Digi-Click Submission Guidelines

Entries must be received by December 6th, 2019.

 

Image eligibility:

  • Images must have been taken in 2019.

  • Images must have been taken with a mobile device (phone or tablet) or be digitally altered.

  • Images must be previously unpublished; entries from previous competition years cannot be reentered. Please note that any images entered in this competition CAN be also entered into the Big Click competition, as long as images are printed and matted according to that competition’s specifications.

  • Images should be no smaller than 1MB and no larger than 5MB; there are multiple ways to check the size of your photos. One of those ways is to upload your image to this website and it will tell you the size of the photo (Allied Arts is not affiliated with Pictorem in any way). If your image is larger than 5MB, there are several websites that can reduce the size for free—just make sure not to reduce the quality so much that the image becomes pixelated or blurry.

  • Entrants must be able to supply a high-resolution image file suitable for printing in exhibitions should the image be required.

  • Images must not infringe upon the copyrights, trademarks, contract rights, or any other intellectual property rights of any third person or entity or violate any person’s rights of privacy or publicity. Any and each person depicted in the images must have granted permission to be portrayed as shown.

  • By entering the competition, you agree and acknowledge that you are the sole owner and author of the photography submitted and have full rights to the photography.

  • Entrants will be notified of the judges decisions by email. All entries will be uploaded onto the website for public viewing.

  • Allied Arts recognizes that the author of the image will retain full ownership of the copyright in each entry.

  • All entrants understand that any image submitted to the competition may be used by Allied Arts for marketing and promotional purposes. By entering the competition, you grant Allied Arts permission to use each entry in the aforementioned capacity, which may include, but is not limited to, the following: displaying entries at public exhibitions, displaying on the website, in a magazine, newspaper or similar publication. Any photograph used by Allied Arts will carry a credit line. Failure to provide such credit line shall not be deemed to be a breach, if reasonable efforts are made to rectify such failure.
