PDI Preparation for Competitions

To enter an image you will need to:-

  • Resize to max width of 1600 pixels x max height of 1200 pixels
  • Consider adding a very narrow grey border (stroke)
  • Use the Uploader to enter your image.

Print Preparation for Competitions

  • It is expected that all Intermediate and Advanced members will mount their prints (usually window mounted)
  • Prints should be mounted on a board no bigger than 500 x 400
  • It is recommended that you use White, off-white or black mount board.
  • As well as mounting your print you must submit an electronic copy of your print by midnight on the Sunday prior to the competition.
  • Labels must be attached to the back of your mount, top, left-hand side. They can be obtained from the competition secretary on club evenings. You can print your own labels on standard A4 paper and glue them to the mount.
