    Hi :)
    I've got a question regarding the image size that we send for APOY.

    "Your image must be at least 2,700 (3,000 maximum) pixels along its longest dimension" it says.

    My Photos are usually 4608*3456. Does it mean I should reduce it? If so, which size is the most appropriate?

    Which part of the above instruction don't you understand?
    If you use any software, there should be a means to reduce the image size. It's up to you how small you want to make it, but as is said, it has to be at least 2700 pixels on the longest side and up to 3000 pixels if you wish - but no bigger.

    Yes you should reduce...

    I understand there are a lot of rules and it can be difficult to grasp everything,

    But its up to you what size to reduce too as long as its between 2700 - 3000px along the longest side, I have personally made the longest side 3000px if you lock the Ratio then it will adjust the shortest side too..

    it seems unless you are a reg on these forums, then the only support you get is sarcastic support.

    Good Luck. :)

    Is it compulsory to accept a prize? Having read the rules, I'd appreciate clarity on this point. Quite simply, what is on offer is totally incompatible with my equipment and therefore of no use whatsoever to me, so that, should I enter and, wonder of wonders, actually win, I would have to say that I don't want it, winning the round is prize enough. ( Prizes never particularly motivate me anyway). Am I therefore excluded from entering?

    Definitely not!
    Accept and donate or sell it. :)

    There is in another place, however, does this help?

    APOY 2015 consisted of 8 rounds. APOY 2016 will be announced next year in the magazine and online, there is no need to 'sign up'. Also you can enter as many rounds as you wish to, one entry per round.
