Prints and Digital Standards
All prints and digital images must be the sole work of the entrant except for film processing (not counting Black & White and non-commercial Color prints).
Any photographs taken of someone else’s artistic efforts if said photos are just “as is” are not eligible for competition.
Print Images: Prints may be Black and White, Color or toned in monochromatic tint. Hand colored prints are not acceptable. Commercial prints (prints where the film was developed at a commercial lab and printed & mounted at a commercial lab) may be entered by photographers in their respective group.
Prints may be exhibited in horizontal, square or vertical format in any size mount from 5” x 7” (without mask) up to 16” x 20” (including mask). Prints must be properly mounted on a board, with no glass and no folded paper over the print.
Prints must be properly marked for competition. A title for identification purposes must be printed clearly on each entry.
The back of each print must bear the photographer’s name and a title. Label templates for this purpose are available for download on the SEQCC website. Labels must be affixed to the lower right corner of the mount, with the word “TOP” written on the top edge of the labelThe back of each print must be smooth and clean and free of tape; otherwise, the print will be disqualified.
After scoring is completed, digital copies of the print entries should be emailed to DigitalComp@seqcc.org. Resizing of images is not necessary for this purpose. The photographer’s name and the title of the image must be included.
