Contest rules

These contest rules apply to the all the corresponding contests below. If you are unsure about what's allowed or what a specific contest entails you're more than welcome to ask the photo quartermasters; MrsHjort, mickey2bagz, Defyaugury or pixelpusher.

Advanced contests:
All entries must abide by the entry requirements as stated in the FAQs.

Bonus contests:
All entries must abide by the entry requirements as stated in the FAQs. Sometimes, Bonus Contests may allow you to use methods or techniques that are not allowed by default. If the rules differ from the ordinary ones in any way, it will be stated so in the contest description.

Freestyle contests:
Freestyle contests are designed to allow complete artistic freedom of expression. They do not follow the usual editing allowances and the standard Photo deck editing rules are set aside. Blending of multiple images using photo editing tools, textures and overlays, artistic effects including elements of illustration and lighting changes are all allowed. The finished image is what matters and how you achieve that is up to you. However, these contests are Photo deck contests and your photograph(s) must always remain the main subjects, other components are all allowed but should be supportive to the main photographs.


Advanced: Trick Shots - CONTEST OPEN
Trick Shot
No photoshop here and the standard editing rules apply. Show us a picture that one might think was manipulated.
Comments as to how you pulled it off would be most appreciated though by all
Two whole weeks to do this one guys!

Advanced: Shadows - March 25th
The shadow need not be the subject of the image but we want to see shots where the shadows contribute to the strength of the image. For instance by serving as a leading line, by setting a mood or telling us the time of day.

Advanced: Hats and Headwear - April 8th
Hard hats, Party hats, Sunday go to church hats. Plain and ornate, related to one's profession or current activity. Historic hats, On a store shelf, a mannequin , being worn or not, If it's intended to be worn on one's head show it to us.

Advanced: Gardens Galore - May 6th
Gardens Galore
In your backyard , in your neighbors yard , at the park or local nursery. In bloom or not, show us a view that would make us want to come and stroll around.

Bonus: Surrealism - Date TBD
Surrealism through the lens can be pretty cool! Forced perspective shots, levitations, creative light painting - do whatever you want, as long as it's an effect created through traditional means. Find lots of inspiration here.
Please note that normal photo editing allowances and rules will still apply. We will however be a bit more allowing when it comes to cloning, meaning you are allowed to remove the things you need to use to create the illusion of an effect (such as strings or supports etc.), should you choose to use them.
