Double Check your Entries

Hi All,
With your Print entries due in less than a week and PDI’s due in less than 2 weeks please note:

You should double-check your entries now.

Please make sure that all entries are uploaded into the correct competition and that they are titled correctly

This is extremely important as there is little we can do after the competition closes and the judge has been appointed.

We are lucky now that we can enter images for the whole year, but please take the time that they have been entered correctly.

As always, if you are having difficulties, help is at hand, but only while the competition is still “open”
Contact me directly on 0414 387 005 or pcc@pccincqld.org
If you find it more convenient, you can contact any of our Management team
Cheers – Gerry
