There are a couple of ways that we have determined will work, but a lot depends on the progress of the COVID-19 pandemic. The deadline remains the same – This Sunday, March 22. We will not accept essays submitted after that time.

Your essays MUST be in mp4 format. If you create your essay in PC only exe format you need to convert it to mp4 format. Once you are done use WeTransfer to upload your essay to me ( and to Laszlo ( You only have to upload your essay once – enter my email address in the Email to port, hit the return key, and then enter Laszlo’s address. Your essay will be sent to both of us at the same time.

Your essay mp4 file name must be in the form: “first name_last name-essay title.mp4“. As always, you can not use any special characters. Good luck!

Sight and Sound Essay

Although the Photo Guild is suspending all meetings until the end of April, we are investigating the options for the Sight & Sound Essay judging and as a result, the originally scheduled deadline of March 22 for submitting the essay does not change.

If you are planning to submit your essay, please prepare it as an MP4 video.

More information will be forth coming in the next couple of days as we work out the details.

The spread of COVID-19 is unprecedented, and in the interests of members and friends of the Guild the executive has taken a decision to suspend ALL Guild activities until the end of April. We will continuously monitor the Government of Nova Scotia’s COVID-19 website and reassess our decision as more information becomes available.

Thank you for your understanding,
