Week eight already! Last week was awesome, lots of cool black & white photos of abandoned stuff. Thanks again to @daveks for being our guest judge. I'll be back to judging this week. I'm pretty sure last week had the most entries yet. Contrary to that, THIS week may have the least entires because there's going to be some leg work involved. Read on for the new theme. :) Let's dive 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 = 15.000 SBD
2nd Place = 10.000 SBD
3rd Place = 5.000 SBD
This week's theme = ON ASSIGNMENT! Photo entires must include a piece of paper with "#aswcontest" and the date IN the photo. You all have a homework assignment this week! Scribble "#aswcontest" and the date on a scrap of paper and have it in the photo with some abandoned shit. No limits on what the abandoned subject is; could be a building, vehicle, factory, boat, etc (not straight up trash/litter though). Just have the piece of paper in the picture. This week of the contest will definitely have the freshest content. Also, I'm not anticipating as many people taking part this week due to the work/travel involved, BUT that means those of you who DO enter will have much higher odds of winning and much less competition! NOTE- DO NOT write the tag or date ON the abandoned object. Don't vandalize. Entries that do will be ignored.
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!.
Rule #6 = DO NOT VANDALIZE!
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 used for the contest logo above. When we bought our house, it came with this weird old outhouse down in the woods. I'm not sure how old it is, as there are some modern looking components in it's construction, like plywood. The previous owner didn't know anything about it either. Anyway, I went and took this picture with my iPhone about 5 minutes before starting this post. See? It's not that hard!
