Is there a closing date?

Is there a maximum file size?

If you send email to [email protected] is there a subject title specific to the photo comp?

If by email what additional info is required ie member ID or contact details?

Don't worry too much about a closing date - just submit when you're ready. We'll obviously have to have a cut-off date, and at the moment I guess 1st May would be reasonable.

Files should be jpegs Subject line - 'PCA photo comp' Name and email address required.

I should add that a condition of entry is that we have the right to publish the images in print and on-line at our discretion.

Many thanks

Just tagged PC Advisor into a few photos from my Facebook page, they're all my own work, and I own copyright, by I understand that they can be published in PCA if chosen

That is correct, it's normal for a Company/Magazine to display the winning image in their own Mag or on their own forum.

It's the bit at the end that I don't like (At our discretion)

However as there is no minimum image size or resolution stated it's probably not a problem, as a Jpeg of say 1500 pixels @ 72 PPI is not a lot of use to anyone.

"It's the bit at the end that I don't like (At our discretion)"

Why don't you like that? As you've acknowledged, it's perfectly normal where submissions to publishers are concerned. It simply means that we reserve the right to publish competition entries or not to publish them. There's nothing sinister about it. If you don't want to see your image in the magazine or on the website, don't enter the competition.

I've given it a try, but I don't hold out much hope.

Will be interesting to see everybody's efforts though.

My Facebook pictures are only 1280 x 850 at the most, and have all been subjected to Facebook's own compression, so not a lot of use to anyone. Most have also got my name on them somewhere.

To be totally honest though, I'm really not that precious about my photos, there's a few of the people who've liked my page who have taken some of the photos as their timeline images or they've shared them.

If I have any photos I'm really proud of I'll slap a watermark somewhere prominent

If I remember rightly we got some really good photo's in the last competition. Some really nice bird pictures etc... I am looking forward to seeing them. But wasn't there also a bit of a palaver over the rules or something? I hope that has all been sorted out?

By what criteria are pictures being judged? Technical (focus/lighting/colour balance etc) or perhaps aesthetic value? Or something else?

And should images be original ones, or can they be 'touched up'?
