PhotoChain Challenge: 25th Edition Start - 24th Edition's Winners



Hello World!

This is the 25th 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 24th 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 24TH EDITION the transaction id.

And the Winner is...

The 24th Edition counted 11 (Eleven) valid participants...

The Key-Subjects were:
Dog and Relax

These are the 2 winners of the 24th Edition:

Winner 1



with a perfect representation of a dog in a relax time

The personal subject is Lying Down

Winner 2



with a photo where a nice dog and the sea remember us what relax is

The personal subject is Playa, Beach in English

I appreciated all of your entries, dears. I would like to award more than the usual 2 winners but the rules are the rules... ;)

Prize for the next edition: 2 HIVE SBI, as I explained in the Transfer on Hive Introductory Post



This is for EVERYONE on the Hive platform.


No required UPVOTE, RESTEEM, 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 criterium with which I'll choose them.

Are you Ready?


This week's edition is the:

25th Edition

The KEY-SUBJECTS for this week are:


A perfect couple for the summer period, but very very difficult for who lives far away from the beach. I know, but you can still try it with your creativity.


-- --- ---- STEPS ---- --- --


  • 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.


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.

  • 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)
    For example:
    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.


Now it's your turn.


Excellent choices for the winners! My nearest ocean is 4000+ miles away, so I may have to go looking for a lake!

Great idea Melinda. I'll wait to see your entry 😉

I live near the sea... and I picked a riverside photo from Munich! 😁

I guess you can find beaches everywhere! I found one from a trip to Mexico that will work, I think!

Nice! 😊

my nearest ocean is closer, but who said beach must be necessarily an ocean one, @melinda010100? I found one today. before that, I was considering making a custom beach for one toy on a pile of sand at my back yard :)

I know where to find lovely freshwater sandy beaches, but those interesting salt water creatures are often unfamiliar to me.

heh. same to me. but i love them with a crazy love since my childhood. books, films, -- the only options left to me, in this sense...

Here is my entry:
The photo was taken on the small dock of the beach in the town of Santa Cruz in the Galapagos Islands, it caught my attention that the sea lions get on anything on the pier and even in the boats to rest and sunbathe.



the words Lying Down and Beach, and I choose the word 'Dock' as my extra keyword

Well, I like It. Welcome in this week edition dear 🙂



We visited a beach today, I created a classic composition and took a photo. profit!

Ullalla, nice dear. Welcome in this week edition 🙂

Thank you for your participation. I enjoy and say you welcome another time 🙂

@davidesimoncini excuse me, I dont see me listed in the 'participants' section, so may I ask why did you consider my Relaxed Dog not a legit entry?

it was posted in the previous thread in time.



Yes, I considered. Excuse me, I just forgot to put your name on the list, I'm sorry ☹️

aha, ok then! :=)

Hello @davidesimoncini please must the photo contain people with beaches or anything lying on the beach?

Yes,the photo must contain both the beach and something that remeber the words lying down. People lying down are only an example of this 🙂

Thanks 😊. Anticipate my entry
