During the smart phone/tablet category trial period, each member may submit a single smart phone/tablet captured image for both judging and commentary. Smart Phone/Tablet First Place and Most Popular Certificates will be awarded during the trial period. For the purposes of judging and commentary the submitted Smart phone/tablet images shall be considered as Open category images.All submitted images in the Smart Phone/Tablet Category shall meet the following requirements:
- Be captured using a smart phone or tablet with an internal camera.
- Post processing of the image must be accomplished in the smart phone or tablet using internal photography application(s).

firstname.lastname@example.org with Subject Field titled: Smart Phone Entry and with the name of the maker and title of the image in the text field of the E-mail.
It is recommended that the submitted smart phone/tablet images be captured at the highest quality/resolution setting available in the smart phone or tablet. As with all digital night submissions, the smart phone/tablet images will be normalized (1920 x 1200 pixels) by the digital director for optimal digital projection viewing.
During the Smart Phone/Tablet category trial period, the current Digital Night submission rules are revised to allow a smart phone/tablet submission plus single images submitted from two of the four existing digital night categories (Assignment, Altered Reality, Creatures, Open) or a smart phone/tablet submission in addition two images submissions from any single category.
At the completion of the Smart Phone/Table Category trial, a member survey will be conducted to determine if there is interest in having smart phone/tablet images as additional digital submission category or to retain the current rules allowing digital night submissions in any of the existing four judging/commentary categories captured without regard to the type of camera used or method of post processing.
