GCC By-Law 6.5.3
This section allows digital manipulation provided the content of the image appears as a natural and realistic photographic image.
A uniform monochrome presentation based on black or any other colour is regarded as realistic, but use of partial or full monochrome in limited areas of a colour print is not regarded as realistic. (e.g. “Colour popping”)
Prints not complying with the above-mentioned conditions must be presented in the “Altered Reality” section. (If there is no Altered Reality Section in that month, the image will be rejected).
