Waiver of Liability

Submission of an image for inclusion in any Mid-Atlantic Photo Visions competition or exhibit, constitutes the photographer’s assumption of all risk. Every precaution will be taken to safeguard photographs. However, it is expressly stated that the participating camera clubs, juror(s), sponsors, lecturers and volunteers accept no liability in the event of loss or damage.

Right to Use

By submitting images to this competition you agree that Mid-Atlantic Photo Visions may use the submitted image(s) only for exhibit at Mid-Atlantic Photo Visions and for promotional purposes in printed and online media.


Camera Clubs

Members of the MAPV clubs as of June 1st are eligible to submit images to the MAPV competition and to receive a discount on registration for the Expo in that calendar year. People who join one of the member clubs after June 1st can submit images to the competition but are not eligible for the discount on registration; they will however be eligible for the discount the following year.

General Rules

Membership in multiple clubs does not confer the right to make more than six Nature entries and six Photo Art entries.

By submitting your images for digital judging, and the event is in-person, you agree that if any image is selected for display you agree to volunteer for at least one shift of two hours during the event. Note: There is not a requirement to volunteer in 2021 because our event is 100% virtual.

The photography standards of the Mid-Atlantic Photo Visions are extremely high. Photographers are asked to be selective, submitting only their superior photographs.

All photographs juried into the Nature or Photo Art Exhibits become ineligible for consideration in a future juried exhibit. Images juried into any previous exhibit or its predecessor exhibits are also ineligible for consideration. Photographers who violate this prohibition will be not be allowed to submit images to the following year’s competitions. The same image may not be submitted for both the Nature and Photo Art competitions.

Images containing nudity or thought to be overtly graphic or otherwise inappropriate for public display to an audience of all ages will be removed. Images containing copyright notices will also be removed. All submitted images will be reviewed to ensure they comply with the Nature or Photo Art rules, as appropriate.

Image upload begins in mid-August and ends in mid-September. Up until one week before the close of submissions, photographers will be notified of rejected images and replacements may be submitted for as long as online uploads are being accepted. Unfortunately, due to the high number of submissions in the last week before the deadline we cannot request replacements during this period.

Upload Information

Images uploaded will be reviewed for appropriate content and to ensure they are submitted according to the rules of the competition.
