Black and White Winners!
We had some amazing entries this past week in the Black and White theme. You all did an awesome job!
One thing I learned while doing these contests in this new way where the winners will get upvotes instead of wallet payouts is that I need to make sure to start voting on the winners the night prior to the ending of the contest so that I make the payout window and I am still able to upvote the entries because there were two winning entries that I was not able to upvote, but I was still able to reward a comment that the photographers made under their entries. This is a learning process with this new way of doing the contest.
Black and White Photography
Saturday's theme is Black and White. Black and white photography is where it all started. This type of photography really focuses on capturing the essence of your subject and eliminating all of those colorful distractions. It enables you to really convey emotion in your images. It is more than just taking a picture of anything and desaturating it. Planning ahead and shooting your image for black and white can really help you when you are trying to become a better black and white photographer.
I am looking forward to seeing the images you all come up with for this theme. It is one of my favorites.
How is the Deranged Photography Contest set up?
The contest is broken up into three different tiers. Each will have a different rewards for the winners based on what tier you enter into. Here is a breakdown of the rewards based on the tiers:
|1st||100% Upvote||80% Upvote||60% Upvote|
|2nd||80% Upvote||60% Upvote||40% Upvote|
|3rd||60% Upvote||40% Upvote||30% Upvote|
Each contest will be open for submissions for 6 days and close on the 7th day so that winners can be picked and the new post can be made.

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.
That's pretty much it, drop a photo in the comment section of this post and state your tier. If you want to make a separate post for your entry as well, that is fine, but for your entry to be valid, your photo and tier must be in here in the comment section of this post. If you do make a separate post, be sure to use the #photography and #creativecoin tags.
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 which 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 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.
Thank you to everyone that will be participating. The contest wouldn't be around without your great submissions!
