Contest Rules

Hummingbird PhotographyPLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SUBMITTING!!!

**This contest is sponsored by the Go Take a Hike Photography Group; any images submitted should represent things that one may find out on the trail, in a natural setting – unless contest rules specifically allow exceptions.**


Contest Logo: Hey, There! – A male Broad-Tailed Hummingbird checks me out at my campsite in the mountains of Colorado.



Show us a scene where the subject is a hummingbird, following these rules:


1. Photography Only. No digital alterations, digital painting, mixed media, selective color, false backgrounds, added graphics or text allowed.


2. Your image must be of a hummingbird, and have the hummingbird as the main subject of the image. Broad photographs with the hummingbird as only a small part of the image will not be accepted. Images with the focus on a flower or other object more so than the hummingbird will not be accepted. See contest logo for an example.


3. Your images must be natural scenes captured in natural environments – botanical gardens and gardens in local parks are okay, but NO YARDS OR HOME GARDENS are allowed. Please do not submit images of hummingbirds on feeders. Pets/domestic/captive animals, people, and man-made objects are NOT allowed. Any images taken in neighborhoods or built-up areas are NOT allowed.


4. As always, there is ABSOLUTELY NO VOTER SOLICITATION ALLOWED in any Go Take a Hike Photo Group contest. Please allow your images to speak for themselves! Also, no position-bumping. If you submit images, then leave them where they are. Pulling and resubmitting to get your images to the front will result in your images being removed.




I reserve the right to remove any photos which do not meet the contest parameters. I look forward to seeing everybody’s work!
