50. Anonymous Creep


Contest goal:
Colors can actually affect us physiologically. That’s why many dentist’s offices are pale green, or fast food restaurants have really bright colors. They can also affect our opinion of what we’e looking at, which is why the things we buy often have different choices of colors. This is a very open contest. The only rule is that the photo must be taken with a color filter. If you don’t have a filter, put a colored water bottle in front of the flash. Use the color to create a mood.

49. the farm


Contest goal:
Most of us have them. Old, new, dirty, clean…. but it seems most garage doors are a bit dull. Take an artistic shot of garage doors. No barn doors allowed – just garage. For this contest, ONLY color photos are allowed, since there have been so many Black and White photos entered and it would be more challenging to get a great picture of plain doors in color.

48. Needs a little TLC


Contest goal:
Humans always seem to want the newest and most modern of everything, whether it’s cars, computers, music, or anything else. This is often true for buildings as well. The problem is we often leave the old ones to decay on their own. For this theme, take a shot of an unoccupied/abandoned building or structure. Black and white/sepia entries are encouraged. Good luck!

Whether the models are male female, adults or children, show us the make-up they display. Runway models, drag queens, clowns or just face painting, enter your best makeup shots.

14. Carmen SanDiego?????


Contest goal:
Hats have been around since the earliest days of mankind. Over time, we have become accustomed to them and most of us probably own one. They can be of all different shapes, sizes, colors and materials. Whether it be a baseball cap, Yakima, part of some outrageous costume or even a top hat, show your most artistic take on the many hats we wear. Of course it’s OK for people to be in the shot. Who else would be commonly wearing them? It also must be an intended hat. A plate of spaghetti on someone’s head may look funny but it’s not a hat. Wigs, toupees, brace headgear will not be accepted as hats as well. Good Luck!
