New Contest Format Added

Greetings, Freakers!!!

Well, we have added a new contest format to Freaking News. Starting today, "Apprentice Contests" have been added. You can find the new contest on the home page down by the Picture of the Day. It has a big green header. Our plan is to run these contests for 3 days. The awards are smaller than the regular news contests too. All the award credits are from donations from other FN members. I think the standard awards will be $5.00 for 1st, $3.00 for 2nd & $2.00 for 3rd places. As it stands now all contests will have a theme image. This is the supplied image we post for you to chop. We will be giving you a theme to chop too. It may be a B2B (back to basics) type contest or maybe a contest using one of our tutorials. We may have an Invisibles contest and the like. We have this set up so that if you have 5 gold medals you can not enter. These contests are for the members who just want to better their photoshopping skills and not for the "pros". Also, we are asking all of you other members to look at these contests and give a good critique of the images. The submission time will be 3 days. This gives you time to read your comments and edit your image. Learning is what it is all about.

We at Freaking News hope to see as much interest in these contest as the regular contests.

Yer pal, Keb

Those medals have my vote. I think they are great.
Maybe bronze needs to be a little darker. It could be easily mistaken for gold as it is.
Thanks for taking time to make them, nilo.

Yes, my thought would be to make gold a bit more yellow, and bronze a bit more brown. But they are sweet, aren't they?

I have made several changes on stats pages to show Apprentice contests. Just for testers I have changed one of the very first FN contests (it was a test contest anyway) to be Apprentice Contest. I have marked with red arrows the stats on stats pages associated with the Apprentice Contests. Trophies are different, Medal count is separate and entries for Apprentice Contests are colored pink on the graph, while usual contest entries are graphed in blue:

In your reflection what do you see? False fault or a masterpiece? But a masterpiece starts with a single stroke and empires start in an open field.
