Digital Projected Image Competitions
Members may enter a total of four images into a monthly competition with a maximum of two images in any one category and a maximum of three printed images and a maximum of two projected images. Categories are defined below. Media are defined as Digital/Projected and Print. Until print competitions resume with in-person meetings, the maximum number of images allowed to be entered in a monthly competition is two.
In both Nature Projected Images, Creative Projected Images, Travel Projected Images and Journalism Projected Images, an Image Sequence is allowed. An Image Sequence is several images that should be treated as a single image and viewed in a specific order. There is a maximum of three images to an Image Sequence. An image sequence must be submitted in a special way which you can learn about here. An image sequence is considered a single image.
Any image may be resubmitted ONE time, provided it did not place in competition the first time submitted. Place is defined as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or Honorable Mention.
All images must be .jpg files and must fit within a 1920 wide x 1200 tall pixel matrix. That means the maximum is 1920 on the long side for a Landscape orientation and 1200 on the long side for a portrait orientation.
When converting to jpg from another format (RAW or TIFF, for example), the resolution looks best if set between 100 and 138 pixels per inch for projecting. Higher densities look better for printing, but worse for projecting images.
Colors look the best when the digital images submitted use ProPhoto RGB color space. If your photo editor gives you this option (as does Photoshop & Lightroom), please select this color space for your digital submissions. If your photo editor does not have that option, competitions can actually accept photos in any color space.
The Image Uploading Instructions and Upload Tutorial (this is a large document and may take a few minutes to download) can be downloaded in PDF format.
Digital Entry Deadline: 5pm on the Saturday before a competition (see the calendar).
