Members are invited to submit up to 10 JPEG images (Colour space: sRGB) to email@example.com using We Transfer by midnight Sunday 15 October 2023. Your entry must be accompanied by a completed entry form including your name and the image titles. There is a £5 fee for entry (covering all your images), which will help the Club to defray costs.
Images may be monochrome or colour and in any genre as long as the selection panel consider them to be suitable for display in a family friendly, public space. You must not include images that have been previously submitted for any BCC Exhibition.
It is important that your submission complies with the designated aspect ratios, pixel dimensions, file size and image naming set out in the instructions. Please note that due to time constraints, late or incorrectly sized images may not be considered. What follows here is a brief synopsis of the guidance. If you have any queries regarding your images, please contact the Exhibition Team.
Selected images will be printed at the following sizes and aspect ratios (see below). Pixel dimensions are those best suited for printing based on the print sizes that will be used in the Exhibition. Heavily cropped images are unlikely to be of sufficient quality for printing.
18×12 inches: 3:2 ratio (at least 4320 by 2880 pixels, ideal 5400 by 3600 pixels).
16×12 inches: 4:3 ratio (at least 3840 by 2880 pixels, ideal 4800 by 3600 pixels).
12×12 inches: 1:1 ratio (at least 2800 by 2800 pixels, ideal 3600 by 3600 pixels).
Typical file sizes will be in the range of 3-20 Mb. Please do not send larger files as handling becomes problematic. NB Some images that are largely blocks of a single colour with little detail may be much smaller.
Metadata and File Names:
Please provide a file name and also a title. The file name and title are not the same.
The title is the same format as used for submissions for the website galleries ie the image name, your name. The title is used for creation of the slideshow at the YTR.
Image title should use upper case for the first letter of the first word, then lower case for subsequent words except when upper case is essential (eg as in York). Submissions for the Exhibition must use a comma between the title and your name as this format is required for adding the title and author to images in the slideshow. Do not use any other punctuation mark (eg as in Spash! Your Name).
The filename contains information about the image sizing and orientation in addition to the title and author. This filename is required to organise images for printing.
The file name should include aspect ratio (32/43/SQ), orientation (L/P), image title, your name. So, for example, an image that has an aspect ratio of 3:2, in portrait orientation, should be named using the following convention: 32P, A big tree, Your Name: Square images should be named: SQ, A big tree, Your Name. Submissions for the Exhibition must use a comma between the aspect ratio/orientation and the title (formatted as above) as this syntax is required for sorting the images. Do not use any other punctuation mark (eg as in Spash! Your Name).
