It's back! After a solid 10 weeks of awesome abandoned shit content flooding Steemit, we took a week off. I had several unforgiving deadlines come up with my work and wasn't able to spend much time on here. That's all over with now, though! It's time for a new theme and it is one that was voted on by contest participants. Let's dive in... no pun intended (you'll see why in a minute).
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 = 10.000 SBD
2nd Place = 5.000 SBD
3rd Place = 2.500 SBD
This week's theme = Water! Your photo of an abandoned subject must SOMEHOW be related to water. This theme could be a difficult one, but it doesn't have to be if you get creative. I'll be very flexible on the qualifications for this one. It just needs to be related to water in some way. Obvious ones would be a boat or dock. But it can also be a water tower. How about an old swimming pool or fountain? An old well? A bridge that went over water? Even a lake/ocean/river in the photo WITH the abandoned thing. See what I mean? Lets see what ya come up with!
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!.
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 I used for the contest logo above. It was taken in Alaska. This rather large boat was sitting at the edge of the forest and sea. I would love to know it's story and why it was left behind.
