Contest Rules

Surfaces and Textures - Rust ChallengeThis challenge features close-ups and detail images of things with rust on the surface.


This is fascinating subject with lots of scope - rust can be found on door knobs, walls, equipment, storage bins, in all kinds of areas. Rust comes in many colours - gold for new rust, bronze, to dark browns.

The focus is RUST - the details of its textures and variations on surfaces.

NO LANDSCAPES - no sky, no shore, no trees, no houses in a landscape, no buildings in the landscape, no cars in a field landscape, no rusty barn roofs from a distance, no farm equipment set in a landscape. No rooms filled with furniture with rusty walls.

No companions in the images like flowers, birds, leaves that share the image story. We are focusing on RUST itself. The group focuses on the surface and textures of things only.

No people - they are not rusty. They distract from the appreciation of the details of rust itself.

No black and white image of rust - this is hard to moderate.

Show us your best images that showcase the surface and texture that has rust!
