ELIGIBILITY AND JUDGING:

To ensure eligibility for the contest all entries must have a resolution of 6 million pixels or greater (6 megapixels) to be made available upon request. Images that do not meet this standard can still be judged, but may not be honored as a finalist in the competition (at the judges sole discretion) if the photographer is unable or unavailable to provide the proper resolution when asked.

Resolution can be calculated by multiplying the pixel width of the image with the pixel height. For example, a photograph taken with a 6-megapixel camera set for the highest resolution and best quality produces images approximately 2832 pixels by 2128 pixels, which are acceptable under the rules (2832 x 2128 = 6 million).

Submissions may be watermarked if desired, but the watermark should be inconspicuous enough to not interfere with the judging of the photo. A watermarked photo might not be honored by the competition (at the judges sole discretion) if the photographer is unable or unavailable to provide a pristine, watermark-free version of the image when asked.

Images will be judged on originality, technical excellence, composition, overall impact and artistic merit. The judges are a panel of Oehlert Bros. staff. Oehlert Bros. Inc. shall determine winner eligibility in its sole and absolute discretion. All decisions made by the judges are final.

DEADLINES:

Entries can be emailed starting 12:01 pm Eastern Standard Time on August 1, 2019. Deadline for submitting entries is 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time on August 31, 2019.

Finalists will be announced September 6, 2019.

Oehlert Bros. Inc. reserves the right to adjust any deadline(s) as the result of causes beyond its immediate control.

WINNING PHOTOS:

Winning photos per entrant is limited to two. The judging panel will select approximately 12 photos to be the contest’s winners for publication in the customer Oehlert Bros. Inc. 2020 Calendar.
