Scavenger Hunt Rules

Here are the rules for this year's scavenger hunt. Judging is based on images that fit the category and that have a sense of humor or artistic quality to them. “Fit the category” is up to your creativity and interpretation, but the judges must be able to understand what you’re doing. There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards for each category. There is credit just for entering a category. So DON’T hold back!

  • Submit 1 photograph for each category

    • The 10 categories are listed above. Submit one photograph for each category.

    • You may submit fewer than 10 photos, but you get points for just entering a category, so it's best to try to submit something for each category.
       

  • Only 3 shots allowed​

    • ​You are allowed to shoot 3 shots per category. Select only 1 of the 3 to submit. The 3 shots must be the same subject.

    • Once you select the subject, that’s it. You can’t go find a “better”one. You can change angle, lighting, etc., as long as it’s the same subject.
       

  • Photos must be taken during the competition period

    • You may only submit photos taken between March 25th and April 20th.

  • Minimal post-processing

    • You can make minor tonal adjustments, correct white balance, resize, sharpen, and use selective editing tools available for local adjustments.

    • The following types of edits are not allowed: composites, cloning, rearranging subject matter post-shooting, and major photoshop work.
       

  • Image naming

    • Name each submission:
      category-name_your-intials.jpg

    • Example: A submission for the "clouds" category would be named
      clouds_chc.jpg
       

  • ​Regular competition submission rules apply
