Week 36 - Pay It Forward Curation Contest

in payitforward •  11 months ago  (edited)


This week we have a special bonus thanks to @dkid14 and @contestkings. We will be giving 1 SBI share per qualified entry. This means everyone is winning an SBI share!!!

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.

Note: we are very excited to say @lynncoyle1 is back as a judge this week!

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 12/15/18 at 11:59pm CST (USA, Chicago).

@ferrate you don't post links to on of your random posts for this contest. Please take a look at the rules and submit a proper entry. Please edit your comment and delete the link you posted.

Very nice candidates! Well done!

Entry #5

Welcome back.

Thats so Nice of you, great to be back !

Entry #6

Nice entry!

Entry #13

Hello there! Here's my entry for this week:

My entry to the "Pay It Forward Curation Contest - Week 36"


I'd like to invite you to participate in my Art Curation Initiative #5

Entry #3

It's still not too late. Awesome!
So here is the curation-style post I have posted to enter this contest: https://steemit.com/payitforward/@stortebeker/look-what-i-found-three-great-travel-posts I hope you like it!

Entry #15

The 200 word rule is mainly there to avoid single photo type posts that have little value. A post like your 3rd one with multiple photos which are quality we are a little more flexible about. Nothing is an exact science with this as we try to work with entrants to make sure if someone really feels something is quality we want to reward it.

As such this post was upvoted just as the others from your entry. Hope the what I was explaining makes sense and if not please ask questions.

So glad to see your entry!

Hahaha, I'm glad to be in. :-)

¡Gracias a Dios! ya tengo internet en casa, un abrazo para todos.

Entry #7

Gracias @pifc, un abrazo.

Entry #9

Nice picks. Thanks!

Awesome entries! but the link inside your post is linking to the previous week...

Hahah shit Ive forgotten :D I was writing it yesterday and new pifc wasn't even released yet :D And I was like: "You can't forget to replace it tomorrow" :D Well..I should know myself better :D Ofcourse I will forget :D

Edit: I just replaced it and it's funny that I've actually put there the link from last week in which I haven't even taken part :D I've probably opened @pifc account and found that the #35 is closed and #36 not released yet...soo I just copied the closed one :D could leave there the #34 which I was editing and would make no difference haha :D It seems i was way too tired while writing this haha:D

Ah, ah! I almost did the same. :-P

Well, my VP is gone for the day. I'll return tomorrow or a bit later to check out some more entries.

Entry #14

Entry #12

I'm In.. I'm Here... though I need to find the right time to do this while completing the daily quest for 10 Accs onsteemmonsters. here is my entry this week
anyone, thanks in advanace for your support for the featured bloggers, I'll be around soon!

Glad you took the time to enter. Don't get too addicted to that card game. It's a gateway for Poker, they say! Uahahahhahaha!

don't worry... as long as I can't see the $$ on the cards, and it is all about fighting and order the right line up.. I can stand it. do you know that the value of 11 months posting and comment on steemit is nothing to the value of the cards I have after a month playing with it with some free decks? that's crazy!!

Entry #8

Thank you.. at least still on the top ten.. hahaha

Sweet, finaly got my sumbission in first. Lucky enough to stumble upon 2 solid posts fairly quickly today. Here is my entry - https://steemit.com/payitforward/@chekohler/week-36-pay-it-forward-curation-entry

Second is an improvement on last week yes lol so i am getting better, but I still want to be first just for 1 week

Here is my entry for this week!


Hmmm... @lynncoyle1... sounds familiar... perhaps someone I met on a different platform?

EDIT: Damnit! I only just noticed Curie got in for one of them before me... @#%$#!#

Hmmmm @bengy ... sounds familiar too; somewhat of a shite disturber I think :) haha

Entry #10

Once and a while that will happen with Curie. Obviously try to avoid it, but you are good for this week.

Thanks... it's weird, it's like Curie is looking for the same things that we are!

You haven't realised that, after looking at the rewards? Ahahahha! 😂

I'd like to ask you to participate in my Art Curation Initiative #5

Posted using Steeve, an AI-powered Steem interface

To be honest, I've stopped looking at the rewards... reward envy is a nasty thing to have....

Whoa. I'm honored to have my post included! Thank you!

Glad to be back :) Looking forward to getting back in the swing of this too!

Glad to see you back and getting back to it!

Thanks @porters; I really do love this contest!

Genial este es el camino al éxito!!!

BTW to everyone, if you have some spare VP, go show some love to @booster916 and @phortun. They both always upvote both of my selected posts and they're not even part of the PIFC "league". They just help cuz they're nice Steemians! :)

I give my best. I mean good posts deserve upvotes. It's not easy to find them and getting upvotes is not easy, even if the post is good.

If I like it, I upvote it :D


Great initiative, I'm glad to help out!

thank you for your support.

wow! very nice initiative... let me find some good authors! I am on it!
upvoted and resteemed! wish more people will join this program!

Looking forward to your entry.
