How to Enter
The entry process has been simplified with a short online application form, providing contact information which can be completed quickly and simply.
When this is completed just upload your entry - preferably as PDF.
You can upload several attachment files, if required.
Please note that there is a 5MB limit per file. You will receive an error message if you try to exit before the upload is complete.
1: Ensure that the file does not exceed 5MB
2: Where possible save documents as a PDF
3: Do not include high res artworks or photographs (these will exceed the max file size)
4: If you experience difficulties in uploading a document, please convert to a PDF (which is lower in file size and more compliant with the system)
