PhotoChain Challenge: 8th Edition Start - 7th Edition's Winners

in #photochain11 months ago


Hello World!

This is the 8th 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. There, I explain the functioning of the contest and how to participate.

In this post, I'll announce the 2 winners of the 7th Edition of the Contest. Within the next 48 hours, I'll reward both of them with a 1 SBI share as explained in the regulation and will post in the comment section of the 7TH EDITION the transaction id.

And the Winner is...

The 7th Edition counted 3 (three) valid participants.

The Key-Subjects were:
Green Moss and Trees

These are the 2 winners of the 6th Edition:

Winner 1


with her photo with the 2 key-subjects as main protagonists

The personal subject is Leaves

Winner 2


with a slightly dark conceptual image

The personal subject is Grave

I also had promised to reward the 2 winners with a Derangedcoin. Also this week, I liked the third image and I decided to award all the participants because I can still afford it since the number of participants has remained so low. I reward you with a DERANGEDcoin in one of your next posts.

Thank you EVERYONE for participating in this week's contest!
@bambuka @melinda010100 and @qwerrie



This is for EVERYONE on the steemit platform.

2 SBI PRIZE in the launch-stage.

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. 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:

8th Edition

The KEY-SUBJECTS for this week are:


This week the key-subjects couple seem simple; I expect breathtaking shots...ops, excuse me :P

This week, more prizes!

Number 1

Every Participant will receive 5000 GEEKs, thanks to @qwerrie that sent to me a great quantitative of this token. I have 63000 GEEKs available while stocks last.

Number 2

The 2 winners will receive each a bot comment from deranged.coin. Actually, if I call deranged.coin, you will receive 1 DERANGEDCOIN TOKEN. If the rules will remain the same, every winner will receive 1 DERANGED.

-- --- ---- 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 hour 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 in the comment section of this week's edition.



  • When I choose a winner, I check his/her profile. If the author is to the attention of @steemcleaners or/and @cheetah, I will not confer the title. If you are in the blacklist of these accounts, consult one of their FAQ Page.

  • The duration of the contest: 7 days, from the start announcement post to 3 hours before the Post Payout Time.

  • Editing is allowed.

  • 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.


I'm a bit confused if this challenge is still ongoing. But in case it is, here's my contribution...
Grave + leaves + mausoleum

well, yes, I am not sleeping so why not... used the image from the same photosession - cemetary, November, leaves all around. actually almost every photo I took, would fit this round guidelines. it was not challenging or creative for me :)
(sadly it was only three participants this time)..

I don't know if beautiful could be the right Word to describe it, anyway the sense Is that.
Unfortunately yes, also this time only 3 participants. We'll see the current week 🙂

This is a great contest! I resteemed and hope you get many more entries this round!

Thank you, I hope. This week there will be the Block, see you soon :)

Sent you 10,000 geek tokens to use in your contest.

Many thanks Melinda. I'll add it for the next editions

The coin doesn't have any value, but who knows what the future will bring!

Oh right :)

Melinda, thank you very much for your support with this contest!.. I look at it like a very very very fun challenge, and I wondering am I the only one? where is the crowd wishing to take part in this fun? I really have no idea... where are all the folks... no, really?...

I could suggest a change to Steem for the prize and stating in the title of the post 'Win Steem' . It can be switched back to sbi after there are more participants. The title may be confusing and appear to be a winners announcement post rather than a place to enter a contest. Make the rules clear and simple. I will donate a couple of Steem next week if @davidesimoncini wants to give that a try.

hmm.. we all love steem, thats true, but did SBI contest become so unpopular now?.. I have no experience of contests and steemian folks, cant say what works and what do not...

Posts with Sbi votes are being downvoted heavily by a group of accounts controlled by a whale that does not like sbi for some reason right now.

I saw this, I received some downvotes and I saied my opinion directly in a post of the downvoter. I don't know, I hope this situation Will evolve in a better something.
