Sending Digital Versions of Competition Entries for the Website

 

If you have an image placed 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or highly commended in a competition, and you are happy for it to appear in the club website, please send a digital file of it to the webmaster, Alan Sawyer, as soon as possible. Could you please size it the same as for a competition PDI, ie 1400 pixels on the horizontal axis and 1050 pixels on the vertical axis.

It would save me a lot of work if you could please re-name your files using the following format exactly; ie note the use of initial capital letters, including for every word in the title, (including ‘The’, ‘Of’, etc)  spaces, hyphens etc.

Please don’t use the sort of variations that are frequently sent to me like: ‘1st’ instead of ‘First’;  or ‘Highly Commended’ instead of ‘HC’; or ‘B&W’ instead of ‘Monochrome’.  It’s bad for my blood pressure!

I ask this because it looks far better if the images are titled uniformly when they come up in the slide shows that the website offers.  Even slight variations start to look tatty.

It might be easiest to copy and paste from the comprehensive list below and then make changes as necessary.  I have used the names of some really interesting photographers, past and present, whose work is well worth a look.
