  • Entrants may submit a maximum of 4 images to the single entry option and a maximum of 6 if you enter a portfolio entry.
  • Entrants' images must be .jpg or .jpeg format and of high enough quality (at least 1920px) on their longest side.
  • We recommend all images are output to 1920px on their longest side at 72 ppi. Any larger than this and you are supplying images bigger than they will be seen or used by IGPOTY judges; your files will take longer to upload and/or download to judges and viewers’ screens.
