You may submit as many photographs as you wish; however, you must complete a separate on-line submission form for each photograph you wish to enter.  The image may originate in a non-digital format (such as high quality film slides, negatives or prints scanned into a digital format) so long as it is submitted electronically.  Entries must be submitted in JPEG format (as .jpg files) and should be at least 1MB but shall not exceed 5MB.  You must submit the actual image file, not a link or other type of file.  If an image file is not readable, the entry will be disqualified.  Altered photographs maybe submitted, so long as you specify on the entry form how the photo has been altered.  No photo montages or composite images will be accepted.  Rainforest Alliance in its sole judgment shall determine whether a photograph meets these requirements for entry into the contest.  Electronic files submitted to Rainforest Alliance will not be returned and may be retained by Rainforest Alliance after the completion of the contest.
