Self-Portrait Photo Contest - 20th Week - Prizes Increased!

in contest •  9 months ago 

Dear Steemians,

By organizing this #contest I wanted to contribute to the further development & growth of the #Steemit community!

It's the 20th week of this #contest & I decided to raise & spread the prizes only for this round! So, in this round the 1st prize will be raised by 1 SBI & there will be honorable mentions who will get 0,1 STEEM each!

There was only 1 entry in the last week. The post with the results & explanations can be seen on the following link:


Be creative & make self-portraits not in that common way as the trendy "selfies" but in a high quality way partly describing yourself & your way of life. Every each of us has many different roles to play in life: worker, sportsman, soldier, writer, driver, lover, husband, father, wife, mother, artist, model, waitress, lawyer, dancer, actress, scientist, doctor, singer, musician, politician, manager, nurse, porn star, prostitute, gigolo, pimp... or some kind of an imaginary character - somebody who you would like to be... There is plenty of inspiration for the theme!

Nudes are also very appreciated & welcomed as well as the conceptual & art #photography.

#Photos can be full color, b&w & #monochrome tones.

How to apply for the #contest:

  1. Use a #self-portrait tag as one of your tags in the post.
  2. Clearly mention the #self-portrait photo contest in your post title or post body & tag me in your post - @careassaktart (As this will help to grow this contest). For example: "This is my entry for the #self-portrait photo contest by @careassaktart"
  3. Ad a short story / explanation / description to the photo.
  4. Your #self-portraits must be your original work as well as the text following! Stolen content will be immediately reported to @steemcleaners.
  5. Post a link to your entry in the comment below this post.
  6. Please write in English.

Deadline: Sunday, 15th of September 2019, 2:00 PM Central European Standard Time zone in Zagreb (GMT+1)

This is not a selfie #contest & selfies are not acceptable & will be refused & disqualified!

If you don't know the difference between a #self-portrait & a #selfie & consider to participate in my contest, I advise you to please read the following article:

Portraits of you shot by others are not self-portraits & will not be accepted either!


🥇 First place: 4 STEEM + 1 SBI

🥈 Second place: 2 STEEM

Honorable mention will receive 0,1 STEEM!


Me, My Ass & I


I caught myself naked on the field next to the river Mirna close to the castle Pietropeloze, near Buzet, Istria, Croatia. In that time my colleague Marko, an extraordinary gifted musician & multimedia artist, just got out from a nuthouse so he needed some social interaction. We were invited to play at the free climbing festival in Buzet & there we spent some free time in Bračana beach. It is a field next to a small creek called Bračana. There I got a crazy idea to make few naked self-portraits on long exposure. I can't remember anymore what was the theory behind the visuals so this time I'll let you - the viewer - to say what do you see! & please, write your thoughts in comments!
The photo was made with Canon 60D & Canon 10-22 mm lens on a tripod with a timer set on 10 s & long exposed.

All the prizes I’m sharing from my own pocket for all the 20 rounds so far.

It would be very nice to have a #sponsor who would #delegate some SP so that this #contest can develop further more & that the prizes can be bigger...

By #delegating SP to me for the purpose of this #contest, you become a #sponsor / supporter & you will be mentioned in every next #self-portrait connected post of mine!

I'm looking forward to see your entries!

No Upvote, No Resteem, No Follow required. Of course, all the help and support you give is greatly appreciated and absolutely voluntary.

It was a cold day and I was remembering a wonderful summer walk and hiking to the amazingly beautiful Sever Rila Lakes in Bulgaria so I made two additional shots in the studio and opened Photoshop to create that self-lifting scene. ENJOY :D :P

This is not a self-portrait. & even if it was, it is a very low quality shot. Not acceptable.
