Landscape Competition - Official Rules

The Club may hold two landscape competitions in a year (Natural and Urban).

A Natural Landscape is a medium to wide field of view image—as opposed to a detail or closeup—of outdoor environment incorporating elements such as mountains, canyons, lakes, snow, rivers, forests, fields, the sea, and natural geological formations. Evidence of human presence such as structures or cultivation—even people—is welcome, provided the presence of these elements complements and contributes to the natural content of the image—as opposed to dominating it—by helping the image convey a stronger sense of the scale, wonder, beauty, and power of the outdoor world.

Urban Landscape is a medium to wide field of view image of our man-made environment and the collections of structures in which so much of the human race lives and works. It seeks to capture the larger patterns of the urban environment in which surround us.

Any photograph found not to comply with the above and below rules (or to the given theme if applicable) should be marked as not adhering to theme. Questions about this competition should be addressed to the Landscape group.
