IMPORTANT UPDATE NUMBER 2 for people who have participated in my 'FINLAND' -themed contest earlier!
Edit. I'm bad at math; didn't realize that half will be SBD and half will be STEEM for the payout, fixed it.
I'm changing the participant payouts because I USED UPVOTE BOTS ( @minnowbooster: 7.8 SBD and @booster: 7 SBD ). So, if the post's AUTHOR reward is 26$ half will be in SBD ie. 13, and the rest in STEEM. All the STEEM goes to top 3 entrants and 25% of SBD to resteemers.
I would've included the value of the two upvote bots in the prizepool if this post would've reached more whale upvotes, like I really anticipated it to do with the visibility aid from the bots, thus, the reason I invested in them: to reach a BIG audience (probably the only time I'll ever do this again; it was a special occasion which I wanted to do big).
I should've thought about the possibility of this contest not collecting 100$ dollars and make the rules accordingly from the beginning. But this was a whim of a moment so I didn't consider it throughoughly.
If I ever make another contest I will make sure to take such things into an account from the biginning.
But IF we still reach something like 100$ I will definitely increase the shares that participants get! But it seems highly unlikely for the payouts usually don't increase much after the first two days.
Sorry for the potential confusion, I hope you understand, leave a comment if you have questions or disagreements. Everyone will still get rewarded for helping and participating!
This update is also in the original contest post but I posted it separately here so that everybody will see it; A heads up update so that there's no confusion after the contest is over.
In case you have missed it:
I'm hosting a contest for the celebration of Finland's 100th Anniversary. You can participate with any original work (art, poetry, stories etc.) that has a theme of 'Finland' in it. Go check that out if you haven't already. Guaranteed SBD for resteemers and prizes for best entry's!
It's still open until 12th of December approx. 8PM. when the seven day post payout period ends.
