Rules for judging

Given there are so many great submissions the decision for winners to the previous edition champion as the judge like we have it for SunThursday so in this case I would ask our new winner @seangold to become the judge for edition no. 9 which is starting soon (next week).

Bit background on the contest / tag

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

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 and 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 (haha, nice one from the past!) soon 😂. I am always delighted to see the great moments and stories you post weekly.

So no prizes - Why should I bother to submit?

Well, as a community we first shall have fun, right? So 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, no Hive prizes for the winner (hope you read on) but 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.

Rules for next edition - submissions to start June 24

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

  • GOOD LUCK!

  • Contest submissions will need to be made until May 31, 10am CET to make sure we have enough time to select the winner

  • Decision on the winner will be made by myself for the first edition, might change with a jury later.

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 :-).

Congratulations to all the winners! I absolutely love the first one, @seangold, you really hit this one out of the park. I feel like I am sitting on the beach, enjoying the view! Great job and a well-deserved first place!

@kohsamui99 Holy wow! I am coming with you and the wife on the next visit here. Stunning long view and wow! It is such a great shot of the rippling water and sandy beach. You are always a shoo-in!

@dodovietnam You always have that mood thing down pat! I love the mist lifting from the colorful scene, so soft and lilting against the jagged edges of rock. I can always count on you to wow me. Thank you!

Great job, great entries! They are always a pleasure to come and look at!

Congratulations all the beach bums! Some really spectacular seaside photos. I need to set myself a reminder to add my own beach memories. Especially considering how freezing our winter is. Thanks for the initiative @uwelang. Here's dreaming about a splash in the waves
