The half-human half-bat creature Bat Boy was created in the early days of Photoshop in 1992, by former Weekly World News editor Dick Kulpa. Bat Boy's iconic screaming face debuted on the cover of Weekly World News tabloid on June 23, 1992. This issue of WWN became the second-best selling issue in the tabloid's history, making Bat Boy a pop-culture icon that since then appeared in many WWN issues, several books and movies, and even had the whole musical about him.
We are doing this contest together with our partner site Weekly World News - WWN is inviting their visitors to come to FN and enter this contest. Together we are going to show the world that Bat Boy is an American hero and rules the world. The winners of this contest will featured by WWN at the end of the week in the special article dedicated to this contest. Select contest images may also be printed in the Weekly World News tabloid.

[ This holiday season in Florence, Italy, you can see more artists impersonating characters from paintings and statues - street artists dressed and posing as Mona Lisa, and "living statues" of monks. ]
The art of living statues requires a great deal of patience and physical stamina - people dressed as some characters don't move for hours. The only other people on earth that can do this are government employees.
In this contest you are asked to integrate parts of old oil paintings or statues into modern settings using a masterpiece of your choice. This contest was inspired by our apprentice contest Masterpieces Modernized which contains perfect examples of entries we are looking for in this contest.
