PAPA TURNS 70 - SO YOU GET A NEW CONTEST - A WILD & STRANGE PHOTO CONTEST FROM @papa-pepper TO CELEBRATE HIS NEW REPUTATION - With 95 STEEM to be Given Away!!!

in contest •  3 years ago 

Look, there is no way that @papa-pepper could have accomplished all that he has here on steemit without all of you. I know that as well as you do, so I'm not about to try to take the credit for reaching a reputation of 70 last night.

To add some more community interaction to this platform and to bless some of my faithful followers and supporters, I'm going to start "PAPA'S WILD & STRANGE CONTEST".

This will be the beginning of Round One, the Photo Contest.

The "requirements" of this contest are simple.

You will need to submit a photo containing three (3) things.

1- A TREE

This can be any tree of any size, or even multiple trees. Just make sure some sort of tree is in the picture.

2 - A STEEMIT LOGO

I don't care if it is a professional print or a hand-drawn scribble, just make sure you get the steemit logo in the picture.

3 - BE ANONYMOUS

Yes, the goal is that you will be the one in the picture with the tree, but, for fun, be anonymous. Bandannas, sunglasses, masks, whatever it takes, just hide your actual face for the photo.

To enter ROUND ONE of PAPA'S WILD & STRANGE CONTEST, just post your original photo of you being anonymous with a tree and a steemit logo in the comment section below. Please keep all photography safe for children and G-rated, but feel free to have some fun and get creative.

The judging will be done by myself, and it will therefore be subjective, but you can help influence the decision by commenting on the pictures submitted. Voting can be done by bots, so I will use the number of comments on the photos to help influence which photo will win. I'll also wait a few days for entries to get in, since not everyone can run outside immediately, get anonymous, get a steem logo and a tree, and take a picture.


Also, be safe, I may have hung upside-down by my feet from the tree, but I was comfortable with that. Only do what you are capable of.


Basically, you are competing with one another and my photo to come up with the best shot!

I WILL AWARD 50 STEEM TO THE WINNER LATER THIS WEEK.

Then, we will move on to Round 2, of PAPA'S WILD & STRANGE CONTEST!

I think you guys will like how the contest develops as we move forward.

Example of an entry:

Just to make sure that you all have a chance to win some STEEM and have some fun, here are some open contests that @papa-pepper still has from earlier:

WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THIS?

If you can tell me what this is a picture of, I'll give you 5 STEEM (First come, first serve).

Also, the first person to link one of my posts that contain whatever this is will also get 5 STEEM.

I'll reply with the photo below, and you can guess or post the links in replies to that comment for your chance to win.

BIGFOOT CONTEST

Follow the link above for the full details, but reply to one of my "BIGFOOT CONTEST" comments below for your chance to win 5 STEEM and a handmade Bigfoot shirt exclusively from @papa-pepper. Just check out the games below, and see if you can figure out any of the answers. (1 winner per game, and only 1 win per user.)

YOGART

A long time ago, on a steemit far, far away, @papa-pepper made some yogart, which is basically art made out of yogurt. I offered 1 STEEM to the first three people that would made some yogart themselves and reply with a photo of it.

I'll reply below with a photo of some, and if you reply with your own photo of some yogart, I'll give you 5 STEEM. The photo must contain three things to be eligible:

  • A bowl of Yogart
  • Your username written somewhere in the picture
  • My username written somewhere in the picture

FIRST THREE REPLIES WIN 5 STEEM EACH! (1 win per user)

Thank you!

You made it... Fully entered!

Yay! Happy To be a part of your contest! Actually I think it's inspired me to make my own contest.

Actually, you might be in the lead for the popular vote right now... not that it entirely matters, but it helps.

Make sure you link-drop your contest for me, at least in chat, so I don't miss it!

Cool. I am looking forward to the result!!!

I definitely will, I haven't had time to make the post but it will be coming up in the future.

Right on!

I'll take the 250 steem, but I'd rather win it!

Oh I am so excited for you! Congratulations on the big "70"!!
Now...SHOW ME and MY MONEYTREE the Money...!!!

Great contest! I'm still LMAO.
HAHAHA!

Haha! Great idea! I will enter later tonight! Hope im not to late! Steem on! 😉😂

Please do!!!

Done and done,! I also did a blog! Check it out in Papas comments ! Steem on!♨👍♨

Excellent entry.

Glad to see you had a photo that qualified laying around.

Well, it wasn't exactly laying around...I'm not going to tell you what I had to do to borrow the "leaf"...and I also made this post to drive some excitement and publicity around your big news and contest.

