Processing rules:
  • No restrictions. If you don't do much Photoshop, that's fine, but please don't mark down those who do, as a principle.
  • Small, unobtrusive watermarks are allowed, and should not be penalised in voting. Please don’t add any other text.
  • Recommended image size is Facebook standard; 2048 pixels on the long side, but the challenge host (and voters) will tolerate other sizes.
  • Constructive comments welcomed - on any entry - at any time after the challenge has opened for submissions.
Capture date rules:
  • No restrictions.
Additional rules:
  • You must be the author of the image you enter.
  • If you enter, please vote (whether you are disqualified, or not).
  • If you vote, please vote fairly.
  • The challenge host will decide whether the entry is strong enough to be admitted to voting may disqualify any that seem not to.
  • Please don't enter an image that has been entered into another challenge recently, or several times before. The challenge host may disqualify such entries at their discretion.
  • Be original, be creative.
  • Please give the image a title and a description.
  • Put a piece of your own soul into your entry; a simple record of someone else's art is unlikely to attract a high score.
  • You may enter two (2) images.
