Street Photography


Street photography is back!! This is one of my favorites. The coolest thing about street photography is catching the soul and essence of a place and telling the story about it in a picture. When they say a picture is worth a thousand words, they are talking about street photography. In a good street photography picture it tells a story. So go out and capture stories for all of us in your photographs. We are all looking forward to seeing them.

How is the Deranged Photography Contest set up?


The contest will be broken up into three different tiers. Each will have a different payout for the winners based on what tier you enter into. Here is a breakdown of the winning based on the tiers:

1st1.25 SBD1 SBD1 SBD
2nd0.75 SBD0.5 SBD0.5 SBD
3rd0.5 SBD0.25 SBD0.25 SBD

Each contest will be open for submissions for 5 days after the post is made and then closes at 0100 UTC (1800 MST) on the 5th day.

This will give me and any guest judges time to judge the submissions and create the post announcing the winners.

How to enter


When you enter a photo in the competition, you will state what tier you want to be judged in and locked in for the month at that level.

For example if you enter a photo, you drop the photo in the comment section, state what level of photographer you are, and then give a description of the photograph.

If you want to make your own post and reference the contest in your post, that would be awesome, just remember to post your picture in the comment section along with your post link. Who knows, you may get a visit and an upvote on your post as well as an upvote on the picture. Use the tag #derangedphotography to make it easy to find your posts.

Additional Notes


  • Only one submission per contest. Extra submissions will be ignored.

  • You can switch your tier ONE time per month, but only if you are moving up into a higher tier, for example if you are currently in the amateur tier, but you think that you have a photograph that you want to enter in the professional tier, you can state that you are changing your tier to professional. You will then be locked into the new tier for the remainder of the month. You are not able to move down to a lower tier, like going from amateur to the beginner tier.

  • If you do not state wish tier you want to be judged in for the month, I will leave a comment to remind you to do so, but if you don't respond, you will be assigned to a tier and locked in for that month.

  • Plagiarism will not be tolerated in any form. All submissions must be your own work. I will investigate every entry and one of the main sponsors is the @steemcleaners team, so if you are caught plagiarizing, not only will you be blacklisted from competing from any future contests, but you will be reported to @steemcleaners as well. It is not worth it to try and cheat, especially with the 3 tier set up where everyone has an equal shot of winning.

Who are the amazing sponsors?


One major sponsor to the contests is @pfunk. For those that don't know @pfunk is a very active witness on the platform that is doing a lot behind the scenes to ensure that your user experience is a smooth one.

@pfunk aids in the process of new account set ups, a big part of Steemit Chat, and a part of the @steemcleaners team. @pfunk also is a huge supporter of the Open Mic contests run by @luzcypher.

You should seriously consider casting a witness vote for @pfunk.

Another major sponsor is @czechglobalhosts. For those that don't know, @czechglobalhosts puts on two daily photo contests that are open to anyone to enter. His contests cover the entire globe so that anyone can enter. The days and themes are:

  • Australian Monday
  • Antarctica and World's Oceans Tuesday
  • African Wednesday
  • European Thursday
  • North American Friday
  • South American Saturday
  • Asian Sunday

On top of the themed daily continent contests, he hosts a daily travel contests specific to the beautiful country of the Czech Republic. So make sure to follow @czechglobalhosts and participate in his contests because he is offering two daily photography contests that you can enter to win.

The other sponsors I have are @guiltyparties and the @steemcleaners team. @guiltyparties and everyone else behind @steemcleaners does so much for the platform as a whole, trying to reduce the spammers, phishing and plagiarism that goes on here. If you have any free slots for witness votes you should consider casting a vote for @guiltyparties, vote for @patrice, vote for @anyx, vote for @pfunk, vote for @pjau, and vote for @arcange. Your votes for these great witnesses go a long way in ensuring the platform continues to thrive.

Now get out and start shooting


I hope you are all excited about this new contest. The contest themes will be different than what you are used to seeing on Steemit, and I am doing this to encourage everyone to get out and shoot new pictures. If you are a life long professional nature photographer, some of the themes may push you to try and learn something new. If you are just a beginner photographer, this is a great place to have fun shooting all sorts of exciting styles and learn in the process.

This is a moment I captured in front of the Central Market in Cambodia's capital city, Phnom Penh. To these boys, all the hustle and bustle around didn't seem to exist.

P.S. Seems the uploaded images have been compressed by Steemitimages since today. So it might be better to view the photo on other front-ends or apps such as steempeak,, esteem, partiko...

It's a great theme! Here's my entry for the Amateur level contest:

This beautiful church stands on our street almost opposite to my house.
It's beautiful inside and out, and at any time of the year!
There are always a lot of people there, especially on holidays.


Cool theme, I haven´t competed in a while! :) Here is my entry. I am sure it is very familiar to you but for those who haven´t been to Krakow yet - this is the Church of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven (Saint Mary's Church) - majestic Brick Gothic church adjacent to Main Market Square in historic center of the city.


I took this shot on a lovely summer morning on the weekend this year. It´s from a place where there is a flea market every weekend. And flea market means lots of people and lots of different emotions, but mostly happy people.


I took this amazing frame with pigeons in Krakow. tier Amateur



I love seeing pictures from this spot! I was right on the other corner of the fountain when i took this picture.


I loved Krakow and I can't wait to go back.


This area with pigeons is fantastic! In black and white it looks a masterpiece!

Your shots of Krakow are absolutely stunning. Inspiring me to get out of my living room and go explore those places all over again, haha. The following is my submission for the Pro level contest, story to follow:
Old Bagan, Myanmar.

Reason for submission: this is street photography. How so? I don't see anyone around. No one is walking these "streets" that I can see.
And that is precisely my point. That is what makes this picture so stunning for me. Because once, many ages ago, these were not ruins. These were not empty, desolate places. Once, ages ago, these streets positively bustled with life. Much as we see in your Krakow pics, these streets once felt the footfalls of merchants, priests, and commoners alike.
Now they are desolate. Now they remind us of life's fragility in the face of time.

I will go out now and take a good shot.Thank you @derangedvisions

great shot!!

Hello, beautiful photographs. Greetings

A thousand crystalline (de)lights are shining in the famous ˋBahnhofstraße´ in Zürich...! Forever one of my most beloved places especially during Christmas-time ~ 🌟 ~

I love street photography, especially when I travel! This is a picture from my recent trip to Portugal. It is shot from a window of the famous tram 28, the vintage means of transportation of Lisbon which carries you across the city center for a sightseeing tour with style :)
More about this trip here!


I have used this shot for the 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge too. I hope you don't mind Wess, it just fitted perfectly to your new theme :)
