1. Liaise with the Judge
- In the month before the competition, contact the judge to remind them that they have agreed to judge for us.
- Ask the judge how they will be presenting their comments and awards - i.e. via Flickr, text document, email, audio file or video etc.
- Send them the link to our For our Judges page which details everything they need to know.
2. Receive images and upload to Flickr
- Members post their images to Dropbox via links on the Members Only page of the website.
- After the submission deadline (see our Program) download the images from Dropbox and upload the images to our Flickr pages.
- If the judge will be commenting in Flickr, change the security of the images to "Friends" during the upload process, otherwise leave as "Public".
- Procedures on how to upload to Flickr can be found at Uploading to Flickr
- Create two albums - one for Set Subject images and one for Open images - and add the uploaded images to the relevant albums.
- Send the judge the links to the two Flickr albums and ask him to contact you if he has any problems.
