By organizing this #contest I wanted to contribute to the further development & growth of the #Steemit community!
There were 4 entries in the 15th & again all the entries were great!! The post with the results & explanations can be seen on the following address: https://steemit.com/contest/@careassaktart/self-portrait-photo-contest---results---15th-week
Be creative & make self-portraits not in that common way as the trendy "selfies" but in a high quality way partly describing yourself & your way of life. Every each of us has many different roles to play in life: worker, sportsman, soldier, writer, driver, lover, husband, father, wife, mother, artist, model, waitress, lawyer, dancer, actress, scientist, doctor, singer, musician, politician, manager, nurse, porn star, prostitute, gigolo, pimp... or some kind of an imaginary character - somebody who you would like to be... There is plenty of inspiration for the theme!
Nudes are also very appreciated & welcomed as well as the conceptual & art #photography.
#Photos can be full color, b&w & #monochrome tones.
How to apply for the #contest:
- Use a #self-portrait tag as one of your tags in the post.

Four years ago I got a job in the government tourist office in Matulji county, Croatia. It was a big surprise for me cause I looked like I look on the photo above & mostly they do not employ people who look like me: with long hair, dreads & long beard. But fortunately, the director of the office valued my education & my multi-language knowledge so I got the job according to me skills & not the look! That was a win against the prejudice! But still, out of courtesy, respect & gratitude, I bought myself a white shirt & pants to look at least a bit more polite, tide my hair & cut my mustache a bit too! I took the photo in my room holding the camera in my hand with a wide angle lens mounted.
It would be nice to have a #sponsor who would #delegate some SP so that this #contest can develop further more & that the prizes can be bigger...
By #delegating SP to me for the purpose of this #contest, you become a #sponsor / supporter & you will be mentioned in every next #self-portrait connected post of mine!
I'm looking forward to see your entries!
No Upvote, No Resteem, No Follow required. Of course, all the help and support you give is greatly appreciated and absolutely voluntary.
