The most important facts at a glance
  1. Dates:

    From 1 February 2023 to 1 April 2023, 11:59 p.m., the pictures including the real contact details (name, address, e-mail) must be uploaded via the form for participation. By sending the photos, the entrants also accept the conditions of participation. Shipments arriving after the closing date cannot be considered. 205er Photography recommends that all participants submit images early. Each participant can submit a maximum of three pictures. If a participant submits more than three photos, only the most recently sent pictures will be considered.

  1. Sizes:

  1. Image title/file name:

    The file name must not contain the name of the participant or allow conclusions to be drawn about the identity of the participant. Ideally, the participant uses the file name to give the submitted work a title, for example “Bild_ohne_Namen.jpg”. The awarding of a title is voluntary, but a good title can help to arouse the interest of the jurors. Basically, however, the image must be able to speak for itself, the title should therefore not exceed the length of 30 characters. If a participant does not award a title, 205er Photography reserves the right to award a title itself in the event of an award.

  1. Image processing and montages:

    Image edits are allowed. Montages must be marked as such. If the photographic performance takes a back seat due to excessive editing of the images, it is possible that members of the jury will have a negative impact on this fact in their evaluation.

  2. Risk:                                                                                                                                             The risk of loss or damage of image files during online transmission is borne by the participants.
