Team of Two Contest - Engage and Create Together !

in contest •  10 months ago  (edited)


Idea is to promote and reward authors reaching out to other authors on Steemit in the spirit of driving engagement within the blockchain. To be interested in what others are doing is the most basic step of engagement. And who doesn’t want others to be interested in what they are doing? In this spirit, both authors are benefiting by connecting and finding another and forming a team!

Team of Two – The foundation of partnership!

Find someone on Steemit whose work have always been of interest to you and create something together :D

In the spirit of this contest, @veryspider and @scrawly have teamed up to provide pooled resources to encourage other creators on Steemit to also find their (dance) partner!

The contest is about Art and Engagement!

Both of the authors must contribute into creating a work of art together.

These are examples of accepted contributions, but there may be more variations, don’t hesitate to ask in the comments if what you are doing will be accepted :)

  1. Partner A sketches, Partner B colours
  2. Partner A creates art, Partner B creates accompanying story (maximum 1000 words, pls)
  3. Partner A writes script, Partner B draws a comic strip
  4. Partner A and B work together on creating an artwork

Photography works are accepted as long as they are yours. But the post must have a picture, be it drawing or photography :D


• 1st Place: 5 STEEMs each for Partner A and B (10 STEEMs)
• 2nd Place: 3 STEEMs each for Partner A and B (6 STEEMs)
• 3rd Place: 1 STEEM each for Partner A and B (2 STEEMs)

Total Prize Pool: 18 STEEMs

Winners may also be featured in Champions’ compilation post which will be published on @veryspider's blog.


For our first rodeo, we thought we should pick something exciting that most authors would be able to participate in, so the theme of our first Team of Two contest is: ……POWERS!!!

It can be superpowers like the heroes of Marvel and DC universes, but it can be powers of the High Elves of the high fantasy Tolkien universe. Basically, anything with extraordinary abilities, be it the power to defeat any enemies with a SINGLE PUNCH or the powers of warging into a beast form despite that you are a cripple, or even the powers to transform and change your clothes into different outfits! Anything goes :D

Find a partner and create a post that features the topic of POWERS (with a picture in it), and you will be eligible to enter this contest!


  1. Upvote and Resteem this post
  2. Only one entry per team
  3. If entering, reply in the comment with your partnership’s members (both members must be on Steemit)
  4. Art / Photo must be new and has been created for this contest – and it must be safe for work
  5. Entries may be nominated on one author’s blog, and posted as a comment to this post
  6. Entries should have a clear explanation of which author does which part. Progress shots are highly recommended <3
  7. Use #teamoftwo as tag in your entry post
  8. Deadline is two weeks from the time this post is dropped (since it will be a collaborative effort, we thought giving participants two weeks would suit the theme)

Because of the length of the contest, there will be a second contest announcement post to make sure those that are entering in the second week may still resteem and participate. The schedule is, as follows:

  • This post (today) - @veryspider
  • Second announcement (a week from now) - @scrawly
  • Contest is closed (two weeks from now)
  • Winners’ announcement (approximately three weeks from now) - @veryspider

Winners are decided by how good the collaboration is, by presentation of the artworks, by success in expression but also by judges' preferences.


Any questions, don’t be shy and ask in the comments :D

To illustrate a joint effort, here is @veryspider and @scrawly ‘s collaborative effort!

@veryspider made the sketch - link:

@scrawly coloured it :D

This contest is borne out of the project managed and initiated by @tcpolymath, The Mesopotamians. Those of you who are active and engaged with Steemit as a blogging platform, and wish to grow your account and do your bits to help the platform succeed, you can read more about it here and here.

Basically, @tcpolymath is using his own funds to provide free upvotes to select users that he has identified to be consistent quality bloggers whose primary intentions are to give back into the platform through retention of valuable content generators and growth of said accounts. He is always on the look out for quality authors, so if you're keen to grow your Steemit, give @themesopotamians your support and reach out to @tcpolymath :)

@veryspider is at Level 2, trying to level up to 3, and @scrawly's at Level 1, working hard to level up to 2 :D

Any questions about The Mesopotamians, please don't hesitate to ask in the comments section :D

Innovative idea! very good initiative... I must find a partner...

Good luck @lady-idra <3 Love your stuff~ Hope you can find an interesting partner :)

Have you read the other commenters on this post? Maybe it is a good way to browse for a potential team!

Looks like this gonna be interesting!!

Gat to go and source for a partnet now.

Good luck, @maxijgcomm :D Hope you can team up with someone cool~

Very cool idea! Maybe someone wants to partner up with me? I make illustrations and photos :-)

@jewlzie seems to indicate that she writes ! :D maybe check her blog and if you like her style, reply to her comment here to team up? :D

Sound interesting, jd a great way to involve more people, I can see this growing and becoming a great contest..
Would love to participate myself.. May be the second option, I can create art and the partner can write a story.. And it be nice to learn something, as it's really hard for me to write about art, expression through words isn't my forte.. Well may be will join if I find a partner..

