WINNERS OF THE PREVIOUS CONTEST

The topic of the previous contest was "3 places in your town that you recommend visiting!" I am super happy that some of the articles that participated in the contest were of very high quality. The prize pool was split among 15 authors who met all the requirements. As it took me a while to make this announcement, to make it up for any inconveniences I increased the prize pool by 50% from 100HBD to 150HBD.

Rewards were distributed using a very simple point system. All articles that met the criteria got from 5 to 10 points. To support quality over quantity TOP4 authors were given 10 points extra. Extra points were also given for enhancing posts with one or more of elements mentioned above (Youtube videos, Google maps, Instagram posts, etc.)

The total number of points happened to be 165. It means that 1 point = 0.909 HBD. For example, TOP4 authors got 20 points each so all of them received 20*0.909=18.18 HBD. Most likely a similar rewards distribution technique will continue to be used in the future.

Congratulations to TOP7 authors: @bluemoon (18,18HBD), @olga.maslievich (18,18HBD), @junebride (18,18HBD), @taco.cat (18,18HBD), @marcybetancourt (8,18HBD), @irisworld (8,18HBD) and @engrsayful (8,18HBD). As my grandpa used to say, keep up the good work! :D

Other participants that got rewarded: @kneelyrac, @shemzy, @sahiba-rana, @travelporn@laxyasaru@putu300@tariqul.bibm. Thank you all. I hope you will have time to participate in this contest too!
