      We’d recommend contacting the organisers directly with any questions as we just re-post these opportunities for your convenience (although, in this case, we’re pretty sure you have to send hard copies of your work).

    1. Hi Christopher, We haven’t had any information about this yet, because they normally only advertise in a print ad, but you’re absolutely right that this should be open! We’ll check it out, and if you hear anything in the meantime, please do let us know.

      1. The final deadline for submission is Friday 16th June 2023. I’m trying to find more information about it too.
