Human Interest Competition - March 21, 2023

On March 21, 2023, LPA will be having a competition. The theme will be Human Interest. Please upload your entries by 03/15/2023 at 11:59 P.M.

Our competition judge is Kevin Karzin, who is an amazing photographer and judge! 

DEFINITION OF HUMAN INTEREST – Human Interest is defined as an image depicting a person or persons in an interactive, emotional or unusual situation,
excluding recreational or organized sports action.

Guidelines for Human Interest Images: As with all reality-based divisions, techniques that add, relocate, replace or remove any element of the original image, except by
cropping, are not permitted. The only allowable modifications are removal of dust, scratches or digital noise, restoration of the existing appearance of the original scene, sharpening that is not obvious, and complete conversion to grayscale monochrome. Other derivations, including infrared, are not eligible. All allowed adjustments must
appear natural.

“Restoration of the appearance of the original scene” may include techniques such as HDR, focus stacking and dodging/burning provided they do not alter the contents of the original scene and the result looks natural.

Borders are optional, but must be 3 or 4 pixels in width and must be white or a shade of grey.
