Hello friends!

As just a 6 months old group, we at :iconart-revival: are proud to announce our second big contest of the year. With all due thanks to all our members' and sponsors' support which has helped us to stay at the helm in such a short time.

Coming to the theme of the contest, which you've already guessed is about TIME but you'll all wonder why "TALKING" even though it's a photomanipulation challenge? But yes that's what it is - a digital and visual representation of TIME based on idioms, quotes, aphorisms and proverbs.


So, what you have to do in this contest is:

⏰Create a photomanipulation based on any idiom (proverb, aphorism, quote) associated with Time. For example: To illustrate the idiom "Time flies" you may portray a flying clock, however I'm sure that you can come up with something more creative;)

⏰Please mention the idiom (proverb, aphorism, quote) in the description on which your entry is visually based upon.

⏰An idiom (or a proverb) should be famous, you cannot invent it. If it's a not too commonly heard one, please include a link to the source in your description.

⏰If you use an aphorism or a quote please specify in the description who owns these words, and also include a link to the source. 

⏰Your entry's title must be closely associated to the idiom (proverb, quote, aphorism) on which it is based on.

We found 

A Visual List of 100 English IDIOMS FOR TIME with Examples

Time Quotes

Aphorisms by theme: TIME

Motivational Time Quotes, Sayings and Proverbs

which can help you.
