What’s up everyone!
Welcome back to another month of our exciting contest, where we ask you, the Steem Community, “What’s Your Top 3?”
Another great month is in the books after you all shared the most epic board games with us last round! Thank you as always for the amazing and very entertaining entries. The prize pool last month was yet again over the double digit SBD mark, so along with the Curie contribution we gave away over $10 SBD and 40 Steem to the winners! How’s that for some sweet rewards? This round we’re hitting the highway and seeing where the ride and the music takes us...But first…
Once again, @curie and @randomwanderings have chosen the Top 3 contest for their support and so graciously allotted us 80 Steem to distribute between July and August to boost the rewards. This is on top of the original 50 Steem they were so awesome to contribute for May and June! You rock @curie!. The top 3 positions will win their share of the prize pool as normal but on top of that, we will add their generous steem prize. Here’s how it will work:
- 1st place 15 STEEM,
- 2nd 10 STEEM,
- 3rd 7 STEEM,
- 4th 5 STEEM and,
- 5th 3 STEEM.
The Topic For This Round Is…Road Trip Songs
The long days, the warmer months and an awesome buzz in the air can only mean one thing... It’s holiday season! With so many of us jet setting off to far away places or just heading down to the beach with the family, one thing’s for sure - you’re going to need a music playlist for that awesome road trip! Perhaps it’s tunes full of nostalgia from summer trips when you were a kid or the latest summer anthem out this year. Maybe our friends in the Southern Hemisphere experiencing winter right now would enjoy thinking of those warmer days while they are waiting for summer to come back around! So, Steem community, what are your top 3 road trip songs that you just HAVE to hear to get you in the mood for your holidays?

Creating Your Post
You are welcome to create your own post but for ease of use and your convenience we have created two different templates. The first one; a more complex version, contains some coding creating a nice table for you to edit. The second template; for those of you not familiar with coding,is a simpler version without the code
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.
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 the 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.
Got a few questions, like why the entry fee or how to score points in the dpoll? Check out the FAQ link we have made for you.FAQ Link
Alright! Let’s get this ocean in motion and get your ideas flowing as we excitedly wait for your entries!
Wishing you all the best of luck from all of us in the PHC Top 3 Panel
