Pretty in Pink
23 entries - contest ended 6/30/2015

June 23 is known as National Pink Day! It's all about pink, which is considered girls' favorite color (also the favorite color of the Pink Panther and Barney the Dinosaur). June 23 is also the birthday of the famous singer Alecia Beth Moore who chose the stage name Pink, which was from Steve Buscemi's character in the 1992 movie Reservoir Dogs. Here's a part of the movie script, where the band is given their color names:
Mr. Pink: Why am I Mr. Pink?
Joe: 'Cause you're a faggot, alright?
Mr. Pink: How about if I'm Mr. Purple? That sounds good to me, I'll be Mr. Purple.
Joe: You're not Mr. Purple. Some guy on some other job is Mr. Purple. You're Mr. Pink!
Mr. White: Who cares what your name is?
Mr. Pink: Yeah that's easy for you to say, you're Mr. White, you have a cool sounding name...
To pay a tribute to this wonderful color, give pink color/theme (partially or fully) to any objects, animals, movies, paintings, or humans. Remember that pink color is very popular these days - e.g. a lot of companies are giving pink slips to their employees. Many thanks to paulac for the themepost.

Escher 2015
9 entries - contest ended 6/26/2015

June 17 is the 117th birthday of Maurtis Cornelis Escher - one of the most famous and recognizable artists in history. Escher's unique vision of the world combined art, patterns, and mathematics to create some of the physically impossible yet realistically looking illustrations, like "Waterfall" and "Ascending and Descending". Quite like some of his famous predecessors, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, Escher was a left handed artist. In addition to many famous drawings which, Escher also illustrated books, designed tapestries, and even was hired by the Dutch government to design new Dutch money in the 50s (the banknotes were finally not approved for being too "twisted"). The total count of Escher's works during his lifetime is over 2000.
Photoshop any of Escher's works any way you wish. Some examples are: show what his works would be like if he created them nowadays, merge his works and any other famous works of art, give famous movie posters Escher's style and theme, etc. Many thanks to LunaC for the themepost.

Celebrity Fathers
21 entries - contest ended 6/23/2015

This Sunday is the second most celebrated holiday in the USA next to Mother's Day. Father's Day is one day we have set aside to honor our father. Let's face it, we would really be nowhere without him.
To celebrate Father's Day at Freaking News we are asking you to photoshop any famous person as BOTH Father AND child in the same entry. A good example would be a father looking like Bill Clinton holding a child looking like Bill Clinton. Please note that we are not looking for real dads and kids of some celebrity. Rather we ask you to create a dad and a child version of himself, like in the themepost. Feel free to use photos or paintings as your sources. You can even chop women celebrities as dads and daughters. We think Rosie O'Donnel would make a great dad. Then she could be a great daddy's girl too. If you use male celebrities as fathers, you can always chop them as daughters too. Many thanks to LunaC for the themepost.

Gay Weddings

Past Friday the Supreme Court of the United States declared gay marriage a constitutional right, which caused a lot of joy among the LGBT community, and a lot of anger among the traditional Christians. Is this a triumph of equality, or the crumbling of the traditional American values?
Photoshop gay weddings, where a bride and a groom are of the same gender. Many thanks to pcrdds for the themepost.
