Yes, this is a competition group, but you're always being judged with members who are in the same level as you. Your gallery will be evaluate so that you're placed in an appropriate  level when you are accepted as a member, and you're able to move up to the next level as your skills improve. So join for the fun, for the challenges, for the prizes, but also be open to learn. For ManipulateThis is more then just an "submit anything" photomanipulation group.  It's a place where you can grow as a photomanipulator and as an artist.

If there is a spot left, it would be great if you could mention the CalendarProject.

The CalendarProject is a project that started in 2007 and only takes place from December 1st - 24th. It's all about free skins, mini tasks to win prizes and fun on a daily basis during that time.
But of course the preparation starts months before! And to always make it a success the help from the community is needed (organizing, featuring, prize donation, skin creation etc). This year even more help is needed to get the group - that was just founded this year - more known and maybe be able to get a SuperGroup.
