Photo Submission Deadline

Friday, November 30, 2018 by 5:00 p.m.

 

Requirements

NO OTHER ALTERATIONS/EFFECTS ARE PERMITTED. The guidelines were set up so that participants don't Photoshop or alter the images, essentially we don't want a fabrication. We ask that you don't adjust the images so that they don't depict the original shot - for example, if you took a shot with a gray sky don't adjust the sky color to blue. We get a lot of questions about this every year, please obey the spirit of the rule and don't alter your photos.
