It is advisable to submit a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 10 spare images.

Spectating is a very good way to learn about the distinctions system and to see the advice given. Please do not bring any of your own images to the event on the off-chance that you can receive advice. Only panels that have been booked can be assessed.
