Labelling - the file name of each photo must follow this format: Category - Your Name & Surname - Title of Photo

Please make the subject line of the email "January photo submissions for 1st meeting". This will make it easier for Andre to identify the emails and ensure that your photos will be added.

If you miss the deadline for emailing, you can submit photos at the meeting. However, please be considerate and come early. Out of consideration to those who have submitted timeously, we will no longer be accepting submissions after 7PM, once the meeting begins.
