Submission Guidelines for the Photowalk Contest
After your Photowalk at Brookhaven Lab, you’ll have the chance to
submit some of your best images to our photo contest. A panel of
Brookhaven Lab judges will determine a shortlist of 10 winners, which
will then be featured on our website.
Additionally, Brookhaven will forward the top five photos, as judged
by that same panel, to the global photo competition held by the particle
physics website Interactions.org.
Rules for submitting photos to the competition
- To participate in the photo contest, you must fill
out and sign a photo release form at the Brookhaven Lab Photowalk on Sept. 22, 2012.
- You may submit up to five photographs, and all
images must have been taken during the Photowalk.
- All images must be submitted by noon EST on Sunday,
Oct. 14, 2012.
- All images must be submitted in digital format,
either online (details for online upload option
coming soon) or by sending a CD or DVD. No hard copy
prints will be accepted for judging.
- Files can be color or grayscale. Final files can be
either unaltered or altered in photo editing programs as
long as all original image material was gathered with a
camera the day of the Photowalk event. Photographers
should retain all original images in case the judges
require proof of source material.
- File format must be JPEG, with file size not to
exceed 20 MB for each image. File size/resolution must
be large enough that Brookhaven Lab can produce
8x10-inch prints for an exhibit of the winning photos.
We require at least 2500 pixels in the long dimension.
- Files must be named in the following way: last name
of photographer, followed by an underscore, followed by
the first name, followed by an underscore, followed by a
2-digit sequence number starting with 01. Examples for
photographer John Smith: smith_john_01, smith_john_02,
- Alternatively, CDs and DVDs can be dropped off or
sent to the Brookhaven Lab Media and Communications
Office. The shipping/mailing address is:
Media and Communications Office
Brookhaven National Laboratory
Upton, NY 11973
Winners entered into global contest
Winners of the local Brookhaven Lab photo contest will be notified in
October. The top five photos from both Brookhaven and Fermi National
Accelerator Laboratory in Illinois will be sent to the
Interactions.org contest in December, and those finalists will be
notified in January 2013. Winners of the global contest will be
announced at a later date in early 2013.
