Anyone may enter. There are two categories: under 18 and 18+. Entrants must own all rights to the photographs submitted. As such, entrants hold the AANB and the contest sponsors harmless from any breach of copyright. Photographs that violate or infringe upon another person’s copyright are not eligible.
