Limited Photos Club New Year Photo Contest

New Year's Photo Contest - First Prize Winner Gets $3,500


Limited Photos Club’s New Year’s Photo Contest is a photographic contest open to professional and non-professional photographers from all around the world. An entry may be excluded from the contest where the Organizing Committee, in its discretion, should consider it not in accordance with the rules and conditions of the competition.

Digital post-processing procedures
You may use digital post-processing to optimize an image, and you may crop images slightly, but you are not permitted to add or remove key elements of the composition. Brightness, contrast, color balance can all be adjusted. Dust spots, minor elements, etc. can be retouched. Images can be sharpened before printing. Post-processing, which could realistically be achieved in a darkroom will be accepted but jurors have the discretion to reject any entry which has been, in their opinion, over-manipulated and therefore removing the integrity of the original image.

Jury Panel Rules
Entries will be evaluated by a nominated Jury panel. The judging is anonymous. Judges are not aware of participants’ names or details. The juror will assess the images for visual impact, composition, originality, technique, and creativity and the ability to communicate a message, a feeling, or an emotion. The selected Jury panel represents a broad spectrum of photographers and of editors. All images participating are judged online by the entire Jury Panel, thus allowing all jurors to view the images independently, regardless of where in the world they are. Winners will arise from the highest image score. Entries with the highest final score will be declared as winners.

All participants will receive a report card via e-mail with entry scores. All results will also be published on the website of the competition.
