If this is something everyone would like to partake in again let me know, because this time I looked at the old posts from members of previous contests of mine and would like to have 3 U.M. members to vote with me on the winners and discuss the challenge before it is officially started.
If you want to be a part of the judging panel, please P.M. me! I will keep this thread updated... Now on to the challenge...
Here's the Gist:
We've all seen pictures on the internet depicting paranormal phenomenon. The goal for this contest, is to create a realistic photo-manipulation depicting said paranormal phenomenon. Some members here have gone to lengths to "Debunk" such photos as hoaxes and manipulations. I want to use this thread for submissions of said "photos" to test the creative abilities of our members!
Here's the challenge:
~ These pictures/photo-manipulations must be original to this contest. (No posting a previously made photo by someone else as your own material, or any other photo made by yourself previously in other contests.) I.E.: You cannot re-enter a manipulation made in a previous contest on U.M. if you didn't rank in the top 3 or honorable mentions. This also applies to contests outside of Unexplained-Mysteries.
~ I will allow only 2 submissions per person. This will limit the amount of pictures on this topic and allow the judges to select evenly.
~ You can use any form of digital manipulation tool in your creation. (Photoshop, ect...) I liked the idea of writing "Fake" or embedding it in the photo. It clarifies that it is indeed fake, and could prevent it for being passed as real.
~ If you are using photos by someone other than yourself (for backgrounds, characters, nuances..) try and obtain permission to use copyrighted works if you need to use any, or obtain free stock photos where you can online. You can credit source material, although it's not necessary.
~ All submissions are copyrighted to their creators. Please do not distribute, display, or use these pictures anywhere else other than this thread, unless approved by their creator(s).
~ Try and have fun with what you make! They don't have to be masterpieces of artwork.
With all that stated, lets see if anyone would want to participate, and potentially judge the THIRD PARANORMAL PHOTO-MANIPULATION CHALLENGE!
*As stated in my previous challenges, this is not to make fun of paranormal sciences; I believe in it wholeheartedly. This is merely for fun, so don't post flames on how this is a mockery....*
PLEASE DO NOT MAKE SUBMISSIONS UNTIL I MAKE THE CONTEST OFFICIAL. IF YOU DO, THEY WILL NOT BE COUNTED IN THE CONTEST.
Edit: Rule clarification.
