CONTEST! My 2018: Achievements and Failures | 100 STEEM in Prizes

in #blocktradescontest4 years ago (edited)

This is a @blocktrades sponsored contest, if you like what they are doing, vote for them as Witness here

Last year about this same date, we launched the first series of The @blocktrades December contests and they were a success with more than 1,000 Steemians joining. Now, it´s contest season Steemians, we will host one contest per week until we reach 2019 with several hundreds of Steem in Prizes.

How was your year? Was it full of experiences as the travel nomads here on Steem? Did you tried tens of different dishes and recipees like the Steemian foodies around here? Did you accomplish everything you wanted to? How about that long overdue holiday you took? That date you wanted to have with the beautiful neighbour maybe? Did you retire from work? Did you go to Steemfest?

Disclaimer: I´m copy/pasting most of last year´s contest rules and requirements since we did such a good job last year (Insert sad self high five here). If you want to check out last year´s contest and entries,

This week´s subject is "achievements and failures".

I know, such negativity including the word failures in the title, right? Well, as I said in a previous post, life is a rollercoaster and in order to be thankful for the good things, sadly there must be bad things. There is nothing wrong in accepting some years are tougher than others, perhaps writing about it can help us cope with it.

So, starting right now, you can write about this subject and you have until next thursday (Dec, 13th) at 23:59 PST to submit your entry. Right after we announce the winners, we will announce the next subject for the contest.

A few requirements for submiting your entry

  • The title must be "My 2018: Achievements and Failures - If you want to add something extra do it here"

Example: My 2018: Achievements and Failures - How I became a cosplayer by getting out of my comfort zone.

  • For your entry you can make a video, you can write a text as a first person POV, you can do a photo album with descriptions, WHATEVER you think of, you can use it to participate. Just remember, no plagiarism, please.

  • Use the tag "blocktradescontest" and "my2018" so the judges can browse the entries easierly.

  • Please do not post a Link to your entry in the comment section, the judges will not check out the comments, they will browse the tag.

  • The entry must be in english because most of the judges speak english, sorry for not making it multilanguage but that would make it very hard for the judges to assess the winners.

  • Resteem this post. I know, I ask for resteem a lot lately but, these kind of contests are aimed to reach the most Steemians we can, so everyone who wants to join finds out about it.

I will be voting on every entry with a different percentage depending on how much I like it and, in order to avoid being biased, there will be a set of 3-5 judges that I´ll announce soon and they´ll decide the posts deserving the precious Steem, let´s hope the market price behaves better next week :D

The prize will be divided as follows:

  • 1st place: 30 Steem
  • 2nd place: 20 Steem
  • 3rd place: 10 Steem

Depending on the number of entries, the remaining Steem will be divided among honorary mentions.

So, how was your year, Steemian? Are you ready to start recaping?

The funds for the prizes will come directly from the earnings of this post, so if you like this idea, give it a little vote!

Remember this is a @blocktrades sponsored contest, if you like what they are doing, vote for them as Witness here

Jep Jep. Definitly taking part on it! Thanks for that. Since this is my first year on steemit it was a lot what i learned and achieved :)

Another great challenge.... Thanks for it! I'll be part of it ;-)

Que bien, me parece excelente, lastima que solo pueda ser en ingles :) exito para todos los participantes, saludos

Contests are a great way to add excitement, interest and value for Steemit...especially if the 'rules' are 'simple' like this writing challenge offered by @anomadsoul and @blocktrades ; so, I welcome it.

All I have to do now, is remember to write something, and get it in on time to qualify for a piece of the pie...cause us 'old' folk have a tendency to forget things pretty quickly :>(

Maybe if I re-steem the post, it will help refresh my memory...??? Yeah...that's what I'm gonna do; re-steem.

Best of luck to all.

If it is anything like the last contest, I don't think you are going to be hurting for entries! I was pretty shocked when I read that around 250 people had submitted entries in the last one. That was many more than I had been expecting. I think it is great that you guys are doing these contests. It is a great thing that will help a lot of people.

My second year in participating this contest ! Will write up mine soon :))

This is the best way to keep people uplifted even though in today's bear market conditions when people start leaving and look lethargic, contests like this once again ignite their passion, well-done @anomadsoul.
