Photography Lovers End of Year Contest


@derangedvisions here, and it is about time we have another contest here in the amazing Photography Lovers Community. We have had a great year here on Hive and here in the Photography Lovers Community. We are one of the largest communities on the Hive Blockchain and one of the go to communities for all of the photographers to share their work.

This contest will be a bit different than all of the previous contests I have hosted. 2021 has been an interesting year to say the least. We are all still dealing with the worldwide pandemic, but despite all of that, so many of you here on Hive has still managed to go out and capture some amazing photos. So I want to host a contest that allows you to gather your favorite shots from this year and share them with everyone.

Your entry for this contest should be filled with your favorite images and at least one short paragraph for each photo talking about what makes that photo your favorite. My team and I are not necessarily going to be looking for your best work, but more of what makes the photos your favorite, so it is going to be important for you to actually talk about your photographs. Anyone can just dump a bunch of their images into a post and call it good, but we want to know about each photograph.

You will need at least 3 images in your post for it to be valid. We will not be looking for single image posts, so don't waste your time trying to enter a post with just one image. Take your time to make your entry as good as possible, because once the contest is over, we will choose our top three posts and showcase them and the winners will get the post rewards from the announcement post. We will also be curating the entries that we feel deserve some extra rewards as well. So put some effort into your posts and don't just rush to get something in for the contest because not every entry will be curated.

Here is the list of rules that need to be followed for your post to be considered:


  1. One entry per person. You get one shot, so make it count.
  2. Your post must be made in the Photography Lovers Community and the title of your post should be "Photography Lovers End of Year Contest"
  3. You need at least three photos and at least one paragraph per photo talking about the images. The more images, the better though. I am sure you got more than three awesome photos this year.
  4. Your photos need to have been taken during 2021. No sharing your old vacation photos from the 1900s.
  5. Photos must have been taken by you. If you steal someone else's work, you will be downvoted and muted in the community.
  6. Contest will run until the end of 2021 and winners will be chosen shortly after the New Year.
  7. You MUST comment on this post with your post link and at least one of your images. Failure to do so will most likely mean your post will not be a valid entry.
  8. Post must be written in English. It is easiest for the judges to not have to translate anything when going through posts.

Things to remember:

Not every post will be curated.
If you do not follow the rules, your post will be ignored.
Your post quality will go a long way with this contest. So take some time and put some effort into your post. We won't necessarily be choosing the most amazing photography to win the contest. If your post is interesting and entertaining, you have a great chance of doing good in this contest compared to someone that puts in minimal effort with great photos.

Once your post is complete, make sure to check back on this post and be sure you have followed all of the rules. Failure to follow the rules will mean your post will most likely be skipped. I can't stress this enough. It just makes the contest run a lot smoother for everyone.

We are looking forward to seeing your entries!


This is my entry to the contest. It was also the reality for a lot of people in British Columbia in the past five years.

These are some of the photographs I took in July and August of 2021 during the peak of the wildfire season.

This is my entry. How quiet my city was during sometime of this year under the social distance due to the pandemic.


Better late then never. Even though 2021 was not the year in where I accelerated in photography terms.


Wishing you Happy Holidays

Being about our year, about how my year was, resulted in a perhaps too personal post. I hope it's not boring! It has helped me remember many moments from the year that is now ending, my photographic memory is much better than my internal memory.

Excellent initiative, reminiscent of the year-end summing up
But what if your favorite photos have already been published on the site? Can they be applied for this competition or is it necessary to have something previously unpublished?

That is fine. Just be sure to include some descriptions and stuff about your photos.

Yes, sure🖐️ 😊

How fun! What a smart way to make a visual time capsule for the 2021 year.

Excellent, I will participate to share all my progress in photography this year, thank you for this initiative for all !

The first harvest of my father's sideburns, it was a moment of joy to see the fruit of what is sown.

Hi one question please
Should the photos be "new" or out of the postings from 2021?

The best shots of 2021.... with at least 3 and good info and description on what the images are all about.

Thank you for the reply :-) I will look what photos I find
