CLOSED: Week 43 - Pay It Forward Curation Contest

in #payitforward2 years ago (edited)


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.

Entry #6

Just wanted to stop by briefly this morning and let the @pifc community know I am not gone.

I will be active again in the future, as soon enough, I'll be back to my "real life." But I planned my "Road to Recovery" trip for a long time and will make the most of it, while I can. Now, in week two ...

Back "out on the road" I go, as I am sitting here typing in my motel room, rather than be out on the beautiful Pacific Ocean coast on the Monterey Peninsula! 👋

Here's another early entry from me, thanks to finding one early, then one last minute last evening...

I guess I'll be #5 this week, lol.

Entry we just need a #4

I see him now...

Hola querido @roleerob! Disfruta de tu viaje de recuperación regresa pronto te esperamos. Un beso y un abrazo.

Hope you are having a good time on your trip! It's great that you are able to take this time to enjoy life a little before settling back into real life.

I will have a look at it... was @viking-ventures the last one who wrote? My Internet connection is very slow so I can hardly load a post but I noticed one of the Steemians she recommended is already not active since 5 months.

That is an old post which was a Judges Choice winner. It's a good example of quality posts and nicely formatted so haven't really had a good reason to change it.

Ok I understand, but if there is something recently written people might be willing to follow the recommended writers as well. Which I intended to do

Posted using Partiko Android

You can always look at the weekly Winner Announcement Post which lists the 4 judges choice winners. I also include links to all of the featured bloggers of the Judges Choice picks on that post. Let me know if that is what you are looking for.

The winner post for Week 42 will come out either tonight or early tomorrow. It's always the day after the new week starts.

People come and go all the time, so it's hard to keep an example up-to-date without changing it every week. The example was all that was necessary in this case.

If you click through any of the entries you'll find good bloggers to follow. That's one of the beauties of this contest.

Thank you for saying that so much better then I did.
