What should be pointed out...
As in every comeptition there are some rules:
1 Camera- and Youth contest: It is allowed to use digital cameras except mobile phones. The participation with a team is not allowed. Accompanying persons which do not appear on more than two images are not considered as a team. In the event of violations of this rule, we reserve the right to disqualify the participant. The pictures must be taken in the given sequence. Any data manipulation (image editing, renaming of files, change of EXIF data, etc.) will cause disqualification of the participant. Only one camera can be used during the time of the contest. The file format must be jpeg with about 8-24 megapixels. Deleting pictures and re-taking them is allowed if the given sequence is followed. The images must be returned till 9:00 pm. There must be 13 images on the memory card - the starting number as first image followed by 12 images - one for each topic. A wrong number of files or files not in the proper format (e.g. RAW) will lead to disqualification.
2 Smartpohone-Contest: for the smartphone contest the Wiener Fotomarathon app (iOS and Android) must be installed. In the app the pictures can be taken in a different sequence and can be edited. For each theme a picture from the gallery must be selected and uploaded. Uploading of images not taken during the Wiener Fotomarathon is not allowed. After uploading all pictures the participation must be completed in the app. The access data of the app will be sent out via email after receipt of payment of the registration fee.
