CAPA Digital Creative Altered Reality Competition

All editing techniques are permitted, including in-device and post-processing. The definition of “creative” altered reality is defined as “allows the photographer freedom to explore the possibilities of photographic art through the extensive manipulation of images and combination of images, but the photographic content must predominate.  An entrant may alter images either digitally or otherwise and art work or computer graphics which must have been created by the entrant may be incorporated, but the photographic content should predominate.  Additional content or layers must be the original work of the entrant. Images created totally electronically (with no photographic origin) are specifically excluded. Black and white, split toning, monochrome and colour images are acceptable.”

For this competition, there must be obvious manipulation which may change natural color and form.
This competition provides an opportunity for entrants to display their creativity using their
photography and editing skills. The VCC will submit 6 entries for the club competition.


The CAPA Digital Theme competition will be opened for submissions on September 7th, 2017 and will close on February 18th, 2018.

  2. sRGB colour space and have a maximum file size of 1.8 MB
