Competitions - New Photojournalism Rules

To help explain the new upload procedures for Photojournalism images and to help members better understand what constitutes a Photojournalism image, a set of Rules and Guidelines has been added to the Competitions page. Please consider submitting images for this challenging category, which concentrates far more on the 'story' the picture tells than on extensive editing. The next Photojournalism night is scheduled for Friday, October 5th
