    IMPORTANT : Photo of the Week starting 30th December 2012

    The photo of the week opening for entries tonight (Sunday 30th December 2012) is going to be a bit different to usual

    The theme this week is : PANORAMIC :

    Members can enter any photo they wish as long as it is in Panoramic format.

    GUIDELINES/RULES
    The general consensus is that for a photo to be panoramic it must be at least a ratio of 1:2. Therefore it must be at least twice as long as it is high, or twice as high as it is long. We will use this as the basis for acceptance of all entries. So to simplify it. If your entry is 600 pixels high, it must be a minimum of 1200 pixels long (or 1200 high x 600 long).
    Any entry that does not meet or exceed the 1:2 ratio may be disqualified.

    Now here is the important information for this competition. Generally our competitions allow entries to be a maximum of 1024 pixels on the longest side and 250KB in size. This competition will allow your entry to be a maximum of 1600 pixels on the longest side and 350KB.

    I have noticed that there are some entries still at 1024 pixels on the longest side. YOU CAN UPLOAD UP TO 1600 PIXELS for this competition.

    Also a reminder that the entry must be at least 1:2 ratio. We have already had disqualifications that do not meet this.

    eg.

    * if your entry is 1500 pixels wide, it must be 750 pixels or less high.
    * if your entry is 1600 pixels wide, it must be 800 pixels or less high.

    Yes. The entry must be at least 1:2.

    So an entry that is 1600 pixels wide and 700 pixels high would qualify, but an entry that is 1600 wide and 1000 high, would not. We have already disqualified entries that have not complied to the 1:2 or greater ratio
