Eyeglasses in Art
41 entries - contest ended 2/27/2015

The first eyeglasses were invented and made in Italy around 1280, and while their popularity grew, the first artwork that depicts sunglasses appeared only in 1352. It was a portrait of Cardinal Hugo of Provence at his writing desk, painted by Italian master Tomaso de Mondena. The reason why eyeglasses were very rarely used in portraits was that on the design side they were quite bulky and ugly. It was not til the 19th century that eyeglasses became stylish, modern, and popular so much that people liked to be photographed and painted with them. Let us show how famous paintings would look if characters there were depicted with eyeglasses (modern or antique). Please note that we focus on eyeglasses with lenses, not sunglasses. Please refer to the themepost example by Mundo.

If you have a car, cell phone, computer, flashlight, or a wireless mouse, then you have batteries, and you may not realize how much they've improved in the past few centuries. The next time you need batteries, choose rechargeables to help reduce the number of batteries that end up in our landfills.
Photoshop how batteries can power any items, animals, or even people. Many thanks to fleek for the themepost.

27 entries - contest ended 2/19/2015

U.S. Presidents Day, officially known as Washington's Birthday, is a federal holiday in the United States and is celebrated on the third Monday of February. This year, Presidents Day falls on February 16. Although it has become known as a great weekend for sales, especially on cars, there's a lot more to the holiday. Presidents Day is a good chance to learn more about American History, including the interesting facts from the lives of American Presidents.
Let's mix US History and US Presidents - take any US President and show how he could have served in the office in different times. Obama Crossing the Delaware river, Nixon invading Iraq - these are just some examples. You can also show private lives and hobbies of the "presidents out of their times". Many thanks to JimShorts for the themepost.

American actor Leonard Nimoy died in Los Andeles following a long battle with a lung disease (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). Nimoy was best known for his iconic role of Mr. Spock in the Star Trek series. Doctors said the lung disease he had is a result of Nimoy's heavy smoking for decades. He stopped smoking over 30 years ago, but his lungs were already damaged. Millions of Star Trek fans mourn his death today. Nimoy's last tweet was on February 23: "Life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory."
