This competition promotes the manipulation of photographs to create a fictional or conceptual image or photographic art. Primarily, altered reality is changing a normal photo in a creative way. The photographer can be creative by using of lines, form and colour, expressing ideas or feelings in a non-traditional style. This includes combining multiple images and elements in a final image. However, all components of the final image must have been photographed by the participant.
The original photograph must be predominant in the final photo. Manipulation can be in-camera, post-processing or a combination thereof. Images that are created totally electronically with no photographic origin are prohibited.
The subject matter is open - abstract, landscape, low light, macro, nature, portrait, still-life, street, wildlife, etc.”
