Photo may be enhanced to compensate for technical quality and esthetics but should not be “doctored” (e.g. adding objects that were not originally in the picture).
Collages will be rejected.
A minimum resolution of 3600x2400 pixels is recommended but not required.
A limit of 1 photograph may be submitted for each competitor.
Submission of an entry to the competition automatically constitutes the acceptance of all conditions set forth in the above rules.
Incomplete entries will not be included in the competition.
Winners will be notified in November.
The city wants to use the photos to create an archive, though without seeing the "Use Agreement" mentioned in the rules, I can't tell if you are handing over the rights to the photo you enter or not.

*The flyer advertising the contest says "Montgomery's most inspiring buildings and places", so perhaps it can be a building or a place?
