March Art Madness | Promote Steemit on Social Media | $500+ Prize Pool

in art •  7 months ago

During the classic Renaissance period, creatives, in combination with the entrepreneurial doers they associated with, played a key role to make incredible advances. But, how often, in the modern world—due to pressures such as the bottom line—have institutions completely missed such opportunity to benefit society. Recurrently, people lost the benefits that visionaries’ could have provided. And artists’ works only generated substantial earnings, long after the creatives themselves passed away?

Blockchain technology and decentralization provide a "Renaissance" like opportunity today. The Steemit platform has the potential to revolutionize how creativity and innovation serve the world for good. In harmony with our concepts here at State of the Arts, we seek to further harness Steemit's potential for all.

Without further adieu we introduce our March-Art Madness. On top of what Steemit already distributes for successful entry posts, we sweeten the pot with an additional $500 prize pool. We do this as an incentive to promote and build the community on Steemit as well as have a fun contest. For the external communities outside of Steemit, they learn of the potential here and they see what people are ACTUALLY accomplishing already.






HOW TO PARTICIPATE

(Also, make sure you're following @stateofthearts)

  • First of all, "like", comment, and resteem this post
  • Then, with any form of art (video, performance, multimedia, photography, music, design, etc.) use the tag #stateofthearts, and simply attach your art to a comment below on this thread feed @stateofthearts. All submissions for the incentive will be chosen from art on #stateofthearts curation trail and attached below to this thread feed here at @stateofthearts.

Finally, in order to be considered for placing in the top ten, you MUST do the following during the month of March

  • Share this post and talk about (promote) steemit and/or use your art (by doing something creative with it) to promote steemit on at least one form of social media (instagram/twitter/facebook/etsy/youtube etc)
  • Then (at some point before deadline) post a "Reply" to your art below and provide a link showing you shared this post on at least one other social media platform
  • Your substantive comments, up-votes, and activity on @stateofthearts won't hurt either

$500+ Prize Pool

Again, on top of what Steemit already offers, we sweeten the pot with an additional $500 into the prize pool! Also 50% of all Steem Dollars earned on all March-Art Madness posts this month will be added to the prize pool! (50% goes to steemcash, 50% to steempower for promotions). From that, here is the contest specific breakdown.

  • 1st place $200 (+50% of those Steem Dollars)
  • 2nd Place $100 (+25% of those Steem Dollars)
  • 3-10th Place $25 (+25% of those Steem Dollars)

What Are We Looking For


Top 10 will be chosen based off creativity, craft, activity in the community, support of other artists, and dedication to spreading the Steemit platform.

  • PROMOTE STEEMIT! Simple as that!
  • Not required, but for bonus points, come up with a way to use your creativity within your artwork/performance/video/etc. to help promote steemit in some form!

We will be very active on the feed, be active as well! Comment on your fellow artists posts, be engaged, encourage and uplift the community. We as early adopters will create the greatest decentralized artist community on social media!


Winners will be announced at the end of March. We will feature, resteem, and upvote contestants all month long. Have fun and help art followers, creative communities, and entrepreneurial doers--people involved in every art form--learn about the power of Steemit! (video, performance, multimedia, photography, music, design, etc.).

wow great contest

Today is my first day here, only 3hours in and I'm already hooked!
Facebook can suck on a sweaty ballsack, because it's one thing to share your intellectual property for 'likes' and a completely different ballgame to do it in a way that empowers you and others. This place is awesome, and i'm excited to be here. Lets take back the internet and next the world!!!! Muahahahaha! X3

Now in the process of selecting finalists, see March Art Madness link below for tips and details.

·

Genius for you to get off and running like this.

If you wish, you can post more entries (limit 10) during the month if you wish to work on them. Now, at some point when you're ready, remember to provide a link here to at least one centralized social media platform where you promoted steemit.

You may even use your image to do it. For instance, that story related to this pic is great--as it ties back to steemit in an interesting way. Awesome start.

