Photographic requirements

As a social media platform photographic competition, and as a competition that invites members of the public, as well as professional photographers and artists, to participate, Site_Specific has no requirements as to which software processes are used to enhance the image. All images will be judged on their final merit as displayed online via any of our social media platforms. The overall winning image will be selected by professional photographers where professional photography guidelines may have influence.

Judging criteria

It's a brand new web media world. The photographers and visual artists judging the images on a daily basis will fluctuate, as well as the online public attention each image receives. As such Site_Specific offers no guidelines in this regard.

The decision of the judges is final. No correspondence will be entered into thereafter.
