Online entries

How to enter:
Choose your ca
tegories, the number of images you want to enter and pay online. Once we receive your entry, we'll process it and set up your upload account. We'll then send you an email to the email address supplied with your Paypal payment (so please make sure it is current) with your payment receipt and your username and password log in for your upload account. This process is carried out by staff rather than automated. Entries are usually processed quickly, but please allow up to 2 working days.

Main categories (Scottish Nature Photographer of the Year section):
£5.00 per category (£4.00 early bird fee to 30/09/2016). This automatically includes 1 image entry to that category. You can enter as many categories as you want. You only need to pay the fee for each category you are entering ONCE.

If you wish to enter more images, the additional fees are as follows:
5 extra images £5.00
10 extra images £10.00
15 extra images £15.00
20 extra images £20.00
25 extra images £25.00

You can submit all your extra images to one category, or spread them over any of the categories that you have entered. Therefore, if you enter all 8 categories and select the 25 extra images option, you can submit a total of 33 images to the competition.

Examples:
If you want to enter 1 image to the Scottish Wildlife Behaviour category, entry is £5.
If you want to enter 1 image to the Scottish Wildlife Behaviour category and 1 image to the Scottish Wildlife Portrait category, entry is £10 (2 x £5 category fee).
If you want to enter 12 images which are a mix of Scottish Wildlife Behaviour and Scottish Wildlife Portrait, entry is £20 (2 x £5 category fee + 10 extra images @ £10).
