NEW Theme! Abandoned Shit Weekly Contest - №.10 - 'In the Woods!' #aswcontest

in #aswcontest3 years ago


Whew! It's time to shake off those heebie-jeebies from last week's "graveyards" ASWContest theme and move on to week №.10. Around 5 days ago I made a post for everyone to vote on the next theme and the winner is..... "In the Woods!" Let's dive right in:

The Contest:

  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.  

The Prizes:

1st Place = 10.000 SBD
2nd Place = 5.000 SBD
3rd Place = 2.500 SBD

The Theme:

This week's theme = In the Woods! The abandoned subjects in your photo must be found in the woods/forest/jungle. This theme once again appeals to my nature enthusiast side. I love seeing nature reclaim products of man. The abandoned things this week can be anything... just just need to be in a heavily wooded location.

The Rules:

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. If you take an imagine from the internet and use it as your entry into this contest, you will be disqualified and I will flag 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.

Rule #5 = Stick to the weekly theme!. 

The Time:

When = New ASW contests will start on TUESDAYS and will end at 11:58pm EST 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 you do not HAVE to in order to participate in the contest.  I'm just asking as a favor.  Also, just mentioning the contest in/on your entry post would help a lot!

^^^Here's the photo used for the contest logo above. It was an old concrete built house we came across in the Azores on the island of Sao Miguel. It was in a sub-tropical type of rainforest climate so plant growth was booming. I wish I could tell you more about the house, but I know nothing of it's history.

Love the theme, resteemed to help give some extra exposure.

Thanks! I appreciate the resteem. I've been running out of the SBD I usually use to promote the posts. :-/

Anytime. Think this is the 3rd or 4th one I resteemed. It's a great contest and wish I could offer more help in the way of promoting it.

Can't wait for the weather to break and be out in places where I can take photos for this contest. Lost all my old photos when a computer died and we then found out the backup drive I was using got corrupted somehow. So anything I submit is new photos and means each one is an assignment I need to find time and subjects for. Not the easiest to find abandoned shit where I live as it's a very well kept area.

Hey, I'm a film maker, and I lvoe your contest. I was wondering if you would consider accepting video clips oppossed to photos :) Thanks

Absolutely! It's not a photography contest, after all. :)

great, the forests should devour the big cities :)

I absolutely agree!

Thanks for another great theme, @customnature !
This is my submission for #aswcontest no. 10

From the jungle of Boquete, Panama, I bring you this incredible unfinished...and totally abandoned castle.
Rumor has it that the owner died before it was ever finished and it has been incomplete ever since.



I love your entry @nomadsanonymous, great pictures.

This time I'm punctual. :D

Hey thanks for flagging all my post! Weirdo

You've been flagged for posting fake photos and posing as someone else. That's plagerism. I care about this community and it's not welcome here. If you feel that it's a mistake, post a verification photo with your username. Problem would be solved & flags removed. If the photos you post are really you, then you're familiar with taking selfies and this should only take you a minute to do.

I can’t even post anything! So how would i do that?? Ever since you and your buddies flagged me I can’t even participate. How would you know I am plagerising with out even asking? You just assumed and flagged all my post you guys are a bunch of losers I’m done being on here

You can post. Flagged posts are just hidden and people need to hit the "show" button to see it. You can still post. You can even post that verification right here in this comment thread if you'd like. Look, you're claiming to be someone with like 150k followers on instagram. Your images are found elsewhere on the internet. Verify your ID and flags will go away. If you're falsely claiming to a public figure, then we don't want you here. If I'm wrong, not only will I remove flags, but I'll upvote your posts and you'll get $$$. It's a win/win for you.

Really awesome competition i want to upload to this aswcontest dis week check me out on my post

Neat photo, but it doesn't appear to be in the woods/forest?

I know that is not a pic made in the woods...but it s still something "wild" 😊

Hey @customnature and the rest of you abandoned shit loving weirdos :)
Here’s my entry, a shed from a place called "The Devil’s Passage".


I found this abandoned structure in an aspen grove while exploring the foothills of the San Francisco Peaks north of Flagstaff Arizona.

Happy to meet you! I'm new and can't wait to get more involved! I've definitely found some kindred spirits here. Check my blog too if you like vintage, that's what I'm all about :)

Here is my entry for the week--

Made famous by F. Scott Fitzgerald, an abandoned mansion in Lake Forest, IL that belonged to his first love,

Here is my entry. Something a little different. Hope you don't mind the Dtube link, I can turn it into a blog post if you'd prefer.

This is a work of art developed by the mayor of Maracaibo (Venezuela) in 2006. It is located on what was a boulevard created to celebrate the traditional festivities of the city. The deterioration, the vegetation and the abandonment of the place can be appreciated.

In my town, there are many steemians are interested in join this weekly contest but most of them can not understand English at all, may I translate your post into my language? I hope there will be contestans from my town join your contests. Thanks in advance.

Sure thing! You may translate. Hope they join. :)
