Hello World and welcome to PhotoChain for the first edition of the new Year!

Waiting for a little surprise I will publish in the next days...

This is the 50th 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 49th 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 49th EDITION the confirmation of transactions.

And the Winner is...

The 49th Edition counted 7 (Seven) valid participants...

The two Key-Subjects were:

Blue and Religion

These are the 2 Winners of the 49th Edition:

Winner 1


with a fantastic and fascinating foreground

The personal subject is Glass

Winner 2


with a simple religious book sauced up with a touch of good saturation blue

The personal subject is Book

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

The first honorable mention is:

The second honorable mention is:


by @thebigsweed

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:

50th Edition

The KEY-SUBJECTS for this week are:


They seem apparently not connected to each other, we will see what you will do in the week. Moreover, I have a little surprise for you, and I will publish it in the next days :) Thank you to join in!



-- --- ---- 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.

Here is my entry for the ‘GLASS and BOOK’ week. This was a few years ago in my hometown – an attempt of culture promotion and getting some profit in the process: The book behind the watchmaker’s window is called ‘A Fistful of Darkness’…

They say that books reflect life, also that when we read we reflect ourselves in the book. Be that as it may, reading is like entering the world behind a mirror, the mind of its author.

# Proposed topic: Reflections :

Very cool shot!
