May Day! (Propaganda Posters)
28 entries - contest ended 4/30/2016

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 Malcolmxy for the themepost.

English Idioms

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.

Vintage Photo Montage
87 entries - contest ended 4/19/2016

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. Many thanks to funkwood for the themepost.

The upcoming Wednesday is Star Wars Day. It is always observed on May the 4th because it's the only day of the year when you go around saying "May the fourth be with you!" - the pun on the immortal phrase from the Star Wars saga.
To celebrate the upcoming Star Wars Day, put Star Wars characters in real life. E.g. give them new jobs, make them promote products and services, etc.
May the 4th Be With You!