Congratulations on hitting the 70 rep and 10,000 steem power! Here is my entry:

Keep doing what you do.

You are a huge help to Papa!

Sorry for the delay. Here is my anonymous photo entry!

Man, you sure look like a weirdo!

HAHA, thanks! Just an ordinary redneck!

LOL!

Takes one to know one, I guess!

That's a lot more impressive skull!

Is that better?

Very charming!

;-)

papa, here is the promised entry: SMALL TREE HUGGER
[edit note] due to some reasons, this submission is withdrawn. still, good luck with the contest!!
Happy weekend!! btw, good work on explaining Steem! :)

That was not what I was expecting to see!

Here is my image for the contest.
"Grow Faster!"

Just trying to help the little tree Grow!

That is such a ridiculous photo!

It's perfect!

I just took it tonight, had no idea what I was going to do. I just saw the tree there and thought it would work out. At least I had my phone for the Steem logo.

It qualifies, and I really like it!

Are there tunes coming out of your phone? I read in an obscure circular, that playing small-scale musical botany videos to your tropical's in the evening, while giving physical support, will help them through the wintertime blah's, but I've never actually seen anyone demonstrate it. Thanks for the entry, really gave me a good laugh. Happy Thanksgiving.

Well no music. But I like the idea will try it out. This was just a random tree at the park.

Good idea, at home I suppose. Think standing in the local park, with a coat on your head, playing music to their plants in the middle of the night might get you more attention from the local gendarmes than you need ( :

Congratulations on Rep-70 and 10K SP! You do a lot for the Steemit community. Here's to you getting to 75 - and maybe even that ethereal 79 again!

DSC03375-3687c7.jpg

I guess I should put a bow on my hat,- haha. And nothing beats wool for rooting around outdoors in the winter-time!

LOL!

I love the entry!!!

Well done!

WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THIS?

BE THE FIRST TO GUESS WHAT IS IN THE PHOTO CORRECTLY AND WIN 5 STEEM.

ALSO, 2 OF MY PREVIOUS POSTS HAD THIS IN IT, LINK A CORRECT POST AS A REPLY TO THIS COMMENT AND WIN 5 STEEM.

THREE WAYS TO WIN, ONLY ONE WIN PER USER WILL BE VALID!

Looks like Armadillo Scales to me. Although it could be A lizard of some sorts. The white mixed with the Grey makes me think Armadillo though.

It is an Armadillo, but that contest was already won.

Will you be entering the photo contest for a chance to win 50 STEEM?-

Yep, I was already looking over the rules. I think I can do this one, we will see. :P

Good, I'm waiting until Monday to post on it!

The picture is scales, from a snake?> from here?

NOT A SNAKE, BUT GOOD GUESS!

Keep looking, you'll find your answer!

I'm baaaaaaack!

Congrats on the huge milestones, bud!

You've done very well with this entry, and I love the logo on the leaf!!

Also, that tree is incredible!

Thanks for the entry, we will see what happens next!

oops, seems I am not the first to do logo on the leaf.. :)

That's OK, Both qualify!!!

Thanks Papa! I thought you would enjoy that tree. It is called a Monkey Puzzle Tree, and the bugger can hurt you if you're not careful! haha

I really do enjoy that tree.

It is new to me!

70!!!

We'll have to call you Grandpapa-pepper now! lol
Or perhaps you've graduated from SteemElder to SteemAncient? XD

LOL!

Will you be finding a tree in your near future?

Absolutely!
If I was 25 years younger I might have been nekked in the MOONlight. lol

If I was 25 years younger, I'd be 10!!!

Also, I said G-rated lady!!!!

Looking forward to it anyway!!!

Ok so heres my entry for part 1 of "PAPA'S WILD & STRANGE CONTEST". ! they just put some small trees in but it was hard to take at night , not much lighting put in yet! But this is the best selfie i could get for you @papa-pepper ! Good Luck Everyone! STEEM OÑ !

You should get some bonus points for having to take your photo at night, at work, with gear you had there. That's being creative and determined. : )

Haha! I totally agree ! Plus trying to hide from the security cameras! Lol!
Thanks alot for great comments ! Good luck and steem on! 👍♨

Haha - I can't imagine what someone would think if they saw that on a security camera, lol.

DSC03379-2f10a8.jpg

WHAT AN ENTRY!!!!!

Thanks @ddschteinn!

You are officially entered!

Those scales are from an armadillo hide. Here's the original link: Armadillos andLeprosy.

