Day 26 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.


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. Yesterday, our QUICK DRAW WINNER was:

@craigcryptoking again!



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 24 total Bonus Points











The secret Bonus Bonus Point thing for the last round was to have a pepper in your selfie! Congrats to all who had a pepper in the photo!






No one was eliminated last round.


After a long wait, it is finally here, and you knew that it was coming! The "Flamingo Shoe Telephone!" YES!!!! To qualify for this round, take a selfie of yourself doing the "Flamingo Shoe Telephone!"

See that footwear next to my head? Yup, I'm pretending that it is a phone! LOL! It is not really a phone, I am only pretending! Hilarious! In reality, it is just a shoe! Ha ha!

Also, do you see how I am raising one leg and how you can see my foot in the air in the selfie? That way I look like a real flamingo, talking on a shoe phone!

Don't worry, it is not just fun for me! Now you can all try too! Fun for everyone!

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

Reply to this post with your qualifying selfie by 7:45 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!

PLEASE REMEMBER - If you enter more than one photo, you will not be allowed to be valid for receiving bonus points. Make it count!


The current prize pool is 400 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

10 seconds timer! Hello???


@papa-pepper i did it wrong. I bent my body my feet up to my ear so the shoe looks like a phone and that's not what you requested. The second to me who did it right deserves the quick draw. It's @ewuoso! Yehey! 😄

Nice one @dearjyoce between you and me we shall keep @bluelightbandit in check ;) Cheer$:)

Dude, the whole picture/phone thing has screwed me up big time. I cant even come close til I figure this thing out. Makes it more fun when theres more people in the mix too, so welcome my man to the slight of hand club!

My bad boy, brother from another mother, china from another... well you know how it goes... Let me just say this.. You raised the bar high my boet.. and I am pretty new here... but what you chaps don't know... Is I am as competitive as .......... game on baby..... game on my main man .. heheheheee... 10 points my man .. I eat ten points for a snack ... lol .. kidding bro... lol .. loving this matey.. Cheer$:)..PS" Nothing wrong with a little bit of a psycho mind... .... well you can fill in the blanks... haha.. Cheer$;),, PS 6 amstels down, but I'll still be up in three hours for quick draw see you then!! Hoping my 'fast read' works a little better than last night ... lol ... it was horrid.

You awake, punkin?

I told you to stop calling me that.

Working on the next round for you guys!

So cool! Good job.

bonus point

Finally found the best after about 60 selfies


Second place my friend! Great job remembering the foot!

hahahahahah. You got me confused for a while. i thought you bent your leg at first and i said to myself papa has decided to kill me. hahahahahah.

its getting crazy

Papa is turning up the heat!

do i get anything as the second

Only pride my friend, and the knowledge that you will be moving on to day 27

@ecoinstant thats what i tell myself whenever i not getting any bonus point in a round 😂

That was i thought and did! I thought how others will do this! 😂

You deserved the quick draw. I did it wrong.

lets just have fun my dear

@dearjyoce No you didn't, you did a great job. I did it wrong properly, or properly wrong :)

"Properly wrong". Yes. Indeed.

So stressful this has become! 🙃

Gotta see a foot in the air to qualify too. Last reminder for anyone, so pay attention people or get eliminated! Have fun!

EDIT: So this one was pretty hard to figure out a way to do cool or fun....shy of buying a flamingo costume or a LOT of pink paint.

But I think this isn't too bad. The shirt is pink too, but lighter than the shorts. Figured the background was fitting.

Need to see that Flamingo leg in the air to qualify!

You look too serious for that pose!

Stunt for goodness sake you look too cute please change that pic you making me confuse. 😂😂😂

How about now?

😂😂😂 you making me laugh so hard i started to cry 😂😂😂

Then my work is done. LOL


do you know what you just did is a dance step in my country

Call me a dancing fool my friend. But in your country do I have to have my thumb up and a shoe to my ear?

minus d shoe. all others included

Nice day for dancing... isn't that called the sprinkler?

Well played brutha, well played. A bunch of us just went for the shou phone pic.


