The Ohio Stereo Photographic Society

Invites you to participate

in the 2016 Ohio International Stereo Exhibition



Closing: June 1, 2016



PSA Recognition Stereographers are invited to submit their work to our International Exhibition.  Judges will be looking for original and artistic interpretations in a variety of  subject matter. Consideration will be given also to technical aspects such as exposure, alignment and placement of the stereo window.

Image Format

Only electronic images are accepted.  Each entrant may submit up to four (4) images, each image being in one parallel view JPEG file that is no more than 1080 pixels tall or no more than 2x1920 pixels wide.   (This is a change from previous years. You do not need to add black border to bring the images to the exactly 2x1920x1080 size, or projectors will resize your images.)

Maximum file size of each image pair should not exceed 2.0 MB, total not to exceed 8MB. 

Many of our club members use StereoPhoto Maker to resize the images.  Details are here: (ignore the naming part - follow the naming convention below.)  

For images not conforming to the above dimensions, the Exhibition Chairman reserves the right to adjust the overall stereo pair dimensions to accommodate the equipment used for the judging session without cropping or otherwise altering the image aspect ratio and image contents. 

Please name each image as follows:

Lastname_Firstname_Image Title_01.jpg 

(Example: Themelis_George_This is the Title_01.jpg)

Use 01, 02, 03, 04 for the 4 images in the order you would like them judged. Spaces and dashes may be used in the image title but no special characters such as commas, brackets, periods, etc. If you have any questions regarding this format, please contact the Exhibition Chairman.
