Student is work made while doing any course, either an MA, Doctorate or other. So, if you already graduated but you work was done during an academic year, you can send it as student.

Unfortunately we have many expenses with the jury, our annual book and site maintenance, the Awards certificates and more, wich adds to thousands of dollars. So, we really need to be paid for the competition. But we have one of the lowest fees in the market, starting at just $22 (and students can send 5 images for this fee).
Do I have to pay any more fees if I am awarded?
No. The starting price is the competition's only expense. You don't have to pay more to be in the catalog or online gallery.
I tried to upload the images and they got distorted in the preview. Are they OK?
Yes, we receive the images OK. It is just the view when the images are uploaded.
