200 SBD 7 World's Continents Photo Challenge - 2018 guidelines

in photography •  2 years ago 

Hello fellow Steemians,

This post se dedicated exclusively to updated rules and conditions of my photo contest known as the 200 SBD 7 World's Continents Photo Challenge.

I decided to host this photo contest to enable Steemians from all over the world to present their photography skills and promote the beauty of their countries and places they have visited.

The 200 SBD 7 World's Continents Photo Challenge is held every day, covering each continent on one day of the week, according to the following schedule:

• Sunday - Asia
• Monday - Australia + New Zealand
• Tuesday – Antarctica + the world’s oceans
• Wednesday - Africa
• Thursday - Europe
• Friday - North America
• Saturday - South America

The rules for this photo challenge are simple. All you have to do to participate in the 200 SBD 7 World's Continents Photo Challenge is to:

- submit your personal photo that you took during your travels in the continent of the day
- add a short description of your photo (between 30 to 50 words)

The photos are to be submitted in the comment section below the post and please remember that only your own images will be accepted. Plagiarism will not be tolerated and those who will try to submit stolen images will be flagged by me.

I will always upvote the best 10 entries of the day and select one absolute winner of the day. I will write a post the next day featuring the winning picture and the photo description to bring the winning Steemian some publicity. At the same time, I will also visit the winner´s personal blog and upvote his most recent post.

The winner of the daily challenge will then automatically qualify for the weekly 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge that runs from Sunday to Saturday with winner being announced on Monday. The winner will be selected based on your votes from my post.

While resteeming and upvoting of the 200 SBD 7 World's Continents Photo Challenge posts is not mandatory for the competitors, it will be highly appreciated as it helps the challenge to grow and develop, which will subsequently contribute to the growth of your own accounts here on Steemit.

Good news for all contributors – increase in payouts!

As the Steemit platform has been constantly growing and to attract new talented contributors, we decided to increase the payouts!

The winner with the highest dollar amount of upvotes in the 7-day period will now receive 20 SBD from me which will be done after 14 days of the first post as that will be the difference in days between first and last post being closed.

The winner of the weekly 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge will then automatically qualify for the monthly 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge where his entry will be competing for a chance to win 40 SBD from me based on the highest number of dollar upvotes from other Steemians. The winners of the weekly 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge will compete against each other.

The absolute winner of the 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge will then receive 100 SBD from me. The absolute winner will be selected from the monthly winners of the entire year once again based on the total dollar value of upvotes received from other Steemians.

Note: I reserve the right to make some changes on the go to make this contest smooth and successful. Any entries that will use non-personal photos will be disqualified immediately without the chance of re-entering again. Please help me to upvote and resteem this post to get it to masses so that only the best image will take the winning reward amounting approximately 200 SBD in total (including upvotes on their winning announcements).

Please feel free to check out some of my other recent posts.

Great contest I will be gladly continue to share to newcomers I resteem via @welcoming - Should be about an hour since the last recommendation! ;)

Thanks ever so much! Some of the guys that are joining are just out of this world! You are doing an amazing job!

Thank you so much for this wonderful daily contest, Tomas! It's really incredible how much it has grown in size and quality. I do have one question/clarification. If I've submitted a photo that didn't win the daily contest, can I still submit it again at another point? I haven't done that yet, but there are a few I'd like to try with again. And honestly, I need a spreadsheet because I'm starting to lose track of what I've entered!

Hi Matt, I know, the quality of the pics is increasing day by day. To be honest lets keep it just one pic since the amount of entries really is growing and I shouldnt be upvoting the same pictures twice. I am preparing something exciting for you guys in months to come which should help all of you talents out there. Have a great day. Toms

Fair enough, that makes total sense. I look forward to whatever you have planned. You know you'll always have my full support. Thanks for all you do Tomas!

Thank you @czechglobalhosts for this exciting contest. I shall surely participate on Sunday.

