- We expect that the welfare of people, animals, and their environments take precedence over photography. In other words, don’t harm or manipulate the subject or its environment for the sake of creating an image.
- Brightening or darkening specific areas in an image is allowed but should be kept to a minimum and not done to the point where it is obvious.
- Cropping is allowed, but composing the image in-camera is always ideal.
- Cloning is not allowed.
- Converting your colour photos to black and white is acceptable.
- We allow filters on photographs but please do not overprocess or manipulate e.g. using photo editing software such as Photoshop.
- To be eligible for print publication photographers must have a RAW file on hand to be turned over to our editors.
- Any content that violates this Code of Ethics or the Terms & Conditions will be immediately disqualified. This includes inappropriate, pornographic or offensive, or otherwise objectionable content, hate speech, and copyright violations.
