Disturbing Photo Contest
I came across this contest this morning and I'm not exactly sure what to think:
In this contest, your goal is to take a photo of a normal or overweight person, and turn him/her into a person that's suffering from anorexia. The thinner, the better. Make the person almost scary, creepy thin. Good inspiration for this can be found in Stephen King's "Thinner".

often runs contests and offers some pretty nifty information and cool pics to wade through, all related to digital pics and photoshop. What you might find itneresting are all the comments participants on the site added about eating disorders from a "general Public" POV.
