11.1.2014: Only today left! Get your entries in!
Edit 24.11.13: Updated prizes + put the date in proper format; updated rules - one line added:
"Entries that keep too closely to the inspirational source (i.e. the ones that basically copy the image by just switching the stock) will be rejected."
I have decided to wait a little longer before adding any judges so you are not limited by maybe wanting to avoid certain people as inspirational sources
Edit 4.12.13: Please, please, please, read the rules before you start!

It's that time again.
For this contest, you are being offered a "stock bank" to select your stocks from. There is no particular theme; just wing it!
The majority (but not 100%!) of your manipulation must contain stocks from the given choices. You may find some textures or other little odds and ends to use. Also, you do not need to use a piece from each category listed below (but you can use more than one from the same category if you'd like). All stock/textures you are using outside of the bank must be legit.
Make sure you read each stock artists' rules! This is a must. Also, always give proper credit and notify of usage. Please remember to do this, or the entry will not be accepted.
There will be 3 different categories: beginner, intermediate, and advanced (when submitting your entry or entries via note,

What do I do?
Select one of your older (i.e. at least 2 months old) photomanipulations. Yes, it must be a photomanipulation! Your task is to remake that manipulation and give it a new life. You should think about not just recreating the exact same image all over again, but rather recreating it so that it is new, fresh, and a bit different. This is your chance to try

Planetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!Mythology of the PlanetsPlanetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome to the latest "dark" photomanipulation contest, supported by Community Relations here on deviantART. This contest will challenge you to think outside of the box, for you will have to not only create something, but you will need to do a bit of research and think about why you are creating it. Are you ready for a competition that is out of this world?
Before we go any further, let me clarify that PLUTO COUNTS!
What do I have to do?
Choose one of the planets (or Pluto) in our solar system, listed below. Moons or suns can be a part of the larger picture, but they do not count as your god/goddess.
Your job is to create a PHOTOMANIPULATION in which you show a myth around a planetary ruler (that is, the god or goddess after which the planets were named).
The gods/goddesses can be Greek, Roman, or other.... but they must be planetary rulers.
REMINDER - New Contest: Hell's BellesWhat is this?REMINDER - New Contest: Hell's Belles9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This is a brief contest, meaning that you will have only one month to complete it. It is a personal contest, meaning I'm doing this on my own, and it's not the huge project/contest to which I alluded in an earlier post. That's still coming.
This contest will run from March 7th to April 6th, 2015. It is something I've wanted to do for a while to meet new people and to get people involved in the community.
Who can enter?
I will only accept photomanipulations, digital mixed media work, and digital paintings/drawings. These are the only media I feel comfortable judging. I apologize to those of you who do not use these media.
The theme of this contest is Hell's Belles. The theme is indeed a pun on "hells bells," so you can rock out to AC/DC's iconic song as you contemplate your entry. (See above.)
By "Hell's Belles," I am referring to women who roc

This challenge has ended. Thank you for the entries, and for a successful first run!
The winners will be selected within a couple days.
You've heard of flash mobs, right? Large groups of people that meet in public places and perform in some way for a short amount of time, then disperse and act as if nothing happened, leaving everyone else surprised and confused? I figured I'd try to incorporate something like that into a short challenge.
You will be given a theme. The idea is to quickly piece together a manip based on that theme. Because the time limit to complete it will be short, technical skill will not be heavily judged.
There will be more of these challenges, but they will not be on a set schedule. Like a flash mob, they're meant to surprise you and keep you on your toes.

Photomanipulation Tournament 2014Something awesome this way comes!!!!Photomanipulation Tournament 20142 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We are excited to introduce our newest photomanipulation challenge to the community. This is a series of battles to determine who can out-manipulate the other teams. This is a super long journal, but please take a minute at least to skim it and find out what this exciting challenge is all about. If you want to register, there are instructions at the bottom.
We are seeking prizes! If you are able to help, please leave a comment on this journal or contact Aeirmid.
What is a manip-off?
The manip-off is a series of "battles" in which rival teams/individuals challenge one another to reach beyond their photomanipulation skills and create something awesome. It's a battle to the death, and only one person or team will emerge victorious. We are looking for photomanip "champions," so there are three "rounds" of manipulations plus a championship round to choose a winner.

It's finally here! Our very first contest. I know it took a while, but we really wanted to come up with an awesome theme!
The Crawling Dark Wings
It sounds a lot more complicated than it actually is. What the title tells you is that your artwork must consist of an arachnid and dark wings. It doesn't necessarily mean you have to use black wings an a spider. I would like to somewhere see a human type of arachnid with weird creepy wings. Be open minded, think further than your noses!!!
