How to enter photo contest

Submission guidelines

  • Each participant may submit a maximum of three photos. 
  • Only online uploads through the link given in the “Enter the photo contest” section are acceptable.
  • Entries can be portraits of a single primate or a group. 
  • Participants are encouraged to provide contextual information about the photo, such as name of photographer, theme, caption (under 150 words), location (geographical coordinates if available), time, and date.
  • Entries must be original photos taken by the participant (following the principle of photosensitivity, using traditional photographic negatives, such as film or digital photoreceptor records). Colour images changed to black and white as well as scanned (digitized) images of non-digital photographs, negatives, or transparencies are also acceptable. The original works, shooting, and post-production must be completed by the authors who own the copyright.
  • Entries must be digital black and white or colour images, submitted in a .jpeg or .jpg format. It is recommended to convert the colour space to sRGB before saving the JPG file so that it will present the best picture quality and colour reproduction when reviewing and displaying.
  • Image size: Regardless of horizontal or vertical images, the long side should not be less than 2000 pixels.
  • Resolution: 300 dpi
  • File size: Should not exceed 3 MB
  • Photos with watermarks or date/time are not permissible. Photos that have been digitally manipulated, compromising the integrity of the originals, are not eligible. High dynamic range images (HDR) and composite images are not acceptable. Minimal cropping, however, is permitted. 
  • The naming of the submitted work should be as follows: Photographer name + YY/MM/DD + preserve file name created by the camera (e.g. Name_190215_img_0034.jpg).
