A fine art photograph is any photographic image made with the intention of conveying some feeling, emotion or specific intention by the image-maker, but is generally not intended to be a documentary or commercial photograph. "It can be any combination of colour or b&w, creating an image that evokes emotion through photography in which one's mind and imagination are freely but competently exercised. The image should have its own vocabulary, convey ideas and be innovative and personal."
A variety of subject matter is accepted including abstracts, landscape, low light, macro, nature, portrait, still-life, street, wildlife, etc. The photographer can make enhancements in the camera (zooms, pans, multiple exposures, blurs, cropping) as well as modifications and enhancements using digital imaging software to evoke the emotion, be innovative, and personal in the overall presentation of the original image. Composites compiled from photographs taken by the entrant are acceptable. Digital black or white frames are permitted but not required.
- Images should be in JPEG format, maximum 1400 pixels on the horizontal x 1050 on the vertical in size
