TITLES OF YOUR ENTRIES

PRINTS & PDI ENTRIES

It is highly recommended that you have a title for your entries (Prints and PDI).
If you do not wish the title to be read out - please observe the following convention:

PRINTS - write the words "NO TITLE" on the back of the Prints mount in the upper left hand corner.

PDI - USING EMAIL (using an emailed entry form) - put the words "NO TITLE" for the appropriate entry on the entry form. 
(but keep the title in the Structured File Name of the image file) (see below)

PDI - using the WEB ENTRY SYSTEM - please DO NOT put the words "NO TITLE" in the 'Title' part of the SFN (Structured File Name) of the image file - give the file a title - but email the assistant Competition Secretary with Title instructions if you do not want the title read out. (see below)

    If it has changed – notify the webmaster or the Competition Secretary IMMEDIATELY.

  • Please make sure you enter THE CORRECT COMPETITION (chosen from a list)
  • Do not enter a competition with an incorrect or out of date email address

  • Please make sure you know WHERE your images are stored on your Computer.

Structured File Name (SFN) Convention – Re-name your Image Files

VERY IMPORTANT: Parkstone Camera Club uses a Structured File Name (SFN) convention as an aid to identify entries.

The following SFN format: uses THREE CHARACTERS as DELIMITERS:

The UNDERSCORE “_, THE HASH SIGN#” & THE EQUALS SIGN “=” (highlighted in red below)

  • You are allowed three entries designated: “A_” or “B_” or “C_ 
    (a single letter followed by an UNDERSCORE)
    (please note – in large competitions the “C_” entry may be dropped due to time issues.)
  • Then enter your name: with a single space between the first and last names.
    DOUBLE BARREL SURNAMES MUST BE CONNECTED WITH A HYPHEN like “Bloggs-Smith
  • The TITLE of your image is started with the HASH SIGN
  • Type your title and then enter the equals sign '=' with “C” for colour or “M” for Mono
  • NOTE:The last 3 or 4 letters (.jpg or .jpeg) AFTER THE FINAL FULL STOP depict the File Type. 
    this 'suffix' is normally entered automatically by your computer.
    The Suffix IS NOT PART OF - OR NEEDED IN THE TITLE
  • Common mistake:
    e.g.  the filename "A_Joe Bloggs-Smith#my first image title=C.jpg.jpg is NOT CORRECT

Some examples of WELL FORMED Structured File Names:(without the file format suffix)

A_Joe Bloggs-Smith#my first image title=C

B_Joe Bloggs-Smith#my second image title=M

C_Joe Bloggs-Smith#my Third image title=C

if you have : 

  1. re-named your images correctly using the Structured File Name Convention
  2. Know where to find the images on your computer
  3. Know the Image Titles you wish to use
  4. and are ready to submit your entries:
