Please read carefully!
ARTISTIC & ABSTRACT
Familiar subjects seen in new ways, with fresh angles, unusual compositions, and alterations. Photoshop, software filters, and editing tools are encouraged in this category, but not required.
BLACK & WHITE
This category is for black-and-white or monochromatic photography that employs artful use of lighting and contrast for striking images that pop with drama.
Creative presentations of Nevada’s endless open spaces, from lonely roads and sweeping vistas, to dense forests and rushing streams. To stand out in this popular category, photos should feature unusually breathtaking scenery, employ advanced techniques, or have some other unique edge.
The flora and fauna that share our state's urban, rural and wild spaces with humans, from your rescue cat and rose garden, to Nevada’s diverse wildlife and abundant wild lands.
From portraits to action shots, these images convey the personalities, lifestyles, and passions of our state’s diverse population at work and play.
The proverbial “picture worth 1,000 words,” these editorial shots capture an event, happening, or situation, and have a certain narrative oomph.
SOME QUICK GUIDELINES
- While there's no limit on entries, please curate your submissions. In other words, if you've got three variations of one image, choose the best photo rather than submitting all three.
- Watermarks on your photos are not necessary, and tend to detract from the photos themselves when it comes to the judging phase.
- Plagiarized photos or photos of copyrighted images presented as original material will be immediately rejected.
