Posting this late tonight, but posting nonetheless! Abandoned Shit Weekly is back for it's 25th edition. We have a brand new theme for this week and I can't wait to see what kinda stuff gets posted. Let's dive in!
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 = GRAFFITI! Your subject/photo must have a heavy focus on graffiti. I've come across lots of cool abandoned stuff in our travels, and lots of it bares markings of artistic local vandals; especially near urban areas. Let's shine the spotlight on that this week, shall we? Not just graffiti though.... graffiti on an abandoned object.
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 chose for this week's logo. It was taken in the east of Iceland. The remains of this old, concrete farm building had a bunch of paintings on it, including that somewhat creepy/ghostly face on the 2nd floor.
