Hello there! Welcome to my digital castle.

We're starting the second challenge immediately!
There have been reports of strange creatures in the wilderness and we must continue to build and fortify the area.
We could use a morale boost.. So.. The second challenge will be dedicated to the moon.
The best artwork involving the moon gets the win for this round.
Especially cause I think steem/steemit is eventually going to the moon. :)
For example.. Here's one I took myself with an old 35mm camera years ago.
The rules are..
You must create your own blog post on your page in regards to the challenge with a title mentioning the specific contest, IE something like.. "Information Finding Championship - Season 1 : Round 2 entry" and then link it here on this page in the comments below. And you also have to use the #informationfinding tag in your blog post as well.
I DO accept artwork that you did not create yourself and it doesn't have to be brand new original work, but you must state if you made it yourself or not, and if not who did, and if you don't know who made it.. Tell me you don't know who made it. The more information about the artwork the better.
I will personally much more lean towards the original and unique content people have created themselves, BUT.. That doesn't necessarily mean that's who the winner will be.. This is the Information Finding Championship.. Whoever brings the best information as voted upon by myself and the judges in relation to what I request wins the round.
For this challenge.. If there's a tie.. We'll do another round between just those who tied to see who wins.
The winner will be decided by whoever gets the most votes.
The only people who can vote in a qualifying sense are myself and the four judges I've selected and we will vote by leaving a comment on the submission that we like the most and say something like.. "I vote for this one" and a reason why we voted would be good too, but is not mandatory.
You have until this challenges post payout ends to submit your post, and I think in general for most of the challenges you will have better odds if you submit sooner rather than later.
The challenge will finish after 7 days when the post ends and provides its payout cycle and unless there is a tie, the one with the most votes will get a level up and a point to go towards their long term win and the steem/sbd from the challenge (minus the 25% or so for curation)
The winner of this round will temporarily receive the benefit of an artifact from our vault we call the "Sortiarius Chest" which gives my full powered upvotes to your next 5 entries in the competition.(My upvotes are worth around $2 right now when fully charged)
This artifact belongs to the castle so you don't get to keep it permanently! But you may benefit from the use of it temporarily for bringing us the best moon artwork!
After your artifact uses its 5 charges there will be a new competition to see who gets to use the Sortiarius Chest next. If you previously had control of the artifact you CAN enter that next round and if you win again you will retain control of the artifact for another 5 rounds.
(At this point in time I don't have the funds to get custom artwork for these artifacts and things like that that I plan on doing.. Though in the future if this contest goes well, I hope to have custom artwork for this artifact and a lot more of this kind of stuff!)
If you are new and want to know more about how the contest works in general, this link may help that explains the whole Information Finding Championship in more detail.
And finally before I go I wanted to say... I added an end date to the overall larger competition to remove peoples uncertainty. This contest and the FIRST(of hopefully many) officially ends July 18 2018 and that is around when the grand prize will be awarded.
Just in case anyone is confused.. To clarify again in regards to the rules.
