. Your address and phone number will not be published.
  • By submitting your find entry, you are authorizing Garrett to use your testimonial for future social media postings, website display, inclusion in future catalogs, or other marketing materials.
  • For any Apex customer who submits a new story and photo or video, Garrett will ship a thank-you item.

For finds with Garrett Metal Detectors other than Apex, please submit to Vaughan's Favorite Finds.