I hope to win one week. I thought my dancing house had a chance. :(

I am sure you will! That pic really was an amazing one!

Thank you, it really does mean a lot that you liked it so much.

I'm sure lots of priceless photos will come out from there. Good luck to all participants.

The challenge keep on evolving so fast and it is starting to attract some amazing talents from our Steemit community. Keep following if you like to see some amazing photography. Have a great day. Tomas

Beautiful breathtaking scenery of Black Forest Germany. I visited Western Europe last month from Dec 2nd to Dec 11 2017. I love the cold weather over here. At that time when I was there the temperature range from 0 degree to 3degree. I love the snow. And this is my first time landing on a snow country.This is my first time experiencing snow. Is so nice to walk on the snow. I am glad because able to see snow but at the same time able to feel, touch and taste snow. I am so excited seeing the whole area of Black Forest covered with snow. From far look like cake icing. Really amazing and awesome.

Photography contest to @czechglobalhosts .


Latin America, North Coast Venezuela

In a very early pass by the sea of the Venezuelan coasts we see this beautiful sunrise, populated by some clouds, we just stay silent and breathe deeply while we capture the photo

Asian Sunday - An evening stroll along the riverside in Phnom Penh Cambodia gave us an incredible view of colours in the sky.


I was afforded the opportunity to go to Aus with my University 3 years ago, this is still my favourite building to photograph - Trish

On the same trip around Aus and NZ, Hobbiton is amazing - Trish

It seems to be so aglomerated in the first photo but I appreciate how clever things are put together in the blank page. It all ties up together and it is made perfect conection with the content. Keep on steeming.

Self -Portrait on my recent trip to Szczecin, Poland on train tracks. The winter is really beautiful there , snow adds such a magical atmosphere to the place but boyy... is it cold. The temperatures can reach to up to -30, and although this was an absolutely freezing day, I took my cape (like Batman) and stood there strong and fierce with a timer on a camera to capture somewhat an artistic shot... risking freezing to death or potentially being hit by a train... ahh the things we do for photos ;) Hope you enjoy it :) Photograph for contest to @czechglobalhosts .

what a good stimulus for the community! I congratulate you, I will participate

Upvoted! Please check my posts, too!

Hi @czechglobalhosts I'm participating today for the first time. Thanks for the contest. Is there a cap of submissions per person in addition to per post? Thanks

Thanks for making those changes and I'm happy to be part of this contest:)

I'm not clear on how we enter the particular continent challenge - what do I put in my tags? Thanks.


Is there a specific main tag I should use? Thank you for hosting this contest, I love seeing everyone's travel experiences :)

Here is my entry for the 7 World's Continents Photo Challenge - Sunday Asia:


Peaceful lake near Nalanda, in Sri Lanka

What's the deadline for entry? What timezone?

Cauky @czechglobalhosts. Promin za mou otazku, ale chci se zeptat jak se muzu zucastnit pondelniho contestu o asii? Snazil jsem to rozlustit, ale jaksi mi to nedochazi..:D dekuji za kratkou odpoved az si najdes minutku.

I have a question. If I enter a photo for the New Zealand/Australia competition do I have to submit it on Monday or can I submit it any day before Monday. Also how do I post my entry below this post. Sorry but I’m new and still learning

I appreciate your efforts! Thank you!

I have a question too: If I'm living in Europe, then I can post an entry only on Thursday, right?

Photographers have more chance to make money from their work on #steemit than giving them to any photo agency as the price for anything but hot celebrity news shots or Kim Jung Un in his bath eating Swiss cheese you can't even give away

A great initiative. More power to you

good work dear keep it up I follow you and hope you also follow me thanks

"I live in Spain, but this time I am lucky to show a photo in Glasgow (Scotland). My brother lives there with his wife and baby. And I had the opportunity to visit them for his birthday. This photo is my favorite because I love nature."

I made a post too Click here

Amazing,very creative one.I like it
