CLOSED: Starting 2019 with a Bonus! Week 39 - Pay It Forward Curation Contest

in #payitforward4 years ago (edited)


Being this contest starts on New Years Day 2019 we had to go big! Thanks to @josephsavage the founder of @steembasicincome we will have our biggest Judges Choice prizes ever! 12 SBI shares per winner! This is a huge prize over the normal 1 SBI share that the winners get so everyone better step up their game a little this week!

I will personally add to that an SBI share to each qualified entry this week that doesn't win a Judge's Choice award. This means to start the year off everyone is a winner! Remember this is about featuring QUALITY POSTS...let's start the new year off right!

Looking forward to seeing your entries!

The Pay It Forward Curation Contest is all about increasing exposure for high quality posts and increase the level of engagement on steemit. You can take part by entering the contest or just helping visit the entries and their featured posts. Everyone chooses their level of involvement and we appreciate the efforts of everyone who helps promote quality content on Steemit.

Make sure to check back to this post often and scroll to the end to see a list of this week's curation entries!

How to Enter the Pay It Forward Curation Contest?

To enter the Curation Contest you will find 2 high quality blog posts written by reputation level 55 or lower steemians and then write a curation style blog post like this entry by @viking-ventures from week 16 which won a Judges Choice Award. The idea is to highlight both posts and why you thought they were high quality.

To be clear the Level 55 max is only for the bloggers who are featured, anyone may submit a curation entry.


  • Curation Style Post that highlights your 2 featured blog posts.
  • Link to the high quality blog posts in your curation post. Keep in mind that many will follow this link and upvote so pick a post that isn't close to payout!
  • Include a link to this contest in your entry post
  • The 2 bloggers you curate need to be rank 55 or below
  • You need to comment on this post with a link to your post, this is how we track everything!

👉👉Clarification for Quality Required for valid Entry👈👈
We are looking for Quality Original Content and that post spells out what that means. If you are new please read it.

No less then 200 words of original written content. So a single photo is fine as long as there is 200 words with it. 200 words is about 12 lines of content.

** Art posts that show at least 3 steps of progression will not need to have 200 words of content, but still attempt to explain their art. Please use some common sense here.

Posts from Parley and dmania are not acceptable.

This contest run from Now until Saturday 1/05/19 at 11:59pm CST (USA, Chicago).

Great prizes this week! Thanks for all you do @thedarkhorse! And thanks to all of the judges and sponsors! 👍
