Its time to get your prints mounted, your digital images and slideshows submitted in time. Check out the site for information.

Some inside information - there have been quite a few digital entries, but very few prints, and slideshows are notoriously lightly entered. Better chances to win awards with prints this year, and slideshows, as always.
