Photo Contest: Get "Lost!"

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 1:50 p.m. HST, Sep 2, 2014

Get "Lost" in our photo scavenger hunt celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 22, 2004, premiere of the ABC series that became an obsession for millions of fans around the globe. Use these clues to identify eight "Lost" locations on Oahu and then take a selfie at each spot (exteriors are fine).

Post your selfie photos on Instagram or on the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Facebook page using the hashtag #HSALost. The deadline for posting photos is Sept. 16.

A $42 cash prize and four Consolidated Theatres passes will be awarded to the "Lostie" who gets to the most locations. (Ties will be determined by a drawing.) A $42 cash prize and plush Star-Advertiser beach towel will be awarded for the most creatively staged "Lost" selfie (determined by Star-Advertiser judges). All contest participants will be eligible for 15 other prizes to be awarded in a drawing.

Winners will be announced in the Today section Sept. 23 as part of our special coverage of the "Lost" anniversary.

By participating in our "Get 'Lost'" contest, you are granting the Honolulu Star-Advertiser permission to publish your name and photos in print and online free of charge. For more information, email

The 8 "Lost" Locations

1. Lovebirds Jin and Sun were married at the father-of-the-bride's lavish estate in Korea. But you'll only have to travel to Windward Oahu where you'll find it among the temples.

2. It wasn't much of a stretch for this Kakaako facility to portray the medical research laboratory where Juliet worked before being recruited by Richard Alpert.

3. Oh, brutha, where art thou? Training in the house of the warriors for an around-the-world sailing race, of course!

4. Push came to shove when John Locke tumbled out of a window at this landmark Waikiki high-rise, courtesy of his ne'er-do-well dad.

5. "Lost" producers were happy campers when they found this 20-acre seaside property that became home to the Dharma Initiative, The Others and New Otherton.

6. Kate stopped by this diner to see her mom after blowing up her house with her father in it — but left without ordering Coco Puffs to go.

7. Even though a meteorite destroyed Hurley's fast-food restaurant, you can still get chicken on Dillingham.

8. Old friends were welcomed with open arms at this gateway to heaven in Kaimuki.
