The above chart is intended to be a summary of the competitions and exhibitions we will be taking part in, in the coming year. For internal competitions the ‘Last entry by’ is the latest date that your entries must be with the competition secretary (John Cross).
- For projected images this date is the Sunday before the Monday of the competition. (http://wdps.org/competition-upload/)
- For Printed images this is the Monday preceding the date of the competition.
- If you need your images printed and mounted then this needs to be done in plenty of time to meet the ‘Last entry by’ date. Ian (firstname.lastname@example.org) Ian Waterman can print and mount these for you but can’t do them all at the last minute! Late submissions may not be admitted!
- For external competitions (marked with a ‘*’) the date is earlier as a selection committee will need to meet beforehand to decide which images will be entered
- Images for internal, projected competitions should be no larger than 1920 pixels on the long side and named as follows: NN_Jane Doe_ A print title.jpg, Where NN is a number (01, 02, 03 ETC.) and ‘_’ is an underscore.
