As a sign of support for their Olympic teams, many countries are issuing new sets of stamps dedicated to the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi. Such sets will quickly become collectibles for fans of the Olympics, and especially for stamp collectors.
Design any postage stamps by any country related to the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi. Some examples of what you could feature on these stamps are: show support for your country team, pinpoint some issues with Sochi Olympics, feature some athletes who are participating, as well as those people and characters who could (or could not) be participating in these games, etc.
This Sunday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images. Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics will start on February 7, but the Olympic touch is already on the way from Greece to Sochi, traditionally hand-carried on ground and even on water. On today's source photo the tourch is seen delivered through lake Baikal in ice-cold water just days ago.
Photoshop the photo of Sochi Olympic torch delivery (photo credit: RIA NOVOSTI) any way you wish.
This is a speed contest with just a day for submissions.
So the fat lady has finished singing. This morning many woke up, flicked on the TV and slapped their foreheads as they realized there was no sport on. The 2012 London Olympics are over.
Athletes are packing their bags and going home,
while the countries are waiting for their heroes who are bringing home hard-earned Olympic medals. Many countries are giving extra perks to their athletes for the medals. E.g. Russia's Putin officially announced that a special fund of $10 mln is set to be distributed among all Russian Olympic medalists. Most Olympic medalists didn't wait to get home to start celebrating, and partied hard already in London.
Take any Olympic medalists and show how they may (or may not) be celebrating their medals upon coming home.
This Friday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images.
Photoshop this image of a London 2012 Olympic torchbearer (image credit: Farrukh) any way you wish. Some examples are - making the 2012 London Olympic torchbearer perform some stunts, swapping his female companion for someone else, putting the Olympic torchbearer into some new environment, using this 2012 London Olympic torchbearer image in movies, paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.
Through the first 11 days of the Olympics, we've seen surprise losses and surprise wins, the (usual) controversy about the Chinese team (possible underage athlete use, harsh pressure on the athletes), disqualifications based on doping, athletes falling unconscious, and empty empty seats of the stadiums - even cardboard standups were used not to ruin the photoshoots and TV programs.
Create motivational or de-motivational posters related to the 2012 London Olympic Games. Try to make them mimic the classic (de)motivational posters format - black background, image in the middle, followed by the title word(s), and (de)motivational message below.
The image in the middle has to be photoshopped, so you can not just take unaltered photo and add text to it.
