Please follow the instructions carefully regarding the preparation of your images.
Prepare your images using these specifications BEFORE you start the entry process!
- Crop the image. No mat, frame, or extraneous material should appear. Now make a copy
of this image (SAVE AS). Keep the original for your own records.
- Resize the copy image with a resolution of 300 dpi to a length of 900 pixels on the longest side.
- Save this copy now with a new filename, as follows: Lastname_firstinitial_phototitle. You may have to alter the title as it appears in the filename of the image file only. For example if your name is
Jane Doe and your photograph is titled Early Sunday Morning, the filename you would give to the digital image is:
Doe_J_EarlySundayMorning.jpg. But during the entry process, you would type in the actual Title of the photograph as Early Sunday Morning when asked for the Title, Price, Size, etc.
- Save the image as a high quality jpg. (Use the "Save As" function to select jpg and the highest quality.) The
image title will now end with .jpg For example: Doe_J_EarlySummerMorning.jpg
- Images not meeting the requirements may be disqualified. If your software does not give you the necessary
options to prepare your images as specified, consider buying Adobe Photoshop Elements (under $100) or get
someone who has the proper software to help you.
Name your image files
The title of each piece you submit appears in two places: (1) you type in the Title of the photograph in the space provided for the information about the piece; this will be just as you would wish the title to appear in the show catalog (e.g. My Uncle's Lonely Road), and (2) the title appears also as part of the filename you give to the digital image you will upload, and for this purpose you should remove any spaces, quotation marks, accents, special characters, etc. (e.g. MyUnclesLonelyRoad)
Use the following protocol for giving your image file a name for submission: Start with your last name, followed by an underscore, followed by your first initial, followed by another underscore, then the title of the image without spaces, then make sure it has the extension ".jpg".
For example: Armstrong_N_FirstStep.jpg.
Shorten long titles in the filename, please, and remove all spaces and quotation marks.
On the online entry form, remember to enter the Title of your piece in the space provided for that as you would wish the title to appear in the show catalog.
