AI Usage Prohibition:
We want to emphasize that it is absolutely forbidden to use AI (Artificial Intelligence) in any form for image creation, enhancement, or manipulation in this year's competition.
At World ShootOut, we value the traditional artistry and skill of underwater photography, and thus, all submitted images must be a result of conventional photography techniques, void of any AI-generated content.
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.
