Projected image competition – Flora and Fauna @ Peel Centre
Oct 12 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

You may enter any image depicting photographs of non-human living creatures (fauna) or plants (flora). The photographs can include subjects that are wild, domesticated, captive, farmed or
cultivated. The main subject of the photograph should be one or more plants and/or animals and the habitat is not restricted.

In terms of processing, adjustments to the image such as the exposure, contrast, colour balance, cropping and appropriate sharpening is allowed, so that the plants or animals are accurately represented as seen in the camera viewfinder. Minor removals of parts of the image which improve the accurate representation of the plants or animals are allowed. Additions to the original camera image are not allowed. In other words, by all means take out an offending twig or blade of grass etc but do not add extra animals, plants or replace the sky or other background.

As a projected image competition, images (width 1400 pixels, height 1050 pixels and a maximum of 2) must be emailed to Darren by noon on the Sunday before the event (9th October). Pay your entry fee on the night.
