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.


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.


The FreeWrite House We-Writes kick it off every Monday with a new prompt. Just complete the story with a five minute free write (or longer if you choose) and you could win 5 SBI shares.

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.

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.

Lyric Poetry Contest

With the contest using the prompt, the poet will show with his verbal expression illustrate a deep feeling, a reflection, a state of the spirit, as experiential and aesthetic manifestations.

Wednesday Walk

Wednesday Walk

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of and share a post on a Wednesday with the #wednesdaywalk tag for a chance to receive SBI.

Pirate Sunday

ZapFic Writing Contest

@phortun´s Monday tipping contest

Weekly guessing game: guess the price of Steem in seven days and win 5 SBI



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. It runs twice monthly, once in English and once in Spanish.


It’s baaaack…

Finish the Story Contest was founded by @f3nix and is run by him and the Bananafish Paladins via the @bananafish account which now hosts the contest that runs every Friday. 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 units. 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.

    @steembasicincome, thanks for the heads up on each of these quality contests but I think ya’all missed one. Simple mistake, I’m sure, certainly nobody fell asleep behind the wheel. 😴 <— don’t make me tag #satire!

    The folks over at @foodfightfriday have been hosting a weekly, anything #food goes, sloppy and, downright messy, competition for 69 weeks and I’m not just making that number up because it’s over 18 one number before 70. 🤔

    They’ve been dishing out @sbi shares from their own pocket since their creation including This Week’s Competition with a total of 21 shares up for grabs.

    Your consideration adding their initiative to your competitions list would be much appreciated. Thanks a lot for the opportunity you guys—happy #fff.
