IT’S NEVER TOO EARLY to enter
your favorite large-scale photos
There's still time to enter!
The 13 winning photos will be featured in the 2019 BTOC Calendar, included with the Winter/2018 issue
of the Big Train Operator magazine.
Images will be accepted in digital or print format. In order to ensure the highest quality reproduction, please read the following:
Format: 4" X 6" (minimum size), 8" X 10" (maximum size) photographic prints, color
or black and white. Photos should be clear, sharp and have good contrast.
Resolution: Min. 300 dpi when resized to 8" X 10" Format: EPS, JPEG, TIFF. Maximum quality.
Acceptable media: Zip drives, CDs and e-mail delivery.
Remember: An image that looks great on your monitor at 72dpi will print like a mosaic-tiled floor when enlarged.
Please keep in mind that if you take a low-resolution digital photo and “size it up”, it will become “pixilated” or grainy and therefore will be unusable. If your digital image is not used on the grounds that it isn’t of a high-enough resolution, please understand this is not a matter of taste or opinion, it’s a technical fact. Photos embedded in a Microsoft Word file won’t work, they must be high resolution and separate from the document.
Submit entries to:
117 W. 55th St.
Westmont, IL 60559-2215
or e-mail high-res images to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Photos become the property of the BTOC and cannot be returned. The BTOC reserves the right to limit the number of final entries per member.
DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES: OCTOBER 15, 2018.
