    Could you please clarify “undoctored digital photos”?
    Is this to say images straight-out-of-the-camera, or simply images that aren’t wildly photoshopped?

    Good question, Emil. It means not photoshopped so much that the image is materially altered beyond what the camera captured. Minor corrections are OK.

    For digital images, is there is minimum/maximum size for the file?

    BJ Stacey: For the judging, we just need to be able to see the image clearly on our screens. If it’s chosen for publication, we might ask for larger image if it’s too small.

    By deadline, do you mean they must be in your possession by the 27th, or can they be postmarked by the 27th?

    Can they be delivered directly yo your offices?

    We mean in our hands on the 27th, but if it shows up the next day, that’s fine. However, we’re moving our office on the 28th and 29th. And, yes, it can be hand-delivered:

    3550 Camino del Rio North, Suite 207, in Mission Valley.

    How to deliver digital photo? Email or mail a CD?

    Martha, yes, you may do that as long as it fits on a standard-size scanner.

    Henry, we’d prefer a mailed or dropped-off disc, but if you don’t think you can do that by the Monday deadline, go ahead and e-mail it to
