Hello Nature Lovers !
I would like to cordially invite you to the first week of the Amazing Nature Contest for vloggers! There were already so many excellent entries regarding how amazing nature can be in the the regular contest and it grew bigger and bigger over the time. Now I received my first inquiry about vlogs ^^ .. To be honest, I do not know much about video, but as promised I will try to response to all your critics and suggestions. For this first one I will stick close to the format of the regular contest, and if I figure out that you love it, we can adjust the format together :) .. To participate in #amazingnature vlogging, just create a post with your video that shows how amazing nature is for you personally. This can be anything from a beautiful film about a walk through botany, a visit to the zoo, or whatever comes to your mind when you think about nature.
What is the Purpose of the Contest ?
I am a huge lover of nature and really enjoy to take pictures of all the lovely things that surround me every day, no matter if those are plants, animals or landscapes. I found Steemit to be a brilliant place to find and watch nature pictures from all over the world. Now I that I got in touch with one nature vlogger here on steemit, I found that I enjoy this too ^^ There is such a diversity of great content out there, thanks to all of you, from different perspectives and out of various motivations. I would like to collect all those beautiful and amazing stories in a compilation, also I am not sure if this will be a weekly, monthly, or occasional one on the end, so that you can all benefit from the beauty that we are facing all the time, but so often are not able to appreciate in the modern times we are living in.
Contest Rules :
As this is a proper contest be so kind and follow those simple contest rules. They are the same as in the regular contest, only that you have to include at least one video ^^
- Use #amazingnature as FIRST TAG and topic of the post and CLEARLY MENTION that your post is an ENTRY for this contest. This assures that this contest can grow and reach out to as many nature lovers as possible.
- The video that you use in your post have to be your own. You can use the amazing nature banner if you like or create your own.
- Clearly STATE why this video is representing YOUR AMAZING NATURE. This is an essential part of this contest.
- Drop the LINK to your post IN THE COMMENTS below so all participants can find it easily and fully enjoy this weekly collection. It is also NECESSARY as I have to post one link to the Terminal on Friday for voting and also later for my own compiling purposes.
- Please submit only one post per contest. Of course you can do more, but I will stick to the first entry per Steemian.
Possible Topics :
As nature covers an incredible wide range there is really anything possible. Amazing Natures categories could be anything from the following topics:
- ... Surprise us ^^
Prizes to Win :
- 1st Place : 3 SBI
- 2nd Place : 2 SBI
- 3rd Place : 1 SBI
I am sure that this will not be the only vlogging special and hope that it becomes an own contest too. Therfore I am planning to present all participants of Amazing Nature in the entries section of the announcement posts that will be published for the next round, whenever it will be. For this very first one it will be the same as for regular contest, so roughly one week later on next Sunday (depending on my time schedule this may shift some time ^^). This way you will have a nice compilation of them all. Regarding the title picture I am not sure yet how to handle it as it's about videos, hehe. But I kind of also would like to create it from the entry of the contest winner.
How are the Winners choosen ?
The voting will be done by the community, the same way it happened for the regular contest the first time this weekend. For this purpose I will use the same chanel that the Steem Terminal was so kind to create in their Discord. Here I will post the announcement post (contests-and-such) on this Sunday together with all your entries (adalger-contest) on next Friday. Every member of the Terminal will be able to assign "voting emojies" under the entries for 24 hours and in the end those three with the most of them are the lucky winners ^^
Steem Terminal Discord Server:
If you want to vote for the entries, feel free to join us on the Steem Terminal Discord:
It is a great location for learning about Steem, Discord, and Steem-related communities, full of nice people that you may ask if you need assistance, with nearly everything ^^ It also host the Redfish Rally, a funny challenge for all those new here. You will find documents to assist you, a place to learn and practice, and find out about the many opportunities to connect with other Steemians. So why not joining us? You will not regret it ^^
HERE YOU WILL FIND THE WINNERS IN THE FUTURE ^^
As an example I would like to show to you the latest post from @ospro who was the one that initially asked for a vlogging format. It is about ant activities and some green leaves ^^
I thank all of you who so greatly supported the Amazing Nature Contest so far. I never expected that it would evolve like this, or that I would even handle vlogger, hehe ^^ .. Lets us see how this format will evolve. Together we can make it a place as great as the regular contest already is, thanks to you all :) .. Of course this new format is open for all kind of critics that can increase the quality of the contest and I am always happy about anyone who wants to join us on this little adventure. Let's see how this vlog contest will work out ^^
