How to Submit an Image - Meeting Slides 3-1-2019 Version 3-6-2019  

Note: Images may be sized up to 1200 pixels on the longest side


If you are a paid member and would like to compete for the 1st time  please send an email to LeeAnn McLaneGoetz at 7pondsphotoexpo@gmail.com to request competition rights to be turned on.  LeeAnn will get you active in the system and work with you to answer any questions.


Notes on Submission of DPD images and Print digital entry images: 

* The Maximum image size for these images is 1200 pixels on the longest side. Please resize to that dimension. Images that exceed this size are stored at full size on the  Software Pursuits  Servers.   When entered into a competition the entry is resized to proper size, but, the original is still there. The problem here is that we pay for storage space that isn't necessary. Another problem is that you then allow a program of which you have no knowledge or control over do your resizing.

*All images entered into competitions at the GDCCC require a title that means something in English. Do not use DCS_xxxx or similar identifiers  in the title. When you enter these images there is room in information boxes to enter such information. (use Author's Image Id: This is a field for the author's use only to help identify the image within the author's collection.) Computer programs frequently truncate longer titles.  We are happy to show images that do not meet this requirement at 7 Ponds, but, they will be disqualified if entered into GDCCC competitions. 

* The  identification  of the person submitting the image cannot appear in the title. Image is disqualified at GDCCC.

*The identification of the maker cannot appear in the image itself. The image will be  disqualified at GDCCC.

Please check the requirements for entering different categories so as to avoid problems with that aspect of the competition. At 7 Ponds we may not be as fussy with all of this. Entering images to GDCCC competitions is a different story. They follow most guidelines from The Photographic Society of America (PSA) and try to have all entrances playing on a level field.
