Sepia toning is a specialized treatment to give the photograph a warmer tone and to enhance its archival qualities. Chemicals are used to convert the metallic silver in the print to a sulfide compound.
In this contest, your goal is to take your a photo with the sepia toning effect. Some cameras actually support this option and allow you to take photos directly with sepia toning applied. If your camera supports this, you can use this and mention in your description that no post-processing was involved. If your camera doesn't support it, digitally post-processing is exceptionally allowed in this contest. Don't forget to mention in your description that you used post-processing, and also mention the program used.

friiskiwi: Wasn't sepia always allowed, after all it's applied to the whole image. ( 5 years and 1937 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Yes, sepia has always been permitted as it is applied to the entire image. I believe the suggester of the contest however, wanted to be very specific. Do not forget, as the guidelines state, to mention whether is was done in camera or post processing... ( 5 years and 1937 days ago )
