Day 10 of the Daily Steemit Selfie Challenge begins now!

Our registered players are competing against each other in an elimination endurance contest where their selfies must be posted on a daily basis and must meet the theme qualifications. Not only must they post their qualifying selfies prior to the deadline to avoid elimination, they are also competing against one another for bonus points. In each round, I will reward at least two selfies with bonus points.


Each day, I will be rewarding one player each day with a "quick draw" bonus point for being the first to reply with a qualifying selfie. In our last round, our QUICK DRAW WINNER was:




Each day I will notify you of your current Bonus Point Leader. Remember, whoever gets the most by the end of the contest will win 1 Limited Edition STEEM "COMMUNITY" 1 oz Silver Round! Here is your current leader:

@bluelightbandit with 7 total Bonus Points


Once again, your creativity is top notch! Also, I’m glad that everyone was safe with the knives… well, almost everyone. Hard to choose, as always, but here your go.

Additionally, please take WARNING: Tomorrow I will be getting more stingy with these, so fewer will be handed out.... I guess some of you will have to step it up a notch!












The secret Bonus Bonus Point thing for the last round was the word “pepper.” Any selfie with the word “pepper” in it gets a bonus bonus point! I wonder what I'll be looking for this time!



Looks like we are still losing players...



For Round 10, you just have to have water in the selfie with you.

Please remember as well, that the goal is to have all players take a new, qualifying selfie each day to enter into this contest.


I will be offline on Friday night and during the day on Saturday. Therefore I will shortened the response time for this post. You have roughly 21 hours to reply to this post.

Reply to this post with your qualifying selfie by 6:00 pm (CST) tomorrow to avoid elimination. As always, no entry post is required, but you are free to make a post featuring your entry if you want to. By entering this contest you are giving me full permission to use your entries in future contest posts. Thanks and have fun!


The current prize pool is 185 SBD, not including Bonus Points. It will continue to grow on a daily basis! That means that the longer you hang in there, the larger it gets!

Until next time…

Don’t waste your time online, invest it with

I just want that bonus prize!😊

ALmost... 2nd...

I'm getting my response time wittled down.

Why did you waste all of that time putting it in a cup?

It was already in the cup. I had to run to the kitchen to get it. Ok ok, I'm a big guy, I didn't exactly run, it's more like lumbering.

I missed the QD bonus so here is my second submission @papa-pepper.

I have the beautiful sunrise sky, and if you look closely there is 2 ducks on the pond. Also there is a tree, which is a plant.

I did look closely lol😁 That's a beautiful pond!

Is that your place?

One of my parameters for looking at a new place is having a lake/pond on the property.


The water is in the glass.

Poppa Pepper. make it rain!

hahaha - I was thinking of doing that - but I was inside and it was night time :)

This came out scarier than expected!

Hahahah i love it

I will give u 1sbd if u dont make a bonus

Thank you!

you are welcome

That is pretty cool....scary or not. LOL

Haha. I tried to be creative

Thanks. I tried to be creative

What better way to get water in a photo than getting a little wet.

That’s immersing your self in the challenge 👍

very clean entry :)

My baby said: Mommy, drink this one!!! 😂😂😂 My god! hahaha.

Rule #1: keep your rations dry!
Steemit Baked Beans came out dry as a whistle.

Is that from the steemit shop?

Yes, they are delicious! (Shhh.... but really I created the label as a prop for my jungle selfie and glued it onto a can of organic black beans)

"Feel the Rush"IMG_20171020_161528.jpg

You wanted us to step it up @papa-pepper well, I don't know what the temperature of this water is but there is some serious shrinkage going on I can promise you!


Been having a LOT of trouble posting this, too bad this contest is going on while the platform is behaving badly. Anyway... here is my pic, after hours and hours of trying. In it I have included earth, wind, fire, water, the sky is seen through the window, I have minerals in the form of silver bullion, gold dust, quartz cluster from Mt. Ida, Arkansas, plant (Peace Lily, my living "spell" for humanity), animal (that is a cat's ear) and a piece of frozen green pepper. There is a chalice and blade, fork and spoon. My hands were unavailable for this picture as one was holding a cat and the other was holding a camera, but hands were used to make this photo.

Yes I feel you. I've been trying hours before it was posted.

Yeah, steemit has kind of been a mess lately.

Two more pics cause I’m traveling and a little bored!


I went to the dermatologist yesterday and he told me not to wear makeup until I get an allergy test taken, which is 3 weeks yay for selfies!!! BUT I'M IN IT TO WIN IT!! This challenge gave me a great opportunity to go check out some natural beauty on this georgeous day. @papa-pepper, do you recognize where we are? C360_2017_10_20_12_14_31_490

I love that lake, a lot of good memories. You look fine with no makeup, plus it's cheaper!

Thanks! I get some of it from the dollar tree, but I think that may be part of the problem haha!

Nice faucet and counter-tops!

