Use a dash between your initials, competition category and image title.

As an example – If Roy Chaplin were to enter a photo called “Blue Daisy” for Chilliwack Camera Club Assigned Subject the file would be like this         RC-CCCA-Blue Daisy.jpg

Summer shoot only needs your initials followed by the subject and title. For example my entry for “Wild” would be   RC-Wild-Marmots.jpg
