- Images will be rejected if there is too much background noise (disturbing objects from the subject). Ask yourself: does it look ‘busy’ or not. We don’t want busy looking photographs.

- Please don’t submit several shots of the same object. Choose your best one and submit that.

- Please: NO heavily post-edited or manipulated photographs. We will accept textured photographs but if the image no longer looks like a photograph, it will not be accepted.
