Guideline on saving photographs and posters:

  • You should use a camera that will produce a photograph in as high a resolution as possible  (when saved it should be less than 2MB in size).
  • Save a copy of the photograph in its original format before any editing takes place. (This is important as if your entry is shortlisted you will be asked to forward a copy of the original photograph).
  • Then use your photograph to create your poster using the templates provided below or  using photo editing software.
  • When you are happy with your edited poster you will save this as per the guidelines in the links that follow. (The edited poster when saved should be less than 2MB in size.)
  • You then submit your edited poster before the deadline given.
  • Remember, if shortlisted you will be asked to also submit the original high resolution photograph later so make sure you keep it somewhere safe!!!

 NB: It is very important that you adhere to the guidelines on saving photographs and edited posters or Geogebra files for both competitions before you enter.
