First Homestead Photography Contest

in homesteading •  8 months ago

Hello, everyone I have been thinking about this for some time now and wondered if it would work. There are a lot of different contests that require one to take photographs, but there have not been that many here in the homesteading/gardening community. Recently, there have been some great contests and giveaways and I think that if we can add some more it will help our community grow.

The idea is to offer a photography contest that will take different aspects or themes of homesteading, gardening, outdoors, etc. One does not have to be homesteading or gardening to enter, but most will try to incorporate some aspect of it. It will be a weeklong event and the winner will get 50% of the post payout and runner-up will get 25% of the post payout. After the post payout, I will look through all the entries and select our winners.

The requirements to enter are:

It has to be an original photo

Be related to the theme of the contest

Upvote this post (and not required, but a resteem would be appreciated)

My hopes are that we can get a big response and that this can become a continued weekly thing. So, for the first week, the theme will be Animals. This can be any animal that you currently have or would see around on a farm/homestead.

Here is an example:

I'll promo this contest tomorrow and drop in an entry! I thought about something similar a while back, but never ran with the idea. Great job getting this going!

·

That would be great and the more the merrier! I really just want to build the homesteading community and I thought that something like your contests might raise retention and create some discussions/bring awareness to other homesteaders. Thanks again!

·

I agree. Great idea, and I like it. Also, although I did a promo post that included an entry, please do not choose my photo for a winner. I am officially withdrawing my entry. ;-) Thanks!

Very cool, thanks for hosting this! I have been trying to screw up my nerve to get more active with the homesteaders here, this is very helpful for me!

You have your first entry @knowledge-seeker. This contest is right up my street and I was needing some creative help today!

Looking forward to seeing this contest run!

Nice post!

Here's my entry:

This is a very good picture! The one on the far right reminds me of a Jersey that we once had.She was probably the nicest animal that we have ever had. I always like it when photography brings back memories of the past. Great Job!

·
·

He actually is a Jersey, and thank you!

·
·
·

I never thought I would say this but...Thats one good looking cow right there!!

·
·
·
·

Yeah, lol

Thank you very much!

Awesome idea, I posted two pictures. First is a turkey with a chicken and the second is a German Shepherd for protecting the livestock.

Thank you for hosting this competition. I love an excuse for posting a good photo. Here is my entry, Hopi the Shetland pony.

Hopi is adorable!

·
·

Thank you!

Is there a tag you want us to use or just post in comments?

·

For this time around, you can put your entry in the comments below. For the next one, I will probably use a tag. Thanks

Just a thought, but perhaps you/we could use the tag homesteadingphotography or something similar. It doesn't seem to be in use and it would make it easy to find entries.

·

That is a great idea! I will have to use that for the next one. Thanks

Thank you for a fantastic and supportive idea for the homesteading community. Behind you all the way and I hope this gains momentum.

Great idea! Looking forward to participating. Resteemed.

Here is my entry! Maybe not an animal you would WANT to see on the homestead, but pretty cool to catch on camera anyways!

Thank you for setting up this contest and for chosing animals as the first category!!! Here is my entry for GOATS!!! Gotta love’m. Thanks again! 😊

GREAT IDEA!!!! my entry is here....🐷

I love this idea, now I just need a decent photo to enter.
Can it be a photo we've taken a while ago or does it have to be a photo taken that day/week? I just want to clarify so I'm not disqualified or something for submitting the wrong thing. :D Thanks in advance for helping me submit the right picture. :D

·

The more recent the better, but if it is a little while ago that is okay.

·
·

Okay, here is my entry, a picture of one of our puppy dogs, Tiny.
He's avidly watching to see if I'll spill any of the cooked hamburger meat I've just strained and am pouring back into the pan. :D

·
·
·

Isn't that always how it is. They want right under your feet when there is food involved. Good Job!

·
·
·
·

Yes, that is exactly how it is, always. Especially at my place because we've got the six puppy dogs. :D Instead of booby traps we've got puppy traps. :D Thank you so much. :D
God bless you. :D Have an awesome day! :D

Thank you @knowledge-seeker for this awesome contest... I don't have much at the moment but here is my entry https://steemit.com/homesteading/@senorcoconut/my-homestead-photography-contest-entry-animals#comments
This spring we move on raw land and will build our homestead!!!

Looks like we've got lots of great competition! And I can't wait to check out everyone else's photos! Here's my humble entry for this week - can't wait to play more!

Sounds like great fun! I look forward to all the entries & will be working my way through the ones already linked.

Looks like I'll be toting my camera with me a while longer, too. Sure makes driving my appointments route a lot more interesting. ;~D

Excellent homesteading ideas to get more happening for the bloggers! Thank you, here is my entry. Take care:)

I am new fairly new to Steemit, and I am wonder how exactly I would enter my picture in the form of a link?

·

Welcome to steemit! One way that you could do it is by creating a post for your picture and then copying the url from the post and paste it in the comments here. I hope this makes sense and if you have any other questions please let me know.

·
·

Thank you, I am pretty sure I got it now. :)

Here's my entry. Some tiny October hatched Bantams.

·

This was a good photo. These little guys don't look very old and I like how they are different colors. Good Job!

·
·
