14th  Oct Colour, Mono and Set Subject (all Print and EDI)

Set Subject: Vertical Panoramic

In this case the panoramic picture needs to be in portrait mode and of a ratio equal to or greater than 2:1. A photo straight out of a camera in portrait mode IE 2 x 3 wouldn’t meet the criteria and would need to be cropped. If submitting as an EDI where the vertical limitation is 1200 pixels then the horizontal must be equal to or less than 600 pixels. You can go to a higher ratio IE 3:1 or greater is fine. We will provide some tutorials closer to the time.
