I just wanted to give a brief update as to how we are making out with getting prepared for the annual Multi Screen competition. We have a date and place for multi screen. It will be Saturday May 4th 7pm at the Swansea Community Center 260 Ocean Grove Avenue Swansea, MA. This greatly helps us to finalize all of our dates:
- Final submission date – Midnight, Friday April 12. All images that are to be considered for this year’s MultiScreen Competition must be submitted before this deadline
- Final MultiScreen Selection Night – Tuesday, April 16
- MultiScreen Competition – May 4
At the Final Multiscreen Selection Night (April 16) the club members will be voting to select the one image from each category that will be used to represent PSRI at Multiscreen on May 4th.
We are still looking for more images from all categories, but there are still several categories that we could use a little help. Here is a list of the Multiscreen Categories that need the most work. I’ve seen photos from the resent contest that might be good. Some of these can be easily taken at home with a little creativity… ie fruit, fingers, illusion, sweet hearts, …
4 – Chrome
7 – Festival
8 – Fingers
9 – Fountain
10 – Fruit
12 – Illusion
17 – Power
19 – Stained Glass
20 – Stairs
21 – Stormy
22 – Sweet Hearts
23 – Transportation
24 – Wide Angle
The final step is to submit your images, and that is really simple. Here are the instructions! The file size needs to be less than 500k, and the max Height is 768, with a max Width of 1024. Please make sure that you follow this naming convention exactly when you name the image. The image file itself MUST be named this way. You CANNOT just put this name in the body of the email, or as the subject of the email. It MUST be the name of the file itself. Here is the naming convention that you need to use.
- Start with category number
- Then image number
- Then Category Name
- Then PSRI
- Then submitter Last, First name.
Here are some examples:

04_02_ Chrome _PSRI_ Dooley _ Mike.JPG
07_01_ Festival _PSRI_ Dooley _ Mike.JPG
Notice that you can submit as many images to a single category as you would like, just make sure that you give each one a unique image number. In the above examples, I am submitting 2 images (numbered 1 and 2) to Category 4, which is the category for Chrome, and the 1 image (numbered 1) to category 7, which is the category for Festival.
Please submit images as early as possible so that the chairman has a chance to put all of the images into a slideshow for the pre-selection meeting. Simply send the images to the Multi-Screen chairperson, Lincoln Ross. Multiscreen has its own email address; firstname.lastname@example.org. Please don’t include more than 5 images per email. Please do NOT zip the images up, as it creates more work for the person managing all the images. And please take a moment to thank Lincoln for volunteering his time as this is a big job that he undertakes for the club!
Good luck PSRI, and Happy Shooting!
