This is the 46th Edition of the PhotoChain challenge. The PhotoChain Challenge is a blockchain-like photography contest. If you would like to know more about, read the PhotoChain Challenge INTRODUCTION Post on HIVE. There, I explain the functioning of the contest and how to participate.
In this post, I'll announce the 2 winners of the 45th Edition of the Contest. Within the next 48 hours, I'll reward both of them with 1 HIVE SBI - as explained in the rules - and will post in the comment section of the 45th EDITION the confirmation of transactions.
And the Winner is...
The 45th Edition counted 7 (Seven) valid participants...
The two Key-Subjects were:
Dog and Pillows
These are the 2 Winners of the 45th Edition:
with a happy technological dog on a pillow and surrounded by blankets
The personal subject is Blanket
with a foreground of two couple of beautiful giant dog pillows
The personal subject is Brown
This time I added another prize, 1 HIVE also for @tripode, the first participant in the Photochain's History that I saw joining with a nice GIF. He ( or she? :) ) found a "BUG" in my guidelines and I want to give him a little prize to thank for the participation and the help.
PhotoChain is born as a Photography Contest and doesn't accept video: Gif is a variant of a video and we don't accept him. BUT!!! We accept only photo because the key-subjects taken remain in the photo for all the life of the photo itself. But the GIF shared by @tripode is a perfect representation of a visual element where the key-subjects remain in the foreground for all the duration, from the start to the end of the animation: so, I decided to accept this variant in the future editions of Photochain. Thank you @tripode for your help, you will receive 1 HIVE Token when I'll award the other 2 participants.
I also invite you in the new edition with all the Steem and Hive participants @qwerrie @melinda010100 @barbara-orenya @nelinoeva @isabelpena @iamraincrystal @bambuka @mauriciozoch @bucipuci @gingbabida @centenojesus @luigi-the-gnome @eii @dronegraphica @lifeskills-tv @whatisnew @redheadpei @wakeupkitty @libertycrypto27 @paradigm42 @daysiselena @calisay @viking-ventures @dkkarolien @tijntje @wongbraling @sonius94 @iampolite @pavelsku @sgbonus @lorennys @dreamingirwin @geyzee @jlgc @zhanavic69 @steemflow @trudeehunter @elizacheng @maddie30 @rafaelgreen @gems.and.cookies @pommom @pardinus @ripebanana @bold-n-italics @olgavita @tripode @zoricatech @friendlymoose @ainie.kashif @amandaj
Prize for the next edition: 2 HIVE SBI, as I explained in the Transfer on Hive Introductory Post
This is a WEEKLY PHOTOGRAPHY Contest.
This is for EVERYONE on the Hive platform.
2 HIVE SBI PRIZE
No required UPVOTE, REHIVE, FOLLOW or BID to participate.
I explained in the Introduction Post that everyone can participate by submitting his/her own photo in the comment section. The photo must contain the 2 Key-Subjects that will be communicated in each post of the New Edition and another key-subject at your choice (contained in the photo). I also explained there how the key-subject will change and the criteria with which I'll choose them.
Are you Ready?
This week's edition is the:
The KEY-SUBJECTS for this week are:
BLANKET and BROWN
Not so difficult couple this time, but only if you have a brown blanket in your home :P We'll see what will you be able to do...
-- --- ---- STEPS ---- --- --
1) SUBMIT IN THE COMMENT SECTION:
- The photo that contains the two Key-Subjects;
- A Comment with the two Key-Subjects + another subject of your choice contained in the photo. (If you posted the image in your blog, you can post the link to that page, but you must add your photo anyway in the comment)
2) ONLY IF YOU WANT: mention another person you think would like this challenge.
3) NO FOLLOW, UPVOTE, RESTEEM REQUIRED.
4) WAIT FOR THE NEXT WEEK: time limit fixed to 3 hours before the Post Payout
I'll write a post for the weekly edition start and I'll announce the Winners of the Previous Week Edition. There I'll communicate the 2 Key-Subjects.
If you have any doubt, follow the practical example in the Introduction Post. Furthermore, I add a practical example in the comment section of the Zero Edition Post and you can consult the previous edition to know more about how can the comments be.
One entry each participant
The duration of the contest: 7 days, from the start announcement post to 3 hours before the Post Payout Time.
GIFs are allowed only 1) if the duration is less or equal to 10 seconds; and 2) if the key-subjects remain in the foreground for the whole duration of the GIF.
Editing is allowed, but not creations such as graphic design: this is a PHOTOGRAPHY contest.
Every Color Cover is allowed, including Black and White.
Every Theme is allowed: no censorship except for extremely explicit content. The nsfw contents are allowed but I will not utilize the nsfw tag for the PhotoChain Post: so, if I choose a nsfw photo as a winner, I will not insert it as an image in the official post (only as a mention or a link to the original post)
IMPORTANT: I invited the participants to use fairly large categories as subjects so as not to sabotage participation. You haven't to use proper names (of cities, places, mountains, species, etc)
Don't utilize the subject snow bear but only animals; naturally I will give more importance to the photo of an animal that is not often photographed compared to a simple domestic cat.
REMEMBER! The more general the category used as a subject, the greater the participation in the competition, the greater the prizes in the future.
Finally, I'll advance with the prizes awarding 2 days approx after the finish of the weekly challenge. I'll write the transaction ID in the winners' announcements post.
TIME TO JOIN!
Now it's your turn.
