Roundup of Contests, Competitions & Challenges on Steem @ 29 February 2020


Despite the excitement and drama of the past week, the contests, challenges and competitions on Steem keep on coming.

They offer such a great opportunity for people to have fun, engage with others on the platform, and win prizes - STEEM, tokens, upvotes.

I am sure I have still missed some but for this edition of the Contests Roundup we have 37 active contests listed.

These contests are comprised of 7 Arts & Craft related contests, 7 Food & Drink, 3 Music, 1 Pets, 8 Photography & Video, 2 Travel, 4 Writing, and 5 Miscellaneous. Something for everyone!

If you are aware of any contests not on the list please let me know.

If you are running a contest currently and I have missed it, please accept my apologies. Send me the details and I will add it in.



If you would like to help spread the word about all these great contests, you are welcome to resteem this post as well as the individual contest posts.

You can also share them in your communities and in your Discords.

Contests are a great way for newcomers especially to get more involved in the platform and to build up connections.

They may also be a good way to attract people to join Steem - everyone likes the chance to win something for free.

So if you are on Twitter maybe you can retweet my Tweet about this post, and maybe even share it on other social media.

Thank you.

Hi @pennsif

Just in case you haven't come across it so far, I'm running a collage contest called the LMAC (Let's make a collage) just a couple of days ago. The prize pool is filled with a total of 50 SP and there is a decent chance for all contestants to receive upvotes from me.

If you consider it a fit I would very much appreciate if you can add the LMAC to the list of art contests. Otherwise, let me know if more info is needed from my side. Thank you!

Thanks a lot for the mention in this one @pennsif of the @yourtop3 contest! Just somethings to change in the section if you would be cool with this:

We have a new and different topic each month which we announce on the 1st of each month so we can't give anything away until then - the themes do change each month though.

Prizes are mostly SBD but we do some STEEM as well.

Closing date for entries is always 9th of each month

Details - Follow @yourtop 3 or ask in our Discord

Thank you @pennsif for including the new community "WORLD OF XPILAR" # hive-185836
My digital photo contests have no deadline so it is possible to use older images I have produced. Because when they write / create a story about the image, the blog they post will be new and I will also give them a good upvote. When I have time, there may be 3-4 photo contests per week.
We'll also be back soon with the popular jigsaw puzzle competition that you probably remember
Rules and info will be updated eventually for the community "WORLD OF XPILAR

Dear @pennsif

It seem that project.hope was one of very few communities which joined your contest called "community of the week".

However till today results of this contest has not been announced and it feels like my efforts to join that contest were pointless :(

Could I ask you for some update please? Right now several people from our hive have been asking me if I know who won and if I'm in touch with you - and I'm not sure what to think and what to tell them, since I kind of feel ignored (I wrote to you on steemit and discord and I didn't receive any reply). Not cool :(

Yours, Piotr

Hi Piotr - you might have notice there were a few things happening on Steem yesterday that were a bit distracting!

I will be getting back to this shortly.

Indeed I noticed. What's your opinion on current issue @pennsif

Witnesses and Justin exchanged blows. I wonder if witnesses will use their opportunity (since they clearly won this round of fight) to escalate conflict or will they try to re-start dialogue with Justin.

Any idea?
Yours, Piotr