Thank you! You are still killing it with the bonus points! Well done!

poor thing!! My stepdaughter send us a picture like that as a pregnancy announcement :)

Haha, great way to announce it :) 2 weeks left till due date for me, sick every morning :P

You poor thing!! I can relate and remember. I had three kids and sometimes I wonder how we forget so quickly and get pregnant again :)

Thanks for the support. Yes, Fortunately, we women are programmed so we forget how bad we had it, if we had remembered, the humanity would die out :P

Had to have a spring buck in :)

LOL... who's winning today? You a WP fan?

Just got home yes and we won so now W P on the Sharks ;)

Fire, pepper infused, flying saucer ice, for the 'perfect' early morning drink. Tin hat with pepper 'feather' to boot, Cheer$:)



we want to see you drink it :)

Oooopppsss watwr almost runs out...

do we get bonus points for managing to be the last person standing with 0 bonus points?

Haha of only! Or maybe a "late draw"? The last person to post a selfie before it ends? 😉

A little selfie experiment fun. Took a bit to get the right ones and NO, this water is not warm even if this is SoCal. LOL

I love that splash! Bonus point!!!

Thanks @dearjoyce , it did end up getting one. You know I gotta step it up if I'm gonna catch bluelight. LOL

Those shots are amazing! They don't need a contest to be worth admiring! (but they're excellent entries too ;-))

Thanks @re-engineer most appreciated. Was trying to figure out how to make 'em pop and thought "hey, go pro."

So using the photo setting of 30 frames per 2 seconds....jumped and pressed the button. Did it a few times until I got the timing down.

Hey - I'd upvote that more than once if possible ;-)

That's a pepper or a persimmon. Probably a pepper (in keeping with our theme). Why so white? Condensation?

yes i think its called condensation. I always keep my peppers in the freezer that way i can use then when ever i'm ready.

I thought for water I would go by the beach I guess it’s to much to hope today’s bonus is to include a bird 9FBF4FD1-8588-4B8C-831A-22CEB9CA31A0.jpeg
Or perhaps a bird in flight 😂 B34BC106-7A44-4BF6-BB1C-3B45BCB36B72.jpeg
If not here is just the water and Bahbahra and a little of me2479B2AB-02A0-4951-B488-8060655C5337.jpeg

LOL.. Great selfies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was such a good, good idea. Love these!

Thats where I went and got in it!

I did consider that, but not as young as I use to be :)

Lol! Congrats @dearjoyce :D I couldn't figure out how to upload from my phone. LOL!

Also, this was my quickdraw attempt.
Killed by Joyce again!

Tomorrow I shall update with better water. I actually have the BEST waters around here.... Just you wait...

As promised! Me with a waterfall!

I went on a short hike from my house and found a few little falls. Almost fell in, though not at this location.

And here's the location from front. I was laying on that little flat area. And almost dropped my phone.
Note to self: Get one of those finger hole phone cases...

And finally, me fake falling. Because it's hard to snap a pic when it's real.

Edit to add: Holy crap! Those are HUGE! My bad. I'll go back to shrinking again. So big... No one needs to see my face that big. Whoa.

Simplest way is to go like you are writing a new blog post, then just upload the image and copy the link address then post that address in the comments section.

This is my strategy!

Exactly!!! @dwells It still takes time though depending on your internet speed🕐🕜🕑

I think it all happens much faster on my computer. Today I tried (for like 30 seconds) on my phone and then ran back and posted.

I'll get her. 😎

Nor can I . . Load pics from phone. . Any ideas ??? Cheer$;)

@dwells tried that for some reason doesnt work on my phone. Samsung J16??

Why you're so pretty?😍

Lol! Good genes! 😉


So this was a fun way to start my Saturday morning.

I've got a cool idea I told my wife. you throw water in my face and I'll get a selfie of it. She was a bit dubious about it, but agreed to give it a go.

Many glasses of water later we still hadn't been able to get our timing right, so we ended up with the following shot instead.


We also tried some gifs to see if that would work (do gifs qualify @papa-pepper?)


My wife's arm was getting a bit tired by now and her aim was a bit off - missed me completely!


It probably didn't help that she was laughing so much ;-)

Thanks @papa-pepper for a fun start to the weekend ;-)

i'll wait till i get home to do something creative. Thanks for my bonus point. yay

Hey big @papa-pepper, great choices this round! I hate I had to miss the beginning, I was on the road most of the evening. I have a quick question though, I had the word pepper in my entry post, does that mean that I get a bonus point also? Just wondering, thanks!

DARN it isn't hard enough already. But that seems correct.

Why do you hate me so?

lol I was just checking

watch out for him!

I'm coming for him @papa-pepper.....but he's tough. Gonna be an uphill battle.

yup, my bad. missed that.

It's all good man, thanks for going back and checking!

So, @papa-pepper you are going to get stingy with the bonus points right when I have zero? Boo Hoo!! :-( Do I get a bonus point for being the oldest player? I bet I am! LOL! I have rarely done selfies before, too! Did I miss a change in the rules about selfies? That happens when you are in your eightieth decade of life! :-( It appears to be OK to have someone else take the shot now. Am I correct?

It is, better get to it soon!

Phew! I made it. Had a rough few days with a sick kitty. :-(
