Contest Time - Halloween Theme


Now that the Photography Lovers Community is getting more and more organized. It is time to get the photo contests up and running again.

I, @derangedvisions, have run the Deranged Photography Contest for a long time on Hive/Steem, but I feel it would be better to run it as a community contest and have people post their submissions into the Photography Lovers Community.

The theme for this contest is Halloween. So let's see all of your scary pictures that showcase how great the Halloween holiday is. The creepier the better.

How is the Photography Lovers Contest set up?


The contest is broken up into 2 different tiers. Each will have a different rewards for the winners based on what tier you enter into.

Here is a breakdown of the rewards based on the tiers:

1st5 Hive4 Hive
2nd3 Hive2 Hive
3rd2 Hive1 Hive

Each contest will be open for submissions for 6 days and close on the 7th day so that winners can be picked and the new post can be made.

There will be a new theme announced each week and the themes are going to be a bit different than the traditional themes. The goal of the themes are to challenge your skill as a photographer and force you to think outside the box to get some really interesting photos.

How to enter


When you enter a photo in the competition, you will state what tier you want to be judged in and locked in for the month at that level.

For example if you enter a photo, you drop the photo in the comment section, state what level of photographer you are, and then give a description of the photograph.

That's pretty much it, drop your main photo in the comment section of this post and state your tier. If you want to make a separate post for your entry as well, that is fine, but for your entry to be valid, your photo and tier must be in here in the comment section of this post. You are also encouraged to join the Photography Lovers Community and make your post to the Photography Lovers Community.

Additional Notes


  • If your post has more than one photo in it, make sure to use the photo you wanted judged as your main photo for your post.

  • Only one submission per contest. Extra submissions will be ignored.

  • You can switch your tier ONE time per month, but only if you are moving up into a higher tier, for example if you are currently in the amateur tier, but you think that you have a photograph that you want to enter in the professional tier, you can state that you are changing your tier to professional. You will then be locked into the new tier for the remainder of the month. You are not able to move down to a lower tier, like going from amateur to the beginner tier.

  • If you do not state which tier you want to be judged in for the month, I will leave a comment to remind you to do so, but if you don't respond, you will be assigned to a tier and locked in for that month.

  • Plagiarism will not be tolerated in any form. All submissions must be your own work. I will investigate every entry and if you are caught plagiarizing, you will be blacklisted from competing in my competitions.

Thank you!


Thank you for being a part of the Photography Lovers Community here on Hive. We are looking forward to seeing your entry for this contest.


That's dope. I love the lighting.

One softbox in a friends living room.

also. i don't see the post in the community. maybe you should cross post it there, so more people will see it.

I think moving forward, I will be using a different account for all of the curation and contest posts in this community since there is no easy way to post using the community account and have it actually show up in the community feed or be able to pin it.

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.

I love these kinds of contests! Just today I shared this photo in a publication I hope it's valid for the contest.
