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 judge 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. 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. You get points for 3rd, 2nd, and 1st place. Happy to see submissions for the challenging Bonus Word, but it is only used in the score in the case of a tie across the other 10 photos.

  • 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 April 22nd and May 17th.

  • 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:
    The word list above specifies the names you should use for each category if the category name is more than a single word. Example: A submission for the "Curve or spiral" category would be named

  • Regular competition submission rules apply
    Submit images as sRGB jpgs
    1920 pixels in long dimension
    No borders
