Thoughts on Clay Art Contest Run 5

A big round of applause to everyone who entered the contest. Last week's contest was full of "sweet" entries. I could see how the entries varied from each other. In fact, the clay art snacks which were submitted definitely reflected the country of origin. It was really amazing to see different types of food choices and the stories behind them. We have had some very persistent clay artists and it is just amazing how creative each one is. There has been a trend going on as well where families come togther to create one clay art entry. It is so heartwarming to see families come together because of my contest. I do hope everyone has fun in the process of making these entries.

Commitment to Reward Quality Clay Artists

With that being said, I continue to pledge my dedication to rewarding quality clay art in Steemit. This wouldn't be possible without the generous offers and support from our sponsors, fellow steemians and loyal contestants. I do hope we reach a much bigger audience in time. I owe my gratitude to everyone who helped me with this contest.

This week's sponsor: A Community Builder and Servent-Leader

It is such an honor to welcome a very esteemed person of @steemph.cebu to be this week's sponsor. Out of the kindness of @ybanezkim26 who gladly promoted #clayartcontest, the request for funding was heeded by none other than @jassennessaj, one of the core leaders of the Cebu Steemit Community. He has always been a visionary and has believed in the capacity of the Cebuanos. In the span of months, the core leaders built the local community from scratch and have continued to envision a bright future for the community. I fully support their initiatives and I am in awe of their unwavering mindset.

This entry would have to be the most creative one yet. See how @bigboycrafts personified his snacks into very appealing miniature donuts.

4th place: @ohkaaay

Clay Art Contest #5 | Your Favorite Snack: Filipino Street Food


If you are a Filipino, you would be fooled with how it totally looks like the streetfood we mostly see outside. Though it was simple, it didn't fail to represent her favorite snacks.

Other Entries


Clay Art Contest #5: Snack Time

What do you think of a Banana + Pizza + Fries as a great combo in fast food chains? I surely would love to try out that combination.


Clay Art Contest: Food Lover

Her burger, pizza and cupcake looked really delicious. She notes in her post how she is aware how unhealthy the choices were. I say it doesnt really hurt if we take them in moderation. We eventually have to reward ourselves with sweets occasionally.


Clay Art Contest #5-Theme: Your Favourite Snack!


This was actually the first entry for this week and it got me really excited when she submitted her entry. The post mentions how this was made with a 7 year old daughter and I could not be happier to imagine a child make such a wonderful piece of accessory.


My favorite SNacks ''Clay Art Contest#5''

@chelellbaguio made sure to emphasize the texture of her entry. That really made the snacks come alive. I believe she did well with her entry despite the lack of color choices. Great job!


Grab Yours Now! - Snacks Clay Art Contest

@aadelalo made a lot of snacks. I really thought they were very large pieces but after she made a selfie, I can see how much effort she must have put in with how tiny the pieces are. Thanks for entering my contest for the first time


Our Favorite Snacks

I was really expecting H to make her entry for this week and I was not disappointed with the results. The sliced egg looks real though haha. She also mentioned how this contest has already been a way for their family to bond with each other. I am such in awe to hear how this contest makes it possible for families to come together in the spirit of creativity. Hope to see you next week and I do hope you spend more time as a family :D

This Weeks Clay Art Theme: Something that Scares You

Retrieved from OpenClipart-Vectors (2016) released under the Creative Commons CC0 and free of use for public domain

If I were to join my own contest, I would definitely make a cockroach. I couldnt even dare to put up a photo of one.
It just makes the back of my neck itch like crazy. You make also make anything that literally makes your hairs go up and your heart pump faster. I will be waiting to get spooked out.

I urge you to make clay art featuring anything that scares you. This is really subjective so I would appreciate a writeup as to why you chose to make this one. Let your imagination run wild with the texture, colors, sizes and designs. Have fun!

About This Week's Contest

Here are the details for this week's #clayartcontest:

Inclusion Rules

Like all contests here in Steemit, I need to lay down a few ground rules for everyone. I will use this as a basis whether your entry is considered official or not.

  • Upvote this post: Hope that doesn't sound too much. I believe more upvotes on this post will merit more rewards later on :D
  • Resteem: Not everyone is totally on board with this one as it disrupts the delicate layouting of their blog. But I do need a bit of exposure. You may resteem before making a post so your latest post appears on top.
  • Make a post and use #clayartcontest as your main tag: This will make it easier to look for the entries
  • Post the URL of your entry at the comments section below. I would also appreciate it if you upload the photo with your comment and URL so everyone can see your work!

Other Rules

  • As of the moment, you may use any type of molding material. But I do prefer if you use modeling clay.
  • Your post should include a short write-up. It could easily be a short explanation on how you made your entry. It does help to make your post more appealing. We are after Quality Content after all ;D
  • Please nominate someone who you think would love to make clay art with us. Tag his/her name in your post for the nomination. He/She doesn't necessarily have to make an entry but it does make the game so much better.


  • The contest will end 7 days after posting.
  • I will be the judge for the contest and will focus more on the quality of the clay art and the short writeup.


Here is the updated reward pool of 5 SBD for this run. Once again, big thanks to @jassennessaj for his generosity. ANYONE CAN BE A SPONSOR! So if you support my concept, feel free to send your donation and I will be happy to distribute the rewards to quality artists.

  • First Place - 2 SBD (Minnow Food)
  • Second Place - 1.5 SBD (Minnow Bite)
  • Third Place - 1 SBD (Minnow Scrap)
  • Fourth Place - 0.5 SBD (Consolation)


  • It's fun! How therapeutic what that be to spend a few minutes of your time molding clay into the desired theme. It won't take you long.
  • All the entries will be featured in the next posts. I will also be occasionally resteeming a few entries which I find to be really spectatcular so everyone can see it.
  • Minnow Food awaits you lol

This week may be a little hectic for me so I would most probably find it difficult to check on everyone's entry right away, however, I will most definitely get back to it once my schedule is free. I leave the upvotes to the curators of Steemit. So sorry for this.

I urge every participant to share this with their local community and fellow clay artists so they could be rewarded and featured for their great work as well

Plenty of creative people here around! Looks really great! I wish I was a little bit more creative

Creativity is everything you do at your own way! Think about yourself and describe it! I think this a simple way to be creative ;-)

I missed joining the previous themes but i am not gonna miss another one. Funny how cockroach first entered my mind as well. But i do not actually know whether i am able to make one as it makes me scared so much. Talk about conquering fear. Lol.

This is my entry to the running clayartcontest:
I made a biliungal post for english and german readers.
Hopefully you enjoy my work and the short story.


@joserifa awesome contest took bad I don't have the talent for this

I thought the same as long I begun to make some small psychedelic looking mushrooms. All my familiy and friends loved them so I tried to make more different things... The most i did are small pigs, very cute and easy to make! look at my blog ....
Never try to challenge others or compare yourself to others, your way as you are is always the best! ;-)

Nonsense. You'll be amazed at what you can make once you start molding. Thanks for stopping by
