Welcome to Manip-Contest

Welcome to Manip-Contest.

This is a monthly contest group for manipulators. Every month you will be given a challenge to be manipulated, then judged and critiqued by your peers.
The main goal of this group is to improve your manipulation skills.

There is only one prize: recognition. :boogie: on the contests. We will have also occasionally contests with prizes :heart:

Advanced: One who has practiced manipulation for a while and has won one or more contests or awards.

Beginner One who has just started or may have been manipulating for awhile but needs more practice.

Non-competitive One who does not want to be judged but would like critiques.


Contest Rules

To each participant.

Each contest will be different and require different things to do. Please follow them carefully.
On each piece submitted the following must be included:

You must credit each stock photo used.
You must put a link to this contest.

If you participate in the contest you must:

Critique each and every participants work. Please check out the "How to critique" tips below.

Vote for the two you feel is the best.
One for advanced and one for beginner by sending me a note with a link to the chosen piece.

Thank you very much. :hug:

Hello ,
One day i had a dream of a woman wearing a castle as a crown on het head. The following day i started sketching and after a few weeks the first work in my series 'Petrefied' was finished.
At the moment I entered one of these drawings (Regina Bruggia [link]) in this facebook contest and it will be printed (if 'liked' enough) on a card (freely available in cinema, stores such as fnac, scholes).
I challenge you guys to help me win this contest.
So please manipulate every voter you can find to make me come out on top. ;)
1) click the picture (behind the link) [link]
2) 'like' it
Thanks a lot !
