No birds should be compromised in any way, and photos should be taken in an ethical manner, without undertaking any unethical practices that cause any animal harm or distress. This includes birds with dogs, cats, and other animals. As we are advancing parrot welfare, no baby parrots should be used in the pictures. Birds should be in a harness or carrier if any outdoor pictures are taken.

 

Competition Guidelines:
The photographer must own the copyright to all images entered.
Submit Landscape or Portrait format images.
High-resolution images only.

Images must not have been digitally manipulated with the exception of the category: Creatively Parrot. For all other categories, this includes HDR frame stacking, stitched panoramas, images that have been manipulated by the addition, removal, or alteration (painting over, cloning, or blurring) of anything in the original subject and scene that were photographed, borders, signatures or watermarks, changes in color so significant that the processed colors are widely different from the original colors, changes in density, contrast, color and/or saturation levels and dodging and burning that significantly alter content by obscuring or eliminating information in the picture. Creatively Parrot images are free to use tools to achieve the desired outcome. No watermarks or borders should be used.

All images must be submitted electronically, ideally in JPEG format. You may be requested to resubmit a raw file within 3 days in order to advance in the judging process.
