2016 Nov. 16: Digital Contest – OPEN

Our next competition will be this Wednesday, November 16, 2016.

  • We will have our DIGITAL
  • The theme this month is OPEN, so anything goes.
  • You may enter three digital images.
  • Competition rules, which include how to prepare your digital entries; are posted on our websitehttp://arundelcameraclub.org/rules-summary/
  • Email your digital entries in by Tuesday, at noon. Remember that the email address to send your digital entries to iscontests@arundelcameraclub.org.
  • Send your images as email attachments. Mac users need to put their images in a zip file and attach the zip file to the email.
  • Resize your images to 1024 pixels on the long side (1024 x ??? or ??? x 1024).
  • Files should be named according to the following convention:
    • A class identifier, ‘n’ for novice or ‘u’ for unlimited, should prepend the file name and be followed by an underscore.
    • The image name should appear next. For multi-word titles, it is helpful to either capitalize the first letter of each word or separate each word with an underscore. Although most mechanisms of uploading/transferring/emailing files handle spaces in titles, this is not universal. If you have problems sending files with space-separated titles, try the methods mentioned above instead.
    • An underscore and the owner’s first and last initials should follow the title.
    • Finally, make sure the file extension (.jpg) exists.
    • Examples: Here are file name samples using the above convention:
      • jpg
      • jpg
      • jpg
      • n_some have trouble with this_cb.jpg
    • We will send you an email to confirm we have received your images and that they are named and sized appropriately. If you do not receive a confirmation, please contact the contest chairman atcontests@arundelcameraclub.org.
    • If all else fails, you may bring your images to the meeting on a USB drive, but we may not be able to put them into the contest.
