Contest Rules

Reds and Pinks in Nature 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: Honey Bee Sees Red – a honey bee busy at work on red Clover flowers.

Show us any natural scene in which pink or red is the star of the image, following these rules:


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


2. Your photo must either contain at least 50% pink or red (like an image of a field full of wildflowers), OR the clear and obvious subject of the image must be mostly pink or red (flower, butterfly, etc.). An acceptable example for one is the contest logo; an acceptable example of the other would be a red ladybug on a field of green grass. An example of what would NOT be acceptable is a male Red-Winged Blackbird, since most of the subject is black and there is only a small patch of red.


3. Your images must be of natural scenes found within a natural environment. No yards, gardens (to include botanical gardens), neighborhoods, or built-up areas are allowed. No people, pets, domestic animals, or man-made objects are allowed.


4. Your pink or red objects MUST BE LIVING THINGS; no sunrises or sunsets, colorful skies, or red rock formations will be allowed.


5. 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!
