Print Entry submissions

Print Entries are entered by submitting a Jpeg image of your print On-line at https://compent.photoentry.uk/compent/.

The Jpeg image that you submit needs to be the same as if you were submitting a Projected image File for competition.

If you create a folder to put all your Print jpeg copies in, it will make it easier to submit the jpegs with your entry.

By submitting projected image sized jpegs with your entry, you will enable everyone to see a gallery of what prints were entered after the competition.

Also by submitting a projected image sized jpeg of each print with your entry, you will in effect be keeping a visual copy of your print entries.

 

Projected Image submissions
Images must be as follows

(a) File must be = 8 bit JPEG
(b) Colour Profile = sRGB

(c) Max image width = 1920 pixels
(d) Max image height = 1080 pixels
