Halloween is becoming our online teams’ favorite theme for the quarterly competitions.
Last year, we held the Fearsome Fashion Contest, where team members submitted their pictures wearing Halloween costumes.
We were surprised by everyone’s creativity and this year is no different.
But instead of wearing costumes, everyone was encouraged to make a poster of an imaginary film. A picture of themselves had to be in the poster and they had to submit a synopsis of the film.
Below are some of the nominees and, of course, the winners of this competition.
For a very long time, a cursed mask always brought its horror and threat at the footstep of every household during the first of November. Whenever it comes out, this only means one life should be sacrificed for each family.
Ruth, a nurse in their small hometown, has witnessed a lot of victims being rushed to the hospital in the hope of saving them. She can see the traces of the mask in their faces, with dark lines spreading wildly consuming their flesh while blood flows relentlessly.
It was such a depressing scene to witness their loud cries and wailing while she’s trying to revive them. Still, no one survives. It was tiring and hopeless yet she’s still grateful it was not her family.

It was the very first time someone has voluntarily sacrificed a life. Can her pure heart break the curse of this mask? Can her love for her family allow her to survive even if it means fighting for her last breath?
