Do’s and Don’ts
- Decide your thematic area(s) of focus. This will ensure that your entry avoids being filtered out for not adhering to the themes.
- Use a camera that can output high-resolution photo with a minimum of 3000 pixels on the longest side with 300 DPI/PPI setting. Exempted from this are photos taken using mobile phones in the highest resolution (the acceptance of the entry is based on the quality and is subject to our decision).
- Ensure that you have the approval/consent of the people in the picture, especially if the focus is on a single person. You are encouraged to use this form:
- You can make simple edits to the photo but these need to be specified in the form.
- Don’t submit an entry of a photo collage (multiple photos on one frame)
- Don’t put watermarks, signature or any overlays on your picture
- Don’t send pictures that are not related to any of the thematic areas.
How to Apply
- All entries should be submitted with a title, a brief paragraph (not more than 75 words) explaining the context of the photo, along with where and when it was taken.
- All photos submitted should be in jpeg format. It will be an advantage to submit Raw/Tiff files. The longer side should be at least 3,000 pixels. The entrants are allowed to digitally manipulate entries slightly and state the nature of manipulation. Please do not include any marks, logos, watermarks, or borders in your photos.
- Your photos should be related to the themes mentioned above.
How to submit
After taking your photo/s:
1. Add a title and write a short description for every photo.
2. Rename the photo/s in this format: Lastname-Firstname_title.jpeg (example: Oyelowo-Eyitayo_Female-aircraft-engineers.jpeg/.tiff)
3. Make sure you agree with the Terms and Conditions. (Also found in the submission form)
4. Download and complete the submission form and rename the form in this format: Lastname-Firstname_SAPC20_SF.docx (Note that the insert picture/thumbnail function may not work for MSWord97-2003 versions)
