Given the tolerances of the QR Code format, and given the large number of human settlements on Earth, there must be many aerial or satellite photographs which, when offered to a QR code-aware software, will take you to a website.

Proposed, therefore, is a competition to find such hidden codes. Top prize (which I have generously allowed [8th] to provide) goes to the finder of the accidental QR code which links to the most appropriate website (for instance, perhaps finding that a housing complex in Basingstoke is an inadvertent QR code linking to a website campaigning for assisted suicide).

Town planners and farmers will be ineligible.

       Hmmm. I hadn't thought of stars, but a negative image...if the stars were defocussed enough...maybe.

       For sake of efficiency, I suggest that the scanner ignore any lack of the requisite QR indicia, form hyperlinks of anything it scans, and follow said hyperlinks automatically without user confirmation.

       It would be interesting to survey the sky in order to find a QR code. Could be a contemporary form of astrology.

       This would be an amazingly devious clue in some prize puzzle books...there was a spate of them, once...you know...where you read some weird clues and had to find real locations.
