Image Specifications

  • All images must be in JPEG format, RGB or Grayscale mode, 72ppi, without watermarks, text, logos or other identifying marks. Color space should be sRGB.

  • If meta data is present in the image, it may be used to pre-fill form fields for convenience. However, all meta data will be removed by the submission program before storage to insure anonymous judging.

  • The longer side of your image must be 1024 pixels. The shorter side may be any size up to and including 1024 pixels.

  • Image file size may not be greater than 1000KB (1,024,000) bytes), so adjust your "quality" setting accordingly when producing images for submission.

  • Each image must be the work of the person submitting the image and represent the Salish Sea ecosystem.

No images will be accepted after midnight on the closing date. The cutoff procedure is automated, so be sure your images are submitted and finalized before the deadline. Avoid a last minute rush and get your images submitted well before the deadline. Any submissions still in progress at the cutoff will be discarded. No exceptions.
