Images can be submitted in digital form only. If you would like to submit film/negatives, you must scan them into a digital format before you submit them.
Accurate focus, a clean camera lens, good lighting conditions, and proper camera settings are all required. If your image is not perfectly sharp or is a bit noisy, try to downsize the image. This can help prevent technical problems.
Avoid sending similar shots when only one is your favorite. Edit on your own. Keep batch sizes of similar subjects down to the bare minimum. Avoid sending us the same image with slight variations on the angle.
Also refrain from sending in the same image in color, black and white, sepia, and blue tone. The color image alone should suffice. In rare cases, if filters and color tones give the image a unique atmosphere, we will make an exception.
