How does the judging process work?
We are using a ‘blind judging’ system where judges will not be aware of any information about the authorship of specific submissions. Judging for each competition will be comprised of two stages: (1) initial screening, and (2) judge scoring. Initial screening ensures that submissions meet a minimum level of technical quality and conform to the specified image requirements. Submissions that pass the initial screening will be forwarded to the competition’s panel of judges for scoring.

Copyright remains with the owner at all times. Submitted images may be used online and in print for promotional purposes. The photographer’s name will always be credited.
