Submission of an image for inclusion in any Nature Visions competition or exhibit, constitutes the photographer’s assumption of all risk. Every precaution will be taken to safeguard photographs. However, it is expressly stated that the participating camera clubs, juror(s), sponsors, lecturers and volunteers accept no liability in the event of loss or damage.
By submitting images to this competition you agree that Northern Virginia Photography Expo may use the submitted image(s) only for exhibit at NVPE and for promotional purposes in printed and online media.
You must be a member in good standing of one of the following clubs to submit images:
Membership in multiple clubs does not confer the right to make more than six Nature entries and two Photo Art entries
BY SUBMITTING YOUR IMAGES FOR DIGITAL JUDGING YOU AGREE THAT IF ANY IMAGE IS SELECTED FOR DISPLAY (EITHER NATURE OR PHOTO ART) YOU AGREE TO VOLUNTEER FOR AT LEAST ONE SHIFT OF TWO HOURS DURING THE WEEKEND OF THE NATURE VISIONS PHOTO EXPO. IF NONE OF YOUR IMAGES IS SELECTED, YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO VOLUNTEER.
The photography standards of the Nature Visions Expo are extremely high. Photographers are asked to be selective, submitting only their superior photographs.
All photographs juried into the Nature or Photo Art Exhibits become ineligible for consideration in a future juried exhibit. Images juried into any previous exhibit or its predecessor exhibits are also ineligible for consideration. The same image may not be submitted for both the Nature and Photo Art competitions.
Images containing nudity or thought to be overtly graphic or otherwise inappropriate for public display to an audience of all ages will be removed. Images containing copyright notices will also be removed. All submitted images will be reviewed to ensure they comply with the Nature or Photo Art rules, as appropriate.
Image upload begins on 08/13/2018 and ends on 09/21/2018. Up until 09/15/2018, photographers will be notified of rejected images and replacements may be submitted for as long as online uploads are being accepted. Unfortunately, due to the high number of submissions in the last week before the deadline we cannot request replacements during this period.
Images uploaded will be reviewed for appropriate content and to ensure they are submitted according to the rules of the competition.
