Check out these recurring contests too!

Quite a few industrious Steemians run contests regularly. Here is a list of the ones we know about at the moment. All of these have been running for months so you can count on their posted schedule.

Be sure to check each account and look for the contest name as the links change each week. Also remember to read the full contest description as the rules and prize values sometimes change.

@freewritehouse

The folks over at @freewritehouse run three contests each week. All of them are designed to encourage community engagement and highlight other's work. Besides the prizes from the @freewritehouse account, they are always interested in hearing from anyone who will sponsor a contest and so they can offer even bigger prizes.

Favorite Freewrite

A Favorite Freewrite You Read contest runs every Tuesday for just 24 hours. You need to read some freewrites written (you can read this post to see what they are), and then comment on the contest posts about which ones you liked best and why. If they choose your comment you win units of SBI.

Favorite Freewrite Poem

Recommend your Favorite Freewrite Poem is a poetry version of the Favorite Freewrite contest and it runs every Friday. Make a comment about a freewrite poem you loved and you could win SBI units. But be quick! When Friday is over, so is the contest - until the next week that is.

We Write

We-Write is a new challenge where two writers create a single story using the freewrite prompt. It runs every other Wednesday with a prize of 10 SBI divided among winners.

@bananafish

https://steemit.com/@bananafish

Mizu No Oto is founded on the belief that every image has a haiku. It’s an @bananafish contest curated by @marcoriccardi, a real haijin (haiku poet) and it's a great occasion to learn this form of poetry.

Paying it Forward

https://steemit.com/@pifc

In the spirit of helping new Steemians, this contest focuses on curating great content and is run by @pifc. It runs weekly on Mondays and asks that you find two "High Quality Original Content Blog Posts" to recommend for curation. Four judges decide which recommendations were the best and multiple winners get SBI units. Follow @pifc to see the latest contest post and read it for full details.

ZapFic Writing Contest

Zapfic

Like super short stories? Try writing one in 232 characters or fewer for your chance to win SBI in this contest run by @felt.buzz. Every Wednesday he posts a new prompt to use for your very short story. You can post your story wherever you want, just make sure to keep it under 232 characters.

Caption Contest

Help celebrate digital art by creating creative captions for the week’s selected picture. Read all the rules carefully to be sure your entry qualifies for the SBI prizes.

Thank you economy

Imgur

Every week you can visit the Thank You Economy contest and tag someone who has helped you. When you do, both of you could win SBI units from the ever growing prize pool!

Punday Monday

https://steemit.com/@improv

From the creator:

What is Punday?
Punday is the best day. It's the day we post a topic upon which you are invited to pun in the comments for a chance at SBI shares. You get to read all the incredible puns, and you can try your hand at puns, and you can just bask in the warmth and love that punsters offer. I am your Puntender, and I serve hot puncakes with Mapun Syrpun.

Loyal Reader Rewards

A.E. Jackson writes short stories, interactive fiction, and informative articles which are published on Steemit.com. As a new writer, it is important to build a loyal following, and get feedback from readers. The Loyal Reader Rewards Contest was created with those goals in mind.

Loyal Readers can earn entries into a Steemit Basic Income random draw each week by reading posts, and following the directions to enter. The entry form requires more information than many Steemians are comfortable with providing, so enter at your own discretion.

Steemexplorer’s Daily

@steemexplorers is a project operated by @jonnyla08 and the “Monsters Madness Giveaways” team which aims to consistently help others find resources to improve their Steemit user experiences, network with other community members and achieving personal growth. We hope to be a central source of information and guidance for all Steemians. Steemexplorers has some exciting projects in the works. Presently while we work through these projects we conduct FREE daily giveaways of SBI shares among other things throughout the other members of our team. Please see the instructions in our daily giveaways for more information on how to participate.

Track of the Day

This is how it ROLLS... Share a link to the track that is "doing it for you" today in the comments and you are done! I will choose the three I like the most and they get 1 SBI share each - others may receive upvotes if they don't make it into my "top 3". - AND GO....!!!!

How to get on the recurring contest list

Do you run a regular contest that you’d like to see in our recurring contest section? We have some simple criteria you need to have to be included:

  • SBI units must be part of the prizes given out.
  • Contest needs to be running 5 weeks or 10 contests on a consistent schedule, whichever comes first.
  • Meet Contest King’s no upvote, no resteem, and no follow conditions.

If you think your contest qualifies let us know in the comments or on our Discord channel and we’ll check it out.

Writer Bio

This Contest listing was prepared for us by @ntowl!

@ntowl is a freelance copywriter who plans on being a best-selling author. Her writing is all over the web, but most of it belongs to other people who paid her to write it. Follow her on Steemit for writing advice and encouragement.

Sustainability Coverage

Sustainability Coverage is currently at 78.19% and rshares reward rate is 617,685,810 per SBI unit per day. In a 50/50 curation environement, we expect a swift increase in our sustainability coverage, resulting in members earning rshares for their upvote balance at a much faster rate (offsetting most or all of the author reward reduction from 75% to 50%).

You can help increase the sustainability coverage (and the rshares reward rate on regular units) by delegating to @steembasicincome or by regularly upvoting our updates and upvote reports.
For more information, please read Into the Heart of Sustainability.

Enrollment

If you want to get involved, or to increase the basic income that you receive, enrollment is pretty straightforward:

Just send 1 STEEM to @steembasicincome. Include the name of a Steemian to sponsor in the transaction memo (preceded by @). You and the person you sponsor will each receive 1 unit in the program. You can sponsor any active Steemian, it does not have to be a current member.

If you're unclear, please check out our full transaction memo guidelines and then let us know if you have any questions.
https://steemit.com/busy/@steembasicincome/transaction-memo-guidelines

The official currency for enrollment is STEEM. If we choose to accept SBD without refunding it, you do not receive extra value for it.

Enrollments are processed automatically every 144 minutes. Confirmation transactions are still manual and typically are sent within 2-3 days. Even if you have not received a welcome transaction, you can check your status using !sbi status.

Questions?

Please read our FAQ, which has a wealth of quality information. If you still have questions, ask in the comments section or join us in our discord channel.
