Wishing to participate in the competition, Xiaomi will have to submit photos in one of four categories: “Portraits”, “Landscapes”, “Night scene” and “Creative photo”.
The first category includes photos in the areas of “People/Selfie/Portrait”. The second category of photos should be captured “Nature/City/still life”. The participants in the third category will be sent to evaluation of the pictures taken at night or in low light conditions. The fourth category of participants will call on public display community images in the “lifestyle/Humor/Perspective”.
