CLOSED: Week 48 - Pay It Forward Curation Contest

in #payitforward2 years ago (edited)


Before we get into the rules and increased prize pool I need to ask everyone for some help this week. We are now only 4 weeks until our 1 year anniversary. Haven't worked out the details yet, but the prize pool for our anniversary will be much larger then normal. Really hoping that everyone can help drive more traffic to the next few weeks contests to help spread the word in advance of our anniversary. Resteem and tagging people you think might be interested will be a huge help!

Thank you for your help in spreading the word!

This week we will have 5 Random Winners who each get an SBI share instead of the normal 2. This means at least 9 entries will win a prize this week plus another 8 shares for featured bloggers. That is a total of 17 total SBI Shares this week!

The Pay It Forward Curation Contest is all about increasing exposure for undervalued 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.


  • 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 #13 - Lucky 13!

Glad to see you made it! Good chatting with you earlier. This is @thedarkhorse in case you didn't know.

Coolest # on the calendar. I’m beginning to think we should schedule a bar hopping night or something. 😉 Nice to see you again, thedarkhorse—nope! I had no idea you were the host when we were talking about this competition earlier. Don’t you love when things work out the way they’re supposed to?

Sure do😊

"We are one sponsor short as a sponsor had to leave his hometown to try and find work meaning he may not be able to get online for a while. We wish @el-nailul luck on his hunt for work!"

I will help with this @pifc / @thedarkhorse. All the best to you @el-nailul, in your search for work!

Okay, sounds good! 👍

Here's to another successful week, and thank you @roleerob for helping out!

Resteemed 😊

All entries and featured posts were supported. (13). Its been awhile since I have done this. One day at a time :)

I cannot express how happy I am to see so many new faces. Very glad to have you here.

This is not a mandatory by any means, I like to ask it of everyone. (I admit I don't always get to) Try to visit other participants. It's more exposure for everyone. You never know what friendships and greatness is out there unless you look.
