Two contests in one week

I followed the suggestion of @kohsamui99 and will handle both photography contests simultaneously given we missed one week recently.

The usual rules

Please create a post using the tag SunThursday showing your own original photography or video work covering the sun or write about positivity which I link to the sun which enabled and maintains the possibility of life in general. The three best submissions will receive a Hive prize and a vote prize.

  • Post photography, video or written content covering the topic SUN
  • Use the tag #SunThursday as your first tag
  • Add link to your submission in the comments on THIS post
  • Consider to "vote&reblog" this post to spread the contest (not mandatory but it might help)
  • Only original (your own) content will qualify
  • GOOD LUCK!
  • Contest submissions will need to be made until September 7, 10am CET to make sure we have enough time to select the winner
  • Decision on the winner will hopefully be made by @tinman88 - the winner of the previous Sun Thursday contest. Please let me know if you are happy to judge (please note: you can not attend this time then) or not.

We would need to have the decision by September 7, 11am CET if at possible this time to ensure the votes will be given as part of the prize.

What to win (contest will be handled every two weeks)

This is a fun contest where I still am searching for sponsors - for now the following rewards will be paid to the three winners:

1. Prize: 3 Hive
2. Prize: 2 Hive
3. Prize: 1 Hive

PLUS - all three will receive a little UPVOTE by @theycallmedan - thanks for supporting this!

Many THANKS again to the sponsors

We have some great Hive users that sent me some Hive to support the winning three entries.

@dswigle - a lovely lady from the US that I know since times way before the Steem blockchain was invented - she generously sponsored at least 100 Hive from her own pockets in the meantime

@ervin-lemark - one of the legends on the blockchain, here since I can think of blockchain also sponsored over 20 Hive

@theycallmedan - I am sure all of you know this Hive supporter and promoter - he will vote the three winning posts moving forward.

Always open for community sponsors

Please comment or DM me if you want to support great photography content creators. Ideally a community or whales joins the party so we do not get stuck with small user pocket money only :-).

Hey, @uwelang, I'm glad you managed to find some time for your sunny contests.
It's getting harder and harder for me to keep up with the "competition", but, as an old man I am, I don't give up ... I will die slowly, with one last look at the horizon!

Finally, I see the horizon!
