“KLIKE SOU” Photography Contest

The AISAT photography contest “KLIKE SOU” is organized to promote the art, science and fun of photography. We allow and encourage all types of photography. We love to see new photography and watch our users experiment with creative styles and techniques. We are device agnostic, happy to see images from full-frame DSLRs. Our biggest ask is that the photos stay true to your personal vision and to what you saw. Please avoid heavy-handed processing. We want to see the world through your eyes, not through the excessive use of editing tools. Below are the rules and regulations of the contest.
