FAQ

Who can enter?

Our competitions are open to any person not directly involved in the organisation or judging processes. Both amateur and professional photographers over the age of 18 are eligible to enter.

Why do you charge an entry fee?

The competition entry fees cover the costs of prizes, judge's fees, web hosting and charity involvements amongst other costs. Without them, we simply wouldn't be able to operate. We give away 50% of our income in every competition in prize money which allows us to operate within our means but also scale with popularity.

How will I know if I've been successful in a competition?

Judging will be completed within two weeks of the close of a competition, with all winners and highly commended entrants being contacted prior to the announcement of the results. Any cash prize winners will be paid via PayPal.

How is prize money split between winning entrants?

The pot of prize money between our competitions is independent of the others, meaning if one competition receives more entries, the winner of the competition with a bigger prize pot will win more prize money. The percentage of the prize money each winner will receive is as follows:

Winner - 35%

Runner-up - 15%

Is there a time limit on when photographs must be taken?

No, there is no time limit on when images must have been taken.

Can I add watermarks to my images?

Watermarks are not permitted on entry submissions.

Do I sacrifice my copywright by entering my images?

Absolutely not, you retain full copyright to your images. As photographers we understand the importance to retaining copyright. By entering images in to our competitions you agree to us using your imagery for marketing purposes surrounding the competition but you will be credited when and where possible.

What images are not eligible?

Specifically around submissions to our WILD Life competition, images containing domestic pets or farm animals are not permitted, however images showing captive species are allowed, but this should be highlighted in your image description.

We also do not condone the practice of live baiting and it is the duty of all photographers to obtain any licenses needed to photograph protected or vulnerable species.
