Judging Criteria 

What are the judges looking for?


The photo should tell a story or make the viewer curious about the events surrounding the moment of the photo

Winning photos are free of problems with exposure, sharpness or noise.

Judges will be stopped by powerful images. Look for pictures with good actions, reactions and emotions, interesting lighting, peak action, unusual and different situations and storytelling moments.

Photos that are only slightly different from previous winners won't be chosen.

Sending multiple copies of the same image or similar images is not a successful technique. Send us your single best image of a subject. Crop your photo for maximum impact before submitting.
