Hello Steemians, this past week I thought about my Steemit Journey and how to give back to this amazing community (with my own little token) that has helped me a lot emotionally, physically and financially. Hence I decided to run a contest open to all minnows (mostly for Nigerians,but if you have an Igbo friend that can inspire you then join in) to support their growth on Steemit .
The contest is all about celebrating the Igbo culture or lifestyle. I choose to run this contest to appreciate and showcase the culture, lifestyle and heritage of the Igbo tribe/people of Nigeria where I originate from.
1. Use the Hashtag # igbo-tales and include Igbo-tales in your post title for this contest entry.
2. Write a fiction, autobiography whatever writing you choose to express your Igbo-tales (original content) - Word Count: 200 words and above.
3. You can also express your Igbo tales in any media form; that is by art illustration, video or pictures detailing an Igbo story,lifestyle or cultural display. In other words be creative. (Original works please).
4. Upvote and resteem this post.
This is a weekly contest, winners will be announced every week.
Best 5 entries get my 100% upvote, It might not be much but it is something sha!
Only one Grand winner gets the prize of 1 SBD (This week's winner gets 2 SBD thanks to @slausonboy who just donated 1SBD to this contest when I spoke to him about it).
The Grand winner gets the opportunity to write a post on my blog and all SBD's generated from His/Her post is given to Him/Her. The winner will have to contact me @cwen on discord for this.
Hopefully I will get more Donations which will be given to the Winner and perhaps the number of winners and reward will increase soon as I strive to Increase (I've been playing with bots lately, lols)
This picture below is why I run this contest too, It is a beautiful picture and makes me nostalgic as I remember our village stream in my maternal home at Obowo. There is something though that makes it off for me, Its not depicting Africa, Nigeria or Igbo. I truly searched for a similar picture online but with the African vibe/person on it and I couldn't get one. Hence the need to Populate the blockchain and the internet with our Igbo-tales.
If you want to support this contest feel free to upvote this post or send any amount of donation to @cwen for this cause. Thank you.
