BecomeTheArtist-26UltimateBenefitsContest-1200x675.png



Probably when you participate for the first time in a contest, you are attracted by

THE REWARDS, THE PRIZES. ๐Ÿค‘

(1)

But of course you also want to

SHOW WHAT YOU CAN, SHOW YOUR TALENT, ๐Ÿ’Ž

(2)

and most probably you like to

CHALLENGE YOURSELF๐Ÿšง

(3)

and to

HAVE A GOAL TO PURSUE! ๐ŸŽฏ

(4)

Once you have submitted your entry and the first signs of

GRATITUDE, SUPPORT, FEEDBACKS AND COMPLIMENTS ๐Ÿ’•

(5)

arise, you will feel your

SELF-ESTEEM AND SELF-CONFIDENCE ๐ŸŽ

(6)

growing. You will see that by participating in the contest you

INCREASE YOUR VISIBILITY ๐Ÿ‘€

(7)

in the

COMMUNITY AND MAY GET MORE FOLLOWERS. ๐Ÿ‹

(8)

You start

MAKING CONNECTIONS AND NETWORKING โ›“๏ธ

(9)

with others having the same interests than you.

YOU DISCOVER WHAT OTHERS DO ๐Ÿ”Ž

(10)

and

LEARN FROM THEM. ๐ŸŽ“

(11)

When the closing deadline approaches, you will

FEEL THE SUSPENSE ๐ŸŽฒ

(12)

and in case you are selected amongst the winners you

FEEL THE SELF-SATISFACTION ๐Ÿ—ฝ

(13)

about your realization and

CONFIRMATION ๐Ÿ†

(14)

of your talents. In case you are not part of the winners, let it

STIMULATE ๐Ÿ”‹

(15)

you to

DO EVEN BETTER AND SURPASS YOURSELF ๐Ÿš€

(16)

next time.

RAISE THE BAR ๐ŸŽš๏ธ

(17)

even higher. By regularly participating, you will

DEVELOP YOUR SKILLS ๐Ÿ““

(18)

and

BUILD UP EXPERIENCE. ๐Ÿ•๏ธ

(19)

You increase your

PERFECTION AND SHARPEN YOUR CHARACTER! ๐Ÿ–ผ๏ธ

(20)

The themes proposed can be a

SOURCE OF INSPIRATION ๐ŸŒ…

(21)

in case you are out of ideas. Most probably you will

GO OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE ๐Ÿ‘ป

(22)

and

TRY SOMETHING NEW. ๐Ÿ”ฎ

(23)

You can also use the contests to

TEST YOUR IDEAS ๐Ÿ’ก

(24)

and see how others react on it. Maybe the contests will become your

HOBBY! ๐ŸŽจ

(25)

But most important : do it for

THE FUN! ๐ŸŽˆ

(26)

Great interactivity on this post!

In italic in the above article are the amendments issued from the interactions here in the comments

Great amendments suggested by readers:

@davidallenjones : GET MORE FOLLOWERS (added in # 8)
@jacksondavies : SHARPEN YOUR CHARACTER (added in # 20)

(Feel free to give them some support on their comments hereunder and to suggest your own amendments!)

Thanksies! ๐ŸŒท

I have been in a few here and even won one. They make things a lot more interesting. But some are just too hard or take too much time for too little reward.

By the way you forgot one of the top reasons and that is to gain followers. When I won I gained a lot of new followers. You have to update and add it or you could change # 20. Just some thoughts. Have a great one.

Good point! That's what I meant with visibility and community. I added the word FOLLOWERS in the point 8 ;)

Thanks for sharing!

I love it. You are a superstar my friend. Great post. Resteemed too.

thanksies ;)

I've participated in a couple contests since I joined steemit.
I haven't won any yet, but I'm motivated to keep trying.

Whether you win or not, participating in contests sharpens your character.

I missed out on a story writing contest a couple days ago, and this has motivated me to finally fufil my goal of publishing a story.

I'll be working on that in the days to come.

Great! Thank you for sharing your experience. I'm happy that the contest stimulated yo to reach out your goal!

Thanks also for your contribution in the interactivity of this post!

I amended the point 20 :)

You're welcome sir (or is it ma'am).
I honoured to see that my comment was inspiring enough for you to amend your list.

It's not easy for me to start interacting with other people, so the contests allow me to do it, at least until I learn a little more from the community, it's never easy to be the new โ€ฆ by the way, excellent publication I felt identified

Oh I'm so happy I could touch you with my publication! Thank you for this feedback!

I just had a look at your blog and I see you join many of the contests THIS IS GREAT!!!! Continue like this! This will for sure help you to connect!

Another way is also to be in Discord in case you aren't yet.

All the best and good luck for the contests!

great

yes great :)

Thank you nice blog follow you.

thank you for the compliment!

I feel very great when I participate in contests but most of my entry doesn't even get vote not to talk of where it will be seen to be among the winners.

I believe in consistency. :)

I could imagine if you join a certain contest over several weeks, you will become seen.
Of course it also depends on the type of contests you join.

You can also try to take one which is almost closing and doesn't have a lot of entries yet, less participants = higher chance to win

Or the other way around : try to be amongst the first ones to submit your entry, more people will see you.

Which types of contests do you join?

Those strategies are great when you are new participant in the contests, but I think the interaction is very important as well. That way you'll have some responses, advices and you'll be contributing to create a community. Of course, it's a matter of consistency -as you said above- in the participation, in the quality of your posts and interactions.

fully agree ๐Ÿ‘

Most times I participate in the photo contest by @juliank

maybe you can also try some others. I compile the weekly list of traditional art contests (drawing, painting, crafts,...), not the photo contests. But maybe you can check out @artz, I know he has a list with more variety and also many photo contests.

Good luck :) And continue trying! ;)

Great post I will go through it in details after my day is done. Thanks you

happy you like it. See you soon back then :)

Nice post thanks

you're welcome!

For me Joining in an art contest make my steemit alive! because aside for chance for a win I can make a post about my design That's why I SALUTE every respected steemians that hosting an art contest and of course other contest too... I SALUTE YOU!

Great! That's the right approach! There is much more benefit, than just the financial reward :)
