There are three categories in the competition:
Category 01 Birds: (where the dominant subjects are avian)To enable handling and organization of entries please name each file as described below:
Category 02 Mammals: (where the dominant subject/subjects are mammals)
Category 03 General: (any other nature image that is not in category 01 or 02)
Ribbons will be awarded for first, second and third places and honorable mention in each of the above categories. One image will be chosen as "Best in Show", as well as a second and third place. Scoring ties for 1st, 2nd or 3rd will be re-judged for placement.
For images submitted that do not indicate the specific category we will arbitrarily assign a category based on the dominant subject.
Your file name should start with your name, then the title. This will make it easy to sort all of the submissions by the photographers' names. Thank you.
Save files as high resolution JPEGs (.jpg).
Note: Do not save as jpg files during editing because image quality will be reduced. Save as a jpg file once, and only after doing all sharpening, colour corrections and editing changes.
