It is 2021 and we are bringing back PhotoGames!
What are PhotoGames?
Fun, interactive, photographic games for the whole HIVE community.
"A little bit of sport and a whole lot of community"
PhotoGames was created one evening in January 2018 by 3 photographers, @jarvie, @derekkind and @caseygrimley, while discussing blockchain posting ideas including how to get the photography community closer together. @Jarvie suggested doing an ongoing series of Photography Games every week.
The first season was a great success! It happened from February- March 2018 and had over 75 participants.
The start of Season 3 brings us to the present day.
- A PhotoGames Community
- Community badges
- PhotoGames group and community wide chat
- Curated Collections to organize active games
- Preferred topics to organize all community posts.
- A reward pool for the games
- A required beneficiary to that pool
- Public access game post templates
Season 3 will start on May 17, 2021 and run for 8 weeks. There will be 4 photo stars each week hosting 3-4 games a piece for everyone play for fun and a spot on the leaderboard.
Each week a group of 4 photographers called PhotoStars choose 3-4 games to host and judge during that week.
Types of Games
You do not need to be a photographer to play. There are tons of unique games which rotate all the time. Each game lets ALL OF YOU interact.
Gameplay is usually based on one of the following:
Creative commentary tasks
Usage of your photo skills
Knowledge of photography
Posting your own pictures
Some of these games require no photo skills, just an appreciation of photography. Others will greatly benefit the best photographers out there. It really is a game for the whole Hive community.
