Every month we will have a different "Theme." The purpose of these Themes is to encourage technical and creative growth. It is preferable, but not necessary, that the images be made during the current competition year. Images submitted into this Category must fit that month's Theme.

Images may be color, infrared, or monochrome.  

Images must be in jpeg format, no more than 1920 pixels wide, and no more than 1200 pixels high. 

The recommended color space is sRGB. 

There are no restrictions on digital editing. Cloning, filters, composite images, etc., are all allowed. 

All images used must have been taken by the maker. (For example, do not use a sky provided by Photoshop if you use the "Sky Replacement" tool.)

Use of clip art or other vector graphics is not allowed, as it is felt that those additions are more appropriate to graphic design than photography. 

Images generated by artificial intelligence are not eligible for entry.
