Q. Am I eligible to enter?

If you’re an amateur, enthusiast or professional photographer, you are eligible to enter regardless of your location.

Q. What about my copyright? Will you sell my images?

Each entrant retains the copyright to their images, and we will not sell them. We may occasionally display your images in our advertising and social media when in association with this competition.

Q. What are the image specifications?

We require your images sized to exactly 1500px on the longest side at 72dpi. All entries must be converted to an sRGB color space and saved as a JPEG no larger than 3MB. We recommend saving your images with a JPEG compression quality setting of 10.

Q. Do I need a model release for each person in a crowd or street image?

Model Releases are required by law in most countries when photographing people. Obtaining a model release from each person in a crowd is nearly impossible. It is standard practice to display a ‘Crowd Release’ sign at the time of photographing. While we do not need to see proof of this at the time of your entry, we may request it at any stage.

Q. I need help sizing my images for the competition.
