Guidelines For Electronic Image Submission
We look forward to showcasing your award-worthy projects as well as we can, as often as we can. Please help us in doing so by following these guidelines:
Hire a professional photographer or consult with a competent graphic designer. They will know what to do and/or do it for you, eliminating guesswork — not to mention saving the time it would take you to do it yourself.
This is your work — make it look as good as you can. If you are hesitant to pay a professional, remember that the photos can be used not only for this awards contest, but would be a great portfolio and/or website addition. They can also be on display in your office year-round to dazzle clients.
Low resolution images (less than 300dpi at their intended size) cannot be published in magazines or brochures. To achieve the highest quality images you can, be sure to set your camera to the highest resolution.
Each entrant should not send more than six (6) images with their entry. CDs that include more than six images will have the first six chosen as they appear on the disk based on the quality and resolution of the photo, not necessarily the features you’d prefer to showcase. CDs will not be returned.
