Club DPI Competition Entry. (Up to 3 images)
1, Maximum Size 1920 pixels x 1080 pixels as a landscape, and portraits 1080 pixels high.
Do not exceed this size, if your finished image ratio does not marry this size perfectly eg 1920 x 1200. Resize it so that the 1200 pixel height is 1080 pixels high the width will then, (keeping the same proportions as the original image) be smaller than 1920 pixels wide. There is no need to add a large infill black border along the smaller sized side as the competition software does this automatically.
2, Colour space : sRGB
This is required as the projector and competition software uses this colour space. If your image is RGB the colour won't be projected as you wish it to be, it will loose it's vibrance in colour. It is recommended that you change your image colour space to sRGB before you start any work on it, that way you are working an image which as you progress to the finished point will look as you wish it to be projected. Please note Raw images straight out of camera do not have any colour space attached, it's when you take it through the raw converter that a colour space is attached but you can specify which it is. If you shoot in Jpeg most cameras can be set so they come out of the camera as sRGB straight away.
Please title your 3 images like this “01 title.jpeg, 02 title.jpeg, 03 title.jpeg.”.
Please put a space after the number and then spaces between the words of your title. So your first image titled “Hitting the Water Splash” would look like this “01 Hitting the Water Splash.jpeg” please note that the jpeg portion will be generated by the computer.
4, Submitting your entries. (During Covid-19 restrictions submit by email only)
Put your images into a folder with just your name on it, no membership number is required. Copy that folder on to a pen drive/memory stick and hand it in by the closing date. Please make sure your pen drive has your name on the outside of it so it's returned to you. No entry form is required. Alternatively you can email your images to the competition secretary, (Keith Sharples), firstname.lastname@example.org If emailing, your images should not be in a folder. Use a 'new' email to send your images (not a reply to an old one). Keith will acknowledge your entry, if you have not heard back from him in two days please check that he has received your entry.
Your Web Gallery Images (max 20) Any member can have a gallery if they wish.
Any image you wish to have in your online gallery should be at least 1800 pixels on the longest side landscape or portrait (larger is fine). They need to be jpegs and titled using an underscore where a space in the title would be, so your Image titled “A Splash of Red” would look like this “A_Splash_of_Red.jpeg” No need to number them or add your membership number. Please email them direct to Lyn: email@example.com and say they are for your web gallery. Over time you can update your gallery sending new images and asking for old ones to be removed. Bi-monthly Website Competition. This is open to all members. Maximum of 2 images.
Please size and title the same as web gallery images (see above) and again send them direct to Lyn. Make sure you say that they are for the Bimonthly Website Competition.
We may use gallery images and competition images (after the competition has run) elsewhere on the web site eg. on the home page slide show. Please let us know if you don't want your images used in this way.
