The decision of the BOARD OF JUDGES is final and unappealable.

Post production like exposure control (dodge and burn); Color saturation (control); creative cropping are all do able when you print from a negative. Even conversion to black and white color toning (sepia, blue, selenium, etc.) as long as it’s done across the frame and not only its selected areas are acceptable.
