Magritte 2016
36 entries - contest ended 12/2/2016

November 21 is the birthday of Belgian surrealist painter Rene Magritte. His surrealist paintings are more than just visually impressive; they are frequently thought-provoking. His "The Treachery of Images" series of paintings shows realistically drawn objects titled "Ceci n'est pas…" (French for "This is not…"). His famed image of a pipe is captioned "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" ("This is not a pipe"). As Magritte himself stated: "The famous pipe. How people reproached me for it. And yet, could you stuff my pipe? No, it's just a representation, is it not? So if I had written on my picture 'This is a pipe,' I'd have been lying!" Magritte got a job designing wallpaper at a wallpaper factory, and as a sideline designed posters and advertisements. His first one-man exhibition, in 1927 in Brussels, was a flop, the art critics hating all 61 pieces shown. Magritte gained real fame in 1960 (shortly before his death in 1967) when his paintings influenced pop art and culture.
To celebrate the 117th birthday of Rene Magritte, photoshop any of his paintings. Some examples are: show how he would have created his works in the modern days, what people or objects he would choose, etc. (If you use any of his nude sources, please cover the models in bikini to make them safe for work).

Turkey Movies
37 entries - contest ended 11/27/2016

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Statistics show that the United States produces about 270 million turkeys a year, 30% of these turkeys are consumed by Americans during Thanksgiving. Turkeys have a sharp 270 degree vision, and are quite "sporty" birds - they run up to 20 miles per hour and fly up to 55 miles per hour. Turkeys are related to pheasants. Benjamin Franklin wanted the national bird to be a turkey, instead of the bald eagle. Let's pay a tribute to this bird today.
Photoshop turkeys into any famous movies. Feel free to adjust movie titles. Many thanks to preemiememe for the themepost.

If Goths Ruled
18 entries - contest ended 11/18/2016

Dark lipstick and eye shades are back in fashion, together with pale faces and dark clothes - goth fashion was trending past Halloween. From the catwalk to the high street the culture mood suddenly turned dark, and black is back in style.
Show how life would be differed if goths ruled the world. E.g. turn celebrities and animals into goths, show how goth culture would affect movies, paintings, and everyday life. Many thanks to Sunshine for the themepost.

The Day After the Elections

Wow, what a night! It's Trump, after all! America will have the first president who's never held public office before. Clinton conceded in a phone call to Trump, but will not speak tonight at her supporters' headquarters, campaign managed said.
Let's photoshop the election night or what happens the day after. Themepost image credit: CNN

Rock the Vote
16 entries - contest ended 11/7/2016

With less than 100 hours remaining till the election day, Clinton and Trump are campaigning hard to earn all the votes they can. Recent polls show that it's going to be a tight race, way tighter than expected. Remaining campaign money are used to produce the ads which explain to American voters why they should vote for one candidate and not vote for another. Campaign speeches are pretty much based on the same formula "vote for ... because..., and don't vote for... because..."
Photoshop motivational or demotivational posters encouraging (discouraging) American people to vote in this election. You can focus simply on participation (to vote or not to vote?), OR go further and create "VOTE" posters to give motivations to vote for your candidate (Clinton or Trump) OR create VOTE posters with demotivations which would discourage people to give votes for the other candidate (Clinton or Trump). For example your message at the lower part of your poster may say: "VOTE Clinton (Trump), IF (Because) ..."
Your posters should follow the format of classic "motivational / demotivational posters" - black background, image in the middle, followed by the title word(s), and the text message below. The image in the middle has to be photoshopped, so you can not just take unaltered photo and add text to it. To recall such kind of poster design, take a look at the good examples from our demotivational poster contest. NOTE: as an exception to our rules, in this contest you are allowed to recycle any of your previous entries of FN to use it for the central image in your (de)motivational poster.
