OCD Community Boost Contest S2 #1: Highlighting Architecture & Design

in OCD2 years ago (edited)
Authored by @ybanezkim26

And we're back!

We promised that OCD Community Boost Contests will be back because of the overwhelming response of the first round. We started that round on February to increase the number of subscribers and engagement of the communities that are under the incubation program. It was a success, but we had to stop it for a while to redirect our energies to other initiatives. This comeback has been brewing for a while. So, buckle up and ready your entries!

OCD has been at the forefront of supporting different niche communities in Hive. Under the Community Incubation Program, OCD has been helping community leaders and moderators grow their genre-specific communities through focused curation. As observed in the latest update, communities under the program have grown both in number of subscriptions and in engagements within their members. By highlighting great posts by users in a particular community, they are encouraged to level up their game or maintain the quality of their posts.

To further help communities, OCD is now conducting weekly contests! The aim is to increase subscriptions and engagements by highlighting a particular community for a week. All other communities within the incubation program will carry on with the usual curation activities. With the help of community leaders and moderators, we at OCD will focus more on those posts within that highlighted community for a week.

Hi, Good morning. I am willing to join this contest but may I have some clarifications? Does it necessary to be where the country you are from? Can you consider another country I traveled to where I appreciated their designs as well? Thank you.

Hello @missdonna. Architecture from other countries you’ve traveled to are considered. Please take note that we’ll give more preference to contest entries where the authors include themselves and personally appear in the photos/videos together with the featured architecture. Thank you.

Thank you for the response @aplusd. I finally got the confirmation I needed. It's a big help. Hopefully to join soon.
