Clowns can be seen as either very funny or very creepy. Movies like IT and "The Joker" have forever changed the reputation of clowns! In this contest, your goal is to take a picture of a person and turn him or her into a clown.

Go for creepy, funny, heart-warming or over-the-top silly! The person has to be regularly dressed and without make-up in the original photo. Just make sure there is only one person in the photo and there is minimal distraction from the background and other objects.

We will ditch the anonymity rule for this contest, so you can use a picture of yourself if you prefer.

If you're looking for some inspiration, have a look at this contest from 5 years ago on Pxleyes: Clowns. It was won by Zizounai with the following entry:

PS: It's very important to vote on every entry, the more votes we get, the more accurate the rankings will be. Also, when you see something on someone's entry that can be improved, let them know. That way, we can learn new skills from each other!

PS 2: Ideas for future contests can be submitted here. The best ideas will be picked and turned into a contest. Make sure to clearly define the rules and objectives of the contest.

Ooops yes I won that contest in Pxleyes... But one day Hanabi told me that there was something wrong with the hat. It was too small indeed. Photoshop played a trick on me shrinking the clown's hat. So I have redone my clown, here it is:

We're starting to feel abandoned here.
Has this site become defunct or what?
