  • Moving Stills:
    Participants can send in pictures of anything that has moved, inspired or motivated them. This a free category with no specific theme. If you have a message or story you want to share through your photograph, send it in!
  • Seven Deadly Sins:
    This is a theme based category revolving around the seven deadly sins of pride, envy, lust, sloth, greed, gluttony and wrath…..except with a GREEN twist. Participants can send in entries depicting any one, two or all of these sins but relate them not to people but to the environment! (eg. ‘Wrath’ of global warming on our climate patterns, “Pride” of towering concrete cities after merciless felling of trees) Relate a sin to any crisis of environment and send in your shot!
  • Strength & Spirit:
    Participants can send in their own photographic interpretations of strength, endurance and spirit. It could be anything from a massive bridge to a row of working ants or even your personal pillar of strength!

Each entrant may submit entries in any category he/she wishes and may submit entries at different times during the entry period, but no entrant may submit more than two (2) entries per category. A single email address may be used by only one entrant; entries by additional entrants using the same email address will be disqualified. If an entrant exceeds any of these limits, latest of that entrant’s entries will be considered for the contest.

Apart from the above, here are the other requirements:
