C Children and Youngsters
You can submit any pictures of nature in this category. Image manipulation is allowed. The upper age limit is 16 years old (if you turn 16 during the year of the competition). There is no lower age limit.
File size, file naming and data transfer
File size of the pictures: To participate in any category in the competition, you must submit digital files (jpg files) of the highest possible quality. The largest size of each image must be 1920 pixels (width or height). The files can even be digital files from slides or negatives. A maximum of four (4) entries can be entered into each category. Submissions to the competition must only be sent in digital format online. NB! The application form has to be filled in separately for each category you participate in.
File naming: category.number of picture.name of picture.alias of photographer.jpg (A.1.otter.gyrogearloose.jpg). NB! You cannot add numbers after the .jpg extension. The photographer’s name, e-mail address and phone number should be added in the metadata of each file.
The picture can be converted into black and white or colour-toned. Making panoramas, HDR, and focus stacking is permitted in landscape pictures. The competition picture in this category should, however, be as natural as possible and truthfully interpret and represent the atmosphere and situation of when the picture was taken.
The format of the picture is free.
You do not need to send original files when entering the competition. All the awarded photographers will be asked to send the original photo/original file in the beginning of August, in week 31 at the latest. The original file has to be sent to the jury within a week of the request. The original file is the original untouched camera file: RAW, DNG, CR2, NEF, TIF, etc. In scans of slides and negatives the original file is the slide or negative.
