• Colour Images (COL)

There links below for a downloadable manual entry form, to be completed in block capitals, and alternatively a machine fillable form which can be typed onscreen and printed to go with your CD and entry fee. 
The FILENAME must be the CODE for the category entered, immediately followed by a hyphen and then the TITLE of the image.  
No spaces between the CODE, HYPHEN and TITLE, for example: 
     NH-Arctic Tern 
The Arctic Tern image is therefore entered into the Natural History Category.
