Quite a few industrious Steemians run contests regularly. Here is a list of the ones we know about at the moment. All of these have been running for months so you can count on their posted schedule.

Be sure to check each account and look for the contest name as the links change each week. Also remember to read the full contest description as the rules and prize values sometimes change.


The folks over at @freewritehouse run three contests each week. All of them are designed to encourage community engagement and highlight other's work. Besides the prizes from the @freewritehouse account, they are always interested in hearing from anyone who will sponsor a contest and so they can offer even bigger prizes.

Favorite Freewrite

A Favorite Freewrite You Read contest runs every Tuesday for just 24 hours. You need to read some freewrites written (you can read this post to see what they are), and then comment on the contest posts about which ones you liked best and why. If they choose your comment you win units of SBI.

Favorite Freewrite Poem

Recommend your Favorite Freewrite Poem is a poetry version of the Favorite Freewrite contest and it runs every Friday. Make a comment about a freewrite poem you loved and you could win SBI units. But be quick! When Friday is over, so is the contest - until the next week that is.

We Write

We-Write is a new challenge where two writers create a single story using the freewrite prompt. It runs every other Wednesday with a prize of 4 SBI divided among winners.


Finish the Story Contest is run by @f3nix via the @bananafish account which now hosts the contest which runs every Wednesday. He posts the beginning of a story, and you finish it. Then you post your complete story for everyone to read. One of the prizes is SBI units. The important thing to know about this contest is that it's an ongoing creativity workshop, so if you miss one deadline you can participate in the next.

Mizu No Oto is founded on the belief that every image has a haiku. It’s an @bananafish contest curated by @marcoriccardi, a real haijin (haiku poet) and it's a great occasion to learn this form of poetry.

Paying it Forward

In the spirit of helping new Steemians, this contest focuses on curating great content and is run by @pifc. It runs weekly on Mondays and asks that you find two "High Quality Original Content Blog Posts" to recommend for curation. Four judges decide which recommendations were the best and multiple winners get SBI units. Follow @pifc to see the latest contest post and read it for full details.

ZapFic Writing Contest


Like super short stories? Try writing one in 232 characters or fewer for your chance to win SBI in this contest run by Every Wednesday he posts a new prompt to use for your very short story. You can post your story wherever you want, just make sure to keep it under 232 characters.

Steemit World Map Challenge

Travel the world with your fellow Steemians in the #swmchallenge run by @runicar. You simply need to share a blog about a place you visited and share it on the map (read the post to see how). You’ll need pictures and good descriptions if you want to get noticed and win the SBI units.

Caption Contest

Help celebrate digital art by creating creative captions for the week’s selected picture. Read all the rules carefully to be sure your entry qualifies for the SBI prizes.

Thank you economy


Every week you can visit the Thank You Economy contest and tag someone who has helped you. When you do, both of you could win SBI units from the ever growing prize pool!

What is it?

Inspired by a game she played with the kids at her niece's birthday one year, this game is straightforward. She posts an image, and you guess what it is. The rules are simple enough, guess right and win an SBI share.

Punday Monday

From the creator:

What is Punday?
Punday is the best day. It's the day we post a topic upon which you are invited to pun in the comments for a chance at SBI shares. You get to read all the incredible puns, and you can try your hand at puns, and you can just bask in the warmth and love that punsters offer. I am your Puntender, and I serve hot puncakes with Mapun Syrpun.

SBI & GRC Contest


Love free stuff + crypto + science? This contest is for you! Simply resteem this post, upvote, comment and follow me to enroll. And get a chance to win 1 SBI unit and 50 GRC (Gridcoin).

Steemexplorer’s Daily


@steemexplorers is an account aimed at achieving growth through helping others find resources and network with other community members in an effort to improve user experiences and overall knowledge of the Steem platform. The @steemexplorers daily contests as of now require either an upvote on the daily post OR a comment to be submitted in which the applicant provides something that they have learned about the Steem platform or services on the Steem Blockchain that they find useful and can be beneficial to others.

A winner is selected at random from each daily contest and a unit awarded to the respective winner with a results post showing the wallet transaction from @steemexplorers to @steembasicincome sponsoring the winner which can then be verified by anyone who's interested in confirming our giveaways.

The comments that people can leave to gain entry can be anything useful, as little as teaching something helpful with markdown format, their thoughts on certain upvote services or apps like partiko for example, things like @dustsweeper or whatever else they can think of that helps

How to get on the recurring contest list

Do you run a regular contest that you’d like to see in our recurring contest section? We have some simple criteria you need to have to be included:

  • SBI units must be part of the prizes given out.
  • Contest needs to be running 5 weeks or 10 contests on a consistent schedule, whichever comes first.

If you think your contest qualifies let us know in the comments or on our Discord channel and we’ll check it out.


If you want to get involved, or to increase the basic income that you receive, enrollment is pretty straightforward:

Just send 1 STEEM to @steembasicincome. Include the name of a Steemian to sponsor in the transaction memo (preceded by @). You and the person you sponsor will each receive 1 unit in the program. You can sponsor any active Steemian, it does not have to be a current member.

If you're unclear, please check out our full transaction memo guidelines and then let us know if you have any questions.

The official currency for enrollment is STEEM. If we choose to accept SBD without refunding it, you do not receive extra value for it.

Enrollments are processed automatically every 144 minutes. Confirmation transactions are still manual and typically are sent within 2-3 days. Even if you have not received a welcome transaction, you can check your status using !sbi status.

@steembasicincome / @steem-ua : i'll put the reply on both. I withdrew the small delegation for @tyrnannoght because i expect very little to happen there in next two to three months due to third party interference as i am to be trained and cured of my attitude problem by SBS VanMol (lol)
but , just so you know its nothing to do with you, i appreciate your services very much but keeping delegation on while i'm not posting would be a waste of resources as i am quite pragmactical when my head is clear (and that's not a spelling mistake).
I'll put it back when i feel i can move on with the programming, and hope to increase the amount later as well.

In the meantime, thanks for everything so far and steer the course pl0x ... dont let the ship sink despite poor management hee hee

enjoy (its only for @tyrnannoght, the other will keep doing what they do which isnt much atm but to spam a game thats not being developed from now until ... is a bit much to my own personal liking so until then .... )


I think this might be the first time somebody explained their reasoning for removing a delegation. Usually they just disappear. Thanks for letting us know, and I hope things work out for you.


You rock, @steembasicincome!

Thanks! We had intentionally designed SBI to be a source of ongoing funding to support contests and curation initiatives.

Make an initial investment (or commit to out of pocket for the first xx weeks), and then prizes can start to snowball as an initiative's SBI balance grows.


I think the platform is great just wish I had more shares.
