• What are we looking for?
    • Original images that make us sit up and take notice.
    • Images of less-frequently photographed species. We love our lions and cheetahs but our aardvarks need their time in the limelight too.
    • We judge images on three aspects: technical ability, overall aesthetics and storytelling ability.
  • Subject matter
    • Only subject matter taken inside Erindi Private Game Reserve will be eligible for entry.
    • Image can include mammals, reptiles, birdlife, insects or flora.
    • No images taken prior to 1 November 2017 will be considered.
    • Harassment of both people and animals or destruction of the environment in pursuit of an image will not be tolerated.
  • Image editing
    • Images must accurately and realistically represent the natural world. Minimal editing will be allowed within the following guidelines: Normal processing of RAW and JPEG images (minor adjustments to colour, contrast, gradients, sharpening, noise reduction and HDR) are acceptable. HDR composites and panoramic stitching will be allowed so long as the final image bears a realistic resemblance to the original scene. No cloning, additions or removal of subjects from an image will be allowed.
    • We will request the original RAW or JPEG file if any queries arise.
  • Rename your images
    • Save your image under the title (your name_image title).
  • Sending us your images
    • Please note that we accept a maximum of three images per entrant.
    • Once your entry has been submitted you will receive a confirmation email.

 

Closing date for entries is 31 March 2019.
