Freestyle contests are designed to allow complete artistic freedom of expression. They do not follow the usual editing allowances and the standard Photo deck editing rules are set aside. Blending of multiple images using photo editing tools, textures and overlays, artistic effects including elements of illustration and lighting changes are all allowed. The finished image is what matters and how you achieve that is up to you. However, these contests are Photo deck contests and your photograph(s) must always remain the main subjects, other components are all allowed but should be supportive to the main photographs.
Freestyle: Circles - May 20th
Circles of any kind, stone circles, circus rings, abstract circle patterns, anything including circle shapes. Single shots or multi layered grungy round things, whatever you like, your wonderful image is all that matters so let's go circular!
Advanced: With A Price Tag 2018 - May 21st
Any subject matter you like "as long as it has a price tag" showing like the figurines in the themepost. We don't care about the price. So it could be an expensive automobile or penny candy.

Flowers, birds, bride dresses or snow as long as the image is mostly white.

Advanced: Automobiles 2018 - June 11th
We find them in dealerships, car shows, museums , parking lots and parades. Let's see them shiny and new, old and abandoned, polished or rusty but make us want a ride. Hot rods, antiques, elegant limos, jalopies, are all good subjects.
Advanced: Animals With a Rider 2018 - June 18th
Horses, camels, ostrich and any other beast of burden that is carrying a person.
Bonus: Surrealism - Date TBD
Surrealism through the lens can be pretty cool! Forced perspective shots, levitations, creative light painting - do whatever you want, as long as it's an effect created through traditional means. Find lots of inspiration here.
Please note that normal photo editing allowances and rules will still apply. We will however be a bit more allowing when it comes to cloning, meaning you are allowed to remove the things you need to use to create the illusion of an effect (such as strings or supports etc.), should you choose to use them.
