REMINDER! Abandoned Shit Weekly Contest - №. 8 - "On Assignment": *Ends Sunday* #aswcontest

in aswcontest •  2 years ago  (edited)

** Submit your Abandoned 'On Assignment' photos by 11:59pm EST, Sunday! Be sure to use the tag #aswcontest **


Hi gang! Just wanted to put out a reminder that there is only around 2 days left to enter the Abandoned Shit Weekly Contest. The current week's theme is "On Assignment". This means your photo should include a piece of paper with "aswcontest" and the current date on it, BUT the SUBJECT can be anything abandoned. Houses, vehicles, factories, roads, playgrounds, etc etc. No theme for subjects, but try to avoid just litter/trash. This has been one of the most entires weeks to me yet; seeing photos submitted from around the world. Seriously. Click on the #aswcontest tag and check them out so far. Okay, here's a refresher of the contest information:

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 = 15.000 SBD
2nd Place = 10.000 SBD
3rd Place = 5.000 SBD

The Theme:

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.

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!

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!

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

^^^Here's the photo used for the contest logo above. It was also from just out in our backyard. We have 3 small ponds on our property and this is an old deck that the previous owner built. It was in rough shape when we bought the place four years ago, and it has only gotten worse. I'm going to tear the thing down one of these days, when I have time.
