May I use my mobile to take the photo?

Submissions must be saved as .jpg, at a MINIMUM of 5 MP (megapixel). Given your phone’s specifications fulfills these guidelines, photos taken with a mobile phone may enter the competition. However, due to the high standard entries we receive every month, and the fact that your photo will be eligible to be exhibited and sold, we recommend you take photos with a more advanced lens (point-and-shoot or SLR cameras).

Why don’t you upload all photos on Facebook?

Why don’t you upload all photos on Facebook?

MuscArt receives well over 300 photo entries every month; we simply cannot post all entries on our page. Submitted photos will be anonymously judged by a team of professional photographers and not via online voting. We believe this provides the fairest opportunity for everyone to be judged by the quality of their entry and not by the amount of Facebook friends “like” their photo. Should we receive a large amount of high standard entries we will give recognition by showcasing our favourites on our page.
