WINNER! | The @blocktrades + @openmic Steem Fest ticket giveaway!

in steemfest •  last year 

Picking the top 5 winners from Open Mic's large pool of talent each week is no easy task. With so much talent to choose from it gets harder each week.

Even more difficult was picking the winner of the Open Mic + Blocktrades Steemfest Ticket Giveaway.

Steemfest is the biggest gathering of Steemians of the year held somewhere in the world each November and this year it's in Krakow, Poland. You can read more about this years event at SteemFest³ - Kraków, Poland: 7/8/9/10/11 November (+ Hotel Packages now available).

This year @openmic has partnered with @blocktrades to give a ticket to the week-long event including accommodations to one lucky winner. The contest consisted of two parts and was narrowed down to 10 finalists in part two. You can watch their videos at @Blocktrades + @Openmic: Steem Fest Giveaway - PART 2.

The finalists were:

998 Comments!

In that post we asked each person to ask their followers and supporters to chime in on the comments explaining why they think each person should win the ticket to Steemfest this year and the post received 998 comments! *Talk about engaging the community!^

Each one of those finalists have crazy support from the Steemit community and we felt proud of all of them after pouring through each and every comment. Their supporters speak volumes on how each one has influenced the Steem blockchain and helped their respective communities thrive and flourish. You really should read those comments to get a feel for what real community engagement on Steemit is and how each one of the finalists have that part of blogging down to a fine art.

They all deserve a ticket to Steemfest for sure and much more. I'm proud of each one of you and wish we could gift all 10 with a ticket but alas, only one was chosen to win the ticket to Steemfest.

And The Winner Is... @coruscate

That is so cool. You sure have the support of a lot of people on this platform. I read so many heartfelt comments people wrote for you. Hope to see you in Poland and Thailand soon.

Congratulations @coruscate! Must have been a tough decision to pick someone, but I can't think of a more worthy "Steem Ambassador" to be going to SteemFest! Solid gold awesomeness!

I got notified by Gina that I have been mentioned in a post. I rushed here hoping to see my name as the winner but unfortunately for me I saw an amazing young lady @coruscate. She did well and I hope she enjoys her visit to SF3. Congratulations dear.

@luzcypher, there is also a steem event in Nigeria called Steemit In Nigeria. This time it is the second one. You can read here

The second post @anomadsoul made asking for the communities' help on choosing the winner. Was that not used. If it was then I guess something is wrong. It is there on the blockchain who had most support. I can't question your judgement though. It is your contest.

Congratulations to the winner

Thanks for your involvement and for caring. Yes it was used and yes we asked the community to help but the number of comments for each finalist was not the only factor determining who won. It is not a popularity contest. That was just one consideration.

I get it now

Contests are not easily decided. One person must win. Thanks for speaking your mind though.
