The entry fee is is a substantial £10, but for that you can enter two works into any one category. However, I’ve just noticed that if you live in the UK you have to pay an additional £2 to cover VAT.
I’ve never come across Value Added Tax on competition entries before. Is this a new thing? Anyone know?
The other unusual element which I do like is that you can send in work that has previously been published elsewhere. For full details click here. And remember, follow the rules to the letter.
