Personal Note: Photo contests are a fun way of expressing creativity. It is also relatively easy to do! Joining photo contests is also a great way of learning basic photography - you get to compare your work against the winning entries.

This photo contest has restrictions in using photo editing software like Photoshop. Make sure you follow this rule if you do not want your entry to be disqualified. This includes composting (inserting additional images into your photo) , color correction and cropping (cutting out the unwanted portions to make your photo look better). Photo contest organizers will know that you edited your photo when they inspect its metadata (the information embedded in your photo including editing software).
