Mandatory size limits on photos

The photos entered by the Burnaby Photographic Society to various competitions are sent to host organizations at different locations in Canada. Every competition has its own independent rules about acceptable sizes of projected images because each host organization has its own computer projector. Some projectors cannot show images greater than 1024 pixels wide and 768 pixels high without making them look either terribly pixelated or out of focus, whereas others, like our own BPS club, can handle images up to 1400 pixels wide and up to 1050 pixels high.

Therefore, it is very important that you check the rules for each competition and resize your photos accordingly before submitting them to the BPS Chair of Projected Image Competitions. The following table should help remind you of these requirements. Please check this table every year because some organizations change their rules.

Here are the mandatory maximum width and maximum height for projected images, regardless of whether the image is oriented horizontally or vertically. Smaller widths and/or heights are fine.
