PhotoChain Challenge: 9th Edition Start - 8th Edition's WinnerssteemCreated with Sketch.


Hello World!

This is the 9th 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 8th 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 8TH EDITION the transaction id.

And the Winner is...

The 8th Edition counted 4 (four) valid participants.

The Key-Subjects were:
Grave and Leaves

These are the 2 winners of the 8th Edition:

Winner 1

with her crux in the foreground before a multitude of leaves

The personal subject is Green

Winner 2


with a beautiful and esoteric paired subjects

The personal subject is Wall

I also had promised to reward the 2 winners with a Derangedcoin. Also this week, I liked the other images and 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!
@iamraincrystal @melinda010100 @qwerrie and @paradigm42 (I like your photo but the trace of the leaves was really thin)



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:

9th Edition

The KEY-SUBJECTS for this week are:


Simpler than the past week? Maybe...or not. To you the arduous sentence. Another thing: I will have soon a good news for you :)

This week, more prizes!

Number 1

Every Participant will receive 5000 GEEKs, thanks to @qwerrie and @melinda010100 that sent to me a great quantitative of this token. I have 53000 GEEKs available while stocks last.

Number 2

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 hour 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 in the comment section of this week's edition.



  • 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.

  • 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.

PS: The signiture says in Russian: "God knows all your secrets; but do you know His secrets?..")

Funny thing: you never know when you capture the images (some bizarre and strange stuff, if/when they will fit neatly. Its so strange and so funny! I shot it for the signiture I considered to be intresting, but it was the green wall, that worked! well, this time..

Very good!!

Great, I like. Good creative process and good photo. Another time welcome and another time to the next sunday :)

Deserves a !BEER

would be extremely nice to see more entries this round. do join, please. warmly welcome!

Hey @qwerrie, here is a little bit of BEER from @seckorama for you. Enjoy it!

Ah, good one for this week's contest!

Mr Random helped me in this hard situation! I havent got green walls anywhere around me, really!

It turned out great!

Ahhh when I saw the subjects this week I thought immediately of my favourite drone photo to date! This is a dry-stone WALL and large tree that has been DESTROYED in a GREEN field in the Lake District, UK. My new subject is therefore Destroyed/Destruction. 3. DJI_0067.jpg

Sometimes also the destruction leave a beautiful present. In this case, a nice view.
Welcome in this week edition 🙂

Love that photo, @dronegraphica!

wow!! amazing entry, I really can imagine this being your fave drone photo. really amazing. thanks for entering the chain! uh... a small request if you let me... could you make the pics clickable?

Thanks bud! It us my favourite:) how do you mean clickable?

I mean you can add a link to your pic, and if I click it, the original hi-res file will be opened, so I could see it in all detailed beauty. otherwise, by default, all one can see is a resized version, 640px by width. its a bit sadly, when it comes to the pics that deserve watching!

A-ha! Let's see what I found in my stash of photos... I finally got the chance to visit Callao Cave in Cagayan. This was another item on my travel bucket list. Green + wall + light (it's from sunlight shining into the cave)

thank you... Houston, we have just a little problem -- no green walls here... nothing like that at all. :=)

I saw a beautiful baby in your photos. Arm she with a brush and colors and I'm sure she will give you a nice green wall :P

no! she is very reluctant, especially when there is something-on-demand. but, i already managed it, and i have a very nice new keyword. you will see!!!! !BEER ?!

Hey @davidesimoncini, here is a little bit of BEER from @qwerrie for you. Enjoy it!
