Photographers are invited to submit up to 5 images in each of the following eleven categories:
architecture, editorial, fashion/beauty, fine art, general photography, nature/landscape, portrait, product, up-and-coming, wedding/social and, for the first time, wildlife.

One Master will be chosen for each of the eleven categories.
