Christopher Columbus
16 entries - contest ended 10/12/2018

Today is Columbus Day which is a public holiday in most states. The holiday celebrates the Columbus' arrival in the Americas on October 12, 1942, and is celebrated in many countries around the world under different names - as "Fiesta Nacional" in Spain, as "Día de la Raza" in most countries of Latin America, as "Day of Respect for Cultural Diversity" in Argentina, as "Day of the Americas" in Belize and Uruguay, and as "Discovery Day" in the Bahamas. Christopher Columbus was of Italian origin, so Columbus Day has grown into a celebration of Italian-American heritage.
To celebrate Columbus Day at Freaking News, photoshop Christopher Columbus any way you wish. Some examples are - show what would happen to Columbus if he tried to "illegally" cross the borders these days, what profession he'd choose if he lived nowadays, what products and and services he'd endorse, etc. PLEASE NOTE: LIMIT 3 ENTRIES PER PLAYER. Many themepost thanks to Gummy

Caravaggio 2018
18 entries - contest ended 9/30/2018

September 28 is the 447th birthday of Italian artist, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, arrogant, rebellious and a murderer, Caravaggio's short and tempestuous life matched the drama of his works. Characterised by their dramatic, almost theatrical lighting, Caravaggio's paintings were controversial, popular, and hugely influential on succeeding generations of painters all over Europe. Was probably the most revolutionary artist of his time, for he abandoned the rules that had guided a century of artists who had idealized both the human and religious experience. He can be said almost single-handedly to have created the Baroque style.
Photoshop any painting by Caravaggio to include some modern elements in it. Think of celebrities, modern architecture, and even sci-fi features, etc. and show how Caravaggio paintings would be different if he painted them in the modern days. PLEASE NOTE: LIMIT 3 ENTRIES PER PLAYER. For the Masterpieces of Caravaggio and history of his extremely notorious life follow this LINK Many thanks to LunaC for the themepost, Aliens in Caravaggio's Supper at Emmaus

Feeling Batty
16 entries - contest started 10/17/2018 8:00:00 AM

Halloween is just two weeks away and the bat is one character you will see a lot during the holiday. The connection between bats and Halloween may seem natural because there are three species that feed primarily on blood (the “vampire” bats). These vampire bats are where the group as a whole got their connection to Halloween.
For this contest, merge bats with other animals or humans any way you wish. Many thanks to, lucianomorelli for the themepost. PLEASE NOTE: LIMIT 3 ENTRIES PER PLAYER. For more on Bats connection to Halloween, follow this LINK
