Complete the online entry process. Ensure that you have entered the correct category, provided caption details if required, and have declared the people or services you engaged to assist in the preparation of your print entries.
When the online entry has been completed and paid, print a copy of the supplied print identification labels and address labels. Place the print identification label on the back of your mount in the top left-hand corner. This determines how your print will be oriented for the judges.
Print and mount your images in accordance with the image presentation requirements on pages 33 and 34. The visible print (the image as seen through the matte, if any) must be a minimum of 25cm on its longest side. If your matte covers the edge of the print, you will need to make the print slightly larger to meet this requirement. Prints may exceed the 25cm requirement, up to the 50x40cm mount size.
