4. Can I “edit” my photos?
We have based our editing rules on the National Geographic Photography Contest. The goal is to minimize manipulation to keep photos real and to accurately represent that amazing moment in time you were able to capture. Please do not digitally enhance or alter photos beyond the basics. Cropping and minor colour enhancements (such as dodging, burning and saturation) are acceptable. Stitching together photos to form collages or panoramas is NOT acceptable. Filters are allowed, but discouraged. We want as real as possible!
5. Where will my photos go?
Your photos will be stored on the ABMI’s secure server and used by ABMI staff in communication efforts, such as presentations, reports and social media. Photographers will always receive credit whenever their images are used by the ABMI.
