Sun Thursday Contest Issue 23 is Ready for your submissions

in #sunthursday3 months ago


It is that day again for SunThursday - 25 edition jubilee coming soon

While it is raining and snowing again Sun in Munich, and we are getting back to Winter even Summer should start let us get to some positive moments - where is the sun only? Please join our 23rd edition of sunny moments as a little contest.

The usual rules

Please create a post using the tag SunThursday showing your own original photography or video work covering the sun or write about positivity which I link to the sun which enabled and maintains the possibility of life in general. The three best submissions will receive their prize token after 5 days.

  • Post photography, video or written content covering the topic SUN
  • Use the tag #SunThursday as your first tag
  • Add link to your submission in the comments on THIS post
  • Consider to "vote&reblog" this post to spread the contest (not mandatory but it might help)
  • Only original (your own) content will qualify
  • Contest submissions will need to be made until May 11, 10am CET to make sure we have enough time to select the winner
  • Decision on the winner will hopefully be made by @kohsamui99 - the winner of the previous Sun Thursday week. Please let me know if you are happy to judge (please note: you can not attend this time then) or not.

We would need to have the decision by May 12, 8am CET to ensure the votes will be given as part of the prize.

What to win (contest will be handled every two weeks)

This is a fun contest where I still am searching for sponsors - for now the following rewards will be paid to the three winners:

1. Prize: 3 Hive
2. Prize: 2 Hive
3. Prize: 1 Hive

PLUS - all three will receive a little UPVOTE by @theycallmedan - thanks for supporting this!

Many THANKS again to the sponsors

We have some great Hive users that sent me some Hive to support the winning three entries.

@dswigle - a lovely lady from the US that I know since times way before the Steem blockchain was invented - she generously sponsored at least 100 Hive from her own pockets in the meantime

@ervin-lemark - one of the legends on the blockchain, here since I can think of blockchain also sponsored over 20 Hive

@theycallmedan - I am sure all of you know this Hive supporter and promoter - he will vote the three winning posts moving forward.

Always open for community sponsors

Please comment or DM me if you want to support great photography content creators. Ideally a community or whales joins the party so we do not get stuck with small user pocket money only :-).

My entry of Sun Thursday Contest Issue 23

sunset 2.jpg

Short desciption:

While the sun comes down slowly farmers here are finishing the harvesting of the rice in paddy fields and going back home with a smile on their face as they take their product home. These have always been such good memories of mine from my childhood and even to this day. This is peacefulness to me.

With me, Happyness always come from the Little Things of normal Life ❤️

Thx a lot for submitting, appreciate all of these great sunny posts

Ich glaube Du bist unter den ersten 3 - zumindest hab ich das mal so gevoted - offizielles Announcement morgen, da ist ja erst Donnerstag - hier leider voller Regen, keine Sonne in Sicht.

Yay, cool. Wie auch immer das ausgeht für mich, danke für deine Stimme. Trotz des Regens, durchhalten, eine Sonne für uns alle! Die zeigt sich noch :)

Edit: Ah lol, da war ich zu langsam. Danke, hab es in die Top 3 geschafft. Gerade erst gesehen.

Let my contest entry take you on a little trip from Berlin to Nice 🖖🏼😎🤙🏼

Alter, das ist geil - schön, dass Du an meinem Contest teilnimmst, ich glaube ja dass Du einiges abräumen wirst - dieses mal wohl nicht Top 3 - mach beim nächsten mal neben dem Link vielleicht gleich ein Foto as dem Post in den Kommentar - Danke Dir und viele Grüße in die Hauptstadt!

Klaro, neulich drüber gestolpert und gleich maln entry gemacht ☀️Wusste nich, dass ein Foto im Contest Post notwendig is oder hilft. Da du ja auch schreibst dasses dir auch um mehr als nur Fotos geht ging ich davon aus das alle entry posts auch angesehen werden 🤔 anyway, next time denne. Grüsse auuuuus Berlin 🖖🏼😎🤙🏼

Muss nicht aber mag helfen, eventuell lieg ich da ja auch falsch :-)

Hab leider noch nich genug beer um einen auszugeben, dann halt wenigstens so … 🍺🍻😁

This is a great contest. Many thanks to you, @uwelang, and this is my entry for the contest.

Sunset and anglers


Thank you very much!

Love this # series! And I managed to post - yay me 😉
Into The Sun

Das hast schön gemacht - wenn ich Juror wäre hättest Du was gewonnen, aber bitte weitermachen :-)

Hahaha - schön, daß Dir das Foto gefällt. Und kein Problem. Für mich war das Wichtigste endlich mal wieder etwas zu posten.

I am pleased to be able to show you this beautiful sunset that I lived in one of the beaches of my beloved Venezuela, I hope you enjoy as much as I did when I created the post and I hope you visit my beautiful land someday when you have the opportunity. 💛💙❤️

The sun, in its most famous form, doesn't appear much. However, it's about the sun, literally and figuratively!

The Sun Everywhere, the Big Sun and the Small One
