The general recognised standard for photography competitions is that the only editing allowed is the adjustment of levels and curves... A quick Google search will give all the information on both adjustments.

I believe Peter's point is very valid. I would rather see real photographs. Graphic art has a place but maybe not in a photo competition.

Rosie Wang, I just love your photos. The effect you put on draws an amazing outcome. Great vision.

At this point in time we don't have restrictions on editing or photoshopping. Our three expert judges have personal preferences and use those preferences to make their decisions on shortlists and winners. We welcome all photos from amateur/semi professional/professional, but are working on a way to make our competition as fair and equitable for all as possible.

Richard I think that manipulation of an image needs to be carefully considered. I also think that in a "photo" contest for amateur photographers should be just that, a photo contest. Manipulation should be limited to enhancing a scene rather that creating one that never existed. The skill with a camera counts too! not just the editing.
