Recording events and
people of the day. Pictures that uniquely record aspects of life today.
Better images generally tell a story.
Photojournalism entries should consist of pictures or sequences with
informative content and emotional impact, including human interest,
documentary and spot news. The journalistic value of the photograph shall be
considered over pictorial quality. In the interest of credibility,
photographs which misrepresent the truth, such as manipulation to alter the
subject matter, or situations which are set up for the purpose of photography,
are unacceptable in Photojournalism competition.
No elements may be moved, cloned, added, deleted, rearranged, combined or
changed in any way that affects the integrity of the image content. No
manipulation or modification is permitted except resizing, cropping, selective
lightening or darkening, and restoration of original colour of the scene. No
special effect filters can be added or applied either before or after image
creation and any sharpening must appear natural.
