NEW Theme! Abandoned Shit Weekly Contest - №.23 - 'Rust.' #aswcontest

4년 전

It's that time again - time for a new week of abandoned shit! We have a new theme that we haven't done yet, so I'm super excited to see what you guys post/find. Enough jibber jabber, lets get right into it!

The Contest:

This is NOT a photography contest. The subject matter is what's being judged with the Abandoned Shit Weekly contest, not one's skills with a camera. Honestly, I just want to see some cool abandoned shit. lol HOWEVER, as with any photograph, the "wow factor" can certainly be enhanced with a technically sound execution. Simply put, winners won't be chosen strictly on artistry!

The Prizes:

1st Place = 50% SBD payout from this AND contest reminder posts.
2nd Place = 35% SBD payout from this AND contest reminder posts.
3rd Place = 15% SBD payout from this AND contest reminder posts.

The Theme:

This week's theme = RUST! Your entry should be heavily rusted. It can be anything made out of rusty metal. Vehicles, fences, chain, etc. Whatever it is, rust should be the one of the main features of your entry.

The Rules:

Rule #1 = Your abandoned shit photo must be posted using the tag #aswcontest for one of your tags. This is crucial so that your entry can be seen/found! Dropping it's link in the comments also helps.

Rule #2 = Your photo must be taken by YOU. If you take an imagine from the internet and use it as your entry into this contest, you will be disqualified and I will flag you.

Rule #3 = Only ONE entry per user, per week. Save some content for future contests! However, multiple images of the SAME object or place in your entry post is OK.

Rule #4 = Tell us what we're looking at! You don't have to write a novel, but let us know what the picture is of, and where you found it. That's the most interesting part! Equipment and camera settings can be included at your discretion, but is not necessary.

Rule #5 = Stick to the weekly theme!

The Time:

When = New ASW contests will start on TUESDAYS and will end at 11:59pm EST on SUNDAY. Winners will be announced on Monday. Rewards will be distributed once the post pays out.


HELP! - I'd really like this contest to become an established, weekly feature. Resteeming the official contest announcement post here would be a huge help in getting the word out, though you do not HAVE to in order to participate in the contest. I'm just asking as a favor. Also, just mentioning the contest in/on your entry post would help a lot!
Also, an UPVOTE on this post would be appreciated; so as only to make the prize pool larger for the contest. Thank you, guys!

^^^Here's the photo I chose for this week's logo. We came across a bunch of rusty abandoned tools in a field in Iceland during the winter of 2016. Not sure what the story behind them was. These things had to have cost a lot of money at one point!

I just have read your post and I am very curious to join it. I just have a few questions.... I will be very happy if you kindly help me with the answers!

  1. Do every contest lasts for 7 days? I mean entry to this contest will be valid until the payout of this post?
  2. I generally do mobile photography posts and I do not have a digital camera, are pictures taken from low quality cameras eligible for this contest?
  3. Do I have to put my entry post link in the comments?

Thats it... Stay well and keep doing the contests..

Sure thing!

    • The contest actually lasts 6 days. A theme is announced Tuesday and the latest to enter is Sunday at 11:59 new york time. That's the deadline. Winners are announced Monday.
    • Yes, mobile phone photos are fine. It's not a photography contest.
    • You don't have to put a link in the comments, but it helps if something happens and I'm late on judging the entries, or something. Makes them a lot easier to find and not be missed.

Thanks for the help mate... I will particiapte for sure!

ASW Contest #23 - Rust - Strangelove/The Horse of the Apocalypse

That was a trip for a special steam-punk style photoshoot. MINISKY SPOT place was chosen on purpose, because they have brought two old-mobiles there, rusty and just perfect for such kind of photos.
So here is the series of photos showing one of them with perfect yellow-red rust, most amazing at the golden hour which we were trying to catch.

Guess the owners are just huge fans of DEPECHE MODE. This metal plate with STRANGELOVE sign just says it. Being the fan of DM for many years, this car is something more special for me even :D

Nice contest! resteemed and upvoted!

My entry is complete now, and I did make sure to give you a shout-out in the body of the post! I have tried running contests on steemit in the past, so I wish you the best of luck on yours!

Hello, everyone. That's my participation. I hope you enjoy it.
Good luck for everyone.

Couldn't resist joining this week with some of the old rusted yard art we found when we moved in. Here is my post:

Awww, would have taken a pic of our faucet but it's not from anywhere abandoned so... 😂 Maybe when I see something else outside.
