PhotoChain Challenge: 19th Edition Start - 18th Edition's WinnerssteemCreated with Sketch.

in photochain •  last year  (edited)



Hello World!

This is the 19th 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. There, I explain the functioning of the contest and how to participate.

In this post, I'll announce the 2 winners of the 18th Edition of the Contest. Within the next 48 hours, I'll reward both of them with a 1 SBI share as explained in the regulation and will post in the comment section of the 18TH EDITION the transaction id.

And the Winner is...

The 18th Edition counted 13 (thirteen) valid participants...NEW RECORD!!!

The Key-Subjects were:
Forest and Water

These are the 2 winners of the 18th Edition:

Winner 1



with a scenographic landscape between the mountains

The personal subject is Mountains

Winner 2



with a simple but effective shot

The personal subject is Reflections

I had promised to reward the 2 winners with a Derangedcoin. Also this week, I decided to award all the participants because I can still afford it since the number of participants has remained so low. I reward you with a DERANGEDcoin in one of your next posts.

Thank you EVERYONE for participating in this week's contest!
@mauriciozoch @qwerrie @iamraincrystal @melinda010100 @gingbabida @nelinoeva @bucipuci @barbara-orenya @bambuka @adinapoli @centenojesus @isabelpena and @trincowski



This is for EVERYONE on the steemit platform.

2 SBI PRIZE in the launch-stage.

No required UPVOTE, RESTEEM, 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. I also explained there how the key-subject will change and the criterium with which I'll choose them.

Are you Ready?


This week's edition is the:

19th Edition

The KEY-SUBJECTS for this week are:


History repeats itself: after a very modest result, this week boom in participations. Delighted that there was this success. Next week is shaping up to be a little more complex. Let's wait to see how it goes ...


This week, more prizes!

The 2 winners will receive each a bot comment from deranged.coin. Actually, if I call deranged.coin, you will receive 1 DERANGEDCOIN TOKEN. If the rules will remain the same, every winner will receive 1 DERANGED.

-- --- ---- 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


  • When I choose a winner, I check his/her profile. If the author is to the attention of @steemcleaners or/and @cheetah, I will not confer the title. If you are in the blacklist of these accounts, consult one of their FAQ Page.

  • The duration of the contest: 7 days, from the start announcement post to 3 hours before the Post Payout Time.

  • 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.

@contestkings announced his intention to abandon the project due to personal problems. I sincerely thank him for his work and wish him all the best possible in the near future.


Now it's your turn.

And now, mountains and reflections... this is a another promise of wonderful photos for this week 😊

Cool photos! I'll enter again, if I find any shot that fits the subjects! 😎

Wow! Thank you so much for awarding the participants!!! 👍


reflections -- mountains -- moss

this is a capture I made during my 1st travel to ladoga skerries back in 2007. these granite rocks are part of the ancient mountains of the Kolsky Peninsula, which are 5 billion years old, and Lake Ladoga is the largest lake in Europe, almost a sea. (visible white line marks the different water level thru years).

I am saying a sincere THANK YOU to all 13 contestants that entered last time,-- THNK YOU for supporting this beautiful contest. goodbye, and next time!

Very nice photo qwerrie, I like. Welcome also this week 🙂

Congratulations to the winners!
This week I have to browse the old photos, because I live too far from the mountains.

same thing with me. absolutely no mountains in my life!


It will be hard to find something this time, but I keep on searching.
But you have a very nice entry. 😀

I rather agree with you.. it should be a landscape photo in a rocky location, with water and proper reflections... not that happens everyday :P

Here is my photo for this week's challenge - Mountains and Reflection.


It is an old photo I took back in 2009 in Switzerland. We are on a boat trip in Luzern lake, from where we were enjoying beautiful landscape.
My subject word is - house

Nice, welcome in this week edition 🙂

These are not great mountains reflected in the water. But it is a marble rock in Karelia. Very beautiful and strong place. And my next word is - BRANCH

Very good entry my friend 🙂
