Wildlife shots are some of my favorite shots to get. Mainly because you get to go get away from people when you are taking this types of pictures and you get to be in nature. You don't have to go on a safari in Africa or go to the forests in the Amazon to get cool wildlife shots either. You can go out to a wooded area and get some shots of the birds, or go to a farm and get some shots of the livestock there. What makes a good picture is your framing and how creative you are with everything, not necessarily the subject matter. I have seen some pretty amazing pictures of goats or sheep that are far more interesting than pictures of lions. So go out and be creative with your camera. You will be surprised with what you can do.

How is the Deranged Photography Contest set up?


The contest is broken up into three different tiers. Each will have a different rewards for the winners based on what tier you enter into. Here is a breakdown of the rewards based on the tiers:

1st100% Upvote80% Upvote60% Upvote
2nd80% Upvote60% Upvote40% Upvote
3rd60% Upvote40% Upvote30% Upvote

Each contest will be open for submissions for 6 days and close on the 7th day so that winners can be picked and the new post can be made.

What are the themes?

  • Monday - Macro
  • Tuesday - Landscapes
  • Wednesday - Wildlife
  • Thursday - Portraits
  • Friday - Sports
  • Saturday - Black and White
  • Sunday - Street photography

How to enter


When you enter a photo in the competition, you will state what tier you want to be judged in and locked in for the month at that level.

For example if you enter a photo, you drop the photo in the comment section, state what level of photographer you are, and then give a description of the photograph.

That's pretty much it, drop a photo in the comment section of this post and state your tier. If you want to make a separate post for your entry as well, that is fine, but for your entry to be valid, your photo and tier must be in here in the comment section of this post. If you do make a separate post, be sure to use the #photography and #creativecoin tags.

Additional Notes


  • Only one submission per contest. Extra submissions will be ignored.

  • You can switch your tier ONE time per month, but only if you are moving up into a higher tier, for example if you are currently in the amateur tier, but you think that you have a photograph that you want to enter in the professional tier, you can state that you are changing your tier to professional. You will then be locked into the new tier for the remainder of the month. You are not able to move down to a lower tier, like going from amateur to the beginner tier.

  • If you do not state which tier you want to be judged in for the month, I will leave a comment to remind you to do so, but if you don't respond, you will be assigned to a tier and locked in for that month.

  • Plagiarism will not be tolerated in any form. All submissions must be your own work. I will investigate every entry and if you are caught plagiarizing, not only will you be blacklisted from competing from any future contests, but you will be reported to @steemcleaners as well. It is not worth it to try and cheat, especially with the 3 tier set up where everyone has an equal shot of winning.

Thank you to everyone that will be participating. The contest wouldn't be around without your great submissions!

One of my favourite Themes and I absolutely love the winner photos, especially @dboontje

I found this little tree frog on one of our trips through Australia.

Tier: Amateur

I'm absolutely a beginner here!

This little owl had cataract so can't be released into the wild and lives at the rehabilitation center in Stara Zagora, Bulgaria. I volunteered there for 3 days and had great opportunities to take some photos.

The goats are fond of the fruits produced by the Argan tree and as equilibrists they climb to eat them.
