**CLOSED No New Entries** Week 8 - Pay It Forward Curation Contest
The first 7 weeks has led to some amazing talent being featured on the PIF Contest. You willingness to take your personal time to curate others and help them earn more rewards is amazing!
Returning curators make sure to read below for the changes made to the rules this week!! After looking over the ideas that people came up with in my Help post I realized that my idea of making themed weeks wasn't going to work as I envisioned it. So here is what we came up with.
Week 8 Entry Post Format
For week 8 and future weeks you will need a curation style entry that includes 2 High Quality Original Content Blog Posts from Level 50 or Below Bloggers. This part hasn't changed except that you only need 2 of them.
- Curation Style Post of 2 Bloggers who are posting Quality Original Content
- Link to 1 recent blog post per featured blogger. 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 Must Be Rank 50 or Lower!
- You need to comment on this post with a link to your post, this is how I track everything!
Optional: Themed 3rd Featured Blogger
Starting this week there will be a 3rd optional blogger slot for you to feature. This is not required for an official entry and is purely optional if you want to add them.
This week the theme will allow you to Feature:
The Person Who Introduced You to Steemit or Who First Helped You Once on Steemit
This blogger can be Any Reputation Level! So it's just the opportunity for you to showcase someone who has made a difference to your steemit journey. A great way to say thank you to them and write a few nice words.
👉👉Clarification for Quality Required for valid Entry👈👈
We are looking for Quality Original Content. We want to see no less then 200 words of original written content. So a single photo is fine as long as there is 200 words with it.
To make it easy to estimate 200 words figure there needs to be 12 lines of content.
Posts from Parley and dmania are not acceptable.
|This week at least 6 winners are going to get a sponsorship for @steembasicincome!|

Contest Date Range

Need this time to revolve around my time so I can make changes to the posts at a set time for me, midnight.
