Photo Contest Rules and Legal Disclaimers

The “Starry Night” photo contest is open to any photography enthusiast from anywhere within the Unites States or Canada. The contest theme is open for interpretation but must include the night sky as a primary element paying special attention to the moon and/or stars.

Contest entrants are encouraged to consider utilizing historic locations and landmarks, creative foreground elements, or unique celestial perspectives to push the limits of nightscape photography.

The winners will receive vouchers to Aluminyze their photograph. The Aluminyze format allows for added luminescence, brilliance, and color saturation making nighttime photography come alive in print.
