Nature photography is restricted to photos that depict all branches of natural history, except anthropology and archaeology, in such a fashion that a well-informed person will be able to identify the subject material. The story telling value of a photo must be weighed more than the pictorial quality while maintaining high technical quality. Human elements shall not be present, except where those human elements are integral parts of the nature story such as nature subjects, like barn owls or storks, adapted to an environment modified by humans, or where those human elements are in situations depicting natural forces, like hurricanes or tidal waves. Scientific bands, scientific tags or radio collars on wild animals are permissible. Photos of human created hybrid plants, cultivated plants, feral animals, domestic animals, or mounted specimens are ineligible. Photos may be color or grey-scale monochrome.
