With the release of Steem Summit's Call for Exhibit Panelists as the official start of pre-summit activities, this post is the first of the four calls for submissions for Steem Summit's Exhibit. The exhibit will highlight the best of Cebuanos' passions and talents under those four categories. This post serves as a contest to choose the works to be showcased in the summit proper.

If you are a Cebuano, someone who has been living in Cebu and its vicinity, or someone who scheduled his/her April 22, 2018 to be part of Steem Summit, then you are invited to submit your entry in Art Category. Who knows? The panelists might choose your artwork to be showcased in the summit.

Expression of Gratitude

The organizers of Steem Summit would like to express their deepest gratitude to @donkeypong for his generosity in sponsoring the rewards of all Steem Summit contests, including the four calls for submissions under performing arts. To the Cebu community, let's be grateful to @donkeypong for being not just a supporter, but also a great mentor to @steemph.cebu's core leaders, @themanualbot and @jassennessaj. Please refer to the screenshot below or go over to @steemsummit's wallet for @donkeypong's donation.


Submission Guidelines

Like all contests, there should be guidelines to be followed. While the guidelines are not requisites to assure your winnings, these would help the panelists in choosing the winners. Following the guidelines will also make your entries official.

  • Resteem this post. This will serve as exposure of the contest to all Cebuanos who want to join. The organizers don't want to hear stories that many want to join, but the information didn't reach them.
  • Make an artwork of your choice. May it be calligraphy, sketches, hyper-realistic drawings, paintings, and sculpture, except photography. There will be a separate contest for photography. Be creative. Do not limit yourself to those mentioned above. Depending on the financial status, quality and quantity of the entries, and the agreement of the organizers, panelists, and core leaders, there might be more winners than stipulated.
  • Make a post describing your artwork. This will serve as your entry in Steemit. Be creative I'm presenting your artwork. Impress the panelists.
  • Use #steemsummit as the main tag of your post. This will make your post easier to find. This will also create a noise about @steemsummit.
  • Use #artsubmissions as your second tag. This will separate your entry from other entries under the other categories. The three other categories are poetry, travel posts, and photography.
  • Comment below the URL of your post. This will lessen the work of the panelists. This will also allow everyone to see your artwork.
  • Preserve your artwork. Your artwork might be showcased in the exhibit so, it should be preserved as much as possible before the summit proper.

Submission Criteria

This will serve as the basis for the panelists in choosing the winners and rank the entries based on the scores given to the individual entries.

  • Brilliance - 40%
  • Story - 30%
  • Technicalities - 20%
  • Visual Impact - 10%

It is up to the panelists' interpretation of the criteria above that will determine the winners. The organizers have no influence in choosing the winners. Also, to avoid bias and influence of choice, the panelists don't know who are the two other panelists. The rankings are based on their opinion only.


There are multiple rewards in this contests so everyone is urged to give their best.

  • Post Payouts - This is inherent to every posts in Steemit depending on the upvotes. You get noticed by @curie if your post is really interesting.
  • SBD Rewards - This is courtesy of @donkeypong. All SBD rewards are from his donation.

Champion - 5 SBD

First Runner Up - 3 SBD

Second Runner Up - 2 SBD

  • Exhibit - To be showcased in the exhibit is an exposure and a prestige to the winners. Their work will be marvelled at the exhibit.

The announcement of winners will be done on the next day; Wednesday, March 21, 2018. Heads up panelists! You are only given one day to rank the entries.

Gosh..i wanna join

Thank you to @donkeypong for the support but I want to ask if It is 1 entry per participant? Can we re-post what we have posted before for our entry to this contest?


Only one entry per account @daisydelta. Also, the entry should be new and exclusive for Steem Summit. This is to avoid @cheetah's attention. Good luck!

So visual arts ra ni noh? No music, film, and other performance arts?


Yes, @xaydtrips. Performance arts will be in a separate contest.

Awww... too bad I am in Metro Manila...

To go to Cebu in April or not? Hmmm...

Keri ba yung sasali ako pero pag di ako nanalo, di ako pupunta s Cebu? hahaha, wish lang pwede sumali.


That would be a fair bargain @artgirl. Just submit an entry. The panelists might find your work amazing.


Thanks for extending it. :)

Btw, aside from this being extended, would all the winning artwork on display be also for sale or no? @steemsummit

Can I use previous works for a chance to get exhibited? If it wins, should it be printed like poster size and hung in a frame?

Do we retain ownership of the winning artworks?


Is digital art considered? Like sketching from an adobe Photoshop/Illustrator etc?


Yes, @chuuuckie. Any form of art. Modern or contemporary. It's up to the panelists to choose.

how to join ?
