Nature Rules

Nature rules have been agreed by the main Photographic bodies, the RPS, the PAGB and FIAP. They should be followed at all times when entering Nature images. Note that the image title usually distinguishes Nature because it is the name of the subject, sometimes followed by the Latin name; there should be no “twee” titles in Nature.
