Subject: The Great Outdoors.  It’s up to you how you interpret it but we’re looking for stunning photographs taken outdoors.

 

Rules:

 

  • Professional photographers are not eligible to enter. For the purposes of this competition, a professional photographer will be considered to be someone who makes more than 10% of their annual income from photography.

  •  Images must be no bigger than 5mb in size and should be saved as the title of your image.

 

  • All entries must be the candidate’s own work. 

 

  • Digital photography does allow for some image enhancement. You can enter images that have had spots, scratches or other blemishes removed. You can have worked on the colour or enhanced the image for the sake of the composition. You can also crop the image to improve composition.  We will not accept entries that superimpose elements photographed separately onto an image.

 

  • Each person can enter up to 3 images, each one accompanied with: the candidates ‘Name’, ‘Section’, email address and a ‘Contact telephone number’.  We will not share this information with a 3rd party and will only communicate with you regarding the competition.

 

  • Entries for the ‘youth’ section must include their parents’ / guardians’ email address and a contact number.  They must have sought permission from their parent / guardian to enter. If we need to make contact regarding an entry into the youth category we will only do so via their parent / guardian.
