PDI COMPETITION RULES

NOTES: 

  1. The PDI Rules are undergoing a review to reflect the revised image size (1600H x1200W), but the key points are listed below.
  2. The new PDI email address was circulated to members by email in October 2018 on groups.io. It is not published here for security reasons, so please ask if you don’t know it.

PDI Merit (Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced)

  • a member can submit a maximum of three entries
  • entries should be in jpeg file format (.jpg or .jpeg) – please don’t send as .raw, .psd, .tiff or anything else.
  • file sizes: no bigger than 1600 pixels wide and 1200 high (not even a little bit bigger).
  • file names should be in the format: class_title_author. e.g. intermediate_Mediterranean Seascape_John Smith (only 2 underscores as separators!**)
  • colour space: should be sRGB
  • the same image can not be submitted for more than one competition
  • entries should be sent to our competition email address which has been circulated by the groups.io email
    or handed to the PDI Competition Secretary on a USB stick
  • entries can be attached to the email, or as links in the email to sharing sites such as Dropbox
  • if you send an email, you will get an automated response, this does not mean your entries are OK.
    If there are any problems with your entries, the PDI Secretary will email you later.

** Please don’t use additional underscores or commas, as the software we use to project the images does not like it.

PDI Set Subject (Open)

Set Subject Competitions are Open, that is we do not compete as Beginners/Intermediate/Advanced.

For your entries the file name should be subject_title_author, e.g. portrait_The Magician_John Smith

Image preparation/submission is the same as for PDI Merit Competitions except for titling (See above)

PDI Annual  Competition (Open)
