Here we are with Halloween just around the corner. Unlike the previous years, I haven’t had a chance to invest all the time I wanted to create that very special challenge. My true inspiration for this year’s Halloween challenge came to me in the form of a tweet on Twitter. NO, NOT from Trump, but from Jamie Lee Curtis.

Jamie Lee Curtis comes back to us in the feature (SCARY) Movie, HALLOWEEN. You’re probably wondering how this translates into a Photo Challenge? It’s very simple, this year we’re going to recreate a scene from your favorite scary movies and horror films in a family-friendly way. That means no gore, blood, nudity, or anything that would ruin a good night’s sleep. This image is perfect, leaving it all to the imagination.

Kevin, the disgruntled Baker gives us a great example of what we’re looking for…

The Call Is Coming From Behind You

Like myself, you may not be a horror movie fan. In the image below, Jessica managed to creep herself out with her own image. I have to admit I see the creepiness in it as well…


To complete your challenge you will have to recreate, re-enact, or simply create your own SCARY MOVIE SCENE

If you’re recreating, try and give us the original scene to compare to…

You will have ONE DAY, ONE DAY ONLY to post your image. You guessed it, Tuesday, October 31, HALLOWEEN 2017.

You basically have 20 days to plan, create and then post your image. This is all in good fun, so even if you don’t celebrate Halloween, it’s a special occasion to show us your creative ideas.

REMEMBER: This is make-believe so please don’t harm anyone, any animal, or anything in any way shape, or form.

The friendly community guidelines are pretty simple:

  • Post one original photograph (Your Image) for the Halloween Theme posted on this blog to Facebook, or Flickr (or both). Tag the photo #halloweenphotochallenge and #halloweenphotochallenge2017
  • The shot should be a new shot you took for the current Halloween theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.
  • Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2017 Halloween PhotoChallenge is Scary, Fun and Easy.
