Please upload your annual exhibition entries. As a reminder, you can enter up to 6 images, which should be 1920 x 1080 maximum in jpeg and no bigger than 5MB. They can be of any subject and in mono or colour. The deadline for entries is Thursday 28th May.
Please note that you should enter in the class you are in for PDIs – that is, if you are in Advanced for prints and Intermediate for PDIs – you enter in Intermediate. The exhibition will be judged – you can find the list of awards on the previous Annual Exhibition post https://chichestercameraclub.org.uk/annual-exhibition-2021/. The special award for photographs taken in a 10 mile radius of the centre of Chichester must be of a recognisable location but otherwise can be of any subject. That is for instance, an image of the Bishop’s Garden can be entered, a single flower in the garden can’t.
Everyone is guaranteed that at least one of their submitted images will be included in the exhibition. While there is no requirement to make your entries into a panel (that is, work out how the images sit best next to each other) and unlike for the print exhibition we cannot accept suggested hanging plans from you this year, it will be very helpful in making the overall exhibition look good if you can think about submitting images that work sympathetically together.
This year’s PDI of the Year Competition will be judged by Clive Tanner FRPS MPAGB APAGB. This year we will be returning to the normal format of having the PDI judged as part of the judging of the Annual Exhibition, which Clive is also judging for us.
The competition is open to all classes and each member may enter up to two entries. Each entries must have already been judged in a PDI competition in this season (2020-2021). So all you have to do is select your two favourite entries and upload them.
Entries must be in by end of day 28th of May 2021.
You need to be logged in to the website to view them. Also, some of the books are quite large so you may hit performance issues on smaller/older laptops.
The page shows each book as a thumbnail with a set of controls around it. You can flip the pages of each book using the angled brackets (< >) to the left and right of the thumbnail, but the best way to view the book is to press the icon shown circled in red:
This will open the book in lay flat mode with 3D animation, full screen. To return back to the page with all the books, press the same icon again
Please note that some of the books are very big (> 200Mb) so it can take a while to load pages, please be patient.
Disappointingly, we cannot hold the Print Panels Competition this year, but we can hold a Triptych PDI Competition. This will be judged by Judge Jim Pascoe ARPS ABIPP on the 1st April 2021.
We would like you to upload 3 images at the normal size of 1600×1200 and one additional image which has all 3 images laid out as a single ‘panel’ image. The panel image may be a maximum of 1920×1200 all at sRGB jpeg.
The extra width (1900 instead of 1600) gives you a bit more width to lay out your panel/triptych.
Please upload your panel image as the first image and your three component images as images 2 to 4, so this is:
Panel/Triptych 1920×1200 with Panel name
1st Image 1600×1200 any suitable name
2nd Image 1600×1200 any suitable name
3rd Image 1600×1200 any suitable name
It is important to realise that the judge will be judging your panel, the individual images are there to support the panel and allow him to look in more detail at the single images.
On the competition night only the panel image will be displayed. The panel image also needs a title (it is not strictly necessary to title the component images if you don’t want to, a simple 1,2,3 will do).
You may lay out the triptych on any way you choose, 3 horizontally, 3 vertically or a as shown on the featured image of this post.
Images to be uploaded to PhotoComp in the normal way.
Here are another couple of examples, note you do not have to use the full 1920×1200 if your panel design does not suit that layout.
