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 projects. 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- Unless specified, photograph entries lying flat.- 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 projects.- 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).

Jewellery Photos

Photography Classes

- To be photographed being worn, either on a person or a mannequin/appropriate display structure.- Submit ORIGINAL digital photo in any of the accepted file types (JPEG, PNG, TIFF).

- If worn by a person, any identifying features such as face, tattoos, etc. should be cropped out of the photo for privacy reasons.- If the original photo was taken using a FILM CAMERA, submit a digitized (scanned, or photographed) version of the photograph.

- See Rule #13 & #14 for additional information on photo submissions.


HELPFUL HINTS

1. How do I choose my projects? Choose projects from the class list available from your school or at www.lindsayex.com. Avoid disqualification by paying close attention to Photo & Video Submission Guidelines as well as size requirements and computer use restrictions. Be sure to consult the Virtual Competition Resource Page for details on how to properly photograph your entries.

2. How will my project be judged? Projects are judged on neatness, creativity, following the directions and overall appearance. Make sure you check the Photo & Video Submission Guidelines as well as size limits and type of materials required from the entry list. This must be your own work.

3. How do I enter my project? If you are unable to do so yourself, have a teacher or family member TAKE A PHOTO OF THE PROJECT YOU WISH TO ENTER WITH THE VIRTUAL LEX ICON, available to print by Clicking Here, and SUBMIT IT TO www.assistexpo.ca/lindsayex. Students must visit AssistExpo to create a participant profile and submit their entries. Photos of all projects must be uploaded to AssistExpo in order to submit class entries. Make sure to follow the directions on Assist Expo and fill in all required fields on the entry page correctly.

4. How do I take a good photo or video of my entry? It is important that you have good lighting and a plain, distraction-free background for your photos and videos. Check out the Virtual Competition Resource Page on our website for more detailed tips and examples and pay close attention to the Photo & Video Submission Guidelines outlined above.

5. When do I submit my entries? Entries open August 1st, 2020. Entry deadline is 11:59 pm, Friday, September 18, 2020. Judging may begin immediately following this deadline.

3What to Name a Fish4Bien Assis
What to name a fish?
Call it what you wish;
Sally, Kelly, James or Blair.
It won't really give a care
Cause it's hard for it to hear
With all that water in its ear.
Dans un parc fleuri
On écoute chanter
Et on rit
Dans mon maillot rayé.
J'aime bien me baigner
Pour tenter d'oublier
La chaleur de l'été.

3No One4Une Oie Blanche
In this room
There's not a breeze.
No one sneezed
The littlest sneeze.
No one wheezed
The faintest wheeze.
The door's shut tight
With a big brass handle.
Who?
Who blew out the candle?
Une oie blanche descendait
Un escalier et chantait:
>> Je suis seule dans la maison,
Tra-la-la-li-la-la-lon
Tous les enfants sont sortis,
Tra-la-la-li-la-la-li
Je vais aller au jardin
Pour voir mon ami le chien.>>

3The Scarecrow4L'Automne
When all the cows were sleeping
And the sun had gone to bed,
Up jumped the scarecrow,
And this is what he said:
"I'm a dingle dangle scarecrow
With a flippy floppy hat.
I can shake my hands like this,
And shake my feet like that."
L'aube est moins claire,
L'air moins chaud,
Le ciel moins pur;
Les longs jours sont passés,
Les mois charmants finissent.
Hélas!
Voici déjà les arbres qui jaunissent!
L'automne est triste
Avec sa bise et son brouillard,
Et l'été qui s'enfuit
Est un ami qui part.

GRADE 5 - Using Pen and Cursive Writing

4What Will You Be?5Pour Ma Mère
They never stop asking me:
"What will you be?
A doctor, a dancer
A diver at sea?"
They never stop bugging me:
"What will you be?"
As if they expect me to
Stop being me.
Il y a plus de fleurs
Pour ma mère, en mon coeur,
Que dans tous les vergers;
Plus de merles rieurs
Pour ma mère, en mon coeur,
Que dans le monde entier;
Et bien plus de baisers
Pour ma mère, en mon coeur,
Qu'on ne pourrait en donner.

GRADE 6 - Using Pen and Cursive Writing

5Trees6Chevalure
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth's flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
J'ai un cheval qui galope
Souple comme une antilope;
Un beau cheval qui prend l'air
Dans mon pré imaginaire.
Sur le chemin de l'école
Avec moi il caracolait.
Nos crinères s'enlacent
Un trop court moment hélas!
Et quand tombent mes paupières
Je deviens son écuyère
Je lui dis: Allons, pleins gaz!
Du coup, il devient Pégase.

O Canada! Where pines and maples grow.
Great prairies spread and lordly rivers flow.
How dear to us thy broad domain,
From East to Western sea.

Thou True North, strong and free!
God keep our land glorious and free.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
Ô Canada! Terre de nos aïeux,
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!
Car ton bras sait porter l'épée
Il sait porter la croix!
Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brilliants exploits.
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

3The Maple Leaf Forever4Toujours, La feuille d'Erable
O, land of blue unending skies,
Mountains strong and sparkling snow,
A scent of freedom in the wind,
O'er the emerald fields below.
To thee we brought our hopes, our dreams,
For thee we stand together,
Our land of peace, where proudly flies,
The Maple Leaf forever.

Long may it wave, and grace our own,
Blue skies and stormy weather,
Within my heart, above my home,
The Maple Leaf forever!
Sur mers sauvages ou glaciers durs.
Tant d'héros se sont suivis,
En conquérant la peur, le froid.
Et les tempêtes de leurs vies.
Et tant de braves, rouges ou blancs,
Reposent ici ensemble,
De noble sang, de tant de neige,
Est née la feuille d'érable.

Sur nos montagnes, dans nos prairies,
À travers temps et sable,
Aimons toujours la fleur de lys,
Toujours, la feuille d'érable.

FEATURED - Poster Special - How Bees Benefit Mankind

- 1 photo of the poster submitted with entry for judging

HARD COPY OF ORIGINAL POSTER MUST BE DELIVERED TO THE LINDSAY EXHIBITION OFFICE BY SEPTEMBER 18, 2020. MUST BE IN A CLEAR GARBAGE BAG, SECURELY TIED.

NOTE: Poster must illustrate a benefit (or benefits) to mankind and will be judged on originality of ideas as well as quality of the art. Posters that do not describe or show a benefit will not be eligible for prize money.

Benefits of Bees: Bees are necessary to cross pollinate many plants. Without cross pollination, we would be unable to produce large crops of fruit (apples, pears, peaches, cherries, strawberries, raspberries, cranberries, blueberries etc.) Bees also cross pollinate many farm crops and greatly increase their yield (clover, canola, soybeans, etc). Many home garden vegetables also depend on bees for pollination (beans, cucumbers, pumpkins, squash, currants, melons, etc). Although honey bees are mainly kept for the honey and wax they produce, their chief benefit to us is pollination. Many wild bees also pollinate our crops (bumblebees, leaf cutter bees, etc). Honey bees are used to gather pollen for food and propolis (a resinous substance from plants) which is used by bees to seal up cracks, etc, in their home. Propolis is used by humans for medicinal purposes. Bee sting venom is also used for medicinal purposes.
