The first digital image competition of the year will be Nature/Open.

Submission Deadline: September 24

Judge: Jim DeLuco (bio below)

Generally, our category guidelines are pretty open, but for Nature, we use the Photographic Society of America (PSA) Nature rules, which state that the nature story is the primary driver of image quality, and the hand of man cannot be present unless it is a critical part of the nature story. Also, please review the PSA rules concerning the amount of editing that is permitted.

See our Competitions page for general information and submission specifications.

Please submit photos via Dropbox.

  • You must be a member in good standing to enter. Please pay dues now if necessary.

  • Be sure to log out of DropBox before submitting your images.
