IGBO-TALES : WINNER TAKES IT ALL

in contest •  7 months ago
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 .
CONTEST


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.
CONTEST RULES


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.
PRIZE


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.

Dalu so, @cwen. Ekene kwa gi. I'm not from South-Eastern Nigeria, but from South-South. Pursuit of my first degree and masters was what made me go to the East ( Anambra & Enugu States). That was orchestrated by my dad who wanted me to go to a Catholic University (Madonna University, Okija) by all means. Fate took me ESUT. All students had to transfer to ESUT, affiliated to Madonna at that time (I997). A few years after my graduation from ESUT in 1999, I gained admission into the prestigious University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) to pursue my masters degree. So two degrees (B.Sc & M.Sc) were what I got from the East. Something else that would have been good turned out to be a complete nightmare. I'm so glad to be alive to tell my story 🕺🕺🕺.
Whatever is in my power to do to support this cause and promotion of Nigerian culture generally, I will do. Bravo Chinwe!!! Post upvoted & I'm going to resteem it right away.

@moneyinfant has added your contest to the list Steemit Writing Contests: Issue #17. The list is updated on a daily basis and your contest will remain on the list until its expiration - there's nothing you need to do.

The list was created to save writers the excessive amount of time spent searching through the #contest tag for writing contests. Now they can just come to the list each day, see new contests and use their time doing what they love - writing.

If you'd like to help spread the word about the Steemit Writing Contest list I'd really appreciate a resteem, but it certainly isn't necessary. The project is simply meant to help writers save time and contest creators attract more contestants.

P.S. If you know of any contests I've missed I'd love to hear about them. Thanks!

I like this :)
