GUIDELINES FOR DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPETITION

Competition Guidelines

• All classes are open to all members.

• All entries must be the work of the entrant.

• The subject matter does not have to be the entrant’s own work

• Colour or mono-chrome images may be entered.

• Images should be sent in jpeg format

• The minimum image size required is 2000 px on the longest side at 300 dpi

• No manipulation except basic overall adjustment faithful to the original image is allowed, except in Class 4

• Images and entry form should be sent as an attachment, not inserted into the body of the email. Each image should be sent in separate emails (this is due to limitations on size of attachments allowed in emails)

• Memory sticks or CD’s with images will be allowed although email entries are preferred

• Images should be sent full size when using programmes such as Picassa, Google or certain printers to email their entries. Such programmes often send images at the smallest size by default.

• Entry fee should be paid by cheque, with entry form by post to Competition Secretary. Once the cheque and entry form have been received, the images will be entered into the Competition.

• The Competition Secretary reserves the right to crop or otherwise digitally manipulate winning images in order to enhance them for display.

• Images should be titled with Class number plus image number and title of image

e.g. Class 01_Image 01_Image title
Class 01_Image 02_Image title

Class 02_Image01_Image title
