Let's make a collage - A contest for all Creatives on Steem

in #art6 years ago (edited)


Greetings Steemians!

With a total of 13 submissions I was happy to see that my last Let's make a collage - contest was well received. Not only were there many exciting contributions, but also a lot of Steemians who engaged with their comments and upvotes to help determining the winners.

So before we go into the next round let us first congratulate the two winners of last week:

@miroslavrc @astrophoto.kevin

Both winners received 5 SBD and a well deserved 100% upvote on their awesome submissions.

Do you have what it takes to be the next winner?

So let's do this again!

What do you see in this photography that is not yet there? A mole who remodels the meadow according to his needs? A crack in the ground from which an earth spirit rises? Or a crowd of Christmas elves who are in a hurry to get their work done?

(click here for high-res version)

Let your creativity run wild and transform the image into whatever you want to see. Your imagination is the only limit (and the tools that you can command).


  • First place: 5 SBD and one 100% upvote
  • Second place: 2 SBD and a 50% upvote
  • Third place: 1 SBD and a 20% upvote

The decision about the winners will be based on my subjective choice. Upvotes and comments by the community will be considered!

Usually i do Photomanipulations in Photoshop on Pc but this time i used my iPad and worked with Procreate.



It was an massacre! xD

This is absolutely great! Congrats to your first place!

Glad to hear that, thanks :)

I like your idea for the story! Beginning with the @shaka foto in totally peace ... the "war against nature" is over and nothing reminds on it. Just a spot ? ( my english is not so good ) into the past... and everything changes. There are many examples in reality for similar situations: Not showing what is behind the scene...

it makes sence for looking into the future, too. Everything is looking fine - and suddenly something happens, which changes your life...

Good story! Thank you

Ich habe gerade auf deinem Blog gesehen, dass ich auch deutsch hätte schreiben können... hihi, ich hoffe es ist verständlich, ich lasse es jetzt. Und alles nur, weil shaka englisch geantwortet hat ;-) Lieben Gruß Kadna

Hehe ja auf Deutsch schreiben macht es definitiv einfacher. Du hast da eine echt schöne und treffende Interpretation verfasst. Ich habe tatsächlich als idee gehabt die "vergangenheit", naja sagen wir mal eine im entfernesten mögliche Vergangenheit darzustellen.

🥇Congratulations @bronkong, you won the first place in this contest!! 👏

You have nicely picked up the shrubs and the wooden branch as the template's core elements and used them with impressive creativity to develop alien tree creatures which engage in a phantasmagoric battle scene. Awesome!

5 SBD are on the way to your wallet. In addition, your submission receives a 100% upvote.

I hope to see you joining the next contest again!

Thank you, im very happy about the first place. This contest was a nice motivation to do some photomanipulation because its been a while since i did this..and it was fun!

Thank you @shaka for providing this creativity contest!

hello @shaka , this is my entry , with my whales of watercolor paintings



🥈Congratulations @li-art, you won the second place in this contest!! 👏

You placed beautifully painted whale spirits into the setting. The shadows that you added as well as the more distant whales created an enchanting scene with depth and animation. A great piece of work!

2 SBD are on the way to your wallet. In addition, your submission receives a 50% upvote.

I hope to see you joining the next contest again!

Amazing idea for a contest @shaka, the starting photo leaves room for creativity and imagination. A lot of surreal and funny situations in my entry, a gif animation titled It was a quite day.


🥉Congratulations @georgeboya, you won the third place in this contest!! 👏

With impressive skills and great imagination you picked up a key element of the template and developed a narrative out of it. Your short film tells a story as funny as it is bizarre. And it get's more astonishing with every element added :) Great artwork!

1 SBD is on the way to your wallet. In addition, your submission receives a 25% upvote.

I hope to see you joining the next contest again!

Thank you very much @shaka😊 I am looking forward for more contests😊😊

Definitely looks better with Saturn...click image for large version.


Is that the view while staying on Enceladus?
The terraforming has made great steps forward :-)

Yes and we managed to make it look remarkably similar to Shaka's neighbourhood :)

Definitely yes. Saturn is a fantastic fit to the scenery.

Thank you for this cool submission!

No probs @shaka . Good idea for a contest...and I see I just missed your puzzle post :( Never mind next time!

Thats me taking a look at the sunset:


Thank you for your submission and for contributing this great scenery @obvious!

I hope to see you contributing the next time again!

The last round was fun so I am excited to participate this time too :) I think Chichen Itza, the iconic ancient Mayan landmark, fits pretty nicely to your grassland :D (I just wish my hand was not so shaky when doing the cut-out manually :D)


And this is the original photo I took at Chichen Itza, Mexico last year.


Thanks for hosting this fun contest @shaka!

Thank you for your submission @phortun. Really an impressive construction. Would love to have a look at it in real life.

Thank you for your submission and for sharing the process with us. Great idea and beautiful outcome.

I hope to see you contributing next time again!
