3e) There will be an allocation of 20 shortlist places each month, however these will be carried over to the next month if unused. The maximum number of entries that will be shortlisted at the end of each month is as follows: April = 50, May = 70, June = 90, July = 110, August = 130, September = 150 (maximum number of places on shortlist).

4) Entry subject matter is limited to:

**Air to Air photography will not be accepted.

5) Entries which are "too similar" to a previously shortlisted entry will not be accepted for shortlisting.

6) Entries must be a minimum of 1MB in size. The calendar uses a 2 x 1 landscape format (2250px * 1125px), therefore this is the recommended format for submission. Due to confusion in previous years and to ensure all entries are rated equally - this is now the only format which will be accepted. Please ensure a minimum file size of 2250 x 1125 pixels or larger.

(2* 1 ratio used for calendar)

7f) was taken earlier than 1st January 2014 (Early Entry Phase) OR 1st January 2015 (Main Phase).

Please note that entries which were taken as part of a burst, and therefore virtually indistinguishable from any image -
OR are a derivative of an image (i.e background replaced whilst subject matter remains) -
will be treated as the same as any image as described above.

8) Any entries found to breach rule 7) OR found not to be the work of the entrant (stolen or otherwise) will be disregarded and the entrant banned from further participation. Airscene will not tolerate cheating and will treat all information provided in relation to such breaches very seriously.
