Just a reminder that your photos must be submitted by 5:00 pm and you must register on 4-H connect as well.

The following is taken directly from the district guidelines.

Photographs must have been taken by the 4-H members since January 1, 2011.

 All entries for the 2012 District 5 4-H Photography Contest will be completed using the 4-H
Connect system and e-mail. Please read and follow the submission guidelines very carefully to
ensure correct entry classification.

Formatting Your Photograph:

Each photograph must be formatted in a jpg file to where it can be printed at 300dots per inch
(dpi) at a 3 inch X 5 inch size. File must not be over 1.5 MB in size to upload.

Labeling/Naming Your Photograph:

Each photograph will need to be clearly labeled with the members age division, the name of the
category, county, and the 4-H member’s name. For example, a Junior member entering the
domestic animals category would label their entry as “JR_Domestic_County_Member Name.”
Please use the category file names provided in the photography guidelines.

E-mailing Photographs:

In the subject line of the e-mail, include the name of the 4-H member and their county.
