The Amateur Award Jury

The jury focuses, above all, on the quality of the photograph (focus, exposure, composition, etc.) and how well the idea behind the photograph meets the requirements of the competition. The photograph must be good in every respect: from its suitability for the selected category to its composition. In order for a photograph to be shortlisted, the following criteria must be met:

  • The photograph must be a suitable size: at least 1,920 x 1,080 pixels.
  • There must only be one image in each file; no collages.
  • There must be no frame, graphical elements or evident image manipulation.
  • There must be no text on the image (e.g. the photographer’s name or a copyright notice).
