Today’s featured contests

We have an ever growing list of recurring contests after the numbered list below. One of our members suggested we have a special section featuring some of the recurring contests each time. We agreed and here it is!

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.

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.

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 shares 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 shares. 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.

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 shares. 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.

Finish the Story Contest

This weekly contest is run by @f3nix. He recently launched 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 shares. 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.

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 shares.

Pirate Sunday

Come help tell the adventures of Captain K, a fictional character with a quite a history! To enter, read the current post and previous stories, then write your own version of what “piratey” things he gets up to next.

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.

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 shares from the ever growing prize pool!

What does today mean to you?

Here’s the description from the contest creator:

This is a weekly contests to giveaway SBI shares to the winner(s) - the best "one out of six" from "qualified #ccc entries"

The theme of your post-entry is to -

  • present a personal story,
  • illustrated with at least one relevant photograph taken by you, the contestant,
  • about the day or the days surrounding it.

It is set to be a weekly contest on Wednesdays, although, on some special occasions, it will be pre-announced due to a special day such as a holiday.
So, far, this contest has inspired some wonderful memories in these entries.

72 Hour Raffle

72 Hour Raffle

@elleok runs this raffle that lasts 72 hours from the time of posting. Always check his account to make sure you find the latest post.

Entering is easy. Just make a comment for one entry in the random draw. Upvoting and resteeming gets you two more entries. One winner is guaranteed an SBI share, and if many people enter there could be more! So spread the word.

SBI & GRC Contest

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 share 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 shares 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.

Instead of trying to be thoroughly comprehensive (and then end up not publishing) like we have before, we have only included the most recent contests (skipping duplicates). If we missed yours, feel free to share it in the comments for our readers to find, and to stop by our Discord server to post it in the contests channel.


If you want to get involved, or to increase the share of 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 share 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. We are not currently accept SBD for enrollments. Please allow up to 7 days for your enrollment to be processed.
