Can I submit work as a group?

Yes. Submissions must be clearly labelled with a collaborative name. If more than one file is being submitted then they must be sent at the same time using our submission form 

Are you looking for one image?

Image submissions should be one file, clearly named with you name, per image (max of 5). Within these images however there can be a selection of panels, images or cells if your submission is a narrative which relies on this format (i.e A comic).

Can I submit more than once?

Yes. Entries are limited to 5 per person.

What is the theme?

Each year we offer a new theme for your interpretation. In 2021 it is 'The Story of a Better Tomorrow' This is free for you to explore.

When will I know if my submission is successful?

This year successful submissions will receive an email of confirmation before the end of September 2021. If you don't hear from us by then then i'm afraid you have been unsuccessful this year. We cannot email unsuccessful participates but we do however look at every entry we receive.

We get over 1000 entries so please don't be disheartened if you are unsuccessful. We get so many great entires we cannot include due to space so we look for a diverse cross section of images.

Can i send my entry in an email with my information in an email itself?

Please do not do this as it will render your entry invalid and you will not be entered into the competition.

Do i call my entry 'CIA 2021' or 'The Story of a Better Tomorrow'?

Please do not do this without also writing your name also. We will not be able to identify your image as yours and link it to you once they are downloaded. Please name all files submitted with your name.
