Self-Portrait Photo Contest - 15th Week

in #contest2 years ago

Dear Steemians,

By organizing this #contest I wanted to contribute to the further development & growth of the #Steemit community!

There were 4 entries in the 14th & it was difficult to choose the winners & share the prizes cause all the entries were great!! The post with the results & explanations can be seen on the following address:


Be creative & make self-portraits not in that common way as the trendy "selfies" but in a high quality way partly describing yourself & your way of life. Every each of us has many different roles to play in life: worker, sportsman, soldier, writer, driver, lover, husband, father, wife, mother, artist, model, waitress, lawyer, dancer, actress, scientist, doctor, singer, musician, politician, manager, nurse, porn star, prostitute, gigolo, pimp... or some kind of an imaginary character - somebody who you would like to be... There is plenty of inspiration for the theme!

Nudes are also very appreciated & welcomed as well as the conceptual & art #photography.

#Photos can be full color, b&w & #monochrome tones.

How to apply for the #contest:

  1. Use a #self-portrait tag as one of your tags in the post.
  2. Clearly mention the #self-portrait photo contest in your post title or post body & tag me in your post - @careassaktart (As this will help to grow this contest). For example: "This is my entry for the #self-portrait photo contest by @careassaktart"
  3. Ad a short story / explanation / description to the photo.
  4. Your #self-portraits must be your original work as well as the text following! Stolen content will be immediately reported to @steemcleaners.
  5. Post a link to your entry in the comment below this post.
  6. Please write in English.

Deadline: Thursday, 1st of July 2019, 11:30 PM Central European Standard Time zone in Zagreb (GMT+1)

This is not a selfie #contest & selfies are not acceptable & will be refused & disqualified!

If you don't know the difference between #self-portrait & #selfie & consider to participate in my contest, I advise you to please read the following article:

Even thou I have no Gypsy roots in my family, sometimes I really feel like a true Gypsy. This photo was shot in a broken-down motel Panorama which is proclaimed a cultural heritage cause it was designed by a famous Yugoslavian architect Ivan Vitić & there are only few of a kind on the Adriatic coast. So, it's pretty unique & protected by the law. In the time when the photo was shot, I just came back from India with a bunch of crazy clothes. I was lucky to have these 2 extraordinary beautiful girl-friends who were ready to be my models. They were very young & crazy at the time. Today both of them are mother & still very beautiful! The photo was made with Canon 60D & Canon 10-22 mm lens on a tripod & timer.

It would be nice to have a #sponsor who would #delegate some SP so that this #contest can develop further more & that the prizes can be bigger...

By #delegating SP to me for the purpose of this #contest, you become a #sponsor / supporter & you will be mentioned in every next #self-portrait connected post of mine!

I'm looking forward to see your entries!

No Upvote, No Resteem, No Follow required. Of course, all the help and support you give is greatly appreciated and absolutely voluntary.
