Check out all the details in the Strange Behavior article here.
The unexpected can delight or shock. It can be exciting or frightening.
It’s often funny. It’s never boring!
This challenge draws on one of the most popular artistic themes – unusual behaviors and relationships. Whether it’s a giant robot admiring a fluffy teddy or a sheep in wolf's clothing; a cow that thinks it’s a helicopter or a warrior going into battle dressed as a giant pink bunny – they all make you stop and think. They also stimulate discussion – what one person finds funny another thinks is demented. Unusual juxtapositions and humor allow us an unprecedented freedom of expression. They can also bring us closer as we laugh together and at ourselves.
Entrants are required to bring to life Strange Behaviors in the most entertaining, humorous and emotive way.
