Images must have been taken in one of cazenove+loyd’s regions of expertise, namely Central and South America, Africa and The Indian Ocean and South and South East Asia. The competition is open to those aged 18 and over.
Entrants may use digital manipulation to optimise and/or crop images, adjust brightness, contrast and colour balance or retouch dust spots. Images may also be sharpened and multiple exposures in camera will be allowed. However, entrants may not use composite or montage photographs produced from more than one original image. Nor may they add or remove elements which would otherwise appear.
One portfolio entry is allowed per person per month. A portfolio consists of up to five photographs, each in JPEG format and each of 5MB or below.
The entrant grants to the Promoter and Leica the right to use the winning images from the date of entry to 18 months after the closing date of the Competition and for no further consideration beyond that of the stated prizes. However, all such uses will credit the photographer, provided they give their agreement. (For the avoidance of doubt, copyright shall remain with the entrant). The entrant also grants to the Promoter and Leica the right to use other entered images from the date of entry to 12 months after the closing date of the Competition for no consideration. However, all such uses will credit the photographer provided they give their agreement. (As with winning images, copyright shall remain with the entrant).
The Competition runs each calendar month until 31st December 2011.
Each month’s competition closes at 11.59pm on the last day of that month. Photographs submitted after this date will automatically be entered into the following month’s competition, provide it is still running over that period.
