Sophia Johnsen Workshop and Photographic Competition

The workshop concludes with our regularly scheduled print competition. But because it is part of a PPA Merit program there will be a few changes:

1) We’re happy to announce that this will be the first time that we will include digital image judging. So bring your prints or digital files. (See digital requirements at the end of this post.)

2) Non-PPANI members will be allowed to submit the images that they worked on in class into the competition. They will be judged for score only.

3) PPANI members may submit a total of 8 images (prints and digital combined) Of these 8 submissions, the ones that were worked on in class will be for score only. The remaining images may be considered for the Member Only Awards.

Digital requirements

1) Files must be sized so the longest dimension is 4000 pixels. Each file must contain an embedded color profile of either sRGB or Adobe RGB1998 and be saved at a JPEG quality setting of 10. In most case, total file size should not exceed 3.5 MB. Larger files will be accepted when necessary so long as they are JPEG/10.

2) Files are to be named, Image-Title (use _for spaces, e.g. See_Spot_Run.jpg)
