Entering photographs


The maximum is six photographs. Three color and three black & white. Following our normal print competition guidelines (maximum size 16″ x 20″, matted or mounted, no frames …). Use plenty of strong glue/tape etc. to secure all layers, especially if double matted and/or using mounting board or foam core. Photographs will be hanging for four weeks and need to stay together!


At the bottom of each print will be a visible label that includes the title and photographer name. The name will be folded under when judging. Make sure there is no more than 1/2″ inch space between the top “title line” and the bottom “name line”. The labels should be no larger than 3″x 5″. Here are some templates you can use to print your labels. Printing template 8.5×11 – for the visible labels at the Annual Exhibit and Printing template 3×5 index card – for the visible labels at the Annual Exhibit. Also, there will be a supply of labels available at drop off.

Providing digital versions for advertising posters and web

We need digital versions of some of your photographs for our advertising posters that will be displayed around town. And we will use some of the digital versions on the web page about the exhibit. Email them to Win Brickmeier at  web-pcb@comcast.net
