Contest Directions: Long before Photoshop, in the beginning of the 20th century, photographer from Kansas William 'Dad' Martin started creating photo montages of his photos and sold them as postcards. Martin used just photo prints, scissors, glue, and pencil to create realistically looking photo hoaxes for his postcards, and they sold like hotcakes. During 1903-1909, Martin's photography company, which originally had just 5 people, and was located on a quiet street in Kansas, sold more photo postcards than most famous photo studios in New York.
Take any vintage photo (up to 1950) and photoshop it any way you like (keeping a vintage feel to it). It's OK to add any modern objects and characters to vintage photos, as long as you keep the original vintage style of the photo.
