English Idioms
18 entries - contest ended 7/31/2015

English language is considered one of the easiest languages to learn, given its simple grammar structure and word formation. However, English language has more idioms than any other language - they present the biggest challenge for foreigners. Without learning and understanding idioms, no foreigner can speak English as a native speaker.
Today we are going to help all foreigners understand English idioms. Choose any English idiom and depict/photoshop it. Here's a good list of some of the English idioms (not idiots!). Many thanks to lucianomorelli for the themepost.

Moon Landing Hoax
14 entries - contest ended 7/25/2015

July 20 marked the 46th anniversary of the moon landing, when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin turned a new page in space exploration by landing and walking on the moon. There is a growing number of people, however, that consider July 20 to be the anniversary of the moon landing HOAX, especially in the light of the 2009 NASA statement that all original recordings of the moon landing (and that's over 700 boxes) were erased by mistake. Well, not to worry, folks, Freaking News is here to save the world yet again.
Show any evidence that moon landing was a staged hoax. (Some examples could be showing the "uncut version" of the moon landing photos, showing it was a staged photo set.) Many thanks to skitterchick for the themepost.

Animals in Space
1 entries - contest started 7/31/2015 5:00:00 AM

Did you know that this spring NASA's cargo spaceship (SpaceX CRS-6) delivered 20 mice to the International Space Station? These mice are studied for the effects of gravity absence on mammals - such as muscle and bone loss, as well as tendon mass loss. Sure, astronauts experience the same gravity absence and they are studied too, but the lifespan of mice is much shorter thus the long term effects can be seen faster. Yet mice and rats share about 96% of their DNA with humans, so they make perfect lab subjects (thus the expression "lab rat").
Photoshop anything related to space exploration by animals. E.g. show how space exploration history would be different if animals explored space instead of humans, photoshop animal astronauts, etc. All animals - living, extinct, or even mythical are accepted for this contest (except for humans)! Many thanks to pcrdds for the themepost.

Two-Faced Celebrities
26 entries - contest started 7/29/2015 5:00:00 AM

Public figures are often accused of being two-faced. When Abraham Lincoln was accused of being two-faced he replied, "If I had two faces, do you think this is the one I'd be wearing?".
Today we are going to literally create two-faced celebrities and politicians. The right half of a face has to be from one celebrity and the left half from another. Here's a good example . Politicians and celebrities face mixes are also allowed and cross gender face breeds too. This contest is a sequel to our mega popular contest from 2006 that was featured in many newspapers and magazines including People Magazine and The Daily Mail. Please include celebrity names in your entry titles. Many thanks to LunaC for the themepost.
