3. Eligible images – images must be within 5 years, and depict any part of Scotland or Scottish island.

4. Categories – Overall winner – decided on highest 3 scoring images. Landscape, Seascape, Urban, 4 Seasons & Mono decided on highest scoring single image.

5. Editing – there are no restrictions (except for the overall winners award). Images may be edited or not and the choice is entirely yours. Images will be judged on visual appeal with a preference for natural looking images.

6 . Prizes – the only prizes are the kudos of winning the overall award, category or commendation. There are no physical or cash prizes but there may be sponsor prizes.

8. Entrants must be 18 years and over, from the UK & Overseas. Members of the “SOSLP” are not permitted to enter.

9. This year’s free entry and relaxation of the rules is a one off, purely in recognition of the difficult times photographers have had for the past 2 years of the pandemic.
