PhotoChain Challenge: 53rd Edition Start - 52nd Edition's Winners

in Feel Good10 months ago (edited)


Hello World!

This is the 53rd 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. I changed the rules of the winner prize since the last edition.

In this post, I'll announce the 2 winners of the 52nd 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 52nd EDITION the confirmation of transactions.

And the Winner is...

The 52nd Edition counted only 3 (Three) valid participants...

The two Key-Subjects were:

Plate and Gun

These are the 2 Winners of the 52nd Edition:

Winner 1



with an ancient cannon near a colored plate

The personal subject is Key

Winner 2


with combative least at the table

The personal subject is Red

As I promised, I will award the 2 winners with 1 HIVE token each, and I will award other 2 photos that I appreciated during the edition.

Today, only one honorable mention:

Prize for the next edition: 2 HIVE, 1 each winner of the current edition; & 2 Hive SBI, 1 each honorable mention of the edition they joined.



This is for EVERYONE on the Hive platform.


No required UPVOTE, REHIVE, 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 criteria with which I'll choose them.

Are you Ready?


This week's edition is the:

53rd Edition

The KEY-SUBJECTS for this week are:


It seems a simple couple this time. After a few participants editions, maybe will have again a lot of them. At least, I hope so...



- -- --- 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.

  • GIFs are allowed only 1) if the duration is less or equal to 10 seconds; and 2) if the key-subjects remain in the foreground for the whole duration of the GIF.

  • 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. Excuse me for the delay I sometimes encounter in the transactions.

Now it's your turn.


Hello @davidesmoncini, here's my entry for the 53rd Edition. Good luck to all participants! Wishing you a pleasant day and please stay safe, cheers, ainie

awesome entry!! this week I managed to come up with something too.

Thanks @qwerrie, good for you, I will go check it out... lol I fear you will put any tough item for me like the gun, cheers, ainie


here is my entry; the keywords as:


Wow @qwerrie your photo is great, but the half-vintage key would actually be challenging to do.

haha! er... hmmm.... take a modern key, put it onto a vintage paper (or vice versa) = voyla! = we are there. this challenge is a bit about random and a bit about creativity!

but, generally speaking, I agree with you -- vintage does not fit well to a half. 'half heart' (Melinda's keyword) looks more promising...

all the best!

hummmm I really think so, maybe @melinda010100 goes better, who knows...

Great photo and I love that keyword choice, but I'm vintage and so is most everything I own!

which, to me, is a good thing, Melinda!
I am pleased you like by picture. will see, what will fill the next Photochain block!

Congrats to @adinapoli and @isabelpena! And thanks for the honorable mention sbi. Key and red..... Good pairing!

Thank you dear @melinda010100 congratulations to you too.

Here is my entry:
