Nature (Royal Show Topic)
Nature photography depicts living, untamed animals and uncultivated plants in a natural habitat, geology and the wide diversity of natural phenomena, from insects to icebergs. Photographs of animals which are domesticated, caged or under any form of restraint, as well as photographs of cultivated plants are ineligible …… see forum post for more.
NOTE: Be aware that they are asking for no sign of human intervention.
This topic is covered by landscape, wild life photography.
It sounds like early morning and evening shoots.
Filters and long lenses for wild life images.

Don't forget we have no print topic as we have our third mini-workshop. Nick Melidonis will be presenting on post-processing principles focusing on creative workflow.

This will be a great introduction to his post-processing workshops on Saturday 29th at the Sanctuary for those that have booked in.

This is very last-minute but could be helpful to others...
I was seeking clarification on what "uncultivated" means and whether the inclusion of non-native plants (aka weeds) in a natural environment would result in an exclusion of an image.
As far as I can ascertain, "uncultivated" means 'not planted intentionally' which would include weedy plant types if they are in a natural environment. Therefore, "uncultivated" plants can include non-native species as long as they haven't been planted purposefully or are under cultivation.

Does anyone have any additional thoughts on this?

Hi Julie,

Just putting my 2 cents worth in here. Too late for club night entry but if you're thinking of submitted to other competitions.

I'm sure that for PGoB your conclusion would be acceptable. Looking at other competitions like the Perth Nationals and further afield you may have trouble with a non-native being accepted but I guess that once again it comes back to the judges interpretation and also knowledge of plants. At the end of the day if it's a plant of a cultivated variety no matter where it is found it has been cultivated. That's just my opinion, could well be wrong!!!
Cheers Chris
