HomeHow to Enter Images


Image specifications

All submitted images must be in the form of digital files.

Images must be in JPEG/JPG format, 8 bit, and 72 dpi. Colour space should be RGB or sRGB. Please refer to call-for-entries for restrictions on maximum file size and maximum dimension of longest side.

Images must not have border, marks or logos identifying the artists.

Captions are optional. Title and caption are used for images featured in our winners galleries and will not affect your score.

Image Creation

There are no restrictions on the date of the images.

Published and unpublished artworks are both eligible.

Images and artworks made at tutorials/workshops are not eligible.

For photographic images, all editing must have been performed by you and no-one else. At TZIPAC, we believe that the editing is as important as the photography itself and we want to encourage and celebrate your creativity and skills.

Categories and Competitions

Images must conform to the thematic descriptions of competitions and categories into which they are entered. Please see specific competition's call-for-entry in our Open Competitions listing for further details.

An image may be entered into multiple categories within the same competition, provided they conform with each category description. An image may not be entered into future TZIPAC competitions with the same name, but may be entered in any other TZIPAC competitions having different names.

TZIPAC has full discretion to disqualify and remove artworks which we deem to contain obscene, defamatory or otherwise objectionable content.

Series vs Single Image Entry

A series/portfolio comprises 5-10 images sharing a common theme.

If a specific competition's call-for-entries accepts both single images and series/portfolios, then series/portfolios may be submitted in its entirety or in parts to one or more categories. Moreover, an image, which is part of a series/portfolio that has been submitted to the genre 'Series' of a given category, may also be submitted to the genre 'Single Image' of the same category or any other category.


You warrant that the submitted artworks have been created by you, and that you own all necessary rights to use the artworks. Find out more in the Copyrights & Releases section of our "How to Enter".

Artworks that fail to comply with these conditions will be disqualified.
