One of the contest rules have been changed for the 2017-18 N4C year. One of the rule changes have to do with image sizes: submitted images must be a maximum of 1920 pixels on the long side and the file size must be no larger than 500 KB. Though the official rules haven’t been published yet, they will go into effect immediately. The N4C year begins in September with contests every month except December and continues until May. If you haven’t already, please consider entering one or more of the six monthly contests. Our club members have done well in the past and winners are posted in the N4C galleries. The deadline for entry is the tenth of each month and the complete rules are here. I enjoy the challenge of competition and it gives me another incentive to work harder to make good images.
