Submissions as email attachments, on CD, or prints are not allowed in this competition and will not be returned.

Images will be viewed by the jurors as RGB images; therefore Adobe RGB or SRGB profiles should be used.
File names may contain a maximum of 25 characters, not counting .jpg. The file name may not include characters such as #, $, &, periods or other similar characters as part of the file, and should start with your name, then your first initial, and then the name of the file. There will be only one period in the file name, just prior to the file extension (i.e. Smith_J_filename.jpg). It's important to follow these instructions about the file name to allow the right storage into the image database.
Image title may not exceed 40 characters. Please note that image title is the name of the artwork, not the file name.
