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.
Ukraine's ousted president Victor Yanukovich is the country's #1 wanted man - the Ukrainian police are distributing "wanted" posters across the country. Anyone who sees the runaway prez or knows his whereabouts is asked to contact the local police office. Meanwhile Russia said they are ready to give Yanukovich political asylum.
Take any celebrity, politician, animal (or any object) and make a "wanted" poster of it. Here's a good example by GarRobMil, and another good example by unlimitededitions.
On January 17, 1899, in Brooklyn, New York, a boy was born to Italian immigrant parents, Gabriele Capone and Teresina Raiola. Named Alphonse ("Al"), he grew up to become the America's most notorious mobster. Despite his criminal record, Al Capone spent at least 20% of his criminal money on charity and was seen as a modern-day Robin Hood by many people. Capone became a cultural icon and his criminal mastermind, lifestyle and look gave the inspiration for many books and movies.
To recall the old gangster times, take any celebrity or politician and make a "wanted" poster of your subject.
Show us what "crimes" or activities your victim could be wanted for. Here's a good example by GarRobMil, and another good example by unlimitededitions.
Back in 2009 Austrian designer Albert Exergian created a series of minimalist posters for famous TV shows. Little did he know his work would inspire a new internet meme called "minimalist movie posters" which depict famous movies in as few symbols as possible. Here are some more great examples.
Photoshop minimalist movie posters showing any symbols from movies like in the examples above. From the first wave of submissions it seems that most members have misunderstood the directions. The contest did not call for depicting movie titles, it asks you to show any symbol(s) that is(are) specific to the movie you are depicting. E.g. in one example above the poster for movie Seven shows the box that appears in the last scene of the movie.
Labor Day weekend is almost here. Doug Larson once said: "If all the cars in the United States were placed end to end, it would probably be Labor Day Weekend."
To celebrate Labor Day at Freaking News, design any motivational or demotivational poster asking Americans to work harder. An example could be a demotivational poster featuring Britney with the words "My last rehab treatment costs more than an average American makes in a year. Work Harder."
Here's another good example.
Try to make them mimic the classic (de)motivational posters format like these examples - black background, image in the middle, followed by the title word(s), and demotivational message below. The image in the middle has to be photoshopped, so you can not just take unaltered photo and add text to it. Remember that your entry in this contest HAS to include the title word(s) and a (de)motivational text message, like in the examples above.
