Images should be resized for competition so that they are 1400 pixels wide and 1050 pixels high. If your image ends up smaller than this in one dimension then the canvas size should be increased by adding a black background.
If you have a portrait-format image, it first needs to be reduced so that it is only 1050 high (and less than that wide) and it the needs to have black canvas areas added on the left and right to make the image size up to 1400 by 1050.

Please remember, all images must be sized 1400px wide and 1050px high, whether they are landscape or portrait formats. You shouldn’t have a portrait format image sized any higher than 1050px (so NOT 1400px high and 1050px wide). If your image, when resized, is not exactly 1400px by 1050px then you will need to add some BLACK (no other colour) canvas EITHER to the sides or the top and bottom BUT NOT BOTH. The tutorial above shows you how to do this.
