Frequently asked questions

Here are some questions that might help you. We'll be uploading further questions during the course of the competition so keep checking back. If you want to ask a question send us an email.

1. How many images can I upload?

You can upload up to 5 images.

2. Can I change or delete my images once I have uploaded them?

Yes! You can change or delete any of your images, plus your caption text, or tag at any time up to the closing of the competition.

3. Can I upload images taken by friend?

No! Any images you upload must be your own photograph - they must not have been taken by another photographer or be an image you have found on the internet. Ask your friend to upload his/her own image.

4. I live outside of the UK, can I enter?

Yes! We encourage entries from the United Kingdown and from all countries outside of the UK.

5. Can I submit photographs I took years ago?

It depends...Images should have been taken within the last three years from the competition closing date - so since 30th June 2016.

6. Can I add extra information about my image?

Absolutely! When you upload your image you can add a caption and additional text. So tell us where the image was taken, what it shows and how you took it, plus anything else you want to tell us. We'll be judging your image but your text will be helpful if its selected when we need to write a caption.

7. Do you take black and white images?

Images in colour or monochome can be submitted and we are happy for these to be done in camera or the conversion to black and white can be done in imaging editing software such as Photoshop, Lightroom, Elements, etc.

8. What size should my images be?

Only JPG files will be accepted. If you are having trouble please check all images are a maximum of 2500 pixels wide (if landscape) or 2500 pixels high (if portrait) and a maximum size of 5Mb in JPG format. Images should be in sRGB colour space.
