The guidelines below are for the submission of profile photos as requested. Executive committee members who have not submitted their photos should use the linked button to our upload form. Invited event speakers at forthcoming events may also use the button below to upload their photos. Please submit your photos with abstracts using a dedicated abstracts submission form (link shown below). We realise your time is essential; we have made our photo request instructions as simple as possible. The whole process should take no more than a couple of minutes to sort out for submission.
A full body shot from the knee up facing the camera is required (your shoulders should not be angled for the picture). Our web designer will process submitted photos to remove backgrounds and create the appropriate size needed for our website. A clear background is recommended (white is optimal) to ensure proper extraction of the subject.
Get an assistant to shoot your photo (avoid the use of selfie shots). A modern smartphone is as good as a DSLR Camera for this purpose. Ensure the camera lens is clean before shooting your photo to ensure optimal digital clarity.
The photos requested must be done as shown above (full body shot). This will enable our web developer to ensure proper sizing for uniformity.
Cropped shoulder portrait photos such as the one shown below will be rejected, and the sender will be asked to resubmit.
Photos taken from the knee up are essential for other uses beyond portrait headshots. SCPS Executive committee members and CCPS Council members have individual profile pages where standing photos are used. Our web developer will crop your standing photos as needed for various purposes. Do not do this yourself.
It is essential to ensure that your photo is submitted in full resolution without any compressio. This is required to ensure everything is pixel perfect for today's high-density modern screens on mobile devices and computers.
The submission form below should be used by those invited to submit photos for our website. This includes executive SCPS committee members, CCPS Council members and special guests. If you are presenting at our 2022 congress and are submitting an abstract, please submit your photo using the form found on the calls for abstracts page along with your abstracts word document.