I created a post giving the extended back story of my piece and shared it to an art group I'm a member of on fb. I hope this works :)

@stateofthearts Rainbows and barn owls. Old work but this piece is what pushed my career in the right direction. Also made a timelapse video of it's creation but not sure how to share it here. This would be my first contest on Steemit #stateoftheartsphotostudio_1520076926594.jpg

·

excelente trabajo hombre, eres un genio

·
·
·

Very interesting and beautiful work and entry. @jonatftforest, if you want to post the timelapse video to your site, we'll resteem it here on the stateofthearts feed for March Art Madness.

·
·

Thank you, do I upload it directly or can I share from my YouTube? Still figuring things out here

·
·
·

Probably several ways to do it. If you haven't done it already, load it directly to @jonatftforest. They can resteem from there. How about that?

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Yes, that would work. Load it directly to @jonatftforest (we didn't find it on your site yet). Tag it with stateofthearts. We can resteem from there. That should do the trick. You can also provide a link to youtube here/there if you want to. That way you can cross-connect media for added exposure.

·
·
·
·

@stateofthearts thanks again, here's the YouTube link. Can upload the video directly when I get home. Will make sure to tag.

·
·
·
·
·

sinceramente tienes mi voto

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Now just remember to add something over there on at least one centralized platform (like YouTube) which helps people learn of and promotes about steemit. And you'll be well on your way.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I can do that, sharing this post amongst my chainsaw artist friends on Facebook will work, correct?

the work is beautiful and very professioanl, im glad for that sucess , could you tell me the secret of all thoese upvots thats really impressive , im having a hard start i need some encouragment and i belive in this beautiful community

·

@fedismaoui, I'm not sure I have the best answer for you pertaining to this particular question.

But, I do know that it takes an investment of steempower now and then to promote a post when you determine that it needs to receive broader exposure.

At least in part, I think that's key to your question, "could you tell me the secret of all those upvots". We're certainly still learning here too.

I like this contest idea I hope there will be many participants maybe I can find something to do myself.

·

We can't wait to see what people come up with to promote steemit to the outside.

Well, it doesn't promote Steemit in anyway but I still wanted to have something to offer. I hope to be able to create something in the near future that meets the contest expectations.

·

sigo opinando que se ve sexy

·

Beautiful drawing @ryunamist. Maybe when you post it to a centralized platform, you can say something like, "Do you feel chained to..." When you get to that point, be sure and add a reply to your entry that shows what you did. You can also provide a link there for inviting friends and followers to try to to support your contest efforts here on steemit.

·
·

Yep, that's a good idea. Thank you :)

You got a 20.37% upvote from @allaz courtesy of @stateofthearts!

good post, and you deserve the dream you want, sorry, I'm new in steemit, will you help me?

·

Looks like you're off to a good start @fatemah. Continue making posts and you should be well on your way. What do you think you need help with?

@stateofthearts. This is the photo of the sunset view that I took through my own hp camera.
and i use hp samsung galaxy note 3 neo.
and I think my picture is worth to be reckoned with in this artwork.
Because my photo is like a photo of a reliable potographer.
and this is the most beautiful sunset view ever captured by the hp camera. #stateoftheart

·

That will work @cekmail. Love the movement and the colors. We're going to rotate the image so it appears horizontal in our feed.

There, how's that?

·
·

wow .. very beautiful and interesting.
Sorry if I forgot to give the photo in a horizontal position.
Thank's

·

And, don't forget to resteem this March Art Madness announcement post to your feed.

·

LOL! Oh, that will work @jerrybanfield (to say the least); to qualify you for the initiative.

Great idea! I would like to ask if it has to be a new work? and if it is okay if the work is published on other social media before?

·

It doesn't have to be new work. The idea is to use something (even existing work), in some way, to promote steemit. That's a key.

·
·

gracias por el consejo

·
·
·

👍 !Como no!

·
·

Thank you for you fast reply.

