Photo and video

  • Impact - what you feel when you first view the Entry. Does the photo/video evoke an emotion from the viewer? This is best explained by the "I wish I'd taken that picture” reaction. Given a choice, the action is preferable to a static scene. .
  • Creativity– how the Entrant was able to convey their idea, message or thought in an original and imaginative way through their lens.
  • Story Telling – how the Entrant is able to let their Photo/Video Entry evoke the viewer’s imagination, which may differ by each viewer.
  • Difficulty – this relates to motion, lighting conditions (including weather), selection of an appropriate viewpoint and inherent danger.

Each category will have 5 finalists who will compete for the first and second prizes in each category. The finalists will be the 5 most voted content creators by the public. Each application that reaches the final will be evaluated by the jury that will choose the winner of each category. If a category doesn’t have more than 5 participants, all participants will go straight to the final where the public vote will count as one Jury vote.