WINNER

I'll give you the win for the link, and see if anyone else guesses it right.

(1 win per contest per user...)

When the answer is right in front of them, lol. I hope somebody gets it! : )

That was my plan....

Your STEEM has been transferred already, and you can still compete in the other contests if you want. I think the photo one would be right up your alley, with the tree, so get creative!

lol, kinda hard to NOT say armadillo now. :P

Way to read the comments, @anotherjoe! Here's to armadillos in your dreams. (Is that a good thing, or not?)

WINNER!!!!

Got the transfer. Thanks, @papa-pepper!

Excellent!

Thanks for playing.

Will you be taking an anonymous photo of yourself with a tree soon to try to win the 50 STEEM?

Congratulations old man. You'll be 80 before you know it with these shenanigans

LOL!

Thank you for having the contest.

You're very welcome!

This could be fun. see if i can find a tree to hide in. :-)

Please do, it'll get more fun as we continue!

Aw snap! I am so doing the photo challenge!

Do it!

As this contest progresses, you'll be glad that you did!

Also, after seeing your creativity in your artwork, I'm looking forward to see what you can come up with!

I have a cool idea! Just gotta get a moment to do it. Haha
How long are you holding the contest? I don't wanna miss out!

It'll be later this week...

Maybe I can wait until the weekend.

LoL damn man you're going hard on here. Keep it up man. You're showing me the value of effort on a post.

Thanks.

I am even # 34 for highest reputation!!!!

What's up with that??

I don't know but let's get you higher on that list!

LOL!

Thanks @bitcoinparadise!

Excellent pos my friend @papa-pepper
I want to congratulate you for those 70 you have well earned with the excellent work that you do.
Very good initiative will surely have a lot of audience as well of all its challenges realized.
The image corresponds to the skin of a lizard
Congratulations on all your achievements.
My great friend succeeded

Actually, it is NOT a lizard @jlufer, but it sure looks like it.

Keep guessing if you want!

Congrats @papa-pepper. You have a well deserved reputation.

Thank you for that, last I checked, I was the 34th highest on steemit!!!!

WOW!

Excellent

FULLY AGREED!

It is most excellent @sponge-bob!

Congrats man!
And thanks for some laughs with the memes contests 😃

You're welcome, we are having some fun around here!

@pappa-pepper, you know that we both love trees and I couldn't resist. No tree climbing or hanging upside down though. You wouldn't want a broken hipped Old Dog would you?

This picture was actually taken for you at Villa Olmo on the fabulous Lake of Como! It's a pretty impressive specimen! Enjoy!

@kus-knee (The Old Dog)

Nice work, deadline is tonight, so great job getting it in!

Thanks Old Dog!

Me looking up symbolizes your rising reputation! 70! You don't look a day over 69!

Obviously, I age well!

Thanks @kus-knee!

Wooohooo papa pepper on the big SEVEN ZERO! Wooo woooo!!!

As for your photo contest. I would like to enter with the following photo!

Just look in the reflection to see the drone.... and my mask!

Hey you said to be Anonymous! Haha

Congrats on the 70 Rep my brother and I hope you have a wonderful and eventful event!

Ah yes... Guy Faux!

I like the drone too, like your Super-Hot Pepper Challenge entry, this is very creative and original too!

Thanks a bunch, I actually put a lot of thought and time into this. I would of had a lot more fun doing it but as you can see the weather did not permit other more wild photos. Never fear, more adventures and stories are near.

Steemon my friend!~

Your originality stands out, and the thought you put into it is apparent!

Winner should be announced on Wednesday!

Haha, wow! The whale's kind words. Thank you Papapeppahh, I hope our paths cross in this life. It would be a grand adventure I am sure.

I am no whale by any means... But thanks for your kind words and excellent entry!

At least you looked..

If STEEM goes up to $50 USD, you just made $250.00 !!!!!

Is this still open??? I read it all and the comments, that one photo of the b/w texture, for 5 Steem, more than one person answered is of an armadillo skin right? IDK how to "link" to the proof like you asked but the posts are right here LOL

A few of the minor contests are still open, plus the photo contest for a chance at 50 STEEM.

Will you be submitting a photo?

I don't know if I will be able to, just due to my injuries getting in the way most days with things.

Right on, completely understandable!

Is the tree photo contest still open? If so, I will try to get my entry in tomorrow.

Still open and please do!!

Papa will be waiting.

I thought I would get done with work earlier today. I will have to get my photo submission in tomorrow. Sorry, I am just rarely home during daylight hours.
