Bananafish - Story & Poetry Contest Winners!


Raise your glasses brave adventurers, we have our winners!


Our wonderful tribe has done us proud, and really lived up to the sentiments running through all of our entries. What an incredible round, you rallied together, braved the storms and my word, we had some adventures. There was laughter, tears of happiness, seat gripping, and sheer exclamation when it came to reading them, and have to say, you all went above and beyond, and sincerely did the @bananafish proud - our yellow fishy heart swelled up!!

From brilliant haiku's capturing so much of what we do in such an appropriate amount of words, to crazy adventures featuring members of the tribe, heart felt odes, soulful epic poems, to incredibly inspired stories showcasing our values in all sorts of ways, and even a poem inspired by Quest In The Realms, every single entry was so very enjoyable. Thank you all so much!

The Winners

The real winner here was clearly @bananafish, for there is no gift greater than the one you all gave us <3 but that said, we do have winners, it was so very hard to decide, and we had a whole panel to try and make it easier! (it didn't, all the entries were just too good!) @calluna here, a huge thank you to @theironfelix @gaby-crb and @brisby who consulted on our winners, in the end we had to limit ourselves to one honourable mention per category as otherwise we would just end up listing you all!

Thank you, it was a pleasure to read all the wonderful entries <3


We were honored with your lovely Potassium poem, Adncabrera! Hugs to you as well for the gift of your words!

I know you had a really tough job judging these entries! Wow we have some talented people swimming in the realm! Anyway, thank you for the prize on my poem, I'm very honored, and I meant every word of that poem so it was easy to write!


Awww thank you, i really had to fight tears when i read your entry, it was so moving to see how much this has meant to everyone, not just me <3


Well thank you for letting me know my poem did it's job! Without these contests and getting to know all you wonderful people who spend so much time on these fun contests I probably would have given up on STEEM in the beginning!

You're most welcome, Oivas! Thanks to all of you in our awesome tribe, we had a blessed Easter. 🤗

Hey! Congratulation to all winners!!!

BTW is jadams2k18 not jkadams2k18... Although J K Adams doesn't sound bad at all.

Many blessings to all the team @bananafish that brings us together and that make this contest a reality and to all the participants, because without them there would not exist either.

And of course, all our sponsors!!!

Have a Great Day Everybody!!!


awww dude I am so sorry! yeah i think i just decided a long time ago, i wanted to call you J K Adams, but I normally catch it and correct it before I post!

we'll just say I was too distracted by your awesome entry ;) thank you very much!


Don't worry, you can call me any way you like, baby!


Oop! Sorry about the misspell, Jadams2k18, and thank you for letting us know. 😎
