The photo competition is organized by the AG Chamäleons in der DGHT e.V. Every member of the AG Chamäleons can participate. You can become a member here. A participant takes part in the photo competition by uploading a photo as a digital image file on the website of AG Chamäleons. By uploading the photo, the participant agrees to the conditions of participation. Participation must take place within the deadline stated in the photo competition.

The following information must be provided for each photo submitted:

  • First name and surname

The participant assures that he/she alone holds all rights to the submitted photo and that the photo was taken by him/her personally. Participation with photos taken by other persons is not permitted. In order to participate in the photo competition, it is imperative that all information provided is true. Failure to do so may result in exclusion.


/ Requirements for submitted photos

A submitted image must be at least 1000 pixels wide. The file size must not exceed 25 MB.  The photo must show one or more chameleons. Post-processing of the image with an appropriate program (for example Adobe Photoshop or Gimp) is allowed as long as the original character of the motif is preserved. Collages are not permitted.

/ Use of the submitted photos

All submitted photos will be published as part of the conference report and/or subsequent photo competitions as well as on the website www.agchamaeleons.de, if desired with or without attribution.

During the meeting of the AG Chamäleons, the participants of the meeting will determine the winning photos by means of a secret ballot by majority vote. Each participant has three votes. The winners will be announced on the Saturday of the conference. The legal process is excluded. Prizes in kind can only be awarded to members of the AG who are present on that day. If a winner of the photo competition is not present in person or declines to receive a prize, the prize will be given to the person whose photo received the next most votes in the count.   In the event of a tie, the winner will be decided by lot.
