Another day to celebrate, everyday is a blessing but this one is quite different than the usual. Well, I'm really not into celebrating my birthday, there are times that I forget it but because of special people who keep on telling me my birthday is so close I was reminded of the day.
I want to host a contest to thank all of you for supporting me and to encourage everyone to write and express your thoughts. This is my first time hosting a contest so please understand if I'll make an unclear remarks haha you can ask question on the comment section.
Have you watch the movie "The Space Between Us"? It's a movie about a boy who was born in Mars because his mom is an astronaut. He live all his life there and when he came back to earth he then searched for his dad. This is a romance movie and I'm not here to give a review so watch the movie if you want to know what happened haha. Why am I telling you this? In the movie, he asked his lover "what's your favorite thing about earth?" And that question keeps lingering on my mind. So, I'm basing my contest to this question.
Answer the question "what's your favorite thing about earth?" through publishing an article, it may be through photography, essay, digital arts, and poems. Since we have a lot of users with diverse forte I decided to include four categories.
(a) Photography - publish an article with 3 photos, this may include different photos with same message that will convey your answer. Include a short description.
(b) Essay - this should be a descriptive essay, include your reason why it's your favorite thing on earth. Write at least 200-400 words , I want to promote a short but interesting writings.
(c) Digital Arts - you can submit 1-2 digital art in one article connecting the two arts giving us your answer. Include a short description.
(d) Poems - for those poet who wants to join this contest, publish your poem about the topic with at least 2-4 stanzas with 4 lines each stanza.
You can submit a maximum of 2 entries but with different category.
Be creative and create your own title. At the end of your article include the question "How about you, what's your favorite thing about earth?". Also, include the link of this contest, and mention me so I'll be notified. No need to have a short post about this but it's okay if you'll do.
