    so if i send in a 2000 x 2000 pixels pic, it is ok? note that this is not the usually 3:2, or 4:5 ratio.

    Of course it's ok.
    As long as the longer side is 2000 pixels.

    The server is a dedicated one with more than sufficient bandwidth to cater to an organization of a few thousand people. That is probably the reason you have experienced extraordinary upload speeds. If you are on the NTU domain, the transfer would be even faster.

    Please check your PM as I have asked for your registration name and entry title. I will check the database for your entry. I have a repeated submission and I'm wondering if that might be yours.

    Hello.

    The pictures would be viewed "as is" on high contrast, high resolution plasma or LCD screens by the judges. The fact that the picture would be different from what is on your screen is not denied.

    Printouts from computers differ from visual panels' displays too, be it in terms of colour, contrast or detail in shadows due to many reasons such as lower gamut. A calibrated screen with printer does not guarantee WYSIWYG 100% too.

    We recognize that what is being viewed during judging might differ even, from what is intended. However, it is a trade off on our part to make submission more convenient and encourage more entries from amateur photographers who could do away with having to contemplate spending money on printing. Hence, unless your screen is way off in terms of colour biasness, we do not forsee much of a probem.

    In this case, I believe the primary concern is whether the device used to output the image for judging is properly calibrated and what whether the viewing software supports color management as well. If those 2 requirements are fulfilled, then at least there is a known standard to work on.

    Print submission although troublesome, ensured that applicants are presenting what they intended to the judges as control of the output is in their hands. For monitor based judging, the setup has to be taken into consideration to have any predictable output.

    Thank you for your pointers.
    Nikon View4 with updates would be used as the viewing software to ensure colour management recognition.

    2000 pixels by 1325 pixels is the requirement.

    presuming NTU will be printing these images, max output from photo lab is going to be 4R.
    (or 6.66" X 4.42")

    This mean anyone with a 3MP camera will be doing fine.

    However, since there is not limit on max size.
    I do not know that size of your LCD/Plasma, but a similar image taken at 3MP and 8MP is definitely going to have quality different.
    this, imho, will cause unfair judging criteria.

    suggestion is that you can take in
    1800px X 1200px as min (4R, 2.16MP image, laser print 12" X 8")
    and
    3000px X 2400px as a max (8R, 7.2MP image, laser print 20" X 16")

    just a friendly suggestion, good luck with ya contest

    frankly. I find it weird that guys are commenting about the regulations and giving suggestions openly to the organiser when the event has already been launched.
    give a little respect and send it via PM. isn't that nicer?

    prolly, it's just me.
