in Feel Good2 years ago (edited)


Hello World!

This is the 55th Edition of the PhotoChain challenge. The PhotoChain Challenge is a blockchain-like photography contest. If you would like to know more about, read the PhotoChain Challenge INTRODUCTION Post on HIVE. There, I explain the functioning of the contest and how to participate. I changed the rules of the winner prize since the last edition.

In this post, I'll announce the 2 winners of the 54th Edition of the Contest. Within the next 48 hours, I'll reward both of them with 1 HIVE SBI - as explained in the rules - and will post in the comment section of the 54th EDITION the confirmation of transactions.

And the Winner is...

The 54th Edition counted 7 (Seven) valid participants...

The two Key-Subjects were:

Vintage and Fish

These are the 2 Winners of the 54th Edition:

Winner 1



with a fish-centered old stamp list

The personal subject is Stamp

Winner 2



with a beautiful and textured picture of a elongated fish

The personal subject is Stickers

As I promised, I will award the 2 winners with 1 HIVE token each, and I will award other 2 photos that I appreciated during the edition.

The first honorable mention:

And the second honorable mention:

Prize for the next edition: 2 HIVE, 1 each winner of the current edition; & 2 Hive SBI, 1 each honorable mention of the edition they joined.



This is for EVERYONE on the Hive platform.


No required UPVOTE, REHIVE, FOLLOW or BID to participate.

I explained in the Introduction Post that everyone can participate by submitting his/her own photo in the comment section. The photo must contain the 2 Key-Subjects that will be communicated in each post of the New Edition and another key-subject at your choice (contained in the photo). I also explained there how the key-subject will change and the criteria with which I'll choose them.

Are you Ready?


This week's edition is the:

55th Edition

The KEY-SUBJECTS for this week are:


Another week has passed. This week...mmm...maybe a letter picture could be ok, but with what level of creativity? And other interpretations? We'll see it again this time. I'll wait for you :)



- -- --- STEPS --- -- -


  • The photo that contains the two Key-Subjects;
  • A Comment with the two Key-Subjects + another subject of your choice contained in the photo. (If you posted the image in your blog, you can post the link to that page, but you must add your photo anyway in the comment)

2) ONLY IF YOU WANT: mention another person you think would like this challenge.


4) WAIT FOR THE NEXT WEEK: time limit fixed to 3 hours before the Post Payout

I'll write a post for the weekly edition start, and I'll announce the Winners of the Previous Week Edition. There I'll communicate the 2 Key-Subjects.

If you have any doubt, follow the practical example in the Introduction Post. Furthermore, I add a practical example in the comment section of the Zero Edition Post and you can consult the previous edition to know more about how can the comments be.


  • One entry each participant


  • The duration of the contest: 7 days, from the start announcement post to 3 hours before the Post Payout Time.

  • GIFs are allowed only 1) if the duration is less or equal to 10 seconds; and 2) if the key-subjects remain in the foreground for the whole duration of the GIF.

  • Editing is allowed, but not creations such as graphic design: this is a PHOTOGRAPHY contest.

  • Every Color Cover is allowed, including Black and White.

  • Every Theme is allowed: no censorship except for extremely explicit content. The nsfw contents are allowed, but I will not utilize the nsfw tag for the PhotoChain Post: so, if I choose a nsfw photo as a winner, I will not insert it as an image in the official post (only as a mention or a link to the original post)

  • IMPORTANT: I invited the participants to use fairly large categories as subjects so as not to sabotage participation. You haven't to use proper names (of cities, places, mountains, species, etc)
    For example:
    Don't utilize the subject snow bear but only animals; naturally I will give more importance to the photo of an animal that is not often photographed compared to a simple domestic cat.
    REMEMBER! The more general the category used as a subject, the greater the participation in the competition, the greater the prizes in the future.

  • Finally, I'll advance with the prizes awarding 2 days approx after the finish of the weekly challenge. I'll write the transaction ID in the winners' announcements post. Excuse me for the delay I sometimes encounter in the transactions.

Now it's your turn.


stamp and stickers? I have plenty of them!! :=)



those stickers my wife created for a certain fandome, I helped her with layout and technical / printing side. at one point we printed a pile of ythem, and were sending them out to the fandome members, to a list of subscribers. It was an interesting scheme: each fan had a lot of extra material on ... a certain topic (it's superfluous to mention here, never mind, I won't tell you). and everyone decided to arrange a mutual exchange "along the chain" - the mail blockchain. I love games like this! This is the second time I have taken part in a venture like this - the first time, in the 2000s, we changed in a similar way the the anime of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli (a HD has being sent along that time).

So, the bottom line is this: everyone has something superfluous, of which he has a lot. One person "started the blockchain" - put his stuff (postcards, tickets, papers, photos ... miscellaneous) into an envelope. And sent to the next one. The second person received, unpacked, took what he enjoyed most and in his turn added his stuff in an envelope - and sent it further. This is how the blockchain turned out: a "mutual enrichment". There was a big element of surprise in this - in fact, it is the most important thing, more important than owning some old dusty papers. Emotions. The joy of learning new things. The joy of receiving and opening a gift ... We made a bunch of stickers with deer (like "emoji") specially for this occasion, the deer have different grimaces. Something like that. So I wanted to choose the word "Russian" first, but I suspect it will be difficult for many ... and I choose the personal keyword "grin".

