Historic DMZ Handshake
18 entries - contest ended 7/9/2019

On Sunday, President Donald Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to set foot on North Korean soil when he walked over into the Demilitarized Zone that divides the Korean peninsula. While meeting with world leaders at the G20 summit in Japan, Trump tweeted he was leaving Japan for South Korea, and would like to meet Chairman Kim of North Korea at the Border/DMZ just to shake his hand and say Hello. The hand shake led to a roughly 45-minute-long meeting, in which he and Kim agreed on restarting negotiations in the hopes of brokering a deal to start the full denuclearization of the peninsula. Following their handshake, the president extended an invite to Kim Jong Un to the White House. (Image-Credit-GettyImages).

Neckless Celebrities
12 entries - contest ended 6/30/2019

Many women with short neck wonder what jewelry would make it look longer. Stylists recommend wearing long necklace which makes the neck look longer and gives overall slimming visual effect. Women with short neck or round face should avoid choker necklaces and loops or hoops since they will make their necks appear even shorter.
This is a sequel to the popular Neckless Celeb contest. Photoshop celebrities or politicians without necks one way or another. You are welcome to choose the "anatomical details" (e.g. whether you keep the mouth or remove it with the neck), but you should definitely remove the neck. Please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player.

Degas 2019

July 19 is the 185th birthday of one of the most famous French artists - Edgar Degas. He is regarded as one of the founders of Impressionism, even though he more preferred to be called a realist. Obsessed with painting, he turned his room into an artist studio by the age of 18. His father - a wealthy French banker - was originally against Edgar's love for art and wanted him to become a lawyer instead. At the age of 21, Degas dropped out of Law school and went to Italy for three years where he copied the works of Michelangelo, Raphael and Titian. Degas talent flourished under the guidance of his first teacher Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, whose first advice to Edgar was "draw lines, young man, many lines..." )
To mark the 185th birthday of Edgar Degas, show how his paintings would be different if he created them nowadays - e.g. including modern elements in his works, making them promote and endorse products and services, including celebrities and politicians in his art, hiring Degas to do movie posters, etc. Please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player.
