You will retain all writes to your photo. We only obtain the right to display your image in our magazine. Your credits will be listed on our Gallery page below the image and then on other pages in our magazine but maybe without credits listed on the additional pages.  It is that simple. We will not use it for any other purposes other than an artistic display in our magazine.

Photography Contest Judging Criteria

Judging criteria: Use of color, Composition, and Uniqueness. We also take into consideration what you would have gone through to get the image. Ex: hiking 3 miles into the wilderness and climbing to the top of a waterfall so if you have a unique story behind obtaining the image, please let us know.  As a travel photography team, we appreciate the extent people go through to get award-winning images.

We love colorful images. We can spot perfect composition a mile away. We frown on images with close-ups or too many people who do not focus on the landscape. We love uniqueness and photos obtained from a unique angle. We hate tilted horizons.  -Your Judges.

  • The winning entries will be featured on our website’s front page for one month and then remain in the gallery’s Archives for five (5) years.
  • By having their work on our website, winning artists should increase their work exposure and create a backlink to their website.
  • We will also provide a promotion to the artists in the Special Merit Categories.
