Submitting for NECCC
Spring Competition: All entries must be received by no later than 7:00pm Monday, March 22, 2021.
- All photographs must be JPEG images with the .jpg extention.
- It is strongly suggested you use the sRGB color space.
- “Photographs will be projected using a projector having 1400 pixels in the horizontal direction and 1050 pixels in the
vertical direction. Photographs must fit within those dimensions.” <- That is a direct quote from the NECCC website. So is this -> “If you have a vertical photograph, the height will be 1050 pixels, but the width will be significantly less than 1400 pixels.” NECCC will not turn the projector sideways. Images must be no more than 1400 pixels (width) by 1050 pixels (height).
- It is recommended file size not exceed 800kb. Keeping file sizes small makes e-mailing and handling easier.
- This is basically “General”.
- Photos may be realistic renditions or creative interpretations of the subject.
- Composites are permitted as long as all elements are the photographer’s own work.
- Nature photography is restricted to the use of the photographic process to depict all branches of natural history, except anthropology and archaeology, in such a fashion that a well-informed person will be able to identify the subject material and certify its honest presentation. The story telling value of a photograph must be weighed more than the pictorial quality while maintaining high technical quality. Human elements shall not be present, except where those human elements are integral parts of the nature story such as nature subjects, like barn owls or storks, adapted to an environment modified by humans, or where those human elements are in situations depicting natural forces, like hurricanes or tidal waves. Scientific bands, scientific tags or radio collars on wild animals are permissible. Photographs of human created hybrid plants, cultivated plants, feral animals, domestic animals, or mounted specimens are ineligible, as is any form of manipulation that alters the truth of the photographic statement.
- Rendition must appear natural, though basic processing is allowed. You cannot add/remove/replace pictorial elements by any means other than cropping, though removal of dust or scratches is fine. By this reasoning composites are not permitted.
- Remember that “nature” does not have to mean “wildlife”. Mountains, oceans, forests, and deserts are all nature too. Don’t restrict yourself to only animals.
