Panoramic photo dimensions in Anything Goes category

To LAPC Membership 

October 23-2017 

The following is in response to the question on panoramic dimensions for 2017 annual club contest. 

Subject:  Panoramic photo dimensions in Anything Goes category. 

The rule will be left as originally written. 
http://linnareaphotoclub.org/annual-contest-rules/

The reason for this is the word minimum written in 7.2.3.
This will let a photo with a higher ratio be admitted, but with a maximum length of 42”.
In other words, you can use a larger ratio as long as it is no longer than 42” and 14″ on the short side. 

Examples; 

  1. 14”X42” Permissible  3:1 ratio (maximum dimensions)
  1. 10”X40” Permissible  4:1 ratio 
  1. 6”X42”   Permissible  7:1 ratio 
  1. 14”X28” Permissible 2:1 ratio 
  1. 6”X12”   Permissible 2:1 ratio 

We will change wording for 2018 to clarify this.
