I thought that might be the problem. Thanks for pointing that out

Is it possible to do 2 images? Not 2 entries, just images. Where each image is a part of a larger story?

Isn't that basically like subitting 2 images?

If you stick them together side by side, I guess you can, but not separatedly

I agree about the confuse description, it seems so vague and broad....

Yeah, I was wondering about that as well (although hover-cars are technically possible and do exist)

Q: Can I base my main character on a celebrity, i.e. use celebrity photos as reference?

Q: Can my final image contain human blood or droid blood in bruses and injuries?

ANARKY said it best. But I'll attempt another explaination ...

The Past = Future History
Current Time = Future History
Future Time = Future History


Or leave out the "future history" phrase if it's confusing for you ...
Quote:
Your challenge is to conceive and create an image that could potentially become part of future history as one of those iconic spectacular images that grasps viewers by the throat; that quickens the pulse; that excites and scares at the same time.
... this doesn't change any guideline of the challenge rules.

Obviously some spectacular moments such as Ali gettting the KO are so well visually documented it would be futile to attempt an interesting and original image of the occasion, but is it allowed to be based on true events?
becomes more of an editorial piece than fantasy this way.

Can you gather inspiration from an event that happened already? Yes. Can you illustrate the event as it happened? Yes. Does it make your image more than a documentary or Editorial? No. The decisions are yours, but I'd recommend pushing your imagination and trying to do something unique.

A: For reference? Yes, but don't copy or paint over a photo to the degree where the original photo(s) will be identified easily. Quick way to get yourself removed from the final judging phase.

A: Yes. Injuries and blood aren't offensive to most people. Use your judgement here.

If they are related to each other I don't see why not.

Read the rules, instructions and inspiration pages again. I believe this is all covered.

No, not copying a photo. Just basing my character on a celebrity. For example if I want to express a droid girl flying (literally) and I want her to look like Pamela Andersen for instance. Just look like, not exactly her person. I just want to use some facial features that are physically unique.

Anarky made it even confusing actually.

But that is the main problem I actually posted and I can't ignore it just like that. I know it's future history, but how I understand your explanation...EVERYTHING is future history and there is no past history...that's weird. I do not want to sound harsh, but I really do not get it.
