There are four Pictorial competitions held each year, two in the fall and two in the winter/spring. At the end of the season, there is a competition for Image of the Year for the categories of General, Creative, and Photojournalism/Street.
Images in this category consist of any material that is pictorial (aesthetic), documentary, patterns—a broad category of images generally acceptable as photographic, non-commercial material.
The Creative category has been combined again into one category (CR). This includes both Altered Reality and Enhanced Reality. The maker may wish to add (Composite) at the end of the title to clarify that the image is actually creative.
Photojournalism /Street Photography consists of images that tell stories or document people affected by an event or a situation. Only global post-processing techniques are permitted such as tone, exposure, or colour adjustments. No selective adjustments are allowed. For example, nothing may be added, removed, or cloned. Cropping is permitted.
Pictorial 2 will include a Theme category—Leading Lines.
