📷 Steemit Photo Challenge - Winners Animal Portrait #60 - THE RETURN! New Theme, New Prizes. — Please Resteem!

Welcome back to the

Steemit Photo Challenge!

I took a bit of a hiatus at the end of 2017 due to being very distracted with various things.
But here we are, in 2018. Let’s see how this goes!
Due to the increase in price for Steem and SBD, we’re going to have to change up how the prizes are done.

I’m going to experiment with Steem Power prizes!

First Place: 20 SP
Second Place: 10 SP
Third Place: 5 SP
Honourable Mentions — 2 SP Each
I may play around with these prizes depending on the response from the community. The goal is to be self-sustaining.
These have been provided by the #1 sponsor of the Steemit Photo Challenge, since 2016 — @berniesanders.

Don’t forget that you can view past winners and the current theme over at SteemitPhotoChallenge.com
For those who are not familiar with the Steemit Photo Challenge, please read the rules below.
Remember to include SteemitPhotoChallenge in the title of the post AND as a tag, this is so that the judging app built by @blueorgy will pull the entry in for judging. Reason for this is that I was getting a lot of spam that I had to sort through and this is a good way to stop that — so remember to put it in or your entry may not be included!

The theme was

Animal Portrait

Really nice photo, full of personality.

Congrats everyone!

The next theme will be

Human Body

Images featuring parts of the human body — limbs, torso, eyes, fingers, that sort of thing. Go for an interesting composition! NSFW is allowed, just tag it as such and put NSFW in the title, please. NSFW is less likely to make it into the final post, so keep that in mind when submitting. It has to be pretty good and purposeful.
Deadline Thursday 18th January 04:00:00 GMT.
Winners will be announced on Friday 19th


I check the entries, and I report plagiarism. Do yourself a favour and keep plagiarism out of my contest. Thanks! If you see plagiarism, downvote it and leave a comment with the source.

Rules And Conditions

Please read these carefully and adhere to them

  • I strongly encourage you to post work that is original to this challenge, in other words — take a new photograph instead of using an old one.

  • No more than 3 entries will be considered, if you post more than 3 then only the first 3 will be considered.

  • All entries must be a post tagged both #photography and #steemitphotochallenge

  • The Title should contain "SteemitPhotoChallenge Entry" along with the title of your work. The software will not pull your entry into the judging app if this is not here. The purpose is to cut out the spam that ends up in the tag.

  • Let us know the medium used to produce the photograph, it may be more impressive based on what it is.

  • Basic processing is allowed. ‘Digital art’ won’t be considered.

  • Any medium or format is allowed — iphone, ipad, film, digital, point and shoot, drone, whatever. Once it takes a picture. Note that image quality will be considered.

  • Multiple Entries can all go in one post, just put the details under the image.
  • Any attempt to steal others' work is considered a serious infraction by the community, so don't do it. Please don't waste your and our time by posting some image from the net.
  • Every effort will be made to ensure that we do not reward theft. All images will be reverse checked, if the image has been found on more than 2 “major” websites, it will be disqualified unless reasonable proof can be shown to prove ownership of the original. If there is any doubt whatsoever about the ownership of the photograph, I reserve the right to disqualify the image. It is in your interest to provide any proof necessary. I would appreciate any help from the community in finding plagiarism where I might have missed it.
  • The photographs will be judged on how well they met the challenge, the quality of the image, the composition, lighting, exposure, creativity and the general aesthetics which means that yes, it is subjective.

By entering this competition you acknowledge that you own the rights to the photographs and allow for me to re-post the image should it receive a winner or honourable mention position.
