📷📷New BeScouted Photo Contest to Join! SBD and Membership prizes! WEEK 1: PORTRAIT📷📷

in bescoutedphotocontest •  2 years ago  (edited)

After almost a month on Steemit and participation in various amazing contests i have decided to host a #BeScoutedPhotoContest

PRIZES

  1. I have saved up some STEEM DOLLARS and i am establishing a personal 10 SBD prize for the winner.
  2. Three winners will share all liquid STEEM in equal shares.
  3. Three winners will receive yearly BeScouted Expert membership worth 99 EUR each should the winners choose to SignUp on BeScouted and provide their profile link after winning.
  4. Three honorable mentions will receive yearly BeScouted Pro membership worth 48 EUR each should the winners choose to SignUp on BeScouted and provide their profile link after winning.

I will be judging and selecting the winners since the contest is new. I will try to back up my decision with an explanation why i think this was the worthy winner.

Since BeScouted is all about discovering talented people and cooperation the theme of the first week will be quite generic to maximize participation in order to start things moving.

Thanks, you should participate :)

Congratulations, @bescouted! I have upvoted and resteemed this and wish you all the best. One question: Is there a limit on the number of entries?

·

Thanks! Well no. I have seen some contests to limit the entries and maybe it makes sense once it goes really big but for now anyone can share as many as they want. Unless there is something that i do not know yet :)

·
·

Thank you very much for your quick answer @bescouted. Here is my first entry:

Please check if all the conditions are met as they should. Good luck once again!

Already found using hashtag :) Great entry and good luck!

Hope the contest goes great. There are already some fine entries already.

·

I hope it will pick up the speed with the growing prize fund too :)

Hi, here is my second submission - portrait variations for my new Techno album cover - the first one is the submission :-) since the others are more abstract....

Hi mate :) Thanks for the exposure :) I hope i did everything right and did not miss anything :) Was waiting for some steem to come in to announce this :)

Great idea friend. I will not participate but look forward to seeing all the awesome portraits come in.

But I will help by re-steeming and up-voting this post!

·

Thanks man :) I think you should challenge yourself and try taking a portrait near the window for example :) Would be lovely to see and maybe give an advice or something :)

·
·

We'll see. Maybe... No promises.. There's so many good authentic photographers here, but I do appreciate the encouragement.

·
·
·

And each of them started with their first portrait some time ago :) Would love to see your entry if you decide to join. You never know where this attempt might take you :)

·

I will take a look at all of them!

Good luck with this contest,David ! Up and resteemt

·

No, just an example. You can upload any portraits edited in any way.

i'm INN !

You don't meed to spam all yout entries in the comments mate. That's why we have a contest tag ;)

·
·

That is usually a requirement in most art and some other photo related contests (art-trail, artstyle, tinyart etc...)

·
·
·

well i am relevantly new on steemit so i do not know everything yet, but i do not see how this helps? Can you give me a tip maybe?

·

Hi @bescouted -

  1. this main post will be read first and as announcement etc. receives more upvotes /attention ... pops up as trending - will be resteemed by participants.
  2. Due to the apparent nature of Steemit, individual posts disappear fast in the vast maelstrom ... and nobody knows this tag yet.
  3. Peers are creatures of habit / we are used to a certain format of the challenges. :-)
  4. All in one place ... makes it easy for all - give us pictures in this post and we are more likely to respond - easier (pre)selection, more engagement - easier to vote. :-)
  5. Perhaps have a look at other challenges ... and you will see what I mean. Sorry, I am Indonesian / English is not my first language.

Thank you for your input, and your English is very good :) My thinking was that once you navigate to this post, or any other post that participates in competition it is much easier to click on contest tag and see all the entries if interested rather than going through the comments and not getting the full picture. It's at least how i do it in other contests, but maybe everybody has their own way.

·
·

That is correct ... apologies, if you wish to do things a bit different.

Should i have a high end quality camera to participate

·

It is not camera that makes a good image. It is creativity and skill of a photographer.

One of my HCC club members takes nice pics. will ask her to send me one. I like the idea @bescouted. Upvoted and resteemed.

·

Thanks :) Will be waiting for your pic :)

A contest with a clear set of rules? Definitely participating.

Very cool @bescouted!! Great initiative! Can't wait to see the entries and see if I can come up with a submission as well :) Upvoted and resteemed!

·

Me too :) And can't wait to see yours as well !:)

·

Thank you for taking part :) Cheers!

·
·

Thank you for organizing this!! Next week we have to post the next photos?

·
·
·

At the end of this week we will announce the winners and disclose a new theme for next week's contest :)

·
·
·
·

awesome!!! :D

·
·
·
·

Quick question: the winner will be based on the upvotes or on a particular decision?

·
·
·
·
·

I will be judging it myself. It is in the rules.

Question: Can someone be the model in the portrait or is this for the photographers only? Thanks!

·

It's just a portrait. Any portrait will be considered an entry as long as it is original work.

Congratulations!!!! Good initiative
All the best:)

@bescouted Great to see you've created a contest! I will resteem in hopes of your endeavor gaining more steem...good luck!

·

Lets see how it goes :) I expect to see your entry too :)
