Pryce: Macabre Halloween Challenge 2.0

Now with all the festivites of Blogger Classifieds Anniversary concluded, it's time to celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of the

💀 Pryce: Macabre Halloween Challenge 💀 ! Last year's submissions were deliciously demented! Eerily twisted in surrealism which invoked fear and unnerved the unexpected! The Grimm Brothers and Samhain himself, would've been proud of the creativity of all the participating Photographers. Each surpassed expectations as they delve within the depths of their mind to capture some of the most ghastly, intensely sinister imagery, which left us enamored and emotionally disturbed.

 

Remember this theme is dark! It's NOT about painted faces, costumes and the fun of Halloween. No! The Macabre Challenge is sweet horrific and provocative imagery that resonates in the minds of viewers. Your objective is to unnerve us while simultaneously causing us to admire the beauty of what you've captured.

 

EVERYONE is welcomed to participate, as long as you are comfortable with dark/macabre expressive imagery, pose manipulation, shadow and light exercises. Please read over the guidelines below and bring your imagination to life.
