Digital Competition

DIVISIONS

PICTORIAL: This division includes any picture not within the scope of a nature image. A close up study of nature or scenic in which the “hand of man” is not present are considered to be nature images, and are not eligible for entry in the pictorial division.

NATURE: Nature images must conform to PSA’s definition of a nature image (except for zoo or game farm animals as described below)

Eligible subjects include trees, wild flowers, weeds, grasses, fungi, ferns, mosses, animals or birds (except domesticated), reptiles, insects, fossils, weather, land/seascapes (without boats, roads, signs, or other human evidence), geological formations, etc. Banding is acceptable on birds. Ineligible subjects include scenics which show human artifacts (fences, buildings, power lines, etc.) and mounted specimens.

Where wildlife is depicted, the PSA standard shall be modified to allow photographs of zoo or game farm animals, restricted as follows: wildlife is defined as one or more organisms living free and unrestricted in a natural or adopted habitat.

Because the intent of a Nature image is to accurately depict a real subject, the degree of digital or darkroom manipulation should be minimal.

Entries: Up to 2 images per division.
