May I submit more than 12 photos by completing more than one entry form?
No. Each artist is limited to one entry.
Should I submit twelve photos from one series, or can I include work from a variety of projects?
The selection of photos is entirely yours. We don’t know exactly how the judges make their decisions. But in our opinion, a coherent series generally makes a stronger impression.
May I submit photos depicting nudity or other controversial subjects?
We will gladly accept any images that are not blatantly exploitative or overtly offensive.
Will you accept analog submissions such as slides?
Unfortunately we are only able to accept digital images submitted using our online form.
