Photographs must be in digital format. Only entries sent via email will be eligible. No print or film submissions will be accepted for entry into this Contest. The photograph need not be taken with a digital camera; scans or photographic prints are acceptable. All digital files must be 5 megabytes or smaller, must be in JPEG or JPG format, 300 dpi resolution or higher, and must be at least 1,600 pixels wide (if a horizontal image) or 1,600 pixels tall (if a vertical image).
Photographs must have been taken within the three days of the CPI Horse Show, January 18, 2013 – January 20, 2013.
Cropping, minor burning (to darken highlights), dodging (to brighten shadows) and/or color correction is acceptable. The goal in using digital darkroom techniques should be to adjust the dynamic tonal range of an image so that it more closely resembles what you saw.
Stitched panoramas are acceptable only if the combined parts are all made around the same time. If your entry is a stitched image, please indicate this in the caption. (A stitched panorama is created from multiple images; each taken at a different angle from the same position, then combined using digital techniques. It results in a wider view than can be achieved with most wide-angle lenses.)
The photograph, in its entirety, must be a single work of original material taken by the Contest entrant. By entering the Contest, entrant represents, acknowledges, and warrants that the submitted photograph is an original work created solely by the entrant, and that no other party has any right, title, claim, or interest in the photograph.
The entries in each Category will judged separately, in accordance with the Judging Criteria, as defined below.
The panel of judges will include professionals in media, design and photography. They will be looking for photographs that can tell the story of the CPI Horse Show. They want to see aspects of the event through your eyes.
Contest consists of two (2) rounds of evaluation. In Round One, each judge in the panel of will select ten (10) entries in each Category from among all eligible entries based on the following criteria:
- Timeliness — the images have meaning in the context of a published chronological record of CPI events.
- Objectivity — the situation implied by the images is a fair and accurate representation of the CPI events they depict.
- Narrative — the images are suitable to combine with other news elements, to inform and give insight to the viewer or reader about the CPI experience.
The entries selected in Round One will proceed to Round Two. In Round Two, the Judges will collectively select a Winner in each Category based on the judging criteria. In the event of a tie, the tied entries will be re-submitted to the Judges for a re-judging between the tied entries alone. Decisions of the judges are final and binding.
Winners' names will be available online at www.collegeprepinvitational.com
