Welcome to one and only, the original Steemit Photo Challenge!
The now bi-monthly photography contest on Steemit, running since July 2016! The one year anniversary of the SPC is coming up soon, and we need to do something extra special.
The theme was
Animal Portrait II
Wowzerskates. That was a lot of images, you have no idea! I’m talking hundreds of entries, I don’t even know how many there were myself but I went through them all.
Here are my picks...
Have a look at my shortlist for this theme.
Submitted by @slayerkm
The new theme will be:
Abandoned buildings and places, burnt out cars, stuff like that.
Definition: in a very poor condition as a result of disuse and neglect.
"the cities were derelict and dying"
Take inspiration from the Desolation theme that we did a while ago.
I’m not saying it has to be in Black & White but it should be in Black & White. ;)
The deadline for entries for SPC42 is June 17th 0400 AM UTC. Winners will be announced on Wednesday June 21st.
Again, this is to make the SPC more self-sustaining in terms of payouts going towards the prizes.
If you have suggestions, leave some comments :)

Deadline for entry is 04:00AM UTC (which is midnight UTC-4) on the Wednesday morning
The Title should contain "SteemitPhotoChallenge Entry" along with the title of your work.
Let us know the medium used to produce the photograph, it may be more impressive based on what it is.
Basic processing is allowed. ‘Digital art’ won’t be considered.
Any medium or format is allowed — iphone, ipad, film, digital, point and shoot, drone, whatever. Once it takes a picture. Note that image quality will be considered.
- Multiple Entries can all go in one post, just put the details under the image.
- Any attempt to steal others' work is considered a serious infraction by the community, so don't do it. Please don't waste your and our time by posting some image from the net.
- Every effort will be made to ensure that we do not reward theft. All images will be reverse checked, if the image has been found on more than 2 “major” websites, it will be disqualified unless reasonable proof can be shown to prove ownership of the original. If there is any doubt whatsoever about the ownership of the photograph, I reserve the right to disqualify the image. It is in your interest to provide any proof necessary. I would appreciate any help from the community in finding plagiarism where I might have missed it.
- The photographs will be judged on how well they met the challenge, the quality of the image, the composition, lighting, exposure, creativity and the general aesthetics which means that yes, it is subjective.
By entering this competition you acknowledge that you own the rights to the photographs and allow for me to re-post the image should it receive a winner or honourable mention position.
