NEW Theme! Abandoned Shit Weekly Contest - №.15 - 'Freestyle!' #aswcontest

in #aswcontest6 years ago

Howdy gang! Here we go, into week 15 of the Abandoned Shit Weekly Contest! This one is going to be a much easier one so that pretty much anyone and everyone can join. I look forward to seeing what kind of cool stuff is submitted for judging. Let's jump 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 x 100% Power upvotes at (near) 10,000 SP
2nd Place = 5 x 100% Power upvotes at (near) 10,000 SP
3rd Place = 3 x 100% Power upvotes at (near) 10,000 SP

The Theme:

This week's theme = Freestyle! Anything goes!. Well.... ALMOST anything. It just has to be abandoned. Helpful Hint: the crustier, more grown-in, more dilapidated, the better!

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! However, multiple images of the SAME object or place in your entry post is OK.

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 I used for the contest logo above. It's an old cemetery and church ruins we found near Galway Bay in western Ireland. The church is around 800 years old!

Hi @customnature,

I've come across several of the photos from this contest that I think are really great. But I'm concerned a little bit about the photographers and I'd like to respectfully ask you if you would be willing to put a little bit of safety information in your contest posts.

  1. Be extremely careful.
  2. Don't do this alone.
  3. Always make sure someone knows where you're going and when you expect to be back.

I live in a city with a lot of abandoned mills and grain elevators, and every couple of years some photographer makes a mistake, falls down a hole, and takes three days to die. I really don't want that to happen to any of the great photographers here.


All are great suggestions and I appreciate your concern. I'll upvote this comment strong to get it up to the top of the thread. Thanks for this!

I'm agree about it sir, maybe some of us is young (especially me), sometimes I invited my friend to join with me when I want to take a photo in jungle or dangerous place. but I am very happy because there are still people who cares about the others safety, and not selfish.
You are good person @tcpolymath
cheers for #humanity :))

Thanks you so much @customnature and @tcpolymath for the notice about the most important things than getting SBD/Steem, and it is a "Safety First".

Regards, @mirfaner

Fantastic picture

Yayyyy. Abandoned shit freestyle I am in. At least I can participate. It's freestyle hurray.

Ha! Best reaction yet. Can't wait to see what you find!

Wow thanks

Thank You for the creation! @customnature
Upvoted and resteemed

Looking forward to it!

I will take a part here....👍👍👍

Just posted my entry!

I'm so pumped - have a treasure trove of abandoned shit content !! - are videos allowed as supplementary material added to the photos ?

This is the kind of reply I like to hear! Videos are welcome indeed. Cant wait to see what kind of stuff you enter!

Lol im working on the post now - tons of photos - only one video which is more than 5 years old - I deleted the original footage to save space - the video is bad - bad editing - bad visual effects - makes me feel good because I can now tell how far I've come - I will include a disclaimer - when I say it's bad I mean really bad - some pretty good pictures though. Looking forward to your thoughts on the post. Thanks for replying- all the best.

I found the original footage i was looking for. Ive literally been scouring thousands of videos and photos all day. Regardless of being for the post or not these are memories im so happy to have re discovered. Think ill re edit the video now!
