Truth in Captioning Guidelines

How to Caption Images for the Share the View International Nature Photography Competition

We follow a Truth in Captioning protocol for entries in the Share the View International Nature Photography Competition. Captive subjects and photo manipulated images should be marked according to the definitions below, checking the appropriate boxes on your Share the View entry form:


Abbreviated "Capt," this term applies to any living creature in a zoo, rehabilitation facility or other environment where it isn't free to come and go on its own. Game farm images are not allowed, even with a captive designation. Game farms are defined as private for-profit operations whose primary income is generated from hiring out captive animals for photography, videography or filmmaking.


Abbreviated "P.I.", this term applies if the material content of the photo is changed or altered beyond normal processing techniques. Addition or removal of content is also interpreted as "P.l." as it changes the scene that was in front of the camera. Whether it's a branch at the edge of a frame or an entire tree, removal of content is "P.I."

Cropping is acceptable and not defined as photo illustration. Panoramas, HDR, and focus stacks do not need to be designated as photo illustration.