Where is the Flamingo in that?

Also, I'm not giving out any more reminders, so some may get eliminated.

Hey brutha, threw a question at ya on chat about doing a behond the scenes blog for the contest.

If you get a chance, take a peek and let me know.

Now ive got to brainstorm how to make a "cool shot" from this challenge.

Face makeup. Lots of pink face makeup. Just

Don't think I won't.

You'll get a bonus point from me for that! (I use treeplanter)

Alas....I only went for pink clothes.

I don't smile when I am in a serious conversation with the head of the Flamingo Shoe Telephone company.


The hat....the shirt.....I'm not saying you look like Freddy Krueger, but you might share a clothing store.

You look like some archaeologist going on some mission. Very cool! And i like your expression. Even without the smile, you look good :)

He does look like an expeditionary! I really enjoy V's series - reasons not to smile.

I do it for the points! ;p

Ah, this was not the right answer - but I will leave it as an illustration for a suggestion to an app I am testing.

V close the door in case someone see what he's doing and think he's tingtong! 😂

Lol! I feel like a shoe phone could be a thing because of this...


I hope this qualifies because this is really cool. But from what I understood, I think you need to be standing. get that cleared from @papa-pepper.

Thank you for your help!

Its nice to see you back in here! You can still particpate in the madness with your witty comments ;p

Ouch! I'll say it qualifies.

Thank you... I'm icing it!

HAha this one is best

LOL Sexy shoes mate!

The phone comes in handy too!

You are one of a kind.

Ha ha... just like the rest of us that are still going after 26 days!

We are still going strong! Someone once told me that a selfie a day for a year was a powerful activity, this is the first time I have ever considered such a thing.

I'm sure all will be tired of my face if it goes that long... ha ha

I think thats a pun!

I'm still waiting for an ear or an eye to show itself!

This is slightly terrifying...

Scares me too! My anonymity is now sealed... like the JFK files.

Lol! After I saw no one did it right. I did... But looks like he gave it to @dearjyoce ... but technically... it's not what was requested....

I'll let it slide, but only for her. 😍
That's my slipper phone. It's got soul/sole. LOL!

Edit: Please let me know if this is okay... Cause it's a slipper. But one I wear outside... I just like my ankles to be warm. Plus, it chopped my face off trying to get my foot! I'll update, if needed!

Hahaha this looks like so much fun for you! Love how you are laughing :)

Fun is a BIG part of my every day. 🙃

I think there are going to be eliminations this round 😮

Maybe... but papa's pretty lenient... and gives many chances. Cause he's so nice. 😍

Seems like he's ready to make some cuts; maybe he's shocked at our tenacity.

Lol! It does seem to be down to the serious play-uhz...

Not possible!


Yeah. Probably not. We are pretty awesome. 😎

It sometimes astounds me just how awesome we really are.


Footwear is footwear, you got it.

Thanks, love! 😍

@papa-pepper i really did it wrong coz what I did is put on the shoe on my feet and bend it up to my ear for the shoe to be look like a phone. @carrieallen is right it's not what you requested. Please pass the crown to the one who did it right. 😁

You are the sweetest!

It's so hard to get the quick draw! I read everything REALLY well and by then... like 5 people have posted. LOL!

You deserve a point, just for being awesome. Maybe he'll give it to the second place person too. 😉

Ohhh cutipie thank you and honestly flamingo word is new to my vocabulary 😂 till now so i have to google it. And I think it's just right to award the right one.

Oh no! I didn't even think of that!

Though I'm sure you've googled it by now.

They are hilarious pink and white birds with SUPER long legs that often stand on one.

We even have plastic ones here that get passed around people's yards as a prank fundraiser. So... to get them removed you have to pay!

Image from HERE

Yes, I understood we had to stand on one leg like a flamingo. HeHe! I didn't know that I could still do it! LOL!

Congrats on your accomplishment!

I had a similar one two days ago with the challenge. I got upside down on exercise bars! I do believe my arms hurt a touch today though. LOL!

Well thanks! I am 70 years old too. So, I'm quite proud of myself to be still hanging in there! LOL!

