2013 Photo Contest Rules & Regs announced


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.

Mixing Photography, Wine and Friendship: September issue of e-Monitor published!

Chalon River View Quaides Menageries

Burgundy is one of 27 regions of France. Chalon-sur-Saone, the city of the IAPP June meeting and exhibit, lies in the southern part of the region. Besides being the center of a large wine-growing area, it is birthplace of Joseph Nicephore Niepce, considered by many to be the father of photography.

New Board of Directors

As many of you realize, August 10 was the deadline to receive votes against the volunteers.

Questions were raised as to the “legality” of this voting system, whether or not we could count votes against, instead of for. This was researched in the Policy Manual by the previous secretary and he found there was no statement that claimed we could not run the vote this way.

We received no votes against. So, the slate of new officers is as follows:

President – Glenn Cope

President-Elect – Paul Speaker

Secretary  – OPEN

Treasurer – Tom Sheckels

Past President – David Orbock

BOD Members (need 3)

Dave Kutz

Stephen Acai


As you can see, we need a few more members to step up.

Many things are being planned: two of which are the upcoming semi-annual Conference and the future of the Panoramic Association’s own photo contest.

If you have opinions and a little time to donate, your organization needs you. Contact your president: Glenn Cope!
