Culinary Creations: Still Life Photography Contest
-Culinary Creations- Still Life Food Photography Contest Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it a
Bring Your Type to Life - A Typography Contest
It is time for another Typography contest! The theme of this contest will be… Bring your Type to Life This may sound abstract at first, but to keep the theme as open as possible, I choose a rather abstract title. There are many directions in which you can go. You could choose an anthropomorphic direction, where you breathe life into letters and give them human or other animate characteristics. Another route would be to create the letters out of living objects, such as plants or animals. Which direction you choose, maybe even a third or fourth one, does not matter. What matters is that your letters are brought to life! What kind of le

Darkness falls across the land . . .
The midnight hour is close at hand . . .
Creatures crawl in search of blood . . .
To terrorize your neighborhood!

- Michael Jackson, Thriller



You decide what happens when darkness falls!
Is it macabre? Is it fantasy? Is it emotional?
It is up to you.




Welcome to our 2012 Photomanipulation Contest, "When Darkness Falls."
This contest is being held by Aeirmid and The-Sacred-Space.
We are grateful to Community Relations for backing this contest.
Any photomanipulator can join, and all are welcome.



Your task is to complete the sentence:
When darkness falls, _____
using a photomanipulation!
[In other words: Show us what happens when Darkness falls!]

You can interpret the sentence to mean anything you want.
It doesn't have to be dark or horror/macabre,
but it must be very clear that you are using the 'darkness' theme.
Fantasy is fine; Emotional is fine.
Remember: Out of darkness comes the light.
This is a theme anyone can use; be creative and reach beyond your boundaries!

I'm a big confused by "It doesn't have to be dark or horror/macabre, but it must be very clear that you are using the 'darkness' theme..."
So is it okay as long as the setting is in the dark or the night even if its a magical or even cheerful atmosphere?
Aeirmid's avatar
Aeirmid Digital Artist
Right.... for example... out of darkness comes the light... it's all about how you frame it :)
