Sections : ( Projected Images )

A. COLOUR (Projected Images): Entries must originate as photographs (image captured of objects via light sensitivity) made by the entrant on photographic emulsion or acquired digitally. Pictures on any subject including creative or experimental images can be submitted.

B. MONOCHROME (Projected Images): A Monochrome image is defined as having various shades of grey from black to white only. A monochrome image toned in a single color will remain a monochrome work. A black & white work fitting from the very dark grey (Black) to

the very clear grey (White) is a monochrome work with the various shades of grey. A black & white work toned entirely in a single colour will remain a monochrome work. Addition of any second colour is not permitted. Please try to send artistic images suitable for

monochrome theme, not just conversion of any colour image.

C. NATURE : (Projected Images) : Nature photography is restricted to the use of the photographic process to depict observations from all branches of natural history, except anthropology and archaeology , in such a fashion that a well-informed person will be able to

identify the subject material and to certify as to its honest presentation. The story telling value of a photograph must be weighed more than the pictorial quality. Human element shall not be present, except on the rare occasion where those human elements enhance the

nature story. Techniques that enhance the presentation of the photograph without changing the nature story or the pictorial content are permitted. All adjustment must appear natural. Authentic Wild Life is defined as one or more organisms living free and unrestrained in the

natural or adopted habitat. Therefore landscapes, photographs of zoo or game farm animals or any living subject taken under controlled conditions are not eligible for Wild Life competition.

E. PHOTO TRAVEL (Projected Images): “A Photo Travel slide, print or electronic file must express the feeling of a time and place, portray a land, its people, or a culture in its natural state, and has no geographical limitations. Ultra close-ups which lose their identity, studio-

type model shots, or photographic manipulations that misrepresent the true situation or alter the content of the image are unacceptable in Photo Travel competition.” No elements may be moved, cloned, added, deleted, rearranged or combined. No manipulation or

modification is permitted except resizing, cropping, selective lightening or darkening and restoration of original color of the scene. No special effect filters can be applied. The sharpening must appear natural.
