Our next competition will be this Wednesday, October 8, 2014. We will have our Digital competition. You may enter three digital images.

The theme this month is WILDLIFE. The guidance to the judge will be “Any photograph whose main subject is an animal. This includes all kinds of animals including insects, fish, etc.; but not people. This year we decide NOT TO ALLOW domesticated pets, animals in a zoo, or on a farm. Acceptable wildlife shots could range from the wilds of Alaska to the birds and insects in your garden.”

Competition rules, which include how to prepare your digital, slide, and print entries; are also posted on our website http://arundelcameraclub.org/rules-summary/

  • Digital – email your digital entries in by Tuesday, at noon. We will confirm receipt of them. Remember that the email address to send your digital entries to is contests@arundelcameraclub.org.

Please send your images as email attachments.

Please 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:

See you Wednesday night.
