● This information will also be useful when writing the various parts of the catalogue, or if necessary to inform the members of the jury.

13. Definition of nature photography:

Nature photography is restricted to the use of the photographic process to depict all branches of natural history, except anthro­pology and archeol­ogy, in such a fashion that a well-informed person will be able to identify the subject material and certify its honest pre­sentation. The story telling value of a photograph must be weighed more than the pictorial quality while maintaining high technical quality. Human elements shall not be present, ex­cept where those human elements are integral parts of the na­ture story such as nature subjects, like barn owls or storks, adapted to an environment modified by humans, or where those human ele­ments are in situations depicting natural forces, like hurricanes or tidal waves. Scien­tific bands, scientific tags or radio collars on wild animals are permissi­ble. Photographs of human created hy­brid plants, cultivated plants, feral animals, domestic animals, or mounted specimens are ineli­gible, as is any form of manipulation that alters the truth of the photographic state­ment.

No techniques that add, relocate, replace, or remove pictorial ele­ments except by cropping are permitted. Techniques that enhance the presenta­tion of the photograph without changing the nature story or the pictorial content, or without altering the content of the origi­nal scene, are permit­ted including HDR, focus stacking and dodging/burning. Techniques that remove elements added by the camera, such as dust spots, digital noise, and film scratches, are allowed. Stitched images are not permitted. All al­lowed ad­justments must ap­pear natural. Color images can be converted to greyscale monochrome. Infrared images, either direct-captures or derivations, are not allowed.

Images used in Nature Photography competitions may be divided in two classes: Nature and Wildlife. Images entered in Nature sec­tions meeting the Nature Photography Definition above can have landscapes, geologic formations, weather phenomena, and extant organisms as the primary subject matter. This includes im­ages taken with the subjects in controlled conditions, such as zoos, game farms, botanical gardens, aquariums and any enclo­sure where the subjects are totally dependent on man for food.

Images entered in Wildlife sections meeting the Nature Pho­tography Definition above are further defined as one or more extant zoo­logical or botanical organisms free and unre­strained in a natu­ral or adopted habitat. Landscapes, geologic formations, photographs of zoo or game farm ani­mals, or of any extant zoo­logical or botanical species taken under con­trolled conditions are not eligible in Wildlife sections. Wildlife is not limited to ani­mals, birds and insects. Marine subjects and botani­cal sub­jects (including fungi and al­gae) taken in the wild are suit­able wildlife subjects, as are carcasses of existing species. Wildlife im­ages may be en­tered in Nature sections of Exhibi­tions.
