definately not rubbish, check with Andy at rps Nick, the failure rate on dpi is higher than prints at all levels.

sequecing is considered, jumps in colour tone from image to image, calibration errors, oversharpening. subject size relative to image size (eg birds being too big in frame looking oversize) a different set of complications come in to play. if you are entering salons, you will know how things vary and how what prints and what projects well are two different things

they actually say this at advisery days.

Sorry let me expand, yes Newmap I do agree with you in some respects. Some photographers believe that digital is the easy opition and entering projected files is a subsitute for entering poor quality work.
The case should be the image should be of sufficient quality and interest to be accepted regardless of being in print or digital format

I had a discussion with one wildlife photographer (not famous) who has entered international competitions and he was explaining that one of the biggest reasons for otherwise good images being thrown out without so much as a by your leave is things like colour accuracy and shades balance on projected images. In theory, this should not happen if both screens and the projector are well calibrated but it does.
Given that you never know how it is gong ot look on another screen (computer or projector), I would say you have more control over prints in that at least you know what it looks like.
