Hello, hello. Hope you're ready for Steemit's two-dozenth edition of the Abandoned Shit Weekly Contest! We have a brand new theme for this week, which was inspired by some of the entires last week. I hope everyone finds something cool to post. I love seeing this sort of thing on the platform. OKay
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.
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.
This week's theme = Old Wood! Your entry should focus on old wood. Rotted, dry-rotted, mossy, moldy, whatever. Old wooden planks to a barn or a ship, maybe? The skeleton of a burnt-down building? A long forgotten covered bridge? There's tons of abandoned wood material out there, lets see what you find!
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!
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 used for this week's ASW contest logo. It's the skeletal remains of an old turf building in the Westfjords of Iceland. Some of these things date back centuries and, though I don't think this one dates back THAT far, I do feel it was plenty old.
