The RAW category returns for the Image Quest 2021 and is for shots that are straight out of your camera, showing the real and original image. Everything is done in front of the lens, not on the screen. It is for imagery that doesn’t rely on editing or enhancements, it’s for the uncropped, untouched, and unchanged shots.
The submission phase starts on March 1, 2021, so get ready and start shooting now!
