Nature (Specialist Subject)

Nature photography covers images of living birds, plants, animals, fungi etc. provided that they are not domesticated or cultivated. It also covers subjects such as weather and geology provided they are titled to show their significance in the natural world. Photographs of animals which are domesticated, as well as photographs of cultivated plants, are ineligible. Photographs of semi-wild animals in captivity (eg. zoos or nature reserves), or under other forms of restraint, are acceptable provided this is disclosed by the entrant in the title.

Minimal evidence of humans is acceptable, such as barn owls or storks adapting to an environment modified by humans, or natural forces, like hurricanes or tidal waves, reclaiming it.

Any manipulation of the image is limited to minor re-touching of blemishes, exposure, sharpening etc. and must not alter the content of the original scene. Titles must be specific and correct. Latin titles are not essential if the species can be accurately titled in English.

New PAGB and L&CPU Nature Rules

In conjunction with FIAP, PSA and RPS, the PAGB have recently issued a new definition for entries in the Nature section of their competitions. Click here to download this definition. For the moment, our Internal Competitions will NOT be adopting this definition, but any members entering L&CPU or PAGB Nature Competitions should be aware of these rules.
