Image selection

Each club is allowed to submit 6 images from 6 different club members to each round of CAPA club competition. Members are encouraged to submit up to 2 images for each round. The competition committee will meet to select the images that will represent GRIPS.

Category definitions

Note that the CAPA definitions for each category (e.g. nature, fine art) are slightly different from the GRIPS definition earlier in this document. Members who are submitting images for consideration should refer to the CAPA competition rules and ensure that their images adhere to the CAPA requirements, in order to avoid entries getting disqualified.

Image Requirements

  • Files can have a maximum resolution of 1400 pixels wide and 1050 pixels high. Note: One of the dimensions must be exactly the maximum allowed size and neither dimension may exceed the maximum pixels for that dimension
  • Maximum filesize: 1.8 MB
  • Images must be saved as JPEG (.jpg) in sRGB colour space.”
