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! This list is updated on a regular basis to help make it easy for you to visit the entries and help support the great content that has been curated.


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.


Rules:

  • 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.

Status:

Votes on Entry Comments will be given in the later part of the week. We tend to run low on VP during the first few days of the Curation Contest as each entry means 4 total upvotes, 2 for the featured bloggers, 1 for the entry, and 1 for the entry comment. Then we tend to have excess VP later in the week so this will help us manage our VP and give you larger votes.

I've just visited and supported both of them. Thanks for sharing!

Here is my submission - https://steemit.com/payitforward/@chekohler/week-44-pay-it-forward-curation-entry

If no one plans to take first place this week, I guess I will

Entry #1

Very cool entries! :-D

edited to remove them both as both might not have been original sorry for the mistake.

I didn't see an issue with the other one, but if you caught something I didn't good job. Sorry it happened to you. Think it's happened to every single person at least once. Sometimes it's really hard to catch and the whole thing of cheetah upvoting gets confusing until you realize how the bot works.

I've just visited both entries! Thanks for participating!

Un saludo cordial a la comunidad cariños y besos a los organizadores, jueces, patrocinadores, concursantes y visitantes de este concurso.

This week was very slow... wasn't it?

Very slow! Think this is the lowest number of entries ever going back to day 1. Hopefully we will see things pick up next week.

Thank you very much to those of you that participated and help support the features. Every little bit is very much appreciated.
