Competition Guidelines

Digital Projected Image Competition
1. Digitally projected images must be submitted as JPEGs and received by midnight the Monday before the competition. Email them to

2. Digitally projected images should be 1024 pixels wide (maximum horizontal allowed dimension) or 768 pixals tall (maximum allowed vertical dimension) JPEG images.  Images may be entered in each of three categories but no more than 2 per category.  Remember, total of three digital & printed images combined are allowed.

The file naming convention is “image title – category – makers first initial and last name”

Example: Gee Whiz – O – BSinger …where “Gee Whiz” is the title for an Open category image by Bob Singer. Note dashes, NOT underscoring lines — are used to separate the three file name segments. No underscores should separate words, just dashes for segments. You should NOT include your competition class in the title (this may change in the future, but we’ll give lots of notice).

If you need instructions on how to save your digital images and correct size:

Print Competition:

  • Bring your print entries with you, but early enough to enter that evening before the meeting begins.
  • These must be matted and properly labeled on the rear. (Yes, they may be clear-bagged to protect the matted from labels).
  • Labels are available at the entry table prior to the meeting if you do not yet have any.
  • The only acceptable size is 16×20 including mat (or drymounted without mat).
  • NOTE: You are allowed to enter up to 3 images, but no more than 2 images per category.
