Welcome to the NB Album Contest #182: [NB Special]
The theme for contest #182 is a unique twist on a previous, special theme (#172). Just like the contest from several months ago, each album will be based on personal selection of previously used themes. However, the catch is that once a primary theme is selected, a second theme from another contest will serve as the sub-theme. For example:  red (#175) + strange animals (#139);  manga (#83) + friendship (#113). The only invalid theme is 'random', since there is plenty enough to select from. If you have any questions, please contact Pekoms or Nefertari. Enjoy!
TLDR: Pick any two past themes, combine them, and create your own unique album.
This contest's purpose is to judge the best job a member can do in creating an album under a specific theme.
Before you submit make sure you read the rules. Discuss anything about the AotW contest here: Discussion.
⫷ How to make your album! ⫸
1 | Every month a new theme will be announced and you will have to create your album based on that theme, however, you also need to choose a style for your album. It can be anything (black & white, secondary theme, etc), but you have to chose a style and mention that style in the title of your personal album, like this: "AotW #1, black & white".
2 | Your personal album submission may include 12-18 pictures, no more - no less, and all pictures must adhere to the forum's rules. If one or all your pictures are custom made, please mention so, under every picture, as a comment.
3 | After you create your personal album, you are free to edit it until the submission time ends; I'll check the time your pictures are edited. If for some reason the albums on NB don't work, feel free to use a photobucket or any other website to make the album in. Just make sure it still adheres to the rules and make sure you can make albums.
⫷ How your album will be judged! ⫸
♦ Creativity: Was your particular style not only suitable, but demonstrative of 'thinking outside the box'?
♦ Originality: Do not, under any circumstance, copy another member's submission, including old contests.
♦ Appealingness: Is the album drawing attention and interest, or does it make some viewers uncomfortable.
♦ Image Search: Please, don't just take the very first image you may stumble across doing a google search.
