Muddy Photography contest
The Muddy Photography contest is looking for striking digital images to celebrate people, fun, and nature. Your images should highlight the actions of the life of a person: leisure activities, sports, home life, our time here on Earth, including portraits of people and wildlife in natural habitat, beautiful scenes, the relationship between people and nature, and people participating in sports. We will be looking at all types of photos, and even if yours don’t fit the category, feel free to enter anyway.
We are especially interested in images that showcase a person in action, activity, motion, and in leisure.
If you choose to include people in your submission, necessary releases from the individuals depicted may be necessary if Muddy Photography wishes to enter a contract with you (upon winning the contest and interest from Muddy Photography in using the photograph; details to be provided upon winning), and must be able to provide copies of those releases to Muddy Photography upon contract. Please be ensured the submitter still owns all rights to their photograph. Entrants must not submit images that involve any type of pornography, human nudity of subjects under 18 years of age, the willful harassment of wildlife, damage to the environment by the photographer, put any individual or animal in danger, or infringe on the rights of any other photographer or person.
All photographs should accurately reflect the subject matter and the scene as it appeared. Photos that have been digitally altered beyond standard optimization (removal of dust, cropping, reasonable adjustments to exposure, color and contrast, etc.) will be disqualified. Multiple exposures that have been combined to produce a single “High Dynamic Range” image are acceptable. Images that do not meet these requirements may or may not be judged at the judging panel’s sole discretion.
A small amount of detail must accompany all submissions, including the location the image was taken, and the name of the photographer(s).
You must title the email MUDDY PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST and attach the photo in the email, with your name and location in the main body of the email. Links to the photo are also allowable as long as you have proof the picture you are submitting was taken by you.
There are three categories:
