Dorses!
41 entries - contest ended 5/2/2015

The first animal that humans domesticated was the dog (actually the wolf that evolved into the dog living with humans). The second domesticated animal was the horse. Dogs provided protection from other animals, served as guards, and helped in hunting. Horses were used as transport. So, these two animals are the oldest (and some still say the best) men's friends; not cats that were domesticated way later and had no practical use.
Mix dogs and horses any way you wish. (We'll call it a dorse). Many thanks to Mandrak for the themepost.

Propaganda Posters
18 entries - contest ended 5/1/2015

May 1 is International Workers' Day, also known as May Day. This holiday is one of the most loved holidays of Communist and Anarchist organizations and their affiliated unions who celebrate this holiday by organizing marches with propaganda posters. Soviet Union was the biggest country that celebrated May Day with nation-wide parades and propaganda posters. These days May Day is no longer an official holiday in Russia and many ex-communist countries, but remaining communist parties still organize parades on May 1. International Workers' Day does remain one of the main communist holidays in China - celebrated with parades and propaganda posters.
To celebrate the upcoming May Day in a "Freaking News way", Photoshop any old propaganda posters any way you wish. Here are two good examples - poster 1, poster 2. Many thanks to LunaC for the themepost.

Vintage Photo Montage
48 entries - contest ended 4/26/2015

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 1960) 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. Please note that this is a speed contest with only 24 hours for submissions. Many thanks to funkwood for the themepost.
