Irish Astrophotography Exhibition November 2018

5 months 3 weeks ago #107014 by michael_murphy
You are invited to submit an image to go on national display at the National Botanic Gardens, Dublin next November 2018!

Following the very successful "Images of Starlight" photo exhibition in February 2016 we intend to organise a similar astronomy photo exhibition in time for Science Week next November.

"Images of Starlight - 2018" is another opportunity for astrophotographers in Ireland to showcase their work and present a new collection of images of the cosmos at the National Botanical Gardens in Glasnevin Dublin. As before, it is a collaboration between the Irish Astronomical Society ( www.irishastrosoc.org ) and the Irish Federation of Astronomical Societies ( www.irishastronomy.org ). We expect a considerable level of interest from the public and from the media. On the last occasion, we had more than 8000 visitors, coverage in the Press and on RTE Radio and TV. See: here

The Details

The exhibition will begin during Science Week and will run from November 11th until December 2nd. We will be able to display up to 60 framed images in the available exhibition space at the National Botanic Gardens. The exhibition will be staffed by volunteers to help interpret the images for members of the public. We also hope to incorporate additional items like presenting examples of telescopes, large format poster displays and more.

The Criteria
Your photo can be submitted in digital or printed format. The following are guidelines:

1. Digital prints must be at 300dpi and in its largest format aspect ratio.
2. TIFF format is preferred, or high resolution (300dpi) JPEG is also allowed (RGB or CMYK is acceptable).
3. Physical prints must be of a high quality (uncurled or folded) and can have a gloss or matte finish. Do not send mounted prints.
4. All photos will be fitted, landscape or portrait format, in an A3 mount and frame, and therefore may be subjected to a minimum amount of cropping, if necessary.
5. All images submitted must have the following details attached:
  • Image Title:
  • Location
  • Date Captured:
  • Telescope or lens used:
  • Cameras used:
  • Exposure(s):
  • Techniques and software:


Interested?

Images can be sent via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. as an attachment (please do not include off-site links to images).

CLOSING DATE
All considerations must be received by Friday, September 28th, 2018.

Please Note
  1. If submitting a printed photo, it cannot be returned. Images supplied DO NOT become the property of the Irish Astronomical Society or the Irish Federation of Astronomical Societies, and copies and prints will be discarded after the exhibition (unless otherwise stated, whereupon the photographer will be contacted accordingly).
  2. Images will be selected by a committee on the basis of presenting the best-balanced collection of 60 images for the general public. The committee's selection decision will be final.
  3. Photos submitted may become part of any promotional campaign to be used in print format and in online news sources and social media specific to this exhibition.
  4. The organisers and their affiliated clubs (IAS, IFAS, or other) are not responsible for lost postal submissions, lost or misdirected emails (an autoresponder will confirm your email's arrival), or incorrect information supplied.

Want to help out?
The exhibition itself will be manned by volunteers from day to day. Do you think you would like to give a day of your time to act as a sort of exhibition administrator and tour guide? Then please let us know!

Good luck, and thank you,

Hi Michael,

Attempting to send a couple of images - but the email system just cannot handle these large TIFF files. I think we had this problem before.....only thing I can think of to put the images on something like DropBox for downloading at other end. (I know you said no links.....but what to do!)

​​Hi, i was hoping to send some images in .tif format but i can send max 25mb file size. Google drive allows upload then creates a link for you to download the image. Is this acceptable or is there another way?

Kind regards,
Richard.

There are two months to go until the closing date on Friday, September 28th, 2018. Many thanks to those photographers who have already submitted images. Standard looks excellent.

Remember its a showcase of astrophotography to help promote Irish astronomy, we will try to exhibit as many images as possible. As well as the sixty or so framed images on the available wall space we intend to put on a computer slideshow of all images received.

Let's hope we do even better than last time when we had more than 8000 visitors within three weeks at the same venue and good media coverage RTE News

I've emailed three images to you. Hopefully they were received OK as the file size is quite large.
