To limit the use of paper Entrants must tender all submissions in electronic format online via the Competition website. No hard copy submissions will be accepted.
All submissions must be tendered anonymously, identified only by the unique User IDs assigned to the Entrants during registration. Entrants must not display their names, countries of residence and/or practice anywhere on the panels. Failure to do so may lead to the disqualification.
