This contest is open to all professional and amateur photographers who are over 18.
Night photography in all its varieties: landscape, astrophotography, urban, dioramas, espeleo photography and light painting outdoors or study, etc … will be accepted as long as they maintain the essence of night photography.
Each competitor can submit as many photographs as he/she want, and to which they must hold the intellectual property rights.

The photographs must be at least 2 000 pixels and no more than 10 000 pixels, in JPG (JPEG) format, and can be no larger than 10 MB.
The works will be at all times the property of their authors. Mario Rubio – Fotógrafo Nocturno will not use for any other purpose than show winners in their usual media.
Basic digital processing like white balance, levels, contrast, saturation, focus,… will be accepted. The jury will decide whether or not the photo meets these requirements.
The authors of the photographs they reach the final stage of the discussions may be asked, if necessary, by any means, explanations about the image that the jury deems appropriate, including the RAW files.
Startrails may be submitted (image stacking). In this case, the jury may request the JPGs sequence.
Double exposures may be submitted if the result is a single RAW.
The Olympus Livecomposite mode will be accepted because the result is a single RAW.
Panoramic photos will be accepted and the author may be asked for the RAW or JPG forming the final file.
The blending of different images will be accepted as long as these are not processed individually and form part of the final photograph. The jury may request all photos used to check.
