Photo 52, 2020 Challenge, Week Number 1

in photography •  5 months ago  (edited)

This weeks theme: Hello Selfie!

Welcome to my Photo 52 Challenge Contest, 2020 Edition! This contest is an extension of a Photo 52 project, in which a person takes one photo every week based on a pre-defined weekly theme. For this contest I will supply the weekly theme, and the community will supply their photos! At the end of each week I will determine a weekly champion.

This Steem account, "photo52", was created specific for this contest by @wwwiebe. All rewards and prizes will be issued by photo52.


  1. Weekly theme will be supplied every Wednesday.
  2. Weekly challenge closes midnight EST (GMT-5) the following Tuesday.
  3. On Wednesday I will present the weekly champion as well as the new theme for the week.
  4. Upvotes are not required but are appreciated.
  5. Resteem is not required but is appreciated to get the word out.
  6. Please use three tags in your entry:
    3. PHOTO52
  7. Please also reply to this post with a link to your weekly entry.

The Weekly champion will receive that week's prize.

Weekly Prize

  • 50 PHOTO
  • 20 CCC

Final Prize

As stated, this photo52 account is dedicated to this year-long contest; as such, all upvote rewards will be available at the end of the year for a final grand prize.

At the end of the year I will put up a dPoll with all of the weekly contest champions, at which point there will be a few days before NYE where the community can vote for the Grand Champion. The Grand Champion will receive 60% of all Steem in the Photo52 account by Dec 31! For instance, if the account has a total of 100 Steem, then 60 Steem will be given to the Grand Champion.

All 52 themes have already been created and can be viewed here:!AhEIx14z2g9DkbcQ_MkBBO3-fNQ5PA

This weeks theme: Hello Selfie!


Take a selfie to welcome in the New Year! Any selfie will do, but the more interesting the better. Set up a camera with a timer and hurry in front of it, or find a creative means of using mirrors. Be creative!

My very first selfie and attempt....

Can you see the frustration on my face, trying to shop for affordable furniture (in this case a mirror) ?

I'll start off by confirming that this is indeed my account and my contest. I'm using the photo52 account specific for this purpose. Let's try to spread the word and see some good photos! I will also participate weekly, but will only win if there are no other entrants. Please don't let me win. :)

Nope I am with you 1 done 51 to go 😉

Thanks for the curation @wesphilbin! I'm really hoping the year long contest gets some good exposure and brings some people together.

I'm still going to do #crappycameraphotos from my main account and keep this one, for the time being, dedicated to this project.

What a cool idea for a contest, now I do hate taking selfies but i will try and slip one in so I can join :)

Thanks @tattoodjay! I think it'll be a good year of fun. :)

Sure sounds Like it will be :)

I sincerely hope so! 2019 was damn great, despite of some falls.


Cool photo contest!
Selfies to start with - Ahh!
I'll see what I can come up with!

Thanks @porters! I do hope you get the chance to participate. It's a "come and go" contest, so if any one week doesn't speak to you, perhaps the next one might!

I want to join the fun! Check out my post here:

This looks like it could be pretty fun to watch progress over the weeks.

Love it! Thank you for entering!

This looks to be a really neat contest. I am sure you will get some really interesting entries. Maybe I might scare some people with some of my selfies!

Thank you for sharing this with everyone on the PYPT Show this past week.

Well, thankfully only the very first (and the very last) week's are selfies. I'm really looking forward to some awesome entries through the year. Thanks for stopping by!

Awesome! Thank you for entering! And yeah, it's a really cool hat. :)

It is! Have you written about its origins here somewhere? x

About my particular hat? Nope. But that's not a bad idea!

Well, it has me curious already! 👊😄

Look forward to seeing what comes next! My submission my friend:

Great to see you enter!

This will take me out of a comfort zone...
Looking forward to this year!
Here we go to my selfie!

That was an awesome entry!

Great idea @wwwiebe! Let's see how far we can go with it :)

Thanks so much! Right through to the end of the year! :)

Hello! :) Totally joining in this challenge, despite being slightly scared about the selfies, haha!

Great to have you! And absolutely no need to be scared. We're all friends here! And if we're not yet, we will be. :)
