Students compete by age group: 9th Grade & Below, 10-11-12th Grades (High School) and College & University levels. Students in 9th Grade & Below compete in single images only and the other student levels and teachers compete in both single images and portfolios. Prizes are awarded in each category at the Grand, First, Second and Third Prize levels and to the schools of the Grand Prize winners.
