NEW Theme! Abandoned Shit Weekly Contest - №.16 - 'Creepy!' #aswcontest

in aswcontest •  2 years ago  (edited)

ASW Contest week number 16 is here! Man, how great was last week though? Having such a general theme certainly brought a ton more entries/posts to the Steemit world. We'll definitely have to do that one again; maybe every few weeks or something? Today mark the beginning of a new ASW week though, so 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 = CREEPY! Something that gives you the creeps!. Over the last few weeks, there's been many entries that made me say "Wow, that's creepy!"... so let's feature those types of things this week! Now I know everyone is creeped out by different sorts of things, so just have it be something that YOU find eerie. Past entries that come to mind are weird children's shoes in the woods, abandoned dolls, graveyards, WWII things, creepy old houses, etc. You CAN edit them to make the photos more creepy, but I ask that you don't STAGE the photographs (like adding props and stuff). Okay, now lets get weird!

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 11:59pm 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 Dublin, Ireland. To give you an idea of how you can edit photos this week, I'll show you what I did to this one to make it a bit more eerie. Here is the original of the same picture:

ASWContest #16 - Creepy! - The Daughter of Apocalypse

This time something unusual for ASW contest. Not just simple frame, but the one from art photoshoot from the last year. Well, a lot of CREEPY art in fact, but still :)

The vision of the Apocalypse after WWIII...
Shot at the basement of the local abandoned building. The sign on the door means "High Voltage. Dangerous for Life". Very dark premises lightened by LED scorpion lights.

Great topic for a theme. Will participate when I get back home to my photo library.

I think I'll take pictures of the parish where I live, it's pretty scary. You can not put it on a map

My submission for #aswcontest - №.16 - This is a creepy tunnel on the "Impossible Railroad." Many people died during construction of this series of bridges and tunnels that goes through the mountains of San Diego and into Yuma. What's in there!!?

I want to take a part here.....hiii...hiiiii...creepy

I'm really stoked about this contest! Creepy is right up my alley!

Have some stuff for this interesting theme "Creepy"

hi @customnature ... !!! I have participated in #aswcontest,
this time I want to ask related theme this time that is CREEPY! Something that gives you the creeps!

what if in the picture frame there is a human corpse, what is published in this contest?.
may be a spooky image and contains a sadistic element.

Ehhh, well I did say to post whatever YOU (the person posting) thinks is creepy. I, personally, don't find corpses "creepy". I consider it more like gore or shocking. With this theme, I was think more like eerie/creepy/spooky/haunted, if that make sense?

@customnature was hanging coffins would be something like that?

this my entry for Abandoned Shit Weekly Contest - №.16 - 'Creepy!' #aswcontest

Funny contest I will resteem it etc.

Ha ha, no way, as soon as I saw the theme, I thought about this very place!! It is a little graveyard at the back of Malahide Castle in Dublin :o)


This is not my entry by the way... I will have to find something else..
