Image Evaluation - A Strong Start to the Club Year (7:00 PM PDT)
A new club year has begun and we are looking to start things off with a strong showing. As always, the first evaluation night of the year is open, but with one provision: All submitted images MUST have been taken in 2018 - no digging back through old archives tonight. We are looking forward to seeing what you have to share tonight. Our Judge tonight is Carolyn Angus - you can see some of her work here: http://yourshot.nationalgeographic.com/profile/1280956/ Remember - the submission of images has changed. DO NOT email images to RPC.Evaluations. You will upload your images to this website following the instructions located at BD Tips. You must be logged in to the RPC website Do NOT email images to RPC.Evaluations You must upload only your own images and no-one else can upload them for you (unless logged as you).  The logged-in person who uploads is the owner of the images. File names must consist of only the image title, or you must edit the title in your image library to remove any elements that should not be there.  The title must be nothing but the title - no level or sequence numbers and above all it must not include your name (The title is displayed below the projected image during judging) Level and sequence numbers are not required.  The system knows your level, and images are displayed automatically by level (1 to 4) and within each level, according to a randomly assigned sequence number.. The deadline for submissions (7 pm on Monday) is firm.  There is no leeway.  If you are late the system will not accept your entries.  Period! Do not expect any acknowledgement from myself. If you are anxious and need to confirm that your images have been entered:  In the main menu Click Competitions> Competition Management > Submit Images to a Competition > Select the applicable evaluation competition and you will see what you have submitted. You do not have to submit all your images at once - you may submit one or two and come back later for the other
