Qualifications for Images


Each competing club representative shall upload the qualifying images to the designated website. For any portraits, a model release form is provided. Entrants can use portrait images without a model release, but winning images will not be displayed on the web.

Each image must have the following maximum size: Horizontal images will be no more than 1024 pixels wide or 768 pixels tall. Vertical images will be no more than 768 pixels tall. (Unless your image proportions are in the exact ratio of 4 to 3, one of these dimensions will be less than the maximum. The images will be projected as received, as long as not over the maximum.) Save the file in jpeg format only. (There are no file size restrictions.) sRGB color space is recommended for optimum results.

The photographic work must be the maker’s, commercial clip art is not allowed. The category is General, and includes Alterations.



Images shall be scored from 1 to 5, with the maximum total score of 15 possible. 20% of the scores will be eligible for honors, based on highest scores. The judges will select approximately one half for Honorable Mention, and one half for Award. Finally, from the awards only, one image will be selected as Best of Show.
