Quarterly Picture Editing Contest

The entry period for the 4th quarter is now open through January 20th, 2017. Entry information and links are below.

Guidelines

You may enter up to 8 total entries per quarter. These 8 entries can come from any of the print or digital divisions. A project can be entered in both divisions if it was published in both platforms well. Only jpeg (.jpg) images are accepted for this contest. PDFs, PNGs, TIFFs or RAW files are NOT accepted. Please resave PDFs into a jpeg format. Screenshots will usually be saved as .png files. Please convert those to .jpg.

Use the link for each category to enter. You must be logged into your member account to access the entry pages.

CATEGORIES

Print Single Page (PSP) –  A single printed page from a publication containing any type of photography (news, sports, feature, etc.) Each entry should showcase excellent use of photography, design and picture editing. Entry can be a page with multiple unrelated stories or an entry with one story.

Print Multiple Page (PMP) – Multiple printed pages from a publication containing any type of photography (news, sports, feature, etc.) Each entry should showcase excellent use of photography, design and picture editing. Entry should be primarily from one story over a series of pages.

Digital Site Page (DSP) – Entries in this category will typically contain several stories with several visual elements and will be judged on the use of photography, design and picture editing. Examples could be site home pages, digital section pages or blogs, but should NOT be special projects or photo galleries (see below Digital Single Story category for those types of entries.) Since pages change often, please enter a jpeg image of the screen shot in addition to the URL link.

Digital Single Story (DSS) – Entries in this category can be of news, feature, sports or other types of photographic coverage. Each entry should be a single topic or story presented on a digital platform. Entries can be website pages or photographic galleries. Enter the URL of the project and any special instructions for judges (i.e. that there are multiple pages, to judge from screenshots or to only judge the gallery on the page).

Digital Visual Innovation (DVI) – Entries in this category should showcase innovative ways of using photography on any digital platform including, but not limited to, mobile specific projects. Judges will look for both the quality of picture editing, design and use of photography AND will reward projects who push the boundaries of traditional publishing and visual storytelling in any way. Examples could include mobile-specific projects, Virtual Reality or Augmented Reality Projects, APPs or other innovative approaches to displaying photographs and visual storytelling. This category will be a place to recognize and reward risk-taking that pays off with new approaches to visual storytelling with photography.
