Submitting Images to WCC’s EDI Competitions

by on Jul.08, 2009, under Competitions

Here is a quick reminder that images submitted to the EDI competitions including the EDI versions of prints need to be resized to 1024 pixels wide x 768 pixels high.

The two dimensions are NOT interchangeable and any image that is above 768 pixels high after it has been resized is too big. The best solution is when resizing the images set the height to 768 first and then check the width dimension. If the width is now below 1024 pixels then you are okay but if the width is still over 1024 pixels then you then need to resize the width to 1024 pixels. As long as you have the ‘constrain proportions’ or ‘maintain aspect ratio’ enabled, then there will be no problem as the image will adjust itself accordingly and the height will be below 768 pixels.

I am creating a document to show you how to do this in Photoshop, Elements 7 and Light-room and this will be available on the Tech Help BLOG ASAP. There will also be a further session at the club meeting to help alleviate any problems that you may be having.

Warragul National & Other National Competitions

by on Jul.08, 2009, under Competitions, Outings

A quick message from the President regarding the Warragul National and other national competitions.

Outing this Sunday.

This Sunday (the 12th) I propose we go to Warragul and have a look at the Warragul National.

A National is a photographic competition open to all Australians and here in Victoria we have three – Ballarat, Warragul and Pakenham. There is also an international comp held every two years in Geelong known as Vigex.

A National is broken up into sections. For example the Pakenham National (which is still open if you want to enter) has the following sections: Open, People/Portraiture, Creative/Experimental, Monochrome, Photojournalism/Social Documentary, Rural Aust., Architecture and Landscape/Seascape.

A National will typically receive in excess of a thousand entries and these entries are all judged in their sections and those with high enough scores (acceptances) are displayed. It is a fantastic opportunity to see some great photography and while we’re in the area we could take some shots ourselves.

We can meet at the exhibition which is at St. Pauls Anglican School, 150 Bowen St, Warragul at 1pm and then go from there to somewhere like Noojee to do some photography of our own.

And keep the 6th of September free as well because that is the date of the Pakenham National.
