Help with print sizes

Post by lisacroft »

What is the maximum size of the prints for the competition? 6" x 8" seems small (on the rules page) as the prints shown on Thursday were larger? I'm confused.
Any help please?

Hi Lisa

Minimum size for prints is: 8" x 6" but they must be mounted on boards measuring 40cm x 50cm. People usually print to A3 but A4 can be used, however these can look small in comparison.

Here is a link to the rules page on the website: http://www.adaps.org.uk/Competition%20Rules%202013.pdf

Page 2 explains about sizes of prints etc:
2) The minimum size of a photographic print should be no less than 48 square inches or 300 square centimetres. (This equates to a minimum print size of around 8"x6" or 20 x 15 cm).
3) Prints must be mounted on any colour of standard card mount which is 40cm x 50cm in size and should not exceed 4mm in thickness.
Obviously, your print can't be larger than the board :roll:

Hope this help.

Tracey