Dang, girl! Work it!

70 years young!

Used the rings to help “get a leg up” on the competition! Hahaha!


Very clever!

Thanks! Took me 10 minutes and quite a few colorful words before I was able to hook my foot! Can’t wait to see what tomorrow’s challenge will be!!

What a fun daily surprise!

You made it seem effortless in the photo ;p

And there I was standing on just one leg, holding a shoe in one hand and an iPhone in the other! I wasn't sure if we could use props or not, or I would have done. ;-) Good shot!

Thank you! Took a bit of work but I was determined. I was glad to see your post yesterday - and it earned you a bonus point!!

Yes, it did! Hanging in there!

How could I stand out from the crowd on this one? I got on top of my two story house and stood on one leg, while on the edge of the roof. See how small my 115 pound Rottweiler looks?
I call this photo: CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?

You’re insane! And does your wife know you stole her shoe??!!🤣🤣

LOL You're right, I am! And I was sure to place it back exactly where I got it from, along with the 200 other pairs.

It might just be a lunatic papa pepper is looking for!

Haha, he shall look no further!

I'll let you go for the silver - but I'm playing for gold


Yeah, I thought about that the other day when someone was talking about getting up really early in the morning and I was thinking... This is just for the bonus contest that's really only worth about 17.23 USD and some bragging rights. You don't have to get up early for the big pot, you've got 24 hours for that one. I got a feeling this is going to drag out for a really, really....really, long time. lol

I think papas got some tricks up his sleeve yet, but in short - I agree with you ;p

Haha! You're crazy, but I think we all are!

Yep, and that's why this contest will run til after the New Year lol!

I will have to figure out how to upload directly from my iPhone when I go on vacation in December!!!

You and me both, I cant do it either.

I think I did it one time before by uploading the photo to someplace else and adding it from there. I will need to practice it before I need to use it again. Lol!

I've got a phone call from papa-P


Oh, beautiful pink flamingo )

hehehe. Thats a female Pink Flamingo . 😍😍😍 Thank you.

Haha this is cute you pink flamingo :)

hehehe. thank you @sharoonyasir. 😂😂😂

It's really hard for me to stand in one feet and my feet looks like an Flamingo. 😂😂😂😂✌✌✌✌

Thats what you get for working remotely on a holiday! ;p

Confused Patriot ecoinstante day 26 flamingo telephone selfie.jpg

Pork belly prices do not respect the myriad of Colombian Holidays!

"Sell all pork bellies NOW!" BUY PEPPERS... HOT HOT HOT!

This is why improv works! It just builds😂

Thank you! This is where I wanted to say - I do it for the points!

Hahaha I know:P


You are the pinkest one I have seen so far!

Good pose, poor optics... captured on the edge of a cell phone lens!


I'm traveling right now everyone, so I'll try to get the next post up by 10 p.m. Central Standard Time, roughly 2 hours from now. Thank you for your patience, don't mean to mess up your selfie game.


Glad you posted this. I've been sitting here for the last 15 minutes refreshing your page every few seconds. Now I can get cleaned up and go to bed. Not getting the QD tonight y'all.

Cheers @dwells! Since it's 2 am now i try to take a nap and maybe a good sleep now lol.. nyt nyt

Well the bandit that never sleeps gets the bonus....

Have a nice nap Jyoce

Take care, be safe!

Drive first - selfie later ☝😇👌

Looks like I should wait about 13 minutes....

3 mins more

2 mins more

I am an old man, I don't bend like that any more!

Very nice loafer though 😇

We seniors gotta hang in there till the end! Go for it!!

I feel like Maxwell Smart.

Ah, your reference to Get Smart warms my heart!! Where is 99 when you need her?

"Mind like a steel trap!"

It pays to have long arms. LOL! I could barely get all of me in the shot! :-)

My arms also act as selfie sticks :)

I'm a happy pink flamingo :-)

I am in love with your linolium!

Thanks, I love it, too :-)

Very stylish tree pose Snooway!

You don't look as if it was an effort for you at all. LOL!
