COMBINATION PHOTOGRAPHY WEEK 10 WINNERS ANNOUNCEMENT PLUS WEEK 11 BEGINS NOW!

in contest •  8 days ago

Ah, the beauty of a creature out in creation!


I have always been amazed at all of the amazing plants and animals that were created to share this planet with us. The different colors, shapes and sizes are incredible, and we are truly blessed to be able to enjoy such variety. I was interested to start up this "Combination Photography" contest where other steemians around the world would be able to photograph some of their local plants and animals together. So far, I have been absolutely amazed with the results!

FIRST THINGS FIRST

Many of you are fully aware that I promised a limited edition STEEM "COMMUNITY" 1 oz Silver Round to the winner of Week 10 of my Combination Photography Contest. That, of course, was the idea... but then things got hard. How could I choose from all of the amazing entries?

Soon, I realized that I needed serious help. After all, although I love running contests here on steemit, I absolutely hate choosing winners. Soon, I made my Week 10 Winners Post where I featured my favorite photos that had been submitted and asked the community to vote on which ones they preferred.

Well, that really didn't help too much either. In fact it made things even worse. So, will I still be crowing a winner and giving away one of the STEEM "COMMUNITY" 1 oz Sivler Rounds?

NO!

Actually, I've decided to give away 4 of them!

WHY?

Basically, it's because "I'm like that." I've decided to award three "normal winners" that will receive the "normal" splits of the SBD from the post payouts and also 1 STEEM "COMMUNITY" 1 oz Silver Round each and a BONUS winner who will "only" get the Silver Round.

Hopefully this will make it worth the wait... for four of you at least.

THE WINNERS!


As always, this was tough for me, but I have finally made my decisions. The Winner gets 50% of the liquid post payout from the Week Ten Post and the two runner ups each get 25% of the same.

THE WINNER


@okylxx

10 SBD



FIRST RUNNER UP


@davidad

5 SBD



SECOND RUNNER UP


@carrieallen

5 SBD



"BONUS WINNER"


@tojukaka

NO SBD "JUST" THE STEEM SILVER ROUND!


IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR THE FOUR WINNERS:

Please provide me with a valid shipping address for your prize on either discord or steemit.chat. I am @papa-pepper on both of those too! Once I have a shipping address, I'll work on getting a prize pack together for you and shipping it over!

WEEK 11 & SOME EXAMPLES

First off, by combination photography I mean that you should combine two elements; plants and animals. At least one plant and at least one animal should be featured in your photo. Here are two examples.


Blue Spotted Salamander on moss



Spotted Salamander on iris leaf


Besides simply providing the images, I also require that those entering this contest provide a proof photo as well. Two main versions of proof photos exist. One kind features the same combination of plants & animals with a written paper in the photo with your username, the date, contest name, etc. to prove that you took the photo for the contest.

The other type of proof is just a selfie with the animal and plant. Here are my examples for the photos featured above.

Once you see the proof photos there should not be any doubt in your mind that I actually took the photos I shared above. All you need to do is submit your photo entry and your proof photo by replying to this post with them. Also, though the official way to enter this contest is by including your entry photo and the proof photo in a reply to my post, I strongly encourage others to make an actual post featuring their entry as well.

Even if you do not win the contest, you could still get something for your effort if you turn it into a post as well. @Matthewtiii once hit the jackpot on a post about his contest entry. His post paid out at over $200 total while he has trying to win 5 STEEM, LOL! Link here.

ON TO WEEK 11!


By now you should have a clue about what this contest is and how to enter, but here are the official rules just to make sure. Enjoy, and I am looking forward to seeing what you can come up with.

HERE ARE THE OFFICIAL RULES:

  • Photo entries must be placed in the reply/comment section of this post.
  • Submissions may also be made into posts, but it is not necessary.
  • A proof photo will also be required. This can be in the form of a selfie with the subjects from the photos or in the form of your username written on a piece of paper in a photo, etc. Basically, you must prove the originality of your work. Therefore, your entry comment should include two photos.
  • Users have between now and the time of the post payout to enter this contest.
  • I will personally select one winner to award half of the liquid SBD payout from this post to and two runner ups who will each get 25% of the same.
  • Enter as many times as you like!
  • Depending on the interest in this contest, I may have it be ongoing.

IMPORTANT: Please make sure to include both your entry photo and proof photo in your reply.

TL;DR

If you reply to this post with a photo of a plant and animal together and include a proof photo before the post payout from this post, you may win a portion of the post payout.

LET THE 11TH WEEK OF THE CONTEST BEGIN!!!

As always, I'm @papa-pepper and here's the proof:

That coin looks fantastic man, and i personally think that in the future it will have a pretty big value, make more of them please.

·

This was a limited edition minting made by @phelimint and @sevinwilson if I am not mistaken. Only 1500 were minted, but that doesn't mean they can't make another edition in the future. Either way, Papa will probably not make more - but he sure seems to like giving them away! Keep your eye on his future posts and I'm sure there will be another opportunity.

photography contest r u win i hope carry on friend @papa-pepper
