NEW Theme! Abandoned Shit Weekly Contest - №.18 - 'Overgrowth!' #aswcontest

in aswcontest •  last year 

It's week 18, folks! We're revisiting another prior theme, and it's not just "one of" of my favorites, it IS my favorite. Nature winning. Alright, lets get into it:

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 10,000 SP
2nd Place = 5 x 100% Power upvotes at 10,000 SP
3rd Place = 3 x 100% Power upvotes at 10,000 SP

The Theme:

This week's theme = OVERGROWTH! The photos must have a focus on plant-life taking over the abandoned subject. You all know I'm a nature enthusiast. I'd like to see some images where nature is really taking something back. The abandoned object can be a building, vehicle, product, whatever... the important part is that weeds, vines, moss, ivy, trees, etc are growing on/over/through it. This theme is a bit more specific. Possibly the most changing ASW Contest yet?!

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!

That's it! Let's see some cool abandoned stuff! Good Luck!

^^^Here's the photo used for the contest logo above. This old tire was found right next to some awesome ruins from a cottage in Ireland the was built in the 1200's. The tire really caught my attention though, due to how the moss and ivy was growing over it. It a few more decades, you may not be able to see it at all.

I think that's the old garage sir, is that?

Nope, these are remainings of wooden summer cabin.

Very enjoyable subject! :D I need some 'abandoned tips' for Europe if someone has them! :-)

Amazing entry!

I'm in again

I sure hope I get this one right this time.


Thanks for hosting this contest! Here´s my entry:


My submission for №.18 - 'Overgrowth!' #aswcontest

Wow, there are some awesome submissions this time!
Unfortunately, in California, not much has the opportunity to get overgrown, but this is from an abandoned mansion. I don't know how these morning glory flowers took over the door, but I thought it looked really cool!


Here's my entry for the week:

The post contains several pics of a car almost completely buried by some bushes growing over it (& used by a cat for her litter):


Die Bilder mit dem Auto und den Katzen finden ich deutlich besser als das Bild beim ersten Beitrag. Besonders toll sind die strahlenden Augen bzw. die wilde Blicke der Katzen.