I hope it can help Steemians earn some STEEMs AND also prompts us to be more connected with what other Steemians are doing :)

@jewlzie seems to indicate that she writes ! :D maybe check her blog and if you like her style, reply to her comment here to team up? :D

Will surely do.. I ain't finding enough time in between work nd travel abut will connect over the weekend.
Love. Swati

Hi! If you’re interested in teaming up then just @ me and we can work something out :)

Posted using Partiko iOS

Sure sure.. Would love to team up with you.. Give me few hours, I will connect with you for how can we proceed, would love to know your ideas.. Did you check out my artworks, does it look like something you can work with.. As I do a bit of abstract

Posted using Partiko Android

I did check your page and it does look like something I can probably come up with. We can either go about it two ways:
a) You depict a superpower you've brainstormed and then show me the picture, passing the torch so that I can write something to go along with it
b) We can brainstorm a superpower together and do it more step by step.

If you want a contact I have a discord, just message me on Jewlzie#0919 :)

Hey, that sounds nice.. Let's talk later today. Will msg you, I am sorry for not responding earlier ,been a hectic few days.. Not sure if I would be able to participate this time.. Festivals, office and travel... All at same is tiring.. But let's try..

Hey! Hola, soy Eliana :) Si lograste conseguir compañero? Si todavía no te gustaría hacer grupo conmigo?

¡Hola!, soy María, mucho gusto~.
La verdad, sigo sin compañero 😄 y claro que me gustaría que seamos compañeras🎉.

Mucho gusto! Y me alegra haber conseguido compañera :33 Podemos escribirnos por hotmail? O por facebook? Mi correo es [email protected] y mi facebook es Ichigo Izumi, tengo la foto de un perrito negro de avatar ahí.

Sii 😸✌¡Ya te busco por facebook!

I got a temp drlegation and I selected your contest as example of engagement proposal, eith your permission I borrow your cute banner of course linked to the contest Link will be up tomorrow

Of course !!! <3 Would be super awesome to get signal boost ! Thank you so much, @yidneth <3

Such a good idea, spider! This contest is going to make some awesome results!

I hope so, @corpsvalues ....... ahhh, we're trying to shore up some energy in steemit despite the general slow down of the blogging platform... Create some excitement and maybe make people look at other people's stuff and get some engagement going !

So when steem is back on track, the quality contents of the blockchain will also be in a (relatively) good shape???

You seem to have a strong community built around your posting, you and @scrawly both.

wow... interesting.... Actually I just make a cool anime character together with @hime.sama unfortunately it's just a guy without power 😀
I think I don't have enough time to make another one, but I'll resteem it tho...

aaaaaaah you did? that's so cool ! i will check it out, @hananan <3

quite an interesting idea ;)
I'd like to participate...the next time if this collab contest is going to have another round :)

I am hoping it will have another round, ... but let's see if this one is successful or not hahaha

what do you mean? it will be successful for sure ;)

True. Partnership is key.

Posted using Partiko iOS

Ah thank you for the resteem, @stellabelle !!! :D

Anyone? :D

I think @jewlzie is still without a partner... and also @visionaryart

Both are amazing Steemians.... like yourself ! (GOSH I LOVE YOUR BLOG SO MUCH, @frejafri * ___ * !!!)

thank you! Oh I'd love to create something with @jewlzie or @visionaryart! Both amazing artists! Won't be able to make it for this deadline though I don't think! But I'd defenitely be up for it in another round!

Entry #3.
Good luck :).                  


Nice entry!!! Good luck :D

Thanks. crossed my fingers

I found a partner!! But I think we won't make it for the deadline, will there be another teamoftwo contest after the deadline of this one, @veryspider??

aaaaah, i just replied to your comment above XD but yes, we will try to run another one in October :D

Oh yes I see, well, cool! me and @mushroomdreams will try to create something! :D

Ooooh... I only saw this now... Do you suppose someone could color the Griffin picture sometime?

Only new arts can be entered !!! Like it has to be made for this contest, but don't worry there will be future rounds, i hope :D

Also I can't enter my stuff cuz I'm running the contest XD;;;;

Sure... not for the purpose of the competition...

We shall be adding a credit line for the cover art with every episode of The Autumn Keep for you based on the new cover. When someone colors it for us then we can add them in on the credits as well.

Like a movie... or an anime. XD ;P

XD XD sounds great !!!

....... waits waits for the next chapter :D

I know... -_-

I was sick for two days and spent most of the time sleeping. Yesterday was my first day back and I still needed an early night. I actually woke up in the early hours now and am going to sleep in a few minutes before needing to get up for our Friday.

So as for an estimation of the next episode... I am guessing that it will be... Saturday. At best. Haha. :P

aaaah you should rest ! being sick isn't fun at all...

and dont worry about me, i'm just a pest sometimes XD i can wait, though ! <3

Haha, it's fine. I prefer to be pestered by people who want to read my work!

So we're a little late in entering but we'd like to through our hat in the ring.


Yay ! Great team !!!

Here is our entry for the contest. Can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!


Thank you for entering ! Entry received !!! :D
