The handbook is 12 pages, printed double-sided. We HIGHLY suggest that you print and review a current copy of the handbook.
The cliffnotes version of two main changes:
- You may only submit ONE image in the assigned subject competition
- There is now a Creative Image Artistry category. This category is meant to encourage artistry and creativity. The image artistry category will consist of electronic images which are enhanced as much as the maker desires. Types of effects include, but are not limited to, artistic filters, digital painting, montages, composites, mylar, infrared, black light, image out of the frame and other such creative effects which may be used freely. The end product may be the result of in-camera and/or post-processing creativity on the part of the maker. It is the discretion of the maker to subject an image into either open or image artistry.
