PDI Guidance

Entering PDIs for Competitions

A) You can enter up to 3 PDIs for all competitions.

B) You should email them to jerseyphotographicclub@gmail.com by midnight on the closing date for entries which is normally the Monday before the competition. Put the name of the Competition (e.g. First Quarterly, Macro Comp, Natural History Comp etc.) and your name in the title of your email.

C) You should save your image with the title name and the ranking A, B or C (The only time this is used is if we are oversubscribed and need to limit the number of entries - it will not be announced when the image is displayed)

D) Images should be saved in sRGB, 72dpi as JPEG, or TIFF. The maximum width is 1400px, max height 1050px. (If you have Lightroom it’s easy - just set up two export presets - one for Landscape with 1400px as max size for the long edge, and one for Portrait/Square, with 1050px as the max size for the long edge).

E) The images should be put in a folder with the photographer’s name.
