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.

Finish the Story Contest is run by @f3nix via the @bananafish account which now hosts the contest which runs every Wednesday. He posts the beginning of a story, and you finish it. Then you post your complete story for everyone to read. One of the prizes is SBI shares. The important thing to know about this contest is that it's an ongoing creativity workshop, so if you miss one deadline you can participate in the next.

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

It runs weekly on Mondays and asks that you find two "High Quality Original Content Blog Posts" to recommend for curation.

Punday Monday

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.

Come help tell the adventures of Captain K, a fictional character with a quite a history! To enter, read the current post and previous stories, then write your own version of what “piratey” things he gets up to next.

What does today mean to you?

Here’s the description from the contest creator:

This is a weekly contests to giveaway SBI shares to the winner(s) - the best "one out of six" from "qualified #ccc entries"

The theme of your post-entry is to -

  • present a personal story,
  • illustrated with at least one relevant photograph taken by you, the contestant,
  • about the day or the days surrounding it.

It is set to be a weekly contest on Wednesdays, although, on some special occasions, it will be pre-announced due to a special day such as a holiday.
So, far, this contest has inspired some wonderful memories in these entries.

Steemexplorer’s Daily


@steemexplorers is an account aimed at achieving growth through helping others find resources and network with other community members in an effort to improve user experiences and overall knowledge of the Steem platform. The @steemexplorers daily contests as of now require either an upvote on the daily post OR a comment to be submitted in which the applicant provides something that they have learned about the Steem platform or services on the Steem Blockchain that they find useful and can be beneficial to others.

A winner is selected at random from each daily contest and a share awarded to the respective winner with a results post showing the wallet transaction from @steemexplorers to @steembasicincome sponsoring the winner which can then be verified by anyone who's interested in confirming our giveaways.

The comments that people can leave to gain entry can be anything useful, as little as teaching something helpful with markdown format, their thoughts on certain upvote services or apps like partiko for example, things like @dustsweeper or whatever else they can think of that helps

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 shares 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.

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

Instead of trying to be thoroughly comprehensive (and then end up not publishing) like we have before, we have only included the most recent contests (skipping duplicates). If we missed yours, feel free to share it in the comments for our readers to find, and to stop by our Discord server to post it in the contests channel.


If you want to get involved, or to increase the share of 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.

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.
