Abstract - not realistic; little or no pictorial representation; emphasis is on color, shape or spatial relationships.

Altered Reality - the alteration of a scene or subject so that it is obviously unrealistic. The image being altered must begin as a single original photo taken by the contestant. The special effects may be done with an image editor (e.g. Photoshop) or by any other means at the photographer’s disposal, as long as the result depicts a significant deviation from reality. For example, simply applying a soft focus filter to the image does not make it qualify.

Architecture - design & style of a man-made structure or object.

Children - individual or group. Teenagers may be placed in People or Children categories. Contestant makes the call.

Cityscape - image must be out of doors photo, taken either day or night, in a city setting. Cityscape image may contain elements that qualify it for other categories. Contestant makes the call.

Flora - plants or flowers, as the subject.

Humor - captured image that generates humor.

People - individual or group, including portraiture.

Photo Journalism - tells a story or generates strong emotion. If neither of these elements is present, then consider another category. For this category only, you may attach a note with your entry form letting us know the story or emotion you captured.

Scenic - natural scene of land, with the various objects it contains. Image may contain elements that qualify it for other categories, but the contestant views the natural land scene as the stronger content.

Still Life - inanimate objects found or purposely arranged in a unique order.

Waterscape - natural scene of water, with the various objects it contains. Image may contain elements that qualify it for other categories. Contestant makes the call.
