Who doesn't love a good friendly competition in Photoshop? We certainly do!
At PRO EDU we host what we call the "Community Assignment" which gives the same assignment to anyone who desires to enter to create an original piece of art based on the rules, which can often be vague.
It is up to you to take that assignment, interpret it, and submit your best work. All of the work that is entered that meets the criteria will be judged by a panel of judges at PRO EDU including staff, instructors, and artists. The winner will be chosen by a silent vote with the most points.
It's always okay to use stock imagery, but your concept has to be original and you must legally license your stock. Please submit any before and after for us to determine where you started and where you ended up. You may be asked to show your legal license of your assets.
Don't submit stuff that has nothing to do with this assignment. We know some of you still will, and we aren't sure why, but only photos that related to the assignment will be taken into consideration.
You must also submit a 3000 pixel (minimum) before and after image to us via THIS FORM. If you do not submit your before and after, we cannot accept your submission to win.
may the best composite win
