The following guidelines explain the required specifications for each category at the different stages of the competition and exhibition. Please ensure that your entries adhere to these guidelines. If any further queries, please check the HELP & FAQs section or contact the exhibition organisers by email.
- Still Photographs– initial entry: all still photographs must be submitted as JPEGs, saved at a high quality level, e.g. 10 in Adobe Photoshop, with a maximum file size of 0.5MB. Each image file must be named with your surname, first name and brief title e.g. SmithJohn_Title.jpeg. Whilst work titles may be too long to be used as image names, a section of your title would be adequate.
- Films – initial entry: entrants are required to provide an HTML link in order to view the full film via YouTube, Vimeo or similar. Each clip should be a minimum of 5 seconds and a maximum of 1 minute long, and can include an audio track. The HTML link must be labelled in such a way that it is easily identifiable as your work, i.e. include your name in the file link. If your Vimeo account is password protected please paste the password into the ‘Vimeo Password (if applicable)’ field for that entry on the entry form. Please do not paste it in with the link, as this will corrupt the link.
