We are very excited and happy to announce this years Halloween Contest!
We would also like to give a special thanks to Pikkochan for the awesome suggestion!
This year's Halloween contest will be...URBAN LEGENDS!
Every single place and culture in the world has its own Urban Legends. From big cities to small country towns. From New Mexico's Legend of Rosewell to Japan's legend of Slit Mouth Woman. We all grew up being told some kind of terrifying legend!
So here is your photo challenge:
Please honor the terrifying Urban Legend of your choice through photography!
Which Urban Legend is your very favorite? We want you to convey the legend the best you can with your BJD's!
You may use one or more BJD in your photo.
If more than one person chooses the same legend/theme, please do not be detoured from doing it also! Go with the legend you want to do most.
All aspects of the photo will be judged.
Again, remember this is a MACABRE group! We expect your legends to reflect the group's overall theme!
Artistic abstract photos (of just hands/pieces, etc) are definitely ALLOWED!
Do your research and have fun!
(Please don't let your imagination feel stunted to one specific emotion. This contest is open to both serious and humorous ideas, as long as it fits the theme!)
Here are some features of amazing and inspiring works that have a similar Urban Legends Theme:
We chose these features because we felt they might inspire you, and give you an idea of how Urban Legends can be photographed in a macabre manner. A big THANK YOU to all the amazing artists!
