    Hi all,
    I am alittle confused here, can someone shed some light please?
    I am thinking of going into this contest just for kicks and giggles and don't get this part-
    PRINTS Traditional or digital, black and white or colour. Print size: 5 x 7” min. to 8 1⁄2 [COLOR=#ffffff][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkred]x 11” max. If submitting digital[/COLOR][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=3][COLOR=black][COLOR=darkred]prints, high-resolution files (2700 x 3600 pixels) on CD are also required, along with the prints.[/COLOR] -I would guess Traditional is paper and Digital is CD right?[/COLOR][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=3][COLOR=#000000]Thanks a bunch-:)[/COLOR][/SIZE][/COLOR]

    It sounds like you have to submit prints, and a CD with the full-res files if it was shot with a digital camera (not sure why they need that...).

    I don't get it either, seems really weird.
    I just wanted to see if everyone else was reading it like I was.

    It sounds like they judge the images from the prints (ergo allowing both digital and traditional entries to stand a fair chance against each other) but when it comes to winners they want to be able to use the image for promotion purposes and other reasons (as outlined in their TC which after a quick look though seem fair). With the CD they can just grab the images from there rather than having to scan them into a computer from the print - degrading the image quality a bit.

    Wrong contest-:)
    I don't get the whole thing because if you send photos on paper whether it be traditional or Digital, either way you would be scanning the winning photos.
    No biggie really, just thought I was losing my mind when reading it.
