What is the "Anti-Cliche" Challenge? It's a challenge to encourage photomanipulators to take overly used stock photo(s) and come up with a concept that completely changes the cliche stock to look completely different.
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, they 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.
In addition, to make this a fair challenge, there are two 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 1- February 28. All of the details and information can be found at the The Anti-Cliche Challenge journal.
