Contests, Giveaways and Raffles!

Everybody’s working for the weekend, everybody wants a new bunch of SBI shares! Ok, so it isn’t the Loverboy song you might know but it’s a better version for those of us still sticking it out on Steem. Make it worth your time by getting some more SBI shares in this weekend’s contests.

Quite a few industrious Steemians run contests regularly. Here is a list of the ones we know about at the moment. All of these have been running for months so you can count on their posted schedule.

Be sure to check each account and look for the contest name as the links change each week. Also remember to read the full contest description as the rules and prize values sometimes change.

Wednesday Walk

Wednesday Walk

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of and share a post on a Wednesday with the #wednesdaywalk tag for a chance to receive SBI.

Pirate Sunday


Come help tell the adventures of Captain K, a fictional character with a quite a history! To enter, read the current post and previous stories, then write your own version of what “piratey” things he gets up to next.

ZapFic Writing Contest


Like super short stories? Try writing one in 232 characters or fewer for your chance to win SBI in this contest run by @felt.buzz. Every Wednesday he posts a new prompt to use for your very short story. You can post your story wherever you want, just make sure to keep it under 232 characters.



Mizu No Oto is founded on the belief that every image has a haiku. It’s an @bananafish contest curated by @marcoriccardi, a real haijin (haiku poet) and it's a great occasion to learn this form of poetry. It runs twice monthly, once in English and once in Spanish.

@phortun´s Monday tipping contest

Weekly guessing game: guess the price of Steem in seven days and win 5 SBI

Easy SBI Contest

The ‘Easy SBI contest’ requires you to leave a link to your best post.
(within payout window at the time of comment). SBI shares will be awarded to the authors of posts which I thought was the most interesting and valuable to the Steem ecosystem.The winner is drawn at random each week.


The folks over at @freewritehouse run three contests each week. All of them are designed to encourage community engagement and highlight other's work. Besides the prizes from the @freewritehouse account, they are always interested in hearing from anyone who will sponsor a contest and so they can offer even bigger prizes.

Favorite Freewrite

A Favorite Freewrite You Read contest runs every Tuesday for just 24 hours. You need to read some freewrites written (you can read this post to see what they are), and then comment on the contest posts about which ones you liked best and why. If they choose your comment you win units of SBI.

Favorite Freewrite Poem

Recommend your Favorite Freewrite Poem is a poetry version of the Favorite Freewrite contest and it runs every Friday. Make a comment about a freewrite poem you loved and you could win SBI units. But be quick! When Friday is over, so is the contest - until the next week that is.


The FreeWrite House We-Writes kick it off every Monday with a new prompt. Just complete the story with a five minute free write (or longer if you choose) and you could win 5 SBI shares.

Paying it Forward


In the spirit of helping new Steemians, this contest focuses on curating great content and is run by @pifc. It runs weekly on Mondays and asks that you find two "High Quality Original Content Blog Posts" to recommend for curation. Four judges decide which recommendations were the best and multiple winners get SBI units. Follow @pifc to see the latest contest post and read it for full details.

Punday Monday


From the creator:

What is Punday?
Punday is the best day. It's the day we post a topic upon which you are invited to pun in the comments for a chance at SBI shares. You get to read all the incredible puns, and you can try your hand at puns, and you can just bask in the warmth and love that punsters offer. I am your Puntender, and I serve hot puncakes with Mapun Syrpun.
