Projected Digital Imaging (PDI) Requirements
Prepared images need to be sized to fit our projection system, saved in the jpeg format and named correctly.
If you require any assistance please speak to a committee member.
Sizing, resolution and colour space
Image size is: maximum width 1400 pixels, maximum height 1050 pixels. Resolution may be set to 72dpi, although this will have no effect on the image.
Entries via the website are limited to 2MB per image file.
The image file must be saved in the sRGB colour space.
Note:- Images of less than the maximum pixel size will be projected with a black background to fill the blank area.
Image format must be JPEG (preferably best quality).
The image filename must as follows: The image title shall be in - CAPITAL LETTERS - followed by a space, then 'by' then another space followed by the photographer’s competition number as shown in the example below. (Do not include your division number in the file name or use leading zeros).
Example filename: THE SKY AT NIGHT by 88.jpg
Note: The maximum number of characters (including spaces) for the 'title' is 65.
Method of submission
Entries should be uploaded via this website - see links opposite.
The projection equipment is calibrated to sRGB colour space. To help you check the calibration of your equipment it is suggested that adjust your screen settings to the target grey scale image below, a start. If you would like your screen calibrated with a hardware device (recommended) please speak to a member of the committee.
When uploading, please note:
Each JPEG image may not exceed 2MB in size
The total batch upload limit is 6MB. If the sum of the sizes of your submissions exceeds 6MB please split the upload into multiple batches
If you experience any issues with uploading, please email your images to the Web Administrator
