Sharks 2017
GUIDELINES
  • A set of 3 shark images taken during November 2nd, 2016 - November 1st, 2017 can be submitted to this category. 
  • These can be either 3 standalone impressive shark images or 3 shark images that when integrated into one series, produce an impressive portfolio.
  • Images should refer to the environmental context of the shark, emphasizing its powerful visual appearance, as well as its independency and tendency to control.
  • Minor editing of images using any imaging software is allowed. This includes color and contrast enhancements, backscatter removal, minor flaws fixes and background consolidation. Image editing that alters the main content of the image, such as moving, removing models and/or implanting foreign elements, is not permitted.
