Now, let's see the contest!

I posted yesterday a list of the submitted artworks, for the 3 categories (1. Self-portrait; 2. Painting; 3. Digital art).

For the 1st category, Self-Portrait, here are the selected artworks:












It's a hard selection to do! Not only because it's always hard to make a choice, but also because these are self-portraits, the most sensitive and subjective of the artworks, for an artist! :)

 A special mention for  @billyjohnsonart,  "Self Abstraction" 2.12.2008 - Ink Pen On Wood Glossed - 61.5in x 29.75in - that will receive 5 Steem

Anyway, here is the winner:

I hope no one will feel let down or disappointed for these results. I did my best! You all do know this contest is mostly a way to share around your artworks and to let artists on Steemit know each other. 

Steemit is a great community for artists. We know it. So I would invite the partecipants to share the contest in their web contacts and social media, so to attract more artists here.

Ok, get ready for the next ArtTrail Contest (in a few days, I think)


The first category for the 5th Art-Trail Contest will be a classical subject in Art:

Human body - Nude - Anatomy

Wow! Wow! Wow!!! This is so impressive. What incredible entries -- all of them. Steemit really has some magnificent creators. I'm so grateful for this platform to share our inspirations and create community. I'm so glad I don't have to choose winners. This must have been incredibly difficult.

I want to share also that @sflaherty runs Steemit Blogger Central on FB and twitter. Check out his post--he loves the arts and will be a great supporter of these types of initiatives.


Impressive all portraits presented, difficult choice.
Congratulations to the winners and @art-trail for the initiative.

Is sculpture accepted as a medium?


we did a category Sculpture in one of the past edition, but it always hard to find sculptors ;)

Thanks again for organizing these; great work!. Look forward to submitting more next time:)


Congratulations to the winners!

Ohhhh thanks you!I'm one of the fortunates!!!! 👏👏👏👏🙏❤

Hi @paolobeneforti! Thanks for this!
I'm trying to follow your instructions here, but I have no clue how to do this:

"post the OpenLedger username and the Steemit username in the open-ledger-accounts channel on Discord SteemTrail"

Do you have some more elaborated how-to-instructions please? I'm a newbie here! :)


Hi @paolobeneforti! thank you so much!!
Unfortunately I have no idea how to claim for the tokens :(
Could you please help me?


you have to
1 create an account on openledger
2 post your openledger and steem username in discord --> https://discordapp.com/channels/237494690100936704/260548877055295499


..ok, I opened my openledger account and also an account in discordapp. But then I don't know how/where to post my usernames in discord :(
I tried, let me know if it worked :(


the discord channel to post your steem and openledger username is this https://discordapp.com/channels/237494690100936704/260548877055295499
that's open-ledger-account-add.
I don't know if you have added it already: what is your OpenLedger username?
(btw, the 250 trail tokens for the winners are worth just a couple of dollars, as far as I know. I just manage the contest, but I'm not the owner of the trail or of the tokens. :))

Super Pictures ))))
