    Entries in this competition must be delivered through the web-based compo system as a Zip or RAR archive containing the following items:

    • The picture in 16:9 format, preferably and at least 1280*720 pixels. This is to ensure that the entry won't need scaling when shown on the bigscreen. This also means you should not submit an entry in portrait orientation.

    • You are allowed to stage your motive before taking the photo.
    • Your photo should be taken specifically for this compo.
    • Minor retouching (color/white balance, cropping and similar) in photo editing software is allowed, but keep it real. This is a photo compo, not a photo manipulation compo.

    You must have taken the photo yourself. Participation with photos taken by anyone else is not permitted, even with permission from the photographer.
