Congrats illstr8r on your first gold Not sure how a rose got in the middle of all that tongue twisting though..hehe
Congratulations on the first gold illstr8r. Love the "election 2008: we all lose" sign.
Congratulations , this is done so well the idea ,plus the artwork.
An interesting composition. Congrats on your first win at FN. Please attempt to judge other entries fairly though on the basis of what they submit as I was unable to find the FIVE entries in this contest which you decided that a vote of '1' was warranted. Refer to the Voting guidelines to make sure that you know what is expected of FN members as a vote of '1' means the entry should not be on FN and should be Flagged and that is slap in the face to the individual who took the time to create and enter their work.
Hopefully Newsmater will have informed illstr8r of the rules. When I was noobie and voted all over the place, I got an e-mail about it.
Thanks for all of the kind remarks and suggestions. I have reread the guidelines and thought I was voting fairly... in the future I will give my votes more due diligence. Again thanks.
Every weekend we have a Freaking News of the Week (Week in Pictures) contest. But this week it's time for the grand yearly contest where we ask you to
create images of anything that happened in the news during the year 2008. You can pick the notable events, or any other interesting news which others may or may not have heard. This year will be remembered by American presidential election, bank crunch with mortgage defaults and Fed's numerous attempts to save America from financial crisis.
Here's to good news in 2009 - let it bring health, prosperity, and lots of blessings to you and your families. Happy New Year!

Hillary Clinton ended her bid for the White House, while Obama sealed the nomination. The tables turned, and just 2 months later after Clinton was offering a VP seat to Obama, she now openly stated she'll be happy to be Obama's running mate, if he puts her on VP ticket.
Let's go one step ahead of media sources and announce that Hillary Clinton will be Obama's running mate in 2008 presidential elections. Photoshop Hillary Clinton as Obama's puppet. Here's a similar example (done with Al Gore and Howard Dean). You can simply photoshop "master Obama and puppet Clinton" together, or use this puppet theme in Obama Clinton 2008 election posters, demotivational posters, movies, and paintings.

Given the current riots in Tibet, China, 2008 Beijing Olympic Games are under big question. They will either be held with big restrictions, or canceled altogether if most countries boycott the games in the light of the violent actions from Chinese government to stop the Tibet riots. China's Communist Party warned that it will censor and ban any mass media from broadcasting the Olympic Games if any negative facts about China - including the recent riots - are broadcasted along the footage of the Olympic Games.
Photoshop anything connected to 2008 Beijing Olympic Games in the light of the recent events. Some examples are: designing a logo or poster for 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, show how magazine articles and TV footage will be censored, photoshop games controlled by Chinese troops, etc.
The 80th Academy Awards night is this Sunday. There was a lot of tension and uncertainty about the upcoming Oscar night because of the Hollywood writers strike. Luckily the strike ended soon enough to still arrange Oscars in full glory, so we can expect a wonderful show.
Photoshop anything related to the Academy Awards (Oscars). Some examples are - photoshopping any of the Oscar nominee movies (think of even combining any of these movies), showing where Oscar show could be held alternatively (because of writers strike, etc.), showing who could surprisingly receive Oscars (non-actors, politicians, etc).
