Once a year we invite readers to put their creative and artistic hats on and create phony pictures that depict something paranormal -- ghosts, monsters, UFOs, etc. It's all in good fun, and I'm sure you'll enjoy these collections of preposterous, psuedo-paranormal pictures.
The 2004 edition.
The 2005 edition.
The 2006 edition.
The 2007 edition.
The 2008 edition.
This year's winner is Erick Garcia Salas, who created "Guatemala Stargate."
This year's winner is Kate Davies for he very well executed "Midnight UFO" picture. The picture has all of the characteristics of a "genuine" UFO photo, complete with just a little motion blur. I also like the subtle white beam emanating from the bottom of the craft. Congratulations, Kate.
Welcome to the photo hoax slideshow for 2012. This year's winner is "Strange Levitation" by Gunther Cox. Not only is Gunther's picture a very well-executed illusion -- it really looks like the items are levitating -- he provides an entertaining story to go along with it.
