Why can I not resize the image to the correct DPI?
You may not resize smaller images to larger resolutions. This destroys the quality of the piece, creates "pixelation", and such submissions will be rejected.
Film Cameras - If you have taken a photograph with a Film camera, simply rescan it at a higher resolution and DPI. If possible use the negative from the original film for maximum quality. Local photo stores and developers can provide this service to you if you do not have the proper equipment.
Digital Cameras - For users of digital cameras, your camera will have to support the minimum resolution output of the smallest print size.
Digital Artists - For straight digital artists; only high resolution pieces are eligible for sale.
