WINNERS | Blocktrades + The writers block Steem Fest ticket Giveaway - Phase 1

in busy •  4 months ago
Hey guys! The first stage of this contest is over, we had some amazing entries written with a lot of passion coming from some very engaging and enthusiastic Steemians! I read ll of the entries and believe me when I say this, I wouldn´t want to be in The writer´s block judge team or I wouldn´t be able to choose those entries who are eligible to go on to the second and final stage where the prize is no more and no less than a Steem Fest ticket including accommodation in the @blocktrades sponsored apartment in Krakow, Poland.

Sadly, only ten Steemians were chosen to participate in the next phase which believe me, will be way more exigent for those who dare joining.

I want to thank everyone who joined this contest, without you any of this would be possible. I also want to thank the judging team from TWB who spent countless hours reading and deciding who´s up for the next stage. If your entry wasn´t chosen don´t be disappointed, remember there´s still another contest running and there will be some more in the days to come.

Before announceing the winners, let me remind you this is a @Blocktrades sponsored contest, if you like what they are doing vote for them as witness here

@anomadsoul is a proud host of this contest, if you like what he is doing vote for @ocd-witness as witness here

Now, the Steemians who´s entry won and are eligibile to join the next phase are, without any particular order:

For those who won, be on the lookout for the announcement post of the second phase, if everything goes according to plan, we´ll post it tomorrow.

Hi @anomadsoul
Everyone............. that means there is another
I thought the next stage is for those who qualified already
Correct me If I am wrong...


For this particular Stage only the winners can join, what I meant is that in general, b when the contests start everyone can join.


Umm... I'm 17. I'm sure you'll think I'm too young to have a chance :'(

You give people joy, Eric. I congratulate the winners and wish to have a great time in Krakow))).


Hey Inna! You live so close to Poland! Aren't you thinking of going?


Unfortunately, I do not intend to, but I will monitor what is happening through the Internet. I have a lot of orders and work and my clients will not let me go))) Everyone needs urgently beautiful clothes)))).

Thanks a lot, this is very informative. There are humans in this platform pretending to provide information and click on-baiting customers. But this put up honestly packs a punch with all this information. well played sir.

Oww this is so awesome 😍 thank you! I can't wait for the next phase!!

Ha, sweet. Thanks for the selection, @anomadsoul! And congrats to the other winners! Guess I'll be doing some more writing soon! :)

Congratulation to the winners!

Hi @anomadsoul, I have a question...I just saw in the Phase 2 announcement that the deadline is September 19th. I'm assuming the judging will begin after that, so the winners should be announced a few days after the deadline if I'm right.
And that leaves a very tight window of time (if any at all) in which the entrants who didn't win can still buy their tickets at the current price.

So, my question is this - after all, there are 10 entries, only one winner, so what do the other nine do?
Do they accept that they'll have to pay 20% more, or do they do the smart thing and buy a ticket before September 21st? In which case, why bother trying in the first place?

I don't want to seem like I'm complaining, because I'm not, but it just seems to me that it would be better if there was a little more time between the deadline and September 21st...


You are totally right, we'll discuss putting the deadline a few days earlier. I'll get back to you soon.


Good catch!


Done, we moved it to Sunday September 16th :)


How can I take part in the next contest, I have missed this great opportunity.
