*** Remembering the Forgotten ***
Hi everyone! Like 2/3 of the people here on Steemit, I have decided to host my own contest. lol I know there is a lot of contests all over the platform... in fact, my brother @kommienezuspadt made the joke that he was going to host a "Best Contest" contest.
ANYWAY, as many know, I'm a big nature enthusiast. That being said, I love coming across places where nature is reclaiming works of man. Abandoned houses, buildings, vehicles, parks, zoo, etc. Maybe its because in those moments, it seems like a rare instance where nature is winning. Also, I feel like a lot of people have a fascination with abandoned places. There's a whole "urban exploration" genre of youtube videos that feature exactly this. I'm aiming to get a little more of this stuff into the Steemit world.
Post your photos of abandoned shit! It can be of houses, vehicles, parks, cities... anything abandoned. This is NOT a photography contest. The subject matter is what's being judged with the Abandoned Shit Weekly contest, not one's skills with a camera. Honestly, I just want to see some cool abandoned shit. lol HOWEVER, as with any photograph, the "wow factor" can certainly be enhanced with a technically sound execution. Simply put, winners won't be chosen strictly on artistry.
1st Place = 20.000 SBD
2nd Place = 10.000 SBD
3rd Place = 5.000 SBD
Rule #1 = Your abandoned shit photo must be posted using the tag #aswcontest for one of your tags. This is crucial so that your entry can be seen/found!
Rule #2 = Your photo must be taken by YOU.
Rule #3 = Only ONE entry per user, per week. Save some content for future contests!
Rule #4 = Tell us what we're looking at! You don't have to write a novel, but let us know what the picture is of, and where you found it. That's the most interesting part! Equipment and camera settings can be included at your discretion, but is not necessary.
When = New ASW contests will start on TUESDAYS and will end on SUNDAY. Winners will be announced on Monday with awards distributed then as well. I figure it's a good way to start the week!
HELP! - I'd really like this contest to become an established, weekly feature. Resteeming the official contest announcement post here would be a huge help in getting the word out, though it is not necessary to participate in the contest. I'm just asking as a favor.
That's it! Let's see some cool abandoned stuff! Good Luck!
^^^This is the photo used for the ASW Contest logo. It was taken in this awesome, abandoned 5 star hotel that we found on a mountain top in the Azores.
