    Photo Contest Pro now open for May 24 Competition

    May 24 Competition deadline is Friday, May 21, at 11:59 PM

    Images can be 1400 pixels wide and 1050 pixels high. This change is in keeping with the New England Camera Club Council which has changed its image sizes for interclub competitions.

    Here are some examples of images which can be submitted:

    a landscape which is 1400 x 1050

    a vertical which is 800 x 1050

    a square image which is 1050 x 1050

    Note that the vertical dimension cannot be more than 1050.

    If you accidentally forget to resize your images, Photo Contest Pro may still accept them if they are not too far off.

    However, everyone should strive to resize their images to conform to the guidelines.

     

    The Assigned Subject for May is "Clouds"
