Instructions for photos & bios
Reminder: Limit of two individuals and/or one team submitted from each county where your agency has a separate operating agreement.
Please upload at least three—electronic color photo(s) for each honoree and/or team as a jpg file. One photo will be used for the poster (see specifications below), while all the photos will be used to create the short videos. To ensure high-quality reproduction results:
The minimum image resolution should be 1150 x 920 pixels per inch.
For the poster photo, focus on the honoree’s head and shoulders for both individuals and teams.
Try to avoid the “mug shot” look.
Select a pleasing background to ensure a high-quality photo, void of shadows and without background interference (trees, windows, fences, building facades, etc.).
The additional photos for the videos can be more of the “fun/quirky” variety.
Identify each attached photo with honoree’s name and/or team members’ names and agency. If an agency is submitting photos for two individual honorees, number the photo and match it to the number on the entry form. Team photos should be labeled as members are arranged (left to right, front to back).
If an honoree’s name is unusual or difficult to pronounce, please provide a phonetic spelling of the name.
Note: These photos represent both your employee(s) and your agency. It is important to submit a quality product. Electronic, professional-quality photos in color are preferred. The photos will be displayed on the honoree’s commemorative poster and video. If you do not have digital capabilities or need assistance, please contact Debi LaVaque at firstname.lastname@example.org.