Это была интересная схема: каждый фэн имел много материала, посвященного... определенной теме (это лишнее здесь упоминать, неважно, я не скажу вам). и все решили устроить взаимный обмен "по цепочке" - почтовая блокчейн. Я люблю такие игры! Это уже второй раз когда я принимаю участие в чем-то подобном - в первый раз, в 2000-к годы, мы менялись похожим образом аниме Хаяо Миядзаки и студии Гибли.

Итак, суть вот в чем: каждый имеет что-то лишнее, чего у него много. Один человек "стартовал блокчейн" - положил в конверт свой матерьял (открытки, билеты, бумаги, фотографии... разное). И послал следующему. Второй человек получил, распаковал, взял себе что ему понравилось и доложил в конверт свой материал - и послал дальше, третьему человеку. Так и получился блокчейн, "взаимное обогащение". В этом был большой элемент сюрприза - фактически, это самое главное, важнее, чем владеть какими-то старыми пыльными бумагами. Эмоции. Радость узнавания нового. Радость получения и открывания подарка... Мы сделали специально для этого случая кучу наклеек с оленями (типа "эмодзи"), олени имеют разные гримасы. Вот как-то так. Поэтому я хотел сначала выбрать слово "русский", но подозреваю для многих это будет трудно... и я выбираю личное ключевое слово "гримаса".

A great idea with the mail blockchain! I like it! Your deer are wonderful - their faces are so cute!

my wife is to blame for these deers -- I just helped with prepress!

My compliments to your wife! But that can also mean you carried the right direction 😁

Hi @qwerrie, loving those mail blockchain activities, so cool for you to have participated in the event. Grin means smiling widely right, that is easy to do as well, I like it. Good luck and have a pleasant day, cheers, ainie

not at all; grin is a crooked, "bad" smile when a person shows teeth, its a wicked smile, not a good wide smile :) smile of a happy villain, lets say it so.

What a nice entry Qwerrie. Welcome to this week edition. You deserve a !BEER for the long explanation text

Grazie Mille! I have a !BEER for your thirsty throat too :P

Hey @davidesimoncini, here is a little bit of BEER from @qwerrie for you. Enjoy it!

@Ainie.kashif nice Malaysian stamps. Never seen this stamp before. I used to collect stamps when I was younger. The fish stamp is beautiful. 👍

Thank you @elizacheng, these fish stamps are one of my favorites. Imagine stamp collections were famous those days and now as youngsters focus on new technologies, I guess it's not popular anymore. It becomes a thing in the past. Have A Nice Day! Cheers, ainie

Thanks for the honorable mention and for the @hsbi.@davidesimoncini
This next one has me a bit baffled at the moment!

To you :) No problem, you have much time to think about an entry ;)

I'm thinking! 😉

Congratulations to @ainie.kashif, @zoricatech, @qwerrie and @melinda010100 ! That was not an easy task but you did it!

Thank you so much @olgavita, lol that was so fun right, let's think for the next one. Have A Nice Day! cheers my friend, ainie

Oh, the next combination looks a hard nut to crack!

Hi @olgavita, ahh yes, really always loves the challenge right, it keeps our blogging so fun, cheers, ainie

the harder the challenge, the more intresting is the process... unless its a totally 'dead end', hehe. cheers! just posted added my entry this round.

Thanks @olgavita. The next one, Stickers and Stamps may be the hardest one yet for me!

For me too :-( Can get no idea at the moment.

Me either! I'll keep thinking. Good luck!

For you too 👍🤗

should I post something on your behalf? ;)
( just kidding! )

Thank you for pushing me 😉. Just posted mine 😁

Stickers and Stamps may be the hardest one yet for me!

oh, really?.. I have so much stickers to post... and I have envelopes with stamps... a huge pile of different cases to choose from. I know that youth generation (with their love and fondness of smartphones, instant messages etc) may do not have even a single envelope or paper letter sent/received, but we... we are a different case! how it can be that you dont have stamps or letters?!?!

I don't have anything with both stickers and also stamps. I may be sitting this one out!

you may put one above another, heh?..

Well, that's an idea!

I don’t know what to say, except thank you, @olgavita!

all the entries were nice! enough vintage and enough fishy :D

Comparto mi entrada



El uso de sellos pareciera haber quedado en desuso. Al menos en nuestra oficina, donde no pude encontrar sellos actualizados. Espero guste mi versión.

Third participant, nice! Welcome to this week edition Joslud :)

a nice entry. and a rare mechanical device! warmly welcome to the blockchain!

Oh yes @qwerrie, you are right, it is candle lol, you take care my friend, cheers, ainie

Hi everyone. La mia "appiccicosa" proposta ...

Bienvenido di nuovo Adinapoli. In bocca al lupo :)

Nice entry Isabel, welcome to the new edition :)

Thank you friend.

Thank you so much @davidesimoncini and congrats to all the winners @zoricatech, @qwerrie and @melinda010100. Wishing you all a pleasant day and please stay safe, cheers, ainie

Thanks and congrats to you! 🏆

To you dear :)

Thanks so much, @ainie.kashif! I really appreciate your well wishes and kind words!

After days of thinking and recollecting I found this photo of my son near a huge poster made of STICKERS. Some words on the "tree" can be also considered as STEMPS because they were produced using special STAMPS 😁. This is a decoration on the wall of a hall at one of schools.
So, my words are: STICKER - STAMP - WALL

I enjoy to see you again Olga. Good luck for the edition :)

Thank you! It is a pleasure to participate when the challenge is so intriguing 🙂

A nice b&w entry. Good luck :)

Congratulations to the winners and all the participants! Good luck!
