a) Commitment to the Hive ecosystem.

b) Quality of your post and comments.
What is the qualify of your post and comments? The number of upvotes, re-blogs and comments you have received before the announcement of the winners.

c) Regularity of Participation.
The regularity of your participation in our contests.

If you are one of, say, 3 potential winners, and if you stand out from the others in the above factors you will stand a better chance to win than the other two.

Guide To The Use Of Images (Optional).

If it is your own image, and do not wish to share it with others, use the subscript ©Your Name below the image.

If you have your own image and wish to share it with others on specific terms, then one way to do it would be to use the licenses offered by Creative Commons here. Try it. When you use Creative Common Licenses with attribution and links back to your original posts/images on Hive, it will give your posts more eyeballs, when others use your images in their posts!

If you wish to waive all your rights to your own image worldwide i.e. make it a public domain license, then you may use the CC0 license offered by Creative Commons here.

Third party images must carry a sub-script below them, showing details of attribution, copyright information, license details or any other details required by the license.

If you are using a third party image licensed to you, the details of the subscript would depend on the requirements of the license. Please make sure that your subscript complies with all these requirements. The subscript should also include a link to the original source of the image, where the details of the licensor and the license can be verified.

Stock image companies usually do not ask for attribution in any form when you are using their licensed images. Nevertheless, for this contest, you are required to provide a subscript with details of attribution. Such a practice removes any doubt as to whether you have a license to use the image and is, imho, reflective of professional conduct.

Example of images with attribution details in a subscript are shown below for your guidance.

  5. Concept of copyright infringement. Kinds of piracy — Stock Illustration by enotmaks of Depositphotos (Note: use this subscript if a description of the image is required)

Please note that Google images, news sites, blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and (most images on) social media sites are secondary sources of images. If you are using these images, you should endeavour to find the original source and check to see whether you have the license to use it and use it only if you have the license to use them. Avoid using such images if you can't find the original image or if you don't understand.

Do not edit copyrighted images on image editing software like Canva and use them unless you have the license to use the image and the license specifically allows you to do so.

An example of a license allowing you to do so is seen under CC BY-NC 2.0 license. This license specifically allows you to adapt (i.e. remix, transform, and build upon the material used) the image. For an example of such usage, see the the first example above.

The CC BY-NC 2.0 license also requires you to indicate if changes have been made to the image when using it. For an example of such usage, look up the second image of this post in Sportstalksocial.

Results of DIY Project: Contest No. 1.

No one qualified to win prizes under Contest No.1 and the prizes have been carried forward and compounded with Contest No. 2.


I would love to participate, but the only social media platform I am involved with is the splendid #hive platform.


I will consider making it optional, if not for this contest, at least for the future contests. Let me think about it.

I included that to give exposure to your post and Hive.

Perhaps you should consider having another social media account outside of Hive, for promotion of your posts and Hive.


I'm very happy with the platform I'm involved with now and the other ones you mentioned I have no interest in at all, especially Facebook and Twitter. Thanks for your suggestions, but the time I have to engage with folks will continue to be on #hive.
Have a wonderful day.


I am delighted to hear that you have no interest at all in the other social media platforms. I hope there are many more people like you.

To cater to such people, I have made the rule optional.
