You can mount your prints if you wish (this is advisable to avoid the prints curling when viewed under the daylight viewing booth by the judges). You may also add a matt mount if you wish however the minimum viewable image must be 8in on the shortest side, so for example with a 1 inch border around to bring the total size to 12x10.

Please forward this to firstname.lastname@example.org we will be using these files to show on screen during the judging so the audience can see the image being judged, we will also be showing the image on the big screen at the awards dinner should your image be successful. Following the show dates all images are deleted.
