I like mdale13 idea, recreating existing pieces could be really fun. Maybe some older stuff like Bernini or some greco roman stuff!

All good ideas I reckon!
The anatomy topic could also extend to animal and plant too.

How about a Carnivale, Freakshow, Fairground topic?

I used to help come up with topics for a weekly art challenge on my college's forum. We used to use a random text generator to create a topic. You could choose how many words, whether they were nouns, adjectives etc. The topics were abstract but very open for interpretation. It was interesting to see how differently people interpreted the same phrase. The only problem would be if this style proves difficult for non-native english speakers.
An example of a different (the ones I used to use are no longer active) random text generator is:

http://www.seventhsanctum.com/genera...ame=quicktheme
Example: - Setting: cyberpunk/western. Theme:man-against-the-world/metamorphosis story

I'm sure there's plenty of other similar sites available
Just an idea

oh i like the chess pieces as living beings, aby arty, i kind of worked on that a little a while back. With that said:

1.Demons and fallen angels...if you actually look up demons, there is a list of MANY of them. Creative freedom is open and they are always interesting. This not only informs but provides a great challenge! Take a gander.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_theological_demons

2. Humans infused with objects or machine.

clothing sounds interesting, alot of zbrush work ive seen is nude, which i think is because clothing wrinkles are hard to get right, but a clothing competition would be good practice, and to see everyones wrinkle workflow would be usefull.

hmm. I wonder if we could do something silly, like take 3 random photos of people off Google (or wherever - could be photos of friends, colleagues, or even the 3DTotal staff - eek!), and cut those 3 photos into horizontal strips, separating the eyes, nose and mouth (I can do an example if no-one gets me ). and then: sculpt it!

I used to do this for paintings back in college (a loooong time ago) using photos from magazines and you can get some pretty cool results - surprisingly! using PS you can scale the photos up/down to get a good face shape, too ... perhaps you could even use animals, and mix men/women, adults/children ... ? just a thought anywho!
