This new competition has been included to embrace the world of images taken on a Mobile Phone or Tablet

Print Entry submissions

To get the best out of your print entry submission, it is best to create a small JPEG copy of the print you are entering.
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 = 1600 pixels

(d) Max image height = 1200 pixels

please make sure your titles are names as follows.
N1_TITLE by Chris Newham
