This is not a singing contest. All you have to do is record yourself talking about some topics!
Many people told me "Oh, but I´m not a singer, I won´t join that one". So yeah, the general perception of this contest wasn´t what we meant, that´s why we decided to be more clear about the dynamic of this particular contest and to give everyone one more week to submit their entries.
Do you already feel like joining? Great, here are the rules for the contest:
Tell us about yourself. The real person behind the Steemit username. After all, if you win, we´ll be meeting in person in less than 3 months.
Your story on Steemit. When did you join, why, how etc. How do you engage with the community, what do you do on a daily basis on Steemit or any of the other DApps.
Why do you want to attend SteemFest and what can you add to the community by attending.
And the most important part... Tell us the direction you would like to see Steemit move towards. The idea is to record yourself telling your fellow Steemians what you want Steem to become and how you think you can help that reality come true.
Once you made your recording, upload it to DTube, YouTube, or Vimeo then post it on your blog. Add any other pics or storyline you would like to include on your blog.
