200 SBD 7 World's Continents Photo Challenge - 2018 guidelines – 22/01 update

in travel •  2 years ago 

Hello fellow Steemians,

This post se dedicated exclusively to updated rules and conditions of my photo contest known as the 200 SBD 7 World's Continents Photo Challenge.

The rules and conditions of the photo contest remain the same as they were before with ONE EXCEPTION:

DUE TO AN INCREASING NUMBER OF SUBMISSIONS, ONLY THE BEST 20 PHOTOS OF THE DAY WILL GET MY UPVOTE. 10 WINNING PHOTOS WILL GET A BIGGER UPVOTE, 10 RUNNERS-UP PHOTOS WILL GET A SMALLER UPVOTE. FROM THE 10 WINNING ENTRIES, I WILL CHOOSE THE ABSOLUTE WINNER OF THE DAY, JUST LIKE I DID BEFORE.

I decided to host this photo contest to enable Steemians from all over the world to present their photography skills and promote the beauty of their countries and places they have visited.

The 200 SBD 7 World's Continents Photo Challenge is held every day, covering each continent on one day of the week, according to the following schedule:

• Sunday - Asia
• Monday - Australia + New Zealand
• Tuesday – Antarctica + the world’s oceans
• Wednesday - Africa
• Thursday - Europe
• Friday - North America
• Saturday - South America

The rules for this photo challenge are simple. All you have to do to participate in the 200 SBD 7 World's Continents Photo Challenge is to:

  • submit your personal photo that you took during your travels in the continent of the day
  • add a short description of your photo (between 30 to 50 words)

The photos are to be submitted in the comment section below the post and please remember that only your own images will be accepted. Plagiarism will not be tolerated and those who will try to submit stolen images will be flagged by me.

I will always upvote the best 20 entries of the day and select one absolute winner of the day. I will write a post the next day featuring the winning picture and the photo description to bring the winning Steemian some publicity. At the same time, I will also visit the winner´s personal blog and upvote his most recent post. The absolute winner will be chosen from the best 10 entries of the day that will get a bigger upvote from me. I will also upvote 10 runners-up photos, with a smaller uvpote. The remaining entries will not be uvpoted by me at all. I had to resort to this measure as the numbers of submissions have been constantly growing, sometimes exceeding 50 entries a day and I simply could not upvote them all anymore.

The winner of the daily challenge will then automatically qualify for the weekly 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge that runs from Sunday to Saturday with winner being announced on Monday. The winner will be selected based on your votes from my post.

While resteeming and upvoting of the 200 SBD 7 World's Continents Photo Challenge posts is not mandatory for the competitors, it will be highly appreciated as it helps the challenge to grow and develop, which will subsequently contribute to the growth of your own accounts here on Steemit.

Good news for all contributors – increase in payouts!

As the Steemit platform has been constantly growing and to attract new talented contributors, we decided to increase the payouts!

The winner with the highest dollar amount of upvotes in the 7-day period will now receive 20 SBD from me which will be done after 14 days of the first post as that will be the difference in days between first and last post being closed.

The winner of the weekly 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge will then automatically qualify for the monthly 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge where his entry will be competing for a chance to win 40 SBD from me based on the highest number of dollar upvotes from other Steemians. The winners of the weekly 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge will compete against each other.

The absolute winner of the 7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge will then receive 100 SBD from me. The absolute winner will be selected from the monthly winners of the entire year once again based on the total dollar value of upvotes received from other Steemians.

Note: I reserve the right to make some changes on the go to make this contest smooth and successful. Any entries that will use non-personal photos will be disqualified immediately without the chance of re-entering again. Please help me to upvote and resteem this post to get it to masses so that only the best image will take the winning reward amounting approximately 200 SBD in total (including upvotes on their winning announcements).

excellent post sir & good photography. relay good sir

Saturday: South America , Uyuni, Bolivia, The largest salt flat in the world.
A dreamy white salt flat, I cannot differentiate the sky and the land! It is wonderful to sink myself in between the dreamy white salt flat to wash away the dust and sorrow in my body.
Then, I find myself being incredibly joyful. I have lost my way home here.

Is this correct way to take part? Please and thank you.
@czechglobalhosts

What a fantastic initiative. I have some ace photos from South America that I would like to enter, I just have one question around timezones. I am in Melbourne, Australia (GMT+10) To ensure an entry is submitted on time, for your timezone, would a submission the day before it due be penalised ?

Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. 2010. Every time I look at this picture and remember that moment, I think: did he manage to make the coveted photos? @czechglobalhosts #7WorldsContinentsPhotoChallenge

I took this photo of a friend on top of the Roraima Tepuy on "La Gran Sabana", at the very south of Venezuelan almost in the Brazilian border. We made a three days long trekking up, just to spend another three days on top of the "mother of all the waters", that's the meaning of Roraima Tepuy in the locals dialect "Pemón" / Nikon Coolpix P520

Hi there,

Let's enjoy an amazing moment of sunrise that I took in my hometown - Dong Chau beach, Thai Binh, Vietnam. At the first light, a lot of oyster watch towers look so fabulous in golden!

This is one of my favorite places for photography...
