I was trying to come up with an idea for this week's theme and I went into @neoxian's server and started talking to the members of Tribe City of Neoxian and asked for some idea's of what they would like for a theme. Flowers is one of the themes that people seemed to like.
The good thing about flowers is that a lot of people enjoy taking pictures of them and they are accessible pretty much everywhere. There are some really cool flowers from all over the world and I am pretty excited to see the pictures that everyone comes up with.
I am looking forward to seeing what kind of images you all come up with. If you make a post about your entry, make sure to leave the post link in the comment section along with your picture. Also, make sure to use the
creativecoin tag with your post.
How is the Deranged Photography Contest set up?
The contest is broken up into three different tiers. Each will have a different payout for the winners based on what tier you enter into. Here is a breakdown of the rewards based on the tiers:
|1st||50 CCC||40 CCC||30 CCC|
|2nd||30 CCC||25 CCC||20 CCC|
|3rd||20 CCC||15 CCC||10 CCC|
Each contest will be open for submissions for 6 days after the post is made and then closes at 0100 UTC (1800 MST) on the 6th day.
This will give me and any guest judges time to judge the submissions and create the post announcing the winners.
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 #creativecoin tag.
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 wish 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 the sponsors
This week, thanks to @rehan12, there will be an additional 500 NEOXAG added to the prize pool that will be distributed among the winners.
Thank you to everyone that will be participating. The contest wouldn't be around without your great submissions!
