American Institute of Architects, California Council 2012 COUNCIL AWARDS PROGRAM ONLINE SUBMITTING: When you have completed your entry using the PowerPoint templates provided , converted to PDF format, and ZIPPED, go to the link below to upload to our awards FTP site: http://aiacc.org/awards-upload/ Username and password for the FTP site is in the confirmation email you received upon registration. If you have questions, call the Alyssa Griego at 916-642-1703 or email awards@aiacc.org. Your digital entries must be received by 11:59 PM PST , May 20th 2011. NO LATE ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED. • SUBMITTAL FILE PREPARATION • (continued): • The Photo & Uncompensated Intern Release slides must include the following : • Photographer Release slide – This information will not be seen by the jury. • Uncompensated Intern slide – This information will not be seen by the jury. • POWER POINT TEMPLATE INFORMATION: • To submit the final PDF slides, select the “save as” command in the PowerPoint template and select the option to “save as PDF”. All of the slides for each template will be saved in order as they appear in the Power Point template file. Please open your saved PDF file prior to submitting to AIACC to ensure all of your slides have been included, are legible and in the proper order. See Part 1 on slide 1 of these instructions for file naming conventions. • IMAGE PREPARATION TIPS: • PowerPoint “slides” are the equivalent of 10” wide by 7.5” high and images of a resolution between 150 to 200 pixels per inch (ppi or dpi) are generally of adequate quality for most display devices. Given this, a 200 ppi image at full bleed on the slide will result in an image of 2000 pixels wide x 1500 pixels high. Increasing the image size to 300 ppi will likely double the file size with no discernable improvement in image quality. • Use file types that allow compression to keep the file sizes low, use jpg or png images and avoid using tif files. • Size your images in an image editor such as Photoshop before bringing them into PowerPoint, crop them to the appropriate size so that they do not “hang” off the edge of the viewable area and avoid stretching within PowerPoint to assure quality. It’s always best to start with a high quality image and down-sample to reduce file size. A 100 ppi image up-sampled to 200 ppi will not be as clear as if you started with a 300 ppi image and down-sampled to 200 ppi.
