Camera Phone Competition – Thursday 11th January 2018

Members can enter up to 4 images taken since the Melbourne Photographic Society AGM , April 2017 with a camera phone or similar device such as a tablet.  They can be processed using editing tools of your choice. There will be no print section on the evening, just PDI’s.  The pdi’s will need to be the usual max size of 1400×1050. As far as ratios go Simon has resized to 1400×1050 from a iPhone and the images look fine. A common ratio for phones images is a square format that’s liked by instagram. Remember square images would still need to be set against a 1400 x 1050 background. 

A panoramic images would just need to be sized for a max width of 1400.

To submit your entries for the competition, you need to follow these simple guidelines.
