SUBMITTING IMAGES AT NAPLES CAMERA CLUB
The competition process will go more quickly and efficiently if everyone has prepared their submissions correctly and abides by a few simple rules of procedure.
Be sure your prints have your name, class A or B, category and a title in the lower left corner – NOT on the front. (Section III, Rule 3 of the Competition Rules and Regulations states:
Rule 3: Prints must mounted and can include mats, however, they must not be framed. Prints must be a minimum of 11x14 to a maximum of 16x20 not including the mount. If matted, total size must not exceed 20x 24 (20" vertical). Signatures must be covered, but makers’ names should appear on the back of the print with their title and the category entered.
Section II. Process of competition of the Competition Rules & Regulations states: Members should submit their entries to the competition chairperson and his/her helpers at least 30 minutes before
the meeting begins.
Submitting Digital Images for projection:
All digital entries must follow the rules defined by the digital competition coordinator and as outlined in the Rules and Procedures.
Email images as an attachment to: firstname.lastname@example.org
For horizontal images, resize the horizontal dimension to 1024 pixels. If that results in a vertical dimension of 768 pixels or less, the image is ready to submit. If the resulting vertical dimension is more than 768 pixels, resize the vertical dimension to 768 pixels (which will result in a horizontal dimension less than 1024 pixels), and the image is ready to submit. For vertical and square images, resize the vertical dimension to 768 pixels, and the image is ready to submit. Don't worry about the resolution.
Convert files to JPEG … and when you get the quality screen, choose “maximum.” If your file is over 2MB in size then it’s probably too big; if it is 200K or less then it is a bit small. You can change the file size by changing the number at the jpeg quality screen.
Color profile setting should be sRGB.
Please name your file properly. After you save the file, rename it to the following format:
Title the image: “Your first and last name_Picture Title_ Category Title_Class.jpeg”
Example: BenFranklin_Blue Bird_ NatureBirds_Class A.jpeg
The category words to use are:
Nature/Other (no birds)
Class B (Novice) Class A (other).
Images should be emailed no later than 6:00 pm the Saturday before the meeting. Photos sent after this time will NOT be included in the competition.
