Blocktrades + Open Mic: Steem Fest Ticket + Accomodation Giveaway!

in #steemfest2 years ago (edited)

The Steem Fest season is on. We are officially three months away from the biggest Steem Blockchain event of the year.

Some might think it is too early to start with these Ticket Giveaway contests but @blocktrades will be giving away more than one ticket for this event so we decided to start as soon as possible.

Besides, people need to plan ahead and what better way to help them do so than by starting the contest season this early?.

This contest, in particular, the @blocktrades + @openmic ticket giveaway contest is mainly for artists and members of the @openmic community but this doesn´t mean only members of the community can join. This is a contest open for everybody and you don't have to be a musicians to win a ticket to SteemFest and the accomodation in the @blocktrades sponsored apartment in Krakow.

I'll say it again, you don't have to be a music artist to win this ticket.

If you don´t know what Steem Fest is, check out everything about it in @roelandp´s official announcement here, you can also have a look at the offical web page.

General info

A SteemFest ticket is one of the most amazing prizes someone from the Steemit community can win and @blocktrades and @openmic will do their best to make it as inclusive as possible and also striving to reward quality and commitment towards the Steemit and the Open mic community.

There will be two steps for this contest. The first step is right here, the second one will be announced once the first step is completed and only the winners of the first step will be able to join in the second step.

The Contest

The first step is very simple.

  • Record yourself on your cell phone

  • Tell us about yourself. The real person behind the Steemit username. After all, if you win, we´ll be meeting in person in less than 3 months.

  • Your story on Steemit. When did you join, why, how etc. How do you engage with the community, what do you do on a daily basis on Steemit or any of the other DApps.

  • Why do you want to attend SteemFest and what can you add to the community by attending.

  • And the most important part... This is an @openmic contest, so get on the mic and tell us the direction you would like to see Steemit move towards. The idea is to record yourself telling your fellow Steemians what you want Steem to become and how you think you can help that reality come true.

  • Once you made your recording, upload it to DTube, YouTube, or Vimeo then post it on your blog. Add any other pics or storyline you would like to include on your blog.

We'll pick the best responses and announce the winner.

This is SO exciting and on behalf of the Open Mic community would like to thank @anomadsoul and @blocktrades for their generous support!

After talking with the judges and @anomadsoul, we think it may be better to open this contest up to the larger Steem community so that even people who are not musicians could participate and have a chance to win a ticket. What do you guys think? Would love to hear your thoughts.

I am already in Poland so participating feels a little like cheating :-)

Actually I am pretty bad with a mic and that's probably the real reason for my my evasive talk. Nevertheless I'll be keeping an eye out for some great entries that I know would be made.

I also might be going to Krakow in September and do some reviews for places that would be good to stay at for the steemfest. If you guys need any help in that area - give me a shout !

I love this so much! There are so many amazingly talented musicians on this platform and I was really hoping they would be well represented this year at steemfest. Combining the opportunity with the openmic community is just a perfect fit. Cant wait to see the entries! Awesome idea.

We decided to open this to all of the community, not just musicians. You can read the changes to this post for details.

@anomadsoul, Wow, this is awesome initiative by the Blocktrades for sure and in my opinion whoever is attending the SteemFest for sure will going to get an effective opportunity and what best surprise one want.

And yes, Music is an great addition in any event and it's great that in this contest musicians will going to get an effective chance and let's hope that some amazing musicians will going to make the SteemFest more musical.

And literally speaking Steemit Economy holds so many different contests and all these contests gives one or more opportunities and these opportunities are really productive and also these Contest Economy increase the Engagement Levels.

So let's hope that this SteemFest will going to be one of the best and let's hope that after the SteemFest we can hear about the more amazing projects and initiatives for the Steem Economy.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

that is a really nice initiative by not only giving chance to musicians but to everyone

Greatttttttttttttttttttt! hahaha

I'll be on the lookout for the next one. Perhaps a utopian-io analysis post? :P :P :P

I hope thre would be drawing contest soon...😊

Thanks guys! Let's hope more people see this and join!

Lovely idea buddy - as a music community driver for electronic music and DJ I am not an #openmic guy I fear but might consider a contribution. If I win I will donate to someone wanting to go there! I personally will not be able to go I am afraid.

That is really cool.

This is great from you man to donate the ticket if you win! Lets hope some of your musician followers join the contest.

That is terrible news, I was looking forward to meet in person, I hope there is still a chance you can make it!

Resteemed - no chance to attend Steemfest but you are always welcome in Germany - hit the car with @twinner or @alexvan and let us meet then in Munich

Excellent., Open opportunities @anomadsoul with such a good publication. congratulations for your work

I really appreciate the intention behind this contest, to help relief people of their cash overload while attending SF 3 in krakow, Poland. It is really nice. I just hope the category includes poet and other artistry skills soon enough...

Kudos @anomadsoul

There will be something related to wiring skills, that's for sure!

Would a past steemfest attendant qualify or is emphasis placed more on first timers?

Thank you for sharing this wonderful information with others. Good luck to you and Love.

Спасибо, что поделились этой замечательной информацией с другими. Удачи Вам и Любви.

I follow you, I hope for your reciprocity

Very nice content

This is so nice, @anomadsoul. I don't understand very well what the price is exactly about as I can barely infer that it's related to a musical-tripping experience. Anyways it motivates me to participate in the way as I, in a sense, want to finally grab in my hands that feeling of being part of... I know I am, and something tells me it should be an even bigger like sense of integrating. I actually am going to start to write my post and gon record my video this weekend when I get confortable and so ready. Thanks again for giving so much of you, and I'll contact you to make the translation to spanish if anyone has already done it.

Check out the links I provided in the post and you'll know what the steem fest is about!
