    Hello, what criteria determines if a photographer can be entered in the professional division of a photo contest.

    As a Volunteer Photo Judge fir several years now, and a photography collector to boot, I second your criteria write-up. It is well thought out, clear and precise. I would only add “simplicity” to your criteria. Roger Lourie

      Thank you, Roger, for your thoughtful comment. We agree — simplicity would be a great added criteria.

    Very useful guide-lines, thank you.
    As a nature photographer and scientist, I put value on the real thing. It is far harder to get a photo of a wild eagle attacking a hare, than to ask a falconer to fly his eagle at a hare for you.
    Or to take photos of tame/zoo animals. This may be entered as “controlled”, but I still feel that “Degree of difficulty” is a valid factor, in many shots.
