There is a challenge that is only for photomanipulation groups. It's called the "Anti-Cliche Challenge"
, and it challenges photomanipulators to take overly-used stock photos and do something completely different with it.
This challenge is sponsored by #CRPhotomanipulation
Participants can take an overly-used stock for this challenge, or create a deviation that would be different for them on a personal level. For example, one can create a surreal deviation instead of a realistic one; or, a deviant could use a different stock theme from what they usually do, like creating fairies over a Gothic theme deviation, or creating a scene with a model instead of with horses. Examples:
In addition, to make this a fair challenge, there are two (2) entry categories, Beginners and Intermediate/Advance. Each category will have three winners, and there are prizes appropriate for each category.
The "Anti-Clche Challenge" runs from February 1st through February 28th. To share this information with your group and help pimp this challenge, find the detail journal with all of the information here: The Anti-Chiche Challenge
