The 2014 Zombie Pinups Zombie Valentine Photo Contest Has Begun!

In 2012, the Zombie Valentine Online Photo Contest was resurrected and judged by Face Off's Matt Valentine.

In 2013, we had two Face Off judges - Michael Faust and Season 4 winner J. Anthony Kosar.

For 2014, we've upped the ante once more. This year's Zombie Pinups Zombie Valentine Online Photo Contest will be judged by Face Off alumni Beki Ingram, RJ Haddy and Roy Wooley!

So here’s the deal: Send your best Zombie Pinups photo(s) to with the subject header “BE MY ZOMBIE VALENTINE 2014”; be sure to include the following information:
  • The name of the model in the photo
  • Your name, if you’re not the model (and if you’re not the model, please include your relationship to the model/photo(s))
  • Photographer’s name, if not you
  • Makeup artist’s name, if not you
  • Any other pertinent credits
As ever, we’re looking for that perfect mix of classic pinup style with gruesome zombie makeup. Splashing a little blood on your face and posing in lingerie won’t cut it (and god bless all of you who’ll do that anyway) – the photo that will win will (A) display a classic, Vargas-style pinup aesthetic and (B) top-notch zombie makeup effects. Look through the galleries and pay particular attention to the original Zombie Pinups, and those who’ve won the contests we’ve had in the past. So get to submittin’ – this contest runs from NOW through February 10th, 2014; the winner will be posted on Valentines Day, February 14th. Naturally, photos submitted will potentially be posted in the galleries of AND WHAT WILL THE WINNER WIN?
