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.

The new theme will be:

Derelict

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 :)
