Photos that have been published or posted in other photography competitions or public media for profit, or photos that have won awards in other competitions are not eligible.

    Submission guideline

    Participants upload their entries and choose any suitable category for each entry. The entrants must submit works that fit the category that they have chosen, i.e., Landscape, Portrait, Colours, Unfading Moment, Fashion, Snapshot, Light, Travel, and Collection. Each user can only submit 15 entries at most per category.

    A single photo is considered one entry, and uploading single images with repeated or overly similar content is not allowed. The entrants are allowed to submit the same photo to different categories, but each submission will be counted as one entry. The entries must be original images with complete EXIF data.

    If there is any dispute on the intellectual property rights such as copyright, and the original photo can’t be provided, the organizer has the right to disqualify the entry. Participants’ submissions must not be derogatory, offensive, threatening, defamatory, disparaging, libelous or contain any content that is inappropriate, sexual, profane, tortuous, slanderous, discriminatory, or promotes hatred or harm against any group or person, contain any illegal information of a political, pornographic, or violent nature or which may be deemed to support terrorism, or include any disparaging remarks relating to a third party, or is disruptive to public social order and morality.

    Entries that violate the above-mentioned rules will not be displayed or judged. To encourage participation from young photographers aged 18 to 24, the competition has established the OPPO imagine IF Youth Special Award.

    Entries should be submitted under the Youth Special category, each entry with a single photo and the subject is not limited. Entrants must be within the specified age range at the time of submission. When being considered for this award, winners will be required to submit proof of age. This award is separate from the other competition categories, and qualified entrants for the award may also concurrently submit entries to other categories.

    Specific requirements of the entries

    The entries must be taken with OPPO devices, including all models of OPPO phones and OnePlus phones. The photos should not be altered in any desktop image processing program such as Photoshop and Lightroom. Moderate post-processing on the photos is permissible, such as adjusting the brightness, contrast, white balance, saturation, etc.

    Composite images that change the original content of the photo are not acceptable. Complete EXIF data must be retained. Only photos in JPG are accepted. The submission should not be smaller than 1000 pixels in width, and the size of a single photo should be larger than 1M and not exceed 20M.
