Hey #photochaincommunity! Big thanks to everyone who participated in the second Photochain Photography Contest and took the time to go out and take some amazing snaps, especially those who put in extra effort to find the perfect picture according to the weekly theme. Those I enjoyed the most as they showed me your unique perspective and creative power.
Congratulations to all the winners and honorable mentions. You made it really hard to decide who should win. If you see your entry in the post I hope you have a ERC20 compatible wallet, if not, set it up (watch the tutorial under how to enter) and contact me on discord with your wallet address.
Some of you didn't add a watermark to your images or forgot to add a tag and those culdn't be taken in consideration as they were not following all the rules. So please, read carefully how to enter and rules before posting an entry.
In short, it's a marketplace for stock photography that will, by using the power of blockchain technology allow photographers to earn 95% of the revenue generated by their work while still offering a cheaper price for the buyers. Its current counterparts take up to 75% of the profits and tackle its users with entry barriers and inequality. Like many others in the blockchain space, Photochain aims to change that by shifting the power from the greedy corporations and giving it back to the driving force behind their success; their users. Sounds too good to be true? It's not. That's the beauty of cutting down costs through decentralization and a community based governance.
Find out more about the DApp in the article I wrote about it but if you really want to go in detail I suggest you read the whitepaper.

Photochain Photography Contest
Is on a talent hunt, searching for Steemit's best photographers while giving everyone a chance to earn. You don't need to be a professional photographer but some level of quality must be visible in your work as each and every contribution will be rewarded with Photochain's tokens: Photons (1PHT = 0.12 USD). For that we have a community reward bot in development that will go live next week but will also count in this weeks entries. The bot will comment on every post in the #photochaincommunity tag and after manual screening of the posts, searching for possible abusers, it will distribute Photons to our community members Ethereum wallets.
Each week you will have a theme that should be present in your pictures. This is optional as I know that some of you might not have the resources/inspiration/opportunity to follow the given theme for the week. Why would I follow it then? Because first place is reserved for entries that follow the weekly theme. Second, third and honorable mentions don't need to go along the theme to win but it's an advantage if they do.

How to enter
Either with a dedicated post titled Photochain Photography Contest or with any other post containing your images that you are proud of
Include the Photochain logo or watermark somewhere in your images.
NOTE: As Photons are ERC20 tokens, you will need an ERC20 compatible wallet to collect the rewards. My suggestion is Metamask as it's simple and easy to use. If you have any troubles setting it up watch this short tutorial.
Here, again you have the full creative freedom to present this theme in whatever way you feel is the best. You could portrait the feeling of her power with pictures of incoming or ongoing thunderstorms, lightning strikes, severe drought, hailstorms or any other natural disaster. You can show her brighter side with stunning landscapes or animals enjoying their natural habitats. These are just a couple of ideas off the top of my head but you can go as far as you want with it. Just be creative and have fun.
- Only use your own images
- Take in consideration that the pictures must be of certain quality. Not just by resolution, as composition, color palette, style and overall feel of the image will be taken in consideration
- Add #photochaincommunity tag if you want to be targeted by the bot and receive Photons for each entry and #ppc so that I can find your posts
- All entries must contain the Photochain logo or watermark somewhere in the images
- Unlimited number of entries (except when you reach lvl 10 in the bot leveling system that yields 100 Photons per entry, then there is a cap at 3 entries per day)
- Members of the #photochaincommunity should strive to engage and interact with each other as much as possible (this will help build the community aspect of the contest and will allow you to unlock the multiplier to earn more Photons per each entry)
To get a feel of the quality I'm hoping you can achieve check out some of the images featured in the demo.photochain.io
Prizes#1st place - 500$
#2nd place- 250$
#3rd place - 100$
4x honorable mention - 20$
Monthly superstar - 2500$
All prizes will be paid out in Photochain's tokens Photons that can later on be used to buy art within the DApp or sell for cash when the token is made exchangable. Tokens will be sent after the tokens are minted at the end of the ICO.
Each community member that has made at least one entry that week can cast one vote for who he/she thinks should win. To vote just place a comment in this form: "My entry for this week's contest is link to your entry and I vote for link to the entry you vote for"
One winner will be chosen by the community and the rest by myself and the Photochain team. Winners and the new contest theme will be announced a day after this post pays out.
