Bad Christmas Gifts
19 entries - contest ended 12/14/2014

Bad Christmas gifts are something we all have received at one time or another. Maybe it was a pair of hand knitted socks from your Aunt Gladys or a battery powered lock de-icer from your 31 year old son. Whatever it was, we all remember them.
Show us what Christmas gifts can be useless, plain silly, or even dangerous. Many thanks to Gamecock for the themepost.

Barcode It!
24 entries - contest ended 12/13/2014

The busiest shopping time of the year is almost here, and if there's one thing that ever made checkout lines shorter and faster it's barcodes. Invented and patented by Norman Woodland and Bernard Silver in the 50s, barcodes started to be widely used only in the 70s, and they quickly changed the face of the modern commerce. Woodland and Silver based barcodes on the Morse code that they learned as boy scouts.
Photoshop barcodes any way you wish. Some examples are: add some art to barcodes; shape them into something, blend barcodes with objects, architecture, animals, paintings, etc. Many thanks to pcrdds for the themepost.

Winter Birds
23 entries - contest ended 12/12/2014

Most birds fly south in the winter. The question is, if we could provide our feathered friends with warm winter clothes, would they stick around even through the coldest months? Bird winter clothes are available and sold in many pet shops.
Photoshop any birds wearing warm clothes for the winter (coats, hats, boots, etc). Any birds are accepted in this contest, even the exotic birds that never saw winters. Many thanks to LunaC for the themepost.

John Lennon Today
18 entries - contest ended 12/11/2014

December 8 marks 34 years since John Lennon was killed by Mark David Chapman in New York. On that day the world lost the man who changed rock 'n' roll with The Beatles, the man who taught us to "imagine" the world with no countries, with all the people living life in peace... 34 years later John Lennon is still in our hearts as much as his songs.
Let us imagine how John Lennon would live his life nowadays. "It's easy if you try..."
