10th Birthday Badge

Every deviant who successfully finishes the puzzle and submits their high score will receive our official 10th Birthday Badge!

Just click on the 'Start' button to begin.  Keep in mind these helpful tips:

  • To move a puzzle piece, simply click on the piece and drag it to anywhere on the board. Once you select a piece, it will be on top of the pile, so you are aware of the one you clicked.
  • To rotate a piece, click on the piece, then hit the spacebar or the arrow keys in the direction you want the piece to rotate. You can also rotate the piece by selecting it and scrolling up and down the page, but be warned, this may cause the piece to spin quickly.
  • Once you find two pieces that fit together, drag one next to the other, and if they're a true fit, they will automatically mesh together as one.
  • The puzzle won't take up the entire space, so feel free to use the extra space to drop pieces you are unsure about.

Once all the pieces are together, submit your high score to automatically receive the 10th Birthday Badge!

  • The 10th Birthday: Get Puzzled game is open to all deviantART members worldwide.
  • Membership to deviantART is free.
  • Feel free to play as many times as your heart desires, but remember you can only get the 10th Birthday Badge once.

Your challenge is to depict a shadowy twist to a "normal" daily experience showing that danger is always closer than expected: an everyday activity that may be haunted; an accident about to happen; a terror that lurks within! Whether your artwork is based on the Insidious Chapter 2 trailer or the original film, Insidious, or you simply rely on your own sense of approaching dread, we want to see it!

Watch the Insidious Chapter 2 Trailer and read the contest Challenge. Using the visual medium of your choice depict a twist to a "normal" daily experience suggesting that danger is always closer than you think.

Photomanipulation Contest: Rebirth and Renewal

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 14, 2013, 11:55 PM

Welcome to the latest community competition for Photomanipulation!


This is the official kick-off blog for the latest, greatest EXTREME PHOTOMANIPULATION CONTEST here on dA! The contest is backed by communityrelations with HUGE prizes and hosted by CRPhotomanipulation. This journal describes the rules for the contest. Please read it carefully.


What we mean by "Extreme" photomanipulation


You should reach beyond your comfort zone and create a deviation that is bold, unique, and better than you thought you could create. Try something new. Break the mold. You've got this!

We have HUGE prizes. So, we are expecting HUGE results.


Theme: Rebirth and Renewal


Our theme, Rebirth and Renewal, was suggested by administrators of CRPhotomanipulation. You are hereby challenged to create a photomanipulation that shows rebirth and/or renewal. For example, it could show a transformation of sorts, being brought to life, or perhaps shedding the old to reveal something fresh and beautiful (or ugly!) beneath. Perhaps your transformation is into death, and you can show that. You should interpret what being reborn or renewed means to YOU and then depict it in a photomanipulation.


Time frame


The contest will be open for 2.5 months.

Contest opens: 15 January 2013
Contest closes: 1 April 2013, 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time (visit www.timeanddate.com to find out what time that is for you)

The Rules


Here are the rules in detail:

:bulletpink: Your entry MUST be a PHOTOMANIPULATION. That means it involves 2 or more photographic elements that have been combined to create something new. It is absolutely fine to have photomanipulations that have been painted over (and thus may technically be Mixed Media). SINGLE photographs that have ONLY been brushed or textured will not qualify. There must be at least 2 photographic elements. If you are in doubt, please check with us!

:bulletpink: No entries created before January 15, 2013 will be accepted. Entries must be new and specifically created for this competition.

:bulletpink: Contest closes at 11:59 PM PST on April 1st. No late entries will be accepted.

:bulletpink: *ALL* stock must be credited, including brushes. All stock must be from legitimate sources. If you don't know where the stock that was used to create your premade background came from, don't use it. If you don't know where the cutout stock came from, don't use it. We will decline all entries with questionable stock. If you don't know, ask. Direct links are NOT necessary, but they are always appreciated. See the stock reminder here.

:bulletpink: Collaborations are OK as long as all collaborators are credited, but if a prize is won, that prize will be split evenly among collaborators. If you are submitting a collaboration, you only need to submit the work once.

:bulletpink: You may enter up to TWO deviations, but you can only win once.

:bulletpink: Please include a statement in your artist's comments that you have created the deviation for the Rebirth and Renewal Photomanipulation Competition. Please link to this blog.

:bulletpink: There are special rules and requirements for some categories. Please carefully read the submission requirements below.


How do I submit?


There are three folders in CRPhotomanipulation that are open for submission: BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE, and ADVANCED. You should choose which level you feel is most appropriate for your art and submit to that folder. There are special rules and requirements for some categories. Please read below to find out which one is best for your work! If you have questions, please ask.

Here is the rubric and rules for deciding where to submit:

BEGINNING ARTISTS must demonstrate knowledge of:

:bulletgreen: Cutting out stock properly :bulletgreen:
:bulletgreen: Arranging pieces to tell a story (effective composition) :bulletgreen:
:bulletgreen: Must use at least 2 tutorials (and cite them in artist's comments). They can be on or off of dA. :bulletgreen:

INTERMEDIATE ARTISTS must demonstrate knowledge of:

:bulletblue: Composition :bulletblue:
:bulletblue: Color theory :bulletblue:
:bulletblue: Light and shadow :bulletblue:
:bulletblue: Proportions :bulletblue:

ADVANCED ARTISTS must demonstrate mastery of:

:bulletpurple: Light and shadow :bulletpurple:
:bulletpurple: Composition :bulletpurple:
:bulletpurple: Blending (you can't tell it is made from different images) :bulletpurple:
:bulletpurple: Perspective :bulletpurple:
:bulletpurple: Flair (the "wow!" factor) :bulletpurple:
:bulletpurple: Must have at least one aspect that either (1) has a sense of movement, OR (2) defies the law(s) of physics (for example: defying gravity, energy being created or destroyed, etc.). :bulletpurple:


ALL ENTRIES will also be judged based on:

:bulletpink: Impact
:bulletpink: Storytelling (Is your image just a pretty picture, or does it tell a story?)
:bulletpink: Creative interpretation of theme
:bulletpink: Originality
:bulletpink: Exceeding expectations (Is this a stand-out piece from your gallery?)

Submissions require one vote for approval. This is so that we can make sure they meet the contest rules; we are not screening for quality, etc.

To be clear, the admins of CRPhotomanipulation will NOT move your deviation or choose the category to which it is submitted. That is entirely up to the artist. We reserve the right to suggest that a piece of art be submitted to a higher category-- for example, an advanced artist should not submit to the beginner category.
