For all Nature images, scientific or common names must be included in the titles. Images in New Zealand Nature must have been taken in the natural environment of New Zealand or its offshore islands.  All images must maintain a faithful representation of a natural form, behaviour or phenomenon as captured in the original image. No elements within the original image may be moved, cloned, introduced, deleted, rearranged or combined. No artificial, false or substitute backgrounds are to be used. Any manipulation or modification to the original image is limited to minor retouching of blemishes and must not alter the content of the original scene. Resizing, cropping, selective lightening or darkening and restoration of the original colour of the scene are also acceptable. Digital techniques that extend the capability of the camera may be used as long as they honestly and accurately represent the original nature story or event at the time of capture.
