PHOTO & VIDEO SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Welcome to the first ever Virtual Lindsay Exhibition! We understand that a virtual exhibition is a new format for most of our exhibitors and may pose challenges for entry submissions. We created this section to help our exhibitors ensure that the photos and videos they submit properly represent the quality of their entries and enable the judges to view the entries in a similar manner as they would in person. Please pay special attention to the guidelines we have laid out in this section to ensure your submissions properly showcase the work you have put into your exhibits. For more tips, examples and links to tutorials, please visit the Virtual Competitions Resource page on our website, Virtual Competition Resource Page.

General

Photos

Videos

- If making multiple entries, plan to photograph/video everything in one session and upload media for all entries at the same time.- Unless otherwise specified, use plain white background. Example: white table cloth, white pillow case, white bed sheet, etc.- Minimize background distractions. A plain white background is recommended, where possible.
- Avoid the use of flash- Photograph entries lying flat, where possible.- Use a tripod if possible to steady the image and move slowly.
- The project should occupy as much of the photo/video frame as possible. Adjust the camera angle and distance from the object to maximize the space occupied by the entry.- Take multiple photos, then select the best from the group. This increases your chances of capturing a photo that accurately portrays your work.- Mute all of your videos before submitting.
- Natural lighting is the most reliable light source for a quality photo or video. Keep the light source behind the camera to avoid darkening the image and make sure that no shadows appear in the frame of view. This is especially important when photographing paper exhibits.- Any device with a camera can be used. Make sure to focus your entry before taking the photo by tapping the screen on a smartphone/tablet or lightly depressing the shutter button on a digital camera.

- All videos should be filmed in landscape view. This means if you are recording on a smartphone or tablet, make sure to turn your device to a horizontal position before beginning to record.

- Double check that your file types match the accepted file types before submitting.- Accepted photo file formats: JPEG, PNG or TIFF files- Accepted video file formats: MOV or MP4
- Make sure to download, print, and include the Virtual LEX Icon in all photos (Rule #12).

- Do not enhance or adjust your submission files (Rule #14).
