K.A.B. Photo competition

K.A.B. Photo competition

The Killi Association of Bulgaria, (KAB), announces its 7-th Killifish Photo Competition.
We are very excited to present this competition in the field of digital images and hope to encourage international participation by giving enthusiasts the possibility to e-mail their submissions as file attachments.

1. Photography classes:
– Portrait – (There is the whole fish on the picture, also a macro close up…)
– Action – (There are mostly 2-3 fishes in breeding or combat process)
– Free style

2. Parameters for submitted digital files:
– Files format – JPEG
– Resolution – 1024×768(682) pix or 682×1024 pix
Images should follow these parameters approximately, allowing the vertical dimension to fall as per aspect ratio of the particular image. If images do not meet these size requirements, they will be resized by the personal of the Photography Judging Committee, in order to ensure image display during the judging process. Any names or signs on the files are forbidden!

3. The competitor must be the author of the digital file, even if the subject of the photo is not his property.

4. None of the photos must be winners at other Killi photo-contests or published (printed) yet in some aqua-magazines/ bulletins. It doesn’t mean the all forum-sharing photos!

5. Usage of programs such as Photoshop is allowed, but not in a manner that exaggerates the real characteristics of the fish.
(Do not make an original yellow fin intensive orange or red!)

6. File name in the e-mail:
File name should include entrant’s last name, first name, full name of the fish, and location (if known).

7. Number of entries allowed:
There is a limit of 5 files, per class, per entrant.

8. All files will be stored in the KAB archive. Substandard pictures will be deleted. The pictures entered in this competition could be used for articles in the KAB Killi Bulletin and add to KAB website/Facebook page photo gallery. The name of the author of the used file will be acknowledged. If foreign editors express interest in the photos, they will be given the e-mail address of the author to discuss terms of use.
