APS Internal Competition Rules and Guidance:

The complete Amersham Photographic Society internal competition rules can be downloaded from the Download page.
The following items on this page are just intended to remind participants of how to enter each competition.
Entrants without email facilities should contact the Print or PDI Secretaries to make their entry arrangements.

Print Competition Entries:

By midnight on the Friday preceding each Monday competition, email the following details to the Print Secretary at printsec@amershamphotosoc.com :

  • Print Title
  • Author’s Name
  • Print Corner Number.

All prints must have a unique identifying corner, available from the Print Secretary at the start of each season. Corners from previous years may not be used.

Please bear in mind the requirements for prints submitted to the Annual Exhibition at the end of the season. Currently, this is exactly 40x50cm and using off-white mountboard.  The following documents describe a number of methods for mounting your prints that you may find useful.

 

PDI Competition Entries:

Entries must be submitted no later than the Friday before the competition, preferably by e-mail attachment but also on CD, DVD or flash memory stick delivered to the competition secretary. E-mailed images should be sent to: pdientry@amershamphotosoc.com where software will check conformance with the entry rules.  Amonst them:

  • Images for projection must be in JPEG format (maximum quality), with maximum dimensions 1600 pixels wide x 1200 pixels high.  Note that if a square format is used, the maximum size will therefore be 1200 x 1200 pixels.
  • For predictable colours from our projector it is necessary for the image to be in the sRGB colour space.
  • Filenames must be in the following format: IMAGE TITLE by Your Name.jpg.
    (The use of the image name in upper case and the ‘by’ in lower case letters is essential because the competition
    software uses this to automatically recognise the title and author’s name).
  • Please avoid special characters in filenames as this confuses the software. In particular, ! ? * ‘ can cause problems.   If you want a name to be displayed using these characters, please include the desired name in the mail to the competition secretaries.
  • For comprehensive help with preparing your PDIs, see the following documents (All updated September 2018):
