  • This must be motivational with regards to anything like life, career, love, Steemit, anything under the sun.
  • I will be accepting ALL LANGUAGES as long as there is an English translation.
  • It can be a video or simply just be a presentation or a sequence of still frames to make a video.
  • You may choose to have a voice over or a background music for the video.
  • Feel free to add captions or subtitles but this is not required, but just feel free to do extra for aesthetics.
  • You can upload it in any Steem Video Condenser like DTube and DLive or even third-party sites like Youtube or Vimeo or anywhere else.

Please do not copy or plagiarize, I won't be accepting old videos. Please make a new one inspired by this contest and target a particular person to dedicate it for or a group of people that you want to inspire and motivate.

This is a no obligation contest, no pressure to upvote and resteem the post (because requiring this is against Steemit SPAM Policies, FYI) but it would greatly help in the success of this contest and to be able to fund more contests in the future so feel free to do so.

Contest Rationale:

Why am I doing this contest? I want to help my fellow red fishes and I want to matter in this platform just by doing that. I love Steemit and the people in it and I enjoy being here, so might as well do something fun and worthwhile and helpful here.


If at any point, you need help with fixing audio or video and other technical issues as you make your piece for this contest or as you upload it, let me know by sending me a memo in the wallet or contacting me directly in Discord: mermaidvampire#4421, I'd be glad to give you tweaks and suggestions to make it work.

Sample Video by @mermaidvampire:

I made this video for a fellow dialysis patient. He wanted to make a video of his life but he did not know how and he wanted to join a contest. I surprised him and made him one on the last hour before the deadline, I downloaded all his public FB pics and made something in powerpoint and saved it as an MP4. It won him the grand prize and my share was given to his mom. His parents cried watching it. I am uploading this video here with his permission.
