CALLING ALL ARTISTS!! The time has come for the follow up design contest for @hempress and I's collaborative art project. The @tribesteemup design contest was a smashing success, with numerous quality entries and a LARGE prize pool, where I was able to give away 90 SBD to the winners!! Since TSU will be supporting this part of the project as well, we should see a similar prize pool for this contest also.
Entry is simple: up-vote & re-steem this post, create a post with your stylized or new version of the #anarchapulco logo, & link your entry post in the comments of this post. It is also encouraged that you include a photo with your link when you make your entry comment, and include something along the lines of "Anarchapulco Design Contest Entry Post" in the title of your post. You can of course add more language to your post title besides that.
As stated in the title, this contest is not exclusive to people that will be attending, or are involved in the #anarchapulco conference. This contest is open to anyone with artistic ability and passion within them. So please sculpt a piece of magic with your mind's eye and body's extremities and submit it! I cannot wait to see what all you beautiful people come up with again!
I am keeping a very open mind about the designs entered in this contest. I am not exactly sure what to expect from all you amazing artists, but there are a couple things I would like you to keep in mind when creating. You can either make your own brand new original version of the #anarchapulco logo, or you can draw your inspiration from the current #anarchapulco logo and make a stylized version of that. I have received permission from @jeffberwick on the latter as well, so rest assured you will not be in violation of any rules if you do choose to base your design off the original logo. Hand made art and digital renditions are both acceptable mediums of entry for this contest.
I would like to see more detail and creativity in the designs entered in this contest - nothing against the current design, I just feel this logo has a lot of room to grow. It is important, however, that it is apparent that the logo you create is for #anarchapulco.
The design I feel to be the best for this project, and the conference overall, will be chosen as the winner, however - there will be at least 1st-3rd place prizes, if not also a 4th place prize like in the last contest. There is NO LIMIT on the amount of entries one person can submit, so please, art your heart out with as many entries as you like.
I will write a second article next week that will announce the top five entries, where everyone will be encouraged to show their support for which design they like the best out of the five. The number of positive mentions expressed for each post in the comments will be strongly considered upon picking the winner, but ultimately I will be making the final selection. If finalists desire to update their design slightly during this period they may do so, and I reserve the right to select more or less than five entries for the tops picks.
It is highly likely that the design I pick will coincide with the design the community selects, but since the design that wins will be going into a collaborative project that I am managing, and to avoid the possibility of someone winning with popularity over skill, it is important that I pick the winning design personally. I am basically reserving the right to override if either situation arises, and could very well leave the final two entries up to a community vote if there is another close call like in the @tribesteemup contest.
100% of the STEEM & SBD payouts from AT LEAST the first three posts related to this contest (including this one) will be combined into SBD, and donated to the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place winners, with 1st place getting the majority of it. If for some reason these post do not pay out well however, then I will be guaranteeing the following prize MINIMUMS that I will pay out of pocket if necessary.
First Place will receive AT LEAST 25 SBD & have their design featured in a collaborative community art project.
Second & Third Place will receive AT LEAST 10 SBD each.
I anticipate the prizes will be much higher than this as they were in the last contest, however I want to reserve minimum prize payouts just in case. Remember we were able to give away 90 SBD in my last design contest.

"Are you ready to own yourself? Take ownership of your freedom, supercharge your health, and make the world a better place (and that’s just before breakfast)! The media, big pharma, the banks, governments, and the rest of the global elite want you to think they are your saviors, and the only way the world “works” is if they have their hands in everything. For example, they want to dictate how you spend your money and what money you use, control what you put in your body, regulate how to raise your children, and control how you generally live your life" (1). They want us to be good cattle that blindly accepts unjust orders and accept unequal and unfair distributions of wealth and services.
"But you have woken up, and so have thousands around the world. You’ve realized that you don’t need THEM telling you what to do. You can make your own decisions about what’s right for you, your children, and your health… and you’re becoming healthier, wealthier, and wiser because of it.
That is why February 14th - 19th, 2019 the largest gathering of freethinkers, voluntarists, libertarians, and Anarcho-capitalists ever will meet in Acapulco, Mexico, where our unparalleled line up of speakers will discuss entrepreneurship, investments, cryptos, politics, philosophy, health, sustainability, lifestyles, and personal relationships for four days among the sun and beaches of a world-class resort (The Princess Hotel).
The only way to win the fight for self ownership is when we work together and when you learn the latest information, tools, and strategies you need in your fight for freedom. Besides, you want to have a good time, and if you’ve heard anything about Anarchapulco 2018, you know attendees described it as life-altering fun (I can attest to that personally)… and this year will be much bigger. So big, we’re taking over the spectacular Princess Hotel for four full days of learning, networking, partying, and more.
In fact, #anarchapulco 2018 was so popular, that three world class keynote speakers have already been secured for 2019. Confirmed keynotes include Libertarian Ron Paul who’s returning for an encore engagement, the famous Anarcho-capitalist Investor Doug Casey, and Fox Senior News Analyst and Libertarian personality Judge Napalitano, and many more amazing speakers to be announced in the coming months.
At this life-changing event, you’ll develop the skills you need to take ownership of your own life and if you want, make a big difference in the world. You’ll also have an amazing time partying, sitting on the beach, swimming in the pool, and exploring beautiful Acapulco, Mexico" (1).
We had so many phenomenal entries in the last design contest it was ridiculous, and I highly encourage everyone that participated in the @tribesteemup design contest to please also participate in this one. In fact, the final two designs for TSU were so good that there was a split decision among the tribe between the two designs, and had to leave the final selection up to a community vote. Even then, the results were still very close, and deservingly so. I can only hope that there will be an equally hard decision to make in this contest.
Also remember that any entry made in this contest could potentially be used by myself and/or others after this contest concludes. We would appreciate all artist's permission to use the logos submitted here if possible. Thank you in advance.
So its time to get on with the bad-assery again artist-steemians, and bring forth your talent to the table for free publicity, a chance at winning SBD, and a chance at getting your design into a bigger collaborative art project! Blessings my friends, stay tuned into the right frequencies, & GOOD LUCK!!
