    Have lah... this year's theme is slightly different....
    still Life is Great... but with Nature...
    Try googling 'great eastern life is great with nature photo competition'...
    The best photographer is one who is inspired by the innate nature of his subjects.

    Hi!

    Can i check what they meant by composite photographs, multiple exposure, and images manipulated electronically which distort the reality of the image or otherwise, will be disqualified.

    The above statement means no photoshop?


    TIA!

    i think you are allowed to make minor edits (e.g.: exposure, colour, etc.) but not huge changes. you also cannot submit panos, bracketed shots (?) etc.

    also, please note "The winning entries shall remain as property of the organises/sponsors, who reserve the right to use them in any manner deemed fit, without payment of any fee." Point 7 of the T&C. i see that this is becoming increasingly common among competitions...

    I think this point is bullshit.Just shows how much respect the photographers get. I mean if it were for competition publicity purposes it would be okay...but now it becomes their property totally...

    Hmm... then how do we know when we are overstepping into the line??? I mean, if minor adjustments are allowed, how minor?

    i guess you have to base it on your own judgement. compare the edited and unedited pictures. if they look like two different pictures, you know that you have done too much. the editing should be done to 'beautify' further the picture, or possibly 'rescue' the exposure/poor WB or colour. it should not be done to manipulate and change the picture entirely

    it says the photo becomes the property of the organisers. but does this mean the copyright also belongs to them? it is not stated specifically. anyone knows? vince?

    if you are so worry and concern about your photo copyright, it is best not to participate.
