Important Notice!!

We’re trying something different this month: Instead of the usual competition, we’ll have a critique night to provide positive feedback on submitted images. [More here?] We’re asking members to submit up to two images on any topic. To make things easier for the Projectionist, please submit digital images by Sunday evening, May 6. For this meeting, all submissions will be under the Special Topic Critique. Print submissions should follow the usual guidelines. Use this variation on our usual naming convention for digital submissions:

FLA-SSSSX-YZ-Title.jpg
Note: there are dashes or minus signs between sections of the file name.
FLA = 3 character club code. FLA stands for Flatirons Photo Club.
SSSS = first 4 characters of the submitter’s surname. If a surname has less than 4 characters, that is fine.
X = first character of the submitter’s first name
Y = Category: A=Realism, B=Special Effects C=Special Topic
Z = Number of the entry in a category. A1 would be the first entry, A2 would be the second entry, A3 would be the third, etc.

Title = Image title with 36 characters maximum. Note: some email systems remove spaces from filenames when they receive files. If your email system does this, use underscores (“_”) instead of spaces. The program will replace them with spaces.

Example: John Smith, Flatirons Photo Club, Critique, Great Blue Heron would have a filename of:
fla-smitj-C1-Great Blue Heron.jpg
