Final Image TIFF uploads open

OK everyone!

Now that we're closing in to the end of the challenge, it's time to start uploading your final TIFFs via FTP.

Head over here - - to get your FTP details. Upload your image to the FTP location given (remember to give the ZIP the specified filename) and hit the Refresh Image button.

Good luck!

Hello Mibus

at this address

My final entry comes up with the first draft of my story. I've edited the text since then a few times, for spelling and other concerns, and I'd like people to see its final form with the image. I'd appreciate if it can be updated as it appears in my thread now... Is that possible?

Thanks a lot!

You can re-post the same image you uploaded last time, along with your final written copy.

shall I name the Zip file the number code shown at the "ftp information" screen? and how do I have to write my final TIFF?

Preferably as an uncompressed RGB TIFF.

Your name is on your CGChallenge entry, which is automatically linked with the filename you are given for your ZIP.

Jadir, to be sure if it is uploaded, try to click on "Refresh" in the "Submit Final image" cpanel. If your image appear there (a little button and then if you click on it a resized image appears in another window) is that it is correct, if not you need to upload it again. Hope it helps.

Question Actual deadline for final submissions?

Please would someone know when the final submission time will be for my local time zone as I am little confused. I am in UK so I am currently GMT 0 (DST+1) which is 22.22pm on Sat 27 October. The stated date for final submissions in the instructions is 29th October with no time given. However when I make an submission entry the time left says Time left: 2 days, 14 hours, 34 minutes - which would be the Monday 30th October at about 1pm on Tuesday 30th October for my local time. I thought maybe this discrepancy was due to the times being different in Adelaide where CGSociety is located but it appears that the 29th of October will actually be tomorrow for my local time (Sunday 28th October) as Adelaide is 10 1/2 hour ahead. Which time reckoning is the one to use?

Thanks for help in advance.

Hi, Mibus,

Thank you

1. Does the file name of the Final Image that we zip have to be same as the name for the ZIP folder?
Like for example if the ZIP folder is must the file within be named 928745_252.tif ? Or can it be anything?

2. Do we have to upload a .txt with the text associated with the image, or will you check the text in our challenge page?

3. Is it ok if the resolution of the image is bigger than 2657x3636 ? Regardless of the answer to that... how can I see what DPI amount my image has?

I'm sorry for asking so many questions, but I want to be sure I'm doing it right!
Thank you!

Yap, hi Mibus..
Well me too, don't get it, THe counter says still 1 day and 11hours, which means that down here in BElgium the contest will end on tuesday the 30th at 14h +/-...
Is that so?Do I just respect the counter above the submit page?
Thanks Mibus!

Time of closing - run by the countdown timer!

Maximum filesize - don't be silly, but 100MB+ isn't any problem.

File name - just the ZIP, the TIFF can be anything

Text file - nope

Image resolution - anything* you want, 2657x3636 is a guideline only.

(* as long as it's print-resolution for a full A4-ish page, or close enough to).
