Focus Camera Club members can send their digital entries for monthly competitions using the form below. Required fields are marked with a RED asterisk. You do not need to enter anything in the “Comments” field unless you expect to miss the competition meeting. In that case, the comments entered will be read if you win an award.
Guests who are planning on attending a competition meeting may submit one image for Critique Only. You’ll be able to get a feel for how our competitions and judging goes.
The Deadline for Submissions is Midnight on the SATURDAY before the Wednesday competition!
** Max size is 2560 x 1440 pixels as of July 1, 2023. ** Submitted images must not exceed 2560 pixels wide and no taller than 1440 pixels, or they will be rejected. Submitted files must be JPGs (.jpg or .jpeg extensions allowed), saved in sRGB color space, and no larger than 2560 KB (2.5 MB)
Each entry’s file name should start with your initials, followed by an underscore, and then the Image Title. For example, fg_My-Awesome-Photo.jpg
Proper Metadata needs to be in the JPG file as well (In Photoshop – Document Title and Author, In Lightroom – Title and Creator), and instructions are in the ZIP file linked below.
We have put together an Action and Export Preset for Digital Submissions for PS / PSE / and Lightroom. Download the ZIP file for Focus LRExport PSAction (Right click and Save, PDF instructions included in the ZIP file). These tools will help you consistently prepare competition images with the proper filesize, image dimensions, color space, filename, etc. (and they have been updated to the new 2560×1440 size we use as of July 2023)
Remember: For our current Competition meetings via Zoom you can only submit 2 images for Competition. Thanks for your understanding.
