Thanks to several MMPC members that shared ideas to encourage participation in the Big Cookie. We want to reduce any barriers. The MMPC Board discussed the Big Cookie and decided to move to an ALL DIGITAL FORMAT for this activity. Starting in March 2022, Big Cookie participants are asked to bring their image on a flash drive. We will use the projector in the meeting room at the church to display the images. We will still have People’s and Judge’s choice competitions. So that the software does not alter your image, the following image format is recommended:

JPEG  quality = 100

Color Space = sRGB, this is really important

Resize to:

Width = 1280 pixels

Height = 800 pixels

Resolution = 72 pixels//inch

Sharpen for Screen Amount = High

ALL images must be submitted in a digital JPEG format to ensure a fair competition. Most software, including Lightroom and Photoshop can create a JPEG file in this format. Bring your image on a thumb drive.

We are hoping that we get at least 5-6 food stations for club members to photograph. Feel free to bring a photogenic dish, if you can. We will be shooting before we eat, so don’t bring anything that needs to be eaten right away. We hope that those attending eat the food, and do not leave remains for us to dispose of. Bring your camera, tripod, and a constant light source, such as an LED. Tablecloths or backgrounds will also be helpful. There are a few sample photos from a similar event on the Facebook group. This will be fun!