Am In for this

IMG-20180118-WA0006.jpg

I promoted steemit on Facebook this is the link to the post I did
https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1960323024232604&id=1958041244460782

Screenshot_20180305-052640.png

In the promotion I had 1.8likes, 1 comment and 1 share. I had a total reach of 5476.

Am still working on YouTube promotion, hope get it done soon. Thanks

·

Looking good. Just remember to resteem the announcement to your feed and link to a/the promotional post(s) you do outside of steemit.

·
·

Please check, I have done it

·
·
·

👍 We see the resteem and look forward to your link to an outside social network.

·

👍 Nice promotion.

·

That will do the trick. We see you've resteemed this announcement too, so just remember to add at least one link at some point when you've promoted outside of steemit.

I am actually working on a video game project, a 2d platformer to promote Steemit a bit and i'm in charge of all the art of the game ! here is my submission then :

·

muy bueno, creo que estaras en los 10 mejores

·

Right on target, @imaginalex!!! This is what mean when we talk about the innate potential of creatives to make things happen in the world--no question that this promotes an awareness of steemit.

Just add a link or add multiple links when you've promoted to at least one form of centralized media. We see you resteemed this March Art Madness announcement, so you're well on your way!

You are so awesome. I heard Your name everywhere. Most handsome person I have ever seen

·

Ahhh shucks.....?

@stateoftheart this was actually one of ny entries for steemit open mic I hope you appreciate the work I put in #stateoftheart
.....

·

That will work for starters. Now, remember to resteem this announcement; and think of a way to tie in a steemit promotion, if you can @skiwzz.

@stateoftheart this was actually one of ny entries for steemit open mic I hope you appreciate the work I put in #stateoftheart
.....

Thank you for holding this contest!
First of all, I would like to ask how many entries are allowed? Second, are traditional drawings also welcome?

·

Our pleasure. In line with our concepts, we believe steemit has the potential to do great things for society where the arts are concerned. Now concerning contest specifics, the answer is "yes"; traditional drawings are more than welcome (kind of at our core).

In terms of numbers of pieces, we haven't really set a limit. On first thought, anywhere from 1-10 entries would not be excessive. Beyond that, the artist should probably save work for future incentives.

As far as the question about art forms, we make an effort to consider a variety of art types from kids and sketch to production work. Our primary category for winners is creativity. We'll seek for variety. In the case of this incentive, (not required but bonus points are achieved) we will definitely look for at least one winner who finds a way to somehow promote steemit within their artistic work.

Does that help answer this particular inquiry @ryunamist?

·
·

It does. A lot. Thank you! I mostly do anime style drawing but I would be glad to experiment with more. Hope I can finish my pieces and submit here. See you soon!

·
·
·

Anime would work well--especially if you come up with some way to incorporate promoting steemit within the work. You've got a month (final deadline is the 30th), but may want to post while there's still at least a week remaining in order to receive up-votes.

·
·
·
·

Ok. Thank you for the info and the advice :)

this is something i did on photoshop follow me @headspace21

Can have numerous entries if you like. 10's the limit we established.

Great contest indeed. Getting ready my entry.

·

Wonderful. Looking forward to it as us early adopters seek to do our part to help make steemit the greatest decentralized social media platform.

This is such an exciting project! I love it! I've been saying this for years that humanity was due for another Renaissance. I truly believe that our creativity is the 'spark' that keeps joy alive in this world. We must keep inspiration alive through our creative expression. Thank you for organizing such a wonderful contribution to lighting that spark in others.

·

Certainly hope--and look forward to discussing--more along this line of thinking with you @youhavewings; and to compare notes. Great insights right in line with our focus.

What a fantastic initiative, I love it and would be proud to be part of it. I already follow you and have upvoted and resteemed this post. Plus I have shared this post to very nearly 7000 people on Twitter. You can check this by looking at my twitter feed which is @Reptoid_Hunter

Further to this, when I create videos now I put a graphic on which states my steemit address in the hope to bring attention to steemit for those who have not heard of it.

Oh and may I share with you my latest time lapse painting video?
