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.

We would like to extend a massive thanks and show our appreciation to @curie and @randomwanderings for the support and will be working hard to improve and grow the contest in the coming months.


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?

If you have a friend that has never entered and you think that this contest would be ‘right up their alley,’ then bring them along! Get them to join in on our current topic and then mention you as their referrer in their entry post. Once the fees are in and their entry is confirmed, you will receive an SBI share at the end of the month. Easy peasy!

Rules for the referral:

  • As always, the main rule is one human, one entry. No alt accounts please.
  • The referred contestant needs to be entering the phctop3 for the very first time.

  • Maximum 1 referral per person, per month.

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

  • The table version can be found here

  • The basic version can be found here

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


Good Luck!

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

I love this, I really like to listen to music at all times, but when you travel, the music is more important than even the same luggage hahaha. I hope to see the tickets of my classmates and I will certainly enter again!

That's great news! Looking forward to your entry!

Road trip music is a must for me. Anytime we go anywhere we have a good 2-3 hours where this is no radio signal. Besides what keeps you awake at 3am when you just want to get home and your co-pilot had decided he needs to sleep.

I'm sensing another awesome @tryskele entry on the horizon... ;)

LOL I hope so. It does make it easier when it's fun topics.

At 3am on a road trip I need to summon what I call the "Bass Cannon" and blast some music out, crank up the bass and propel 😂

Looking forward to hearing your road trip tracks!

Music - again? Well, I shall have to put my thinking cap on! I was, though, immediately reminded of how 25+ years ago, I used to drive 800km once a month. For the weekend! Let's see...

Music is always a crowd pleaser! With having those awesome Curie prizes we wanted to make sure to pick another really universal topic to get plenty of great entries. No pressure...😜

What? No pressure? There are standards to maintain...🤭

Looking forward to reading another Fiona classic here 😉 no pressure but you have set your own standards now 😛

You love it 😀

Time to think this through, another nice topic @phctop3

Can't wait to hear your list! 😃

Late, stuck in a groove, whoops still added just for fun:

I don't know if I'm doing this right but this is my entry post, which I added to another post which sent me to this one for more info.
