IAPP Panoramic Convention Print Contest

Framed or mounted images will not be shown. The following specs are recommended (and may not be exceeded, due to space limitations):

  1. For regular panos from film panoramic cameras and stitched panos from digital cameras, the maximum size is 44″ on the long side & 14″ on the short side, a 4:1 ratio. Prints must have a 2″ white border all around, so the actual maximum image area will be 40″ x 10″ on 44″ x 14″ paper. Other ratios may be used, but must be a minimum of a 2:1 ratio or greater, with the aforementioned maximums of 44″ on the long side and 14″ on the short side, including the margins.
  2. For multi-row stitched panos whose aspect ratio is greater than 1:4 (including Gigapans), Little Planet and VR style images, the maximum size is 44″ x 44″ including the obligatory 2″ white margin all around, making the final image area 40″ x 40″, maximum.

I AM bored of DIRECTORS!!!

:)

I know. That is a bit much. But really… didn’t it make you read this?

We are receiving a few volunteers for the next Board. FINALLY. Look for an email from us concerning how to cast your vote. Thanks!

Board Officers invitation

It is that time of year when we think of celebrating the Holidays.  It is also time to think about the needs of your IAPP.  We are approaching the time to elect new officers and directors of your Board.  We need members to volunteer their services in order to maintain the viability of our Association.  We must have members willing to step up to assist in running IAPP and planning future activities.  This does mean that we need you to offer a few hours each month to work on tasks as determined by your President and Officers.  So in this season of giving, please give a serious thought toward volunteering yourself as a nominee for a Board position, either as an Officer or Director.

 

Board meeting blurb

Tonight we had a nice board meeting. A couple of quick notes:

  1. The conference was not only enjoyable but profitable as well.
  2. We are coming to the end of this Board’s tenure and need replacements.
    If you wish to volunteer, contact John McCarthy 
  3. We are planning the next conference in the great NW. If you want to volunteer to be on the planning committee contact: Glenn Cope
