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:
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 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
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!
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!.
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:
