Any photo submitted must be taken on a smartphone and must be accompanied by a completed “photo recipe” form. Photos will be judged on the following:

Theme: How appropriate is the photo in relation to the theme of smartphone photography?

Originality: The degree to which the photo is ‘fresh’ and something we’ve never seen before!

Creativity: Does the photo demonstrate a creative use of photographic techniques to capture and keep the viewer’s attention?

Composition & Layout: The visual balance of the photo - is it overall pleasing to the eye, and abiding by the basic principles of composition?

Emotion: To what degree were the basic principles of composition used to add emotion to the photograph. Does it leave the viewer saying "WOW"?
