Please Note - Digital copies of your print entries must be submitted online or your prints will not be considered for competition.
Preparing Projected Images
Submit your Projected Images online using the page Submit Images to a Competition as described above.
Projected images must meet the following restrictions. The maximum width of an image is 1920 pixels. The maximum image height is 1280 pixels. This means vertically oriented images should not be taller than 1280 pixels. The file must be in JPG format (.jpg, .JPG). It is recommended that sRGB color space be used, though it is not required. The maximum title length: 40 characters.
Turn in your prints to the Print Chairperson(s) at the competition meeting which is the first meeting of each month.
Prints must be mounted, but do not need to be matted.
The print mount shall not be larger than 16”x20” or smaller than 5”x7” for Advanced and Master Classes. There are no limitations for the print size other than it must not be larger than the mount.
For Beginner Class, the print mount shall not be larger than 11”x14” or smaller than 5”x7”. The print may not be larger than 8 ½”x11”.
The title, maker’s UserID and competition class must be on the back in the upper left corner. The maker’s name must not appear on the print or print label. Maximum title length: 40 characters. A tool that will print completed labels is available at the bottom of the color and monochrome print submission pages. Cover over any prior labels so that only one label is visible.
Please make sure that there is no exposed adhesive on either the tape being used to hold the mat or on the plastic sleeve used to protect the image. This can cause damage to other images as well as yours.
It is recommended that your name be put on sleeves in case they are separated from the print.
It is requested that members refrain from using honeycomb or foam filled board as a mat or mount. Using honeycomb or foam filled board is bulky and takes up too much space in the shipping containers. You may use 1/8″ foam core if you are not matting your image.
