    Abstract and Contemporary:
    Entries should be either abstract or unusual in its subject matter or depict visual image that does not have an immediate association with the object world. Such works may " isolate a fragment of a natural scene in order to remove its inherent context from the viewer", or may "be purposely staged to create a seemingly unreal appearance from real objects", or may "involve the use of color, light, shadow, texture, shape and/or form to convey a feeling, sensation or impression". Abstract and contemporary artworks usually carry meanings of "greater weight than its subject matter".
    Landscape and Nature:
    Landscape photography shows spaces and expanses within the world, usually vast and unending, rather than focusing on a specific object. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes. Nature photography refers to a wide range of photography taken outdoors and devoted to displaying natural elements such as landscapes, wildlife, plants, and close-ups of natural scenes and textures.
    People and Animals:
    Subject matter of your artwork should feature people and/or animals.
