PDIs

Your 3 PDI entries need to be submitted 2 weeks before each competition.
For those who have already registered on the website you can upload your PDIs using the Image Uploader in the Members’ Area.  You can upload full size images (maximum 15 MB each) as they’ll be automatically resized for PDI competitions. 

Your competition entries should just be Image Title.jpg (no need to put your name – the Image Uploader does this automatically)

If you haven’t registered yet you can do this from the Join Us page – it’s quick and easy to do, and we’ll send you a confirmation email once your application has been approved.  You’ll then have access to all the topics in the Members’ area, including the Image Uploader.

The information below refers to PDI and Print entries pre-COVID, when we were able to meet up. It’s not relevant for Zoom competitions. Please disregard it until we’re able to meet up again

Some of you might prefer to put your PDI entries on a USB stick – you’ll need to resize them to 1600 pixels x 1200 pixels maximum (that’s 1600 wide for landscape orientation images and 1200 high for portrait orientation ones).  We ask for this size because that’s the SCPF standard for their competitions.

When submitting your entries on a USB stick (labelled with your name), this should contain one folder entitled RCC PDI COMP (1, 2, 3 or 4, as appropriate). This folder should only contain your competition entries which should be named Your Name_Image Title.jpg (e.g. Joe Bloggs_Great Shot.jpg)

Prints

Your 3 print titles should be submitted a week before the actual competition to allow scoresheets to be drawn up in good time. You can tell us your titles via the Image Uploader even if you’re not ready to send us your digital copies yet. Prints are to be handed in on the competition night itself – 7.45 p.m. at the latest.

Prints should be no smaller than 18 cm x 13 cm, and mounts no larger than 50 cm x 40 cm. No frames. We have labels to go on the back of your mounts (top right hand corner please) telling us your name, image title, competition number and judge’s name, so please make sure you use these. We also have mount board for sale at discounted prices, so ask at the club in advance of competition night.

We’d like you to give us full size digital copies of your print entries (in case we want to print them for an external competition). You can send these to us either by using the Image Uploader, or by bringing them in on a memory stick.

If you’ve already registered on the website you can upload the full size digital copies of your prints using the Image Uploader in the Members’ Area (follow the instructions in the PDI section above).  If you’re using a USB stick (labelled with your name), this should contain one folder entitled RCC PRINT COMP (1, 2, 3 or 4, as appropriate). This folder should only contain your competition entries which should be named Your Name_Image Title.jpg (e.g. Joe Bloggs_Great Shot.jpg)
