Projected Image (PDI) Entries

Image Size & Format

Each entry should be submitted as a ‘JPEG’ (jpg) file.

The image size you should submit will depend on the type of competition being entered:

  • Internal Club Competitions (Bimonthly, Annual etc.)

Images should be resized to be no greater than 1920 pixels horizontally and 1080 pixels vertically. They may be of other sizes (shapes) and may have a border of your choice within these limits. Images will be projected with a black surround if they are smaller than the maximum pixel dimensions.

  • External Competitions (Interclub, YPU etc.)

Images should be resized to be no greater than 1400 pixels horizontally and 1050 pixels vertically.

The projector will be calibrated to the sRGB colour space so for best quality your images should be converted to the sRGB colour space.

File Naming

The file name of each entry should have an image number (1, 2, 3, etc), the title of the image followed by the full initials of the author (e.g. “1 Sunset at Oban JMN”).

In the annual competition where there are two categories: Applied and General, it is the entrant’s responsibility to indicate the category by prefixing the file name with an ‘A’ or ‘G’. For example “G1 Sunset at Oban JMN”

Image Submission & Handling

Entries may be submitted on a CD/DVD, USB memory stick or by e-mail attachment to Make sure discs and USB sticks are clearly labelled with the author’s name. Please include the full titles of the images and their category (for entries into the annual competition).

All images will be copied to the hard drive of the Club’s computer for projection and a copy will be held by the competition secretary. The disc or memory stick will be returned to the author.

Images will be retained on the Club’s computer and by the competition secretary for exhibitions and external competitions unless the author has requested them to be deleted.
