  • Fantasy:These images include composites and photomontages of more than one photograph generated manually or digitally to create at once real and imaginary scenes. It also includes digital photographic abstracts.

  • Nature: These images depict a range of photography taken outdoors and devoted to displaying natural elements such as plants, flower, trees and close-ups of natural scenes and textures. It also includes animals in any setting – wild, domestic, farm, zoo, birds, sea life, insects, etc.

  • People: These images include people and may depict moments of everyday life when the ordinary becomes extraordinary and seeks to capture chance interactions of everyday activity.

  • Still Life Food / Found Object: These images depict inanimate subject matter. They are typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, plants, rocks, shells, etc.) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, and so on). Still life often suggests an arrangement of objects by the photographer, but this category also includes the more spontaneous discovery of everyday objects in their given environment.
