Portrait Challenge

Will you be stuck at home, social distancing, this Halloween? Is your costume closet withering away? Put your creativity to work and join THNOC online this October in re-creating your favorite portrait from our collection! We’ve selected 20 portraits for you to choose from, and we want to see your best imitations. This challenge is open to all ages and we encourage you to get creative with household items as props and costumes!

Select your favorite portrait from the list below and submit your homage by October 15. Our team will select a winning contender for each portrait from the submissions to build our next bracket, New Orleans Bracket Bash: Portrait Challenge Edition! The bracket will begin on Monday, October 26, and the finalists will go head-to-head on Friday the 30th. On Halloween, the winning photo will be shared on THNOC social media and the winner will receive a high-quality reproduction of the portrait from The Shop at the Collection.
