Deadline TODAY, April 5th: No Fee Slide Show Contest

Palm Springs Photo Festival
Call for Entries: No Fee Slide Show Contest
Deadline: TODAY, Friday, April 5, 2013

“Each evening of the festival we present the work of 4 finalists. Your work could be seen by the participants and attendees of the PSPF on the large screen in the Annenberg Theater of the Palm Springs Art Museum.

Send us your slide shows! You can send as many as you like. Please try to be sure they are sent in Mac readable format, with each image saved separately in a folder as well as incorporated into your show. The slide shows you send will be used by us as a guide – also distributed to our judges, so they needn’t be perfect nor large – not more than 30 megs please. We accept Quicktime movies, Power Point and Keynote presentations. You may also simply send jpgs in a folder with your music or audio track selection and if your work is selected, we’ll put it together. Please number your images in the order you’d like them projected. Slide shows cannot be longer than three minutes in duration and should have music. If you don’t we’ll try to marry the work with music at our end. If you choose to send a complete slide show, please also include your music or audio track file in a separate folder on your disk or in your upload. All images should be sized to 2000 pixels on the long dimension. We request you send us a brief text about your submission. Be sure to include your name, address, email address and telephone number with your submission. There is no entry fee required.
