The Festival deadline for submissions was Sunday 13th July.
But even after our hosts upgraded our servers at last week, it seems it wasn’t enough to cope with the massive influx of last minute entries, meaning some of you may have experienced slow connections or simply an inability to submit your work. Our apologies - the technical server capacity was not in our direct control.
As a result, the Festival will remain open for entries, whilst we start the initial rating process of the work. We’re giving you until mid week to make sure you have the chance to get your entries in. However, to avoid this happening again, we'd urge you to not to wait until the last minute and if possible, enter your work at a time where there will be less traffic e.g. in the morning.
In the mean time, you can make sure your portfolio’s looking in shape, and that you’ve got your biography filled out.

We want to also express our gratitude for all of your patience.
NEW DEADLINE: MIDNIGHT, FRIDAY 18TH JULY
