Subjects photographed at night, any subject as long it is taken outside during the hours of darkness. May include long exposure, buildings, star trails, astro-photography or any subject photographed at night. Sunsets or sunrises are not acceptable.
An image in which the reflection of a subject provides the centre of interest. The reflection may be produced by water, windows, metal etc. Reflections created using photo editing software are not acceptable.
The urban equivalent of a landscape, a cityscape (or townscape) depicts the built form and shape of a city or town (or one of its parts) through general or broad views of buildings and/or streets by the use of composition and light. Architectural detail images of one (or more) buildings are not considered cityscapes.
Symmetry or Patterns
Symmetry is where an image can be separated into two equal parts (either horizontally or vertically). Both of the separate parts of the image should then look identical .
Patterns: An image where a series of the same or similar element are repeated, such as line, colour, shape, texture.
Within the "Square Mile" of Adelaide (Bounded by and within the Four Terraces)
PLEASE NOTE that this is different to the Adelaide Project as this set subject is restricted to inside the four terraces.
A photograph of the City of Adelaide where the subject lies within the boundary of all four terraces (defined by the centreline of the terraces) of the city of Adelaide, namely North, South, East and West Terraces. An image taken from within the Terraces looking outwards would not be accepted.
Not accepted: The Parklands, Adelaide Oval, The buildings on the northern side of North Terrace. eg the State Library, The Museum, Parliament House, Government House etc, SAHMRI, new RAH, The new University medical buildings, Adelaide University, Anything pertaining to The River Torrens, The Fringe Festival Parade.
Accepted. Uni SA City West campus, Rundle Mall, Hindley Street. Any of the five squares within the Four Terraces. Activities in Victoria Square.
Botanical photography is used to depict plants accurately with respect to their form and color, providing relevant information documenting plant morphology and function.
Street photography records un-posed scenes in public places. The primary subject is people and/or symbols of people alone or with others, going about their everyday activities. Manipulation should be confined to colour correction and judicial cropping.
Nature and Wildlife
Nature photography is restricted to the use of the photographic process to depict all branches of natural history, except anthropology and archaeology, in such a fashion that a well-informed person will be able to identify the subject material and certify its honest presentation. The story telling value of a photograph must be weighed more than the pictorial quality, while maintaining high technical quality. Human elements shall not be present, except where those human elements are integral parts of the nature story such as nature subjects, like barn owls or storks, adapted to an environment modified by humans, or where those human elements are in situations depicting natural forces, like hurricanes or tidal waves. Scientific bands, scientific tags or radio collars on wild animals are permissible. Photographs of human created hybrid plants, cultivated plants, feral animals, domestic animals, or mounted specimens are ineligible, as is any form of manipulation that alters the truth of the photographic statement.
No techniques that add, relocate, replace, or remove pictorial elements except by cropping are permitted. Techniques that enhance the presentation of the photograph without changing the nature of the story or the pictorial content, or without altering the content of the original scene are permitted, including HDR, focus stacking and dodging/burning. Techniques that remove elements added by the camera, such as dust spots, digital noise, and film scratches, are allowed. Stitched images are not permitted. All allowed adjustments must appear natural.
Colour images can be converted to grey-scale monochrome. Infrared images, either direct- capture or derivations, are not allowed.
No distinction is made between “wildlife” and other images fitting the above definition in this competition.
