Mile High Wildlife Photo Club

Monthly Competition Guidelines

Monthly competitions are open to all club members and are divided into two levels:

The Wildlife and Scenic categories are part of each competition. The Wildlife - Captive or Controlled and Creative categories alternate.


Images submitted in categories other than Creative may be enhanced or changed using any of the tools available in a post processing graphics editing program, except one cannot copy or significantly alter the primary subject or primary parts of the image in any way, nor can one import items from another image. The intent of the original image must be maintained. Images may be color, black-and-white, or toned (e.g., sepia).

There are no post processing restrictions for the Creative category. Creativity is encouraged.

Up to three images may be entered by each member, with a maximum of two in any one category.

If in doubt about the suitability of an image for a particular category, bring the image to someone on the competition committee for their recommendation prior to entering it. If approved, it may be entered into a subsequent competition.

Entries must be submitted according to the Digital Image Submission Guidelines.

Entries that do not receive an award (1st, 2nd, 3rd, or HM) may be re-entered in future club competitions.
