Pay It Forward Curation Contest - Week 1
With the feedback that happened from the Paying It Forward post it took the top 3 entries and narrowed it down to the winner. So the contest will be based around a submission by @satanclaus123
As steembasicincome is all about sharing I think your contest should be about people featuring someone else, everyone picks one steemer and talks about why they think this person should deserve a bigger audience or more attention. You could call the contest: Who Inspires You
|For winning @satanclaus123 has gotten a sponsorship to @steembasicincome program (just paid for it). Plus I will give a full 100% upvote on your next post, please tag me in it. That means lifetime votes on future posts from steembasicincome!|
I am putting a little twist on the idea, or lets call it flushing it out a little. As I was reading the entries the ideas were so diverse that I realized making a contest that highlighted one type of skill set would greatly limited who had a chance to enter and win.
|Wanted to try and benefit as many members as possible! Feel that featuring the works of others who aren't getting the rewards you feel they deserve that we can Pay It Forward to many smaller steemians and help get them some deserved votes.|
The Contest Overview
This contest will run for 7 days (and change) and will end on Tues April 10th at midnight Central Standard Time US.
There will be 2 Winners each week and it's based on how long you have been on Steemit. Below in "How to Win" will explain this further.
This contest is truly here to help gain exposure for posts that deserve more of the reward pool then they are currently getting. Lets help reward bloggers who clearly put effort into their posts, but just aren't seeing the rewards that you think are deserved.
|Your Entry will be a single Curation Post that needs to highlight 3 other bloggers and link to at least 1 of their posts. This is your opportunity to share why we should visit these bloggers and what drew your attention to them.|
Each Blogger Featured must be the same or smaller rank then you. That is I am currently level 54 so I could feature anyone that is level 54 or below.
Of the 3 bloggers you feature at least 1 of them must be someone you DO NOT currently follow. That is you need to go out and find new content from bloggers you don't know. Feel free to add them to your follow list once you find one you like, just mention that you started following them after reading their post and this can be verified via the blockchain.
You must Upvoted and Comment on all 3 of the posts you feature in your curation entry.
Any type of content is acceptable to be curated. If you love Photo's then curate Photo posts, if you love Drawings curate drawing...just curate what you love and explain to us why you selected these bloggers for your list. This is an opportunity to share with others what YOU feel is QUALITY content and WHY.
You will be writing 1 post in which you talk about the 3 bloggers and one of their most recent posts. Below is what is required to be in the post.
Write a review of the blogger and 1 of their most recent posts, link to the post
Explain why this blogger was chosen and a summary of their post
Make sure you have upvoted and commented on the post you link to for each of these bloggers
Your post should also link to this post showing you are part of this weeks contest.
Requirements for a valid entry
Honestly I'm going to keep this simple, as long as you use the tag #payitforward and comment below with a link to your entry you are entered. Your comment will allow us to assign you a entry number. Make sure to follow the rules above and you will be entered.
What would be great is if you could help us spread the word and help me continue this past the 3 weeks I am committing to. How can you help? Simple give an upvote to this post, resteem this post, and let others know about the contest.
Optional, but I could use your Help!
Help me spread the word about this contest and help me make this contest last longer then 3 weeks.
To help Spread the Word Please:
- Tag 3-5 people you know at the end of your post
- Check the #payitforward tag each day and actually look at those who are featured and give them an upvote. Instead of voting on posts with huge rewards already please help out some of the small members who are putting in a serious effort here and need your vote to encourage them to keep going.
- Resteem This Post!
To help Keep this Contest Going for longer then 3 weeks please upvote this post. If rewards allow for it I will continue this contest for more then 3 weeks. I am not a big fish here and this contest is being paid for with my personal money, there are no sponsors. If anyone wants to contribute with a sponsorship or to be a Judge please contact me on Discord, same name as here and I'm # 6765
How to Win
First things first, @lynncoyle1 is the second Judge this week. She is a firm believer in helping smaller members and belongs to groups like @asapers who feature smaller members posts who aren't being seen. Take a look at todays post by asapers and it will help you some ideas on how you could structure your entry.
There are 2 winners each week. 1 person that has been here for less then 60 days and 1 person who has been here for 61+ days will be chosen each week. I will look based on how many days you have been active starting Today April 3rd CST US to decide which category you fall in.
All those who comment below are given an entry number. From there all Valid Entries will be added split into their over/under 60 days groups and then a random number generator will be used to select the winner.
|Each week for at least 3 weeks 2 winners are going to get a sponsorship for @steembasicincome which means a lifetime of votes on future posts from @steembasicincome. I will also autovote 1x per day for 14 days at 50% power.|
*** Fair Warning: If your content is low quality I will let you know my issues with it, you can either choose to fix this or I will pull the autovote part of the prize. Sorry not voting on spam or stolen content
Next week I will post the winners of this week's contest on Wednesday April 11th CST US.
Next Week's Contest will start with a post on Tuesday April 10th CST US around the same time as this post. It will also run 7 days and change.
