Wildlife Photography Code of Ethics
Photo entries of animals in captivity or in conditions that are unnatural are not permitted.
Use of live bait to attract or control subjects is not permitted.
Pet or farm animals and commercially cultivated plants are not classified as natural for the purposes of the Competition and must not be represented in any photo entries.
Habitat disturbance should always be kept to a minimum when in natural surroundings. Entrants must ensure that they minimise any impact that their presence has on the subject and its surrounding environment.
Any existing conservation requirements must be obeyed, and local laws upheld.
Drone photography is acceptable, but should be performed in such a way as to not interfere with or overly stress the subject animal(s).
We reserve the right to disqualify any photo entries where the entrant is suspected of having engaged in any unethical practice in connection with the photo entry.
