-For the Prints and Projected Image competitions the best two scoring images from the best 5 competitions count towards the awards.
-Points for Photographer of the year shall be obtained from all entries in the two categories prints and projected.
-Judges shall award 20 points for the winning image in each category and shall base the points for all other entries on how close they are to the winning image.
-No points are awarded for the Print and Projected Image of the Year competitions, instead the judge is encouraged to choose 1st, 2nd and 3rd and award Highly Commended and Commended to other pictures as he sees fit.
-Digital images for projection can either be submitted in the format below to the competition secretary on hand in evening or emailed to the competition secretary by 22.00 on the hand in evening at the latest. It is important that you receive a receipt note if emailing and please keep e-mail sizes down to a maximum of 2Mb. You can arrange to submit entries early if you are unavailable on the hand in date
-Our projector has a resolution of 1400 pixels wide by 1050 pixels high. To see your pictures at their best they should be resized to fit these dimensions. So if your picture is landscape in format it should not be more than 1400 pixels wide and 1050 high. If it is in portrait format it should not be more than 1050 pixels high. Recommended ratio is 72ppi (pixels per inch)
-Images should not have your name in the file name or on the picture. Please see that the file is named in the following sequence for our internal competitions.
Your Competition number_competition date_your picture title. Thus the name could look like :- A456_27_October_landscape.jpg
- Please remove all personal references from the metadata before submission.
- Images can be submitted as .jpg or .tif If you use jpgs do use quality 12. If you are using tiffs then flatten all layers, remove any alpha channels, and use 8-bit colour and no compression. If you are emailing entries do use jpg to avoid bandwidth problems.
-The images must be RGB NOT CMYK Convert your images to sRGB colour space.
