What do I need to do if I’m entering projected images?
As well as registering your details and paying the entry fee, you need to upload the images as part of the entry process and provide titles for the images in the boxes provided. Jpgs only, sized to 2400 pixels maximum on longest edge. If you are entering projected images only and no prints, once you have finished this process and paid online, you are all set.
I’m only entering prints in the competition. Do I still need to enter online?
Yes. For print entries, you need to register your details along with the titles for the images and pay the entry fee. You do not need to upload a copy of the file. You need to bring the prints on the morning of the competition to receive their competition ID. Your prints must be clearly labelled on the back with your name, image title, competition category, camera club and the unique entry ID you will receive when you complete online entry. No minimum print size, however all prints must be mounted in a 20″x16″ mount. Your entry ID will look something like this “bfbrabaqybr-DPO-0000002508”. Please ensure this number is on the back of your print and bring along a copy of your entry form printed from website.
I’m not comfortable using computers or I don’t have internet access, can I get a friend/colleague to enter for me?
Yes. On the online entry form, there is an option to facilitate this. Your friend/colleague must tick the box that says “Click here if you are entering photographs for another photographer” and fill out the details required.
I don’t have a card that Paypal accepts/don’t have access to a computer. How do I enter?
For those photographers without access to a credit/debit card, please contact the SACC committee via the contact page on this website.
