Beach Wednesday new edition is live

Glad the new old tag is welcomed by some of you guys - appreciate every submission and all entries get some rewards, not only the top 3. Please join our re-vamped contest around the beautiful beaches of our beautiful planet. Read on for the background of this, what we want, the rules and what you can win apart from being recognized as a great photographer. I am using also the #pob tag this time, a tribe I am pretty confident currently to be a great one moving forward, i hope no one sees photography as no brain work.

As announced some new rules for judging

Given there are so many great submissions I will leave the decision for winners to the previous edition champion @trangbaby - she is an expert, with a lot of brain and visual skills - we all are looking forward to your great content.

More background

Guys, I decided to re-vitalize my #beachwednesday with an official bi-weekly contest like #SunThursday. It was about time to do so. The guys that know me from pre-blockchain communities are aware of that photography challenge I invented ages ago. I also introduced this to Steem / Hive early 2017 and was thrilled by all the great people using it posting about beaches around the world. At that time it was a fun photography challenge I curated with my votes and engagement - the lovely @lizanomadsoul took it over to curate after 2 years but we hardly had any posts since one year.

Why a contest now?

Given the #SunThursday contest is now running since nearly 6 months with great submissions, a lovely small community and I often get asked how we can reward great photography on the blockchain I decided to also run a little bi-weekly contest for Beach Wednesday starting NEXT Week, Wednesday, March 3!

Check the tag #BeachWednesday and jump to 2017

To get a feeling about this please search the tag via "recent" here on Peakd / Hive to see many submissions from 2017-2019. Even there was no prize money involved - many people joined as they love to post for fun. This one as well as my SunThursday and DanceWeekend challenges have their special little places in my heart and will always try to submit posts ongoing (sentimental moments lol - I know!).


I still believe these little tags and micro-communities are fun and can connect many people from different regions - kind of small communities. BeachWednesday is not totally new - even before Steemit abd later Hive I hosted this on other platforms. Feel free to keep using the tag and who knows, maybe this will become a Hivemind community soon 😂. I am always delighted to see the great moments and stories you post weekly.

I hope this contest will drive again some engagement around its niche topic and attract photography junkies (amateurs and professionals) to use this blockchain and this tag to show the beauty of our lovely world.

This contest will have some rules, prizes for the winner (hope you read on) are some decent votes from @theycallmedan - so the Top 3 will get some vote between 7.5 to 20% by one of the driving forces behind our blockchain - just as a small hint - a 10% vote currently is worth around $4 aka 20 Hive.

And here are the rules

Please create a post using the tag BeachWednesday showing your own original photography or video work covering the beaches from lakes, oceans etc or write about the topic, short or long stories are also welcomed. The three best submissions will receive their winner upvotes within one day after the winner post.

  • Post photography, video or written content covering the topic BEACH

  • Use the tag #BeachWednesday 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 3, 10am CET to make sure we have enough time to select the winner

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

This is a fun contest where I still am searching for sponsors - for now this is what the top 3 will receive:

1. Prize: 20% Upvote by @theycallmedan - worth around $20
2. Prize: 15% Upvote by @theycallmedan - worth around $15
3. Prize: 10% Upvote by @theycallmedan - worth around $10

Always open for community sponsors

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


I think you need to add another date in your post:''Contest submissions will need to be made until April 19, 10am CET to make sure we have enough time to select the winner'' This one must be from the last contest.

Oh yes! Thx for checking, edited :-)

Mhhh I could write about how I am afraid of the ocean by now even though I made my divers license as a child. Nothing really happened, just me getting older, a lot of movies and stuff and the thought that a human is really effing helpless under water.

sounds like a potential creative post dude :-)

ich wollte fragen wegen original Content. Ich würde gern ein Bild vom Unterbacher See über den ich auch reden will mit reinnehmen, ich müsst mir da aber was aus dem Internet klauen. Ist das OK wenn ich das entsprechend kennzeichne und verlinke oder soll ich lieber einen Post ohne Bild machen dafür 100% Original?

Ich gehe mal davon aus der Post sollte in Englisch sein oder geht auch Deutsch?

Das ist so ne Sache, für mich ist es ok das zu verlinken mit Quelle, aber ich bin nur ich und kein Chain Hüter. Sprache ist egal.

This week's beach, also a memory, of course. An ordinary beach, from my point of view.
An Ordinary Beach


it still looks very pristine. That's very nice 🏖️

Thank you!

Amazing post @bluemoon !!! Such a beautiful beach city you show us. Great captures and very detailed. I appreciated it. So your entry deserve as the winner 1 this round :) Congrats 💝

Thank you very much for your choice. You are among the few jurors who chose for the entire post and not for the photo, which is not the best. Thank you for understanding what I wanted to convey and for appreciating this.

Greetings, I participated in the previous contest and I have a question, the publication must be made in a specific community?
I love this contest, it enhances the beauty of our planet.

Hey mate - thanks for the encouraging words.

You can post where ever you want, no specific community required but you should use the #BeachWednesday tag.

Here's my entry. The waves. Southside, Seal Beach, California


wao, impresive shot! Power of nature in your photo 👌

Thank you very much :)

Awesome contest, here is my entry from Black See party hub:


Good luck in the contest. You surprised me, Vama Veche has been my favorite place for summer vacation for more than ten years.

Incredible what has been there created from this small fishing village, I was there only for a short time a wonderful special and interesting place. Many thanks!

What can I say. I was in Vama Veche when there was nothing built (from a tourist point of view) and then I liked it the most.
I'm glad you liked it now, thank you!

HERE we go again! 😎
