PHC Top 3 - Blog Header Image.png


Time to know what’s up! We are launching a new contest and you are going to want in! Listen up as things are going to get interesting.

This is a new monthly contest run by members of the @steemitbloggers (aka Power House Creatives) where we’ll be asking you what your top 3 choices are on a specific topic for a chance to win a percentage of a growing STEEM prize pool!


A Growing Prize Pool You Say?


To be eligible for the contest, we ask you to write a Steemit blog post with your top 3 selections AND 50% of the payout of the Steemit blog post is required to contribute to the prize pool.

Therefore, the more people that enter, the bigger the prize pool gets which means bigger prize payouts for the Top 3 places! Here's where it gets juicy! You can top up your entry fee as much as you wish; making greater prize payouts possible.

There will then be a dpoll to decide the most popular of the choices and you will score points based on the popularity of your choices. The 3 with the most points will receive a share of this growing prize pool! Bingo 😃

If you’re ready to get your feet wet, let’s dive in to this month’s topic!


The Topic For This Round Is…Comedy Movies


How To Enter This Spectacular Contest

1 - Create a blog post with your top 3 nominations along with your reasoning behind them. You must use the #phctop3 tag

2 - Put a link to your blog in the comments section of this blog.

3 - Set your post payout to 50/50. You keep the SP and then transfer the STEEM or SBD (whichever is paid out at the time) to @phctop3 with a link to your blog post entry in the transfer memo.

The deadline for submitting is the 9th April 2019


We have created a blog template which you can use to help get you started if you wanted. Click here for the Markup Template or here for the Non Markup Template to view it and copy & paste in to your steemit post editor.

How detailed you want to go is up to you but we know you can do better than “because I like it” 😉

Our Panel members may create their own post with their own top 3 but these will NOT be entered in to the contest. Instead they will be used to add to the prize pool for bigger prize payouts.

What Happens Next?

The Panel will first review all submissions for eligibility.

Following this, the Panel will then have a recorded voice chat and decide on their own top 10 picks from all submissions. This is for amusement purposes only and will not affect the results - you may agree or completely disagree with their picks!

Then all submissions will be put into a public dpoll with a recording of our chat to let the people of Steem vote on their favourite submissions.

Once this dpoll is complete, we’ll review the results and combine them with our scoring system before dishing out the prizes to the top 3!

The prizes get divided up by a combination of the final position (1st, 2nd and 3rd) and by the amount of entry fee given. 75% of the prize pool will be distributed to the top 3 places and the remaining 25% of the prize pool goes back to the Panel with the aim of growing the account.


Good Luck!

Alright! Let’s get this ocean in motion and get your ideas flowing as we excitingly wait for your entries!

Wishing you all the best of luck from all of us in the PHC Top 3 Panel

Hey @porters

Fantastic news, that you are entering. It should be a lot of fun. The comedy genre is so huge that we thought it would be a good one to start with. Loads of choice. Happy choosing and best of luck.

The PHC Top 3 Team

You've got over a week, so plenty of time to jump into the fray! :)

Should be interesting indeed, to see what people bring in from different parts of the world with all different tastes for comedy.


Great initiative guys.

@theycallmedan ... thanks for supporting the team, mate. If you ever want to become a PHC member ... I think you're in for the asking. :-)


Hey @quillfire

Thank you for taking a look at our little venture. I would love to see you enter. That would be very cool. As for @theycallmedan, he should definitely be an honorary member of the PHC, as standard. I would love it if he also entered his nominations! To see both of your choices would be intriguing to say the least.

Do it Quill and Dan! Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it! 😁



...he should definitely be an honorary member of the PHC

Honorary Member ... my ass. We'll make him write a poem a day for the first month. Whip that Whale Ass into shape.

I would love it if he also entered his nominations! To see both of your choices would be intriguing to say the least.

I'm your Huckleberry.

Alright Johnny Ringo, (@theycallmedan) ... time to dance with the Doc.


Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it!

Yes Foxy. Let's get that chant going! 😁

Thank you @quillfire ^_^

And thank you to @theycallmedan for such great support. We are all appreciative in this kind gesture.

This looks like fun! How did I miss this earlier? 😆

Gonna check it out!

Silver fox spotted! Thanks for putting your nominations together, just a couple more nominations to come in from the Panel this month! Submissions are coming in thick and fast!


I'm loving the nominations already! Exciting stuff, this might turn me into a couch potato 😬

Nicely done Gaz! Should give us a few things to talk about in the Panel discussion! Better get watching on some of those films haha!


I always love competitions, I would love to participate, but I don't know English, as long as it's through translation ...
Achievements to everyone involved ...

Hey @avina

It really doesn't matter. Please feel free to enter. We could help with translation, I'm certain. The PHC members are from all over the world. We only really need your movie choices and for you to do the best you can with the reasons. We would love to have you enter.


your support has made you happy, I am really inadequate, I can only write in Turkish ..

Hey @avina

If you select your 3 movies and add the names in English then you can enter. Please do not worry about the translation. It's about fun and prizes. 😁

We hope you enter.

The PHC Top 3 Team

Thank you 👍

I think what you wrote here is good. And just as @gaz has suggested, we can help! Absolutely. This is for fun and we want everyone to have a chance at it, good english or not good english. You count too ^_^
