  • The definition for Open Competitions (see below) regarding image editing also relates to the Theme competition.
  • Submit images as close to this theme subject as possible.
  • Images which do not illustrate the theme could be disqualified by the Host Club who will consult with the Digital Open Competition Chair to make the final decision.


  • A variety of subject matter is accepted. 
  • The photographer can make enhancements in the camera (zooms, pans, multiple exposures, blurs, cropping) with modifications/enhancements using a digital imaging software program e.g., Photoshop, to improve the overall presentation of the original captured image e.g., improved contrast/tonality, enhanced colour. 
  • Techniques that dramatically change the presentation of the original captured image must be entered in the ‘Altered Reality’ Competition.

Enjoy the Competitions!
