Rules

  • This competition is open to all photographers from any nation and of any age.
  • Only images of the Isle of Skye will be eligible for entry.
  • Images can also be views from the Isle of Skye - for example of the Isle of Rum from Glenbrittle.
  • Images must be recognisable as Skye. For example a photo of an eagle flying in a clear sky without any land features to prove where it was taken, or a macro shot of a fossil will not be eligible.
  • Images can be of any subject (landscape, wildlife, portrait, etc), but should portray the Isle of Skye. A great portrait shot of a family enjoying their time on holiday would be a good example of this. Images can be in colour or black & white.
  • The Isle of Skye is known and photographed for its natural beauty and wildlife, so it seems fitting that the photos entered for this competition should also be natural. Photos must not be digitally altered beyond basic adjustments of contrast, colour balance, saturation, levels, etc. No cloning is permitted. No merging of different exposures is permitted, although stitching of more than one exposure together to form a panoramic image is allowed, providing the exposures were all taken in a single sequence at the same time. Cropping is allowed.
  • Finalists will be requested to prove the authenticity of their image by providing the original RAW or JPEG capture.
  • All photographs must be original work and be owned by the photographer.
  • All entries must be entered via this website. No postal entries will be accepted.
  • There is no limit to how many photos a single photographer can enter, but each photo must be entered separately.
  • The closing date for entries is 10pm (GMT) on Sunday 29th Oct 2017.
  • The Isle of Skye Photo Competition will not use your images for any purpose not connected with the competition. Copyright of any entered image remains solely with the photographer.

Terms & Notes

Winners of Misty Isle Gin will be sent their prize via courier if they are resident in the UK. Laws forbid overseas shipping of spirits so for any top 3 placed photographers living abroad, their Gin can be collected from Skye during a future visit (no time limit).

Winners of Isle of Skye Chocolates will be sent their prizes to anywhere in the world. However, if you live in a hot environment, the producer cannot guarantee the product will arrive in perfect condition.

Overseas winners of cash will be subject to small transfer fees which will be deducted from the prize amount.
