It’s October, and you know what that means - pumpkin flavored everything and trick or treaters knocking at your door! Halloween is celebrated on the last day of October each year and it is believed to be the night where the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest. It originates from a celtic tradition where people would light fire and dress up to ward off ghosts - similar to what we do today. This month, we're giving you the chance to get creative with this holiday's theme, and put your own spin on one of the most iconic Halloween traditions- the haunted house!

Your Task:
For this contest, you must graphically design a HINT-themed Haunted House for Halloween! Your design must correspond to one of the HINT Forums. Be sure to read the rules carefully below in order to ensure your submission meets all the requirements.

Rules:

State the forum that you have chosen (Clubs, Games, Fandom, Magical Theories or Enterprises)
You must use two elements in your design to represent that forum.
You must use seven elements in your design relevant to Halloween.
In a minimum of three sentences, explain the elements of your graphic design and how they are related to Halloween and the forum you chose.
If using photo manipulation, you MUST reference sources you used to manipulate an image.
This contest will end on October 24th at 11:59pm HEX time. Entries should be owled to HINT Forums.
Entries will be judged for first, second, and third places. All other entries will be randomized for fourth and fifth place prizes.


Prizes:

1st place: Dark Marked House Playset + 4000 HP
2nd place: Pumpkin Charm + 3000 HP
3rd place: Spooky Every Flavor Bean + 2000 HP
4th place: 1000 HP
5th place: 1000 HP


Please feel free to ask questions in this thread, or by owling one of our HINT Moderators. Happy designing, and good luck!

Okay I’m new to photo manipulation...what does

If using photo manipulation, you MUST reference sources you used to manipulate an image.

Like if I use PicArt... do I have to state every picture I used to combine to get my final photo...

Sorry. Can someone show me an example so I understand this rule better

Hi there @Kellers22 thank you for your question.

When using photomanipulation (using existing photos and combining them together to create an overall new image), we are just asking that you give links as references to the photos that you used.

So, for example, your submission might be;

image
explanation
References:
pumpkin photo - link
base of house - link

etc. etc. Let me know if that helps.

My degree is in English, so I was raised on MLA. I had to do a little APA in grad school, but I was too far gone by then. lol

I had MLA grilled in me in high school and I'm terrified to learn another version.
But maybe it'll relieve my strong dislike for MLA

I didn't like any of them, but if it must be done I'm all for sticking to what I know and not having to learn anything new.

Don't be lol, my professor chose to do that. We could have just done Chicago. Also, we are so setting a bad example about not chatting in the info threads. 😂

Does it have to be specifically a house, or could it be a different type of building like a mall or office?

@Spark It can be a different type of building as well, as long as it meets the requirements in our rules.
