February 2012 clip contest is now open

Please make sure to review the rules, there are some changes for 2012:

  • You may now enter an image in a single image category and a multiple category. This does constitute two of your 9 entries. Make sure to enter the image twice, example: fe_jdsmith1.jpg and the second would go along with your multiple as mu_jdsmith5.jpg. (Some participants are not labeling their multiple category properly. If images are not labeled properly they can go missing or be disqualified.)
  • We have stripped down the amount of metadata that needs to be entered. You can find out the changes here: http://www.wnpaonline.com/graphpaper/2011/02/monthly-digital-clip-contest-rules/

Thanks again for entering.

1) Prepare your files.

Filenaming is very critical because if you upload two images with the same file name, one will be overwritten. To solve this, please follow the following naming convention to ensure everyone has unique file names:

Start with the two letter category code followed by an underscore:

Spot news = sn_
General news = gn_
Feature = fe_
Multiple = mu_
Illustration = il_
Sports = sp_
Portrait = po_

Then follow it by your first initial, then your middle initial then your last name. If you have more than one photo in a category follow it by a number. For example:

Jon Doe Smith enters two photos in the spot news category:

sn_jdsmith1.jpg
sn_jdsmith2.jpg

Please number your multiple category pictures in the order you want judges to view them. If you have more than 10 photos make sure they go 01, 02, 03…09, 10, 11, etc.

2) Go to airdropper.com/wnpaonline and for the password, type in the month of you want to submit to:

For example:
april
june

This will then take you to the upload page where you can upload all the files you have for that month all at once.
