Creative/Altered can include any of the following:

• Abstracts: photographs that emphasize something other than the literal subject, such as line, form, shape, light, shadow, or other abstract elements.
• Digital Manipulations: photographs that have been obviously modified through software, filters, and other techniques.
• Composites: images created from elements from two or more photographs. The composite may not incorporate elements produced by anyone other than the maker. Artwork, text or computer graphics generated by the entrant may be incorporated if the original photographic content predominates. Images may not be constructed entirely within a computer.
