We got some submissions for a new web banner. I went ahead and picked one to bring us into summer. You can see all the submissions here: http://easternmainecameraclub.org/photo-galleries.aspx (members only)
I think it's time to switch out our header image on the web site with something more "summery". I thought we could use our contest entry form to allow everyone to enter images for consideration. So I've set up a competition and posted some directions below. I've set the date for 7/1/2011, so if you want to submit some photos you'll need to get them in by 6/30. (our competition entry form closes the day before the contest date)
Once we've got some photos I'll post them all in a member only gallery so everyone can see what was submitted.
If you have any other ideas on how to do this, or any other suggestions for the web site please let me know. You can comment on this post or use the contact us form to send an email to Joel and I. OK, enough jabber, here's the detail:
Photos should be 998 pixels wide, and 175 pixels tall. The words Eastern Maine Camera Club will be horizontally centered on the image and right justified. Images should account for that by having clean space on the left half of the image. Look at Mary's fence image at the top of the page for an example.
To enter a photo in the contest follow these steps:
Log in to the website (contest is open to members only).
Navigate to the Competition Entry Form (click here to go there now).
In the Competition Date dropdown list select "7/1/2011 6:30 PM" (circled in the image below).
In the Format dropdown list select "Digital Projection" (circled in the image below).
Use the browse button to locate your image on your computer (circled in the image below).
Click Submit to complete the process. Repeat to enter a second photo. Two is the maximum number of entries per member.
