Is there a limit to the number of photos that I can enter?
No, you may enter as many photographs as you like.
What format should I save my digital images?
Digital image files should measure between 4000 and 5000 pixels on the longest side (we need large files because the winning images will be printed in book format as well as online), 300 dpi, be saved as a JPEG (recommended setting 9 or 10), in AdobeRGB colour space.
Does it matter where I live in the world?
Except where prohibited by law, international entries can be submitted.
What are my chances of winning?
Chance does not enter into the process as it is based on the judges' assessment, but we expect to get several thousand entries.
Will my photos be returned?
No. There is no need for us to return your digital images. However, your images will not be used except as allowed in the Rules (which is essentially only for promotional purposes for this competition).
Will my images be sold?
No. We will not be selling your images, but we hope people who see your images may contact you to buy them. You never know! You retain the copyright in your photographs and we are not able to use your photographs except as outlined in the rules. In summary, we can only use your photographs in the book (print and ebook), on the website and as part of the promotion of this year's and future's years' awards (in press releases for publication as news items or as exhibitions of the winning images etc). Generally speaking, we'll only be using the winning images for promotion of this competition.
Can you enter if you are a professional photographer?
Yes, the awards are open to professional and non-professional photographers alike.

Colour Spaces - Why AdobeRGB and not sRGB?

Entries to ILPOTY are asked to be saved in the AdobeRGB colour space (strictly speaking, with the Adobe RGB (1998) colour profile).

The AdobeRGB colour space is larger than the sRGB colour space, especially in the greens and blues which we expect is important for many landscape photographers.

The entries will be viewed and judged in a web browser. Modern web browsers can read and use colour spaces (as profiles). Our judges use high quality, calibrated monitors that can take advantage of the larger colour space.

When you enter your photographs, our system generates a small preview to show you what you have entered. The 'preview' in our system is just that, a preview thumbnail with no ICC profile embedded - so different web browsers will 'assume' certain characteristics and you may see a flatter result. However, the judges do not judge this thumbnail - they are shown a version of your original entry, plus they can view your original entry at 100% if they wish.

We have chosen AdobeRGB because it is a larger colour space, provides a better quality image, and we are using modern browsers and monitors to take advantages of it. However, it is true that in the past, sRGB was chosen as the default colour space and still is in some situations where the lowest common denominator is a poor quality screen, tablet or smart phone.  This does not apply to us. Also, when you research this issue on Google, check the dates of the posts and articles - they have often been superceded.

Thumbnail Image

The thumbnail image has had the colour codes stripped out to make it a smaller file, this is not how the end image looks to the judges!
