Photography Official RulesCamera

PHOTOGRAPHY is the process of creating an image. The photographer (student submitting entry) is a person who captures their own thoughts and
ideas with a camera. By focusing on objects using various lenses, filters and light sources, photographers may demonstrate the use of photographic
techniques conventionally or digitally.

the photo to the theme. An explanation of the photography process/form
might be a useful addition to the artist statement. Whether an entry displays
use of technologies or a simple approach, it will be judged primarily on
how well the student uses his or her artistic vision to portray the theme,
originality and creativity.

Copyright: Use of copyrighted material, including copyrighted cartoon
characters or other such material, is not acceptable in any photography

to establish an association between the student and the
trademark/business/material, or influence the purchase/non-purchase
of the trademarked good.
