Watermarked Images

Watermarked images will only be accepted if you have purchased the full image, and the photographer has left their logo on for advertising purposes only.

Images with a watermark directly across the subject will not be accepted WITHOUT a screenshot of the photographer's permission.

Example: The image with the watermark OVER the subject will be rejected, though the advertising watermark as shown in the second photo will be accepted. Please ensure you still have permission to submit the purchased photo.


  • Collages are to be pre-made by the entrant. If multiple images have been uploaded singularly, the top image will be uploaded ONLY.

We always encourage the competitor to make use of collages when they're permitted in a class, though overcrowding a collage can also work against you. Ensuring the judge can see each image will help in your scoring amongst the other entrants.
