Make a video about yourself and win a Ticket to Steemfest!

in #busy3 years ago
Hello guys! Recently we started the contest to win a Steem Fest ticket sponsored by @blocktrades and @openmic but too many people thought it was a singing contest and didn´t joined in the fun. Well, let me tell you something...

This is not a singing contest. All you have to do is record yourself talking about some topics!

Many people told me "Oh, but I´m not a singer, I won´t join that one". So yeah, the general perception of this contest wasn´t what we meant, that´s why we decided to be more clear about the dynamic of this particular contest and to give everyone one more week to submit their entries.

Do you already feel like joining? Great, here are the rules for the contest:

Record yourself on your cell phone

  • Tell us about yourself. The real person behind the Steemit username. After all, if you win, we´ll be meeting in person in less than 3 months.

  • Your story on Steemit. When did you join, why, how etc. How do you engage with the community, what do you do on a daily basis on Steemit or any of the other DApps.

  • Why do you want to attend SteemFest and what can you add to the community by attending.

  • And the most important part... Tell us the direction you would like to see Steemit move towards. The idea is to record yourself telling your fellow Steemians what you want Steem to become and how you think you can help that reality come true.

  • Once you made your recording, upload it to DTube, YouTube, or Vimeo then post it on your blog. Add any other pics or storyline you would like to include on your blog.

We'll pick the best responses and announce the winner.

This contest sounds very easy to follow, but I find it difficult to follow it because I don't understand how to upload videos via Youtube or DTube ...
Please tell me the amount of the prize so I struggle to follow it ... hehe

The prize is a Steem Fest ticket and accommodation in Poland :)

If you pay for all the tickets and accommodations to go there, I will be very excited to participate in this contest, but I want you to take care of Ewa Swaboda in order to be my wife, I like her ...:)
Don't let me go far to Poland but can't get her ... Hahaha

Here is my entry. I messed up the first tag and couldn’t edit after I posted, but oh well! Haha, thanks for giving us the opportunity to do this, guys! :)

Nice one. I would have loved to join but no money for flight ticket all the way from Nigeria

It would be great if you could join! But hey, at least share this with your community, perhaps someone wants to participate in the contest.

Thats true. Just resteemed

Hey Eric ☆
If I make a vid for this contest, and if I won, could I give my ticket to someone else?

Hey Amy! Let me get back to you in a while :)

Oh que bueno ésto amigo @anomadsoul, no hice mi entrada tal como lo tenía planeado ya que mi cámara sufrió una avería, pero (con esta prórroga) tengo tiempo de mandarla arreglar, grabar y poder participar.
Gracias por otorgarnos mas tiempo...
Me encanta la idea de participar.

Looks like the entries were slow to roll in but people are entering now. We're getting more every day.

Here is my entry:

I used DLive for my entry, reason why dlive tags were first and second

@anomadsoul, my question: 18:00 UTC is 2 pm in Venezuela? Is would be awesome if you could answer that question for me. I want to participate. I don't see much valid entries from Hispanic Community. Only @ylich's... Thanks!
