Competition guidelines

  1. The main purpose of each competition is to gain feedback on your images from the invited guest speaker (or the EMUP Panel). Each speaker normally offers constructive advice on all images submitted.
  2. Each month, Gold, Silver and Bronze is awarded to the best three images based on a vote by the members who attend on the evening.
  3. There are two categories for entry. Everyone entering a photo is entered in the Open category, which is for everyone. Photos taken on compact cameras are also entered into the Compact only category.
  4. To enter a photo, which must be taken by you, please resize a jpeg image to a maximum width of 1024 and a maximum height of 768 pixels and 72 dpi. There is an excellent article on the BSoUP website by Alex Mustard which explains how to adjust your image and laying out portfolios http://www.bsoup.org/Open_Portfolio/digiguide.php
  5. The photos will be projected using a Powerpoint presentation on a black background, so you will need to decide whether your photo could benefit from a narrow white boundary to enhance its projection especially if it has dark areas around the edges.
  6. Please do not "watermark" images with your name.
  7. Please provide as much detail as possible on the form about when and where the photo was taken as well as making sure that the EXIF data is attached to your jpeg file.
  8. Entries must be submitted before midnight on the Tuesday, 7 days prior to the meeting (as indicated at the top of this page).
  9. By submitting your image(s), you are agreeing to your image being displayed on the Club website following the competition.
