Confirming it works OK now.

After clicking on enter a progress bar appeared at the top of the entry form and then a confirmation message screen. The confirmation email came in before I had time to return to this thread so I suspect your moderators are never going to catch Covid.....

Now having just actually read the email, I withdraw my comment on the Moderators :)

Oooh will check this out when I get a few spare minutes, probably over the weekend. Sounds interesting and will be good to see where this goes :)

Like the sound of this but don't know if I'll be able to enter this month. Hopefully next month.

Tom, I uploaded a mono image, and as is my custom, to ensure that the boarders don't gel lost on a dark background, I put a keyline boarder on it. When I viewed it, I was right! The BG is black so my boarder was needed.

However, only the sides are visible as there is a large white box at the top of the image that not only is a huge draw on the eye (for all entries) but the bottom of the screen has a white line running right across it which masks my mid grey boarder.

Going full screen retains the eye-pulling white box across the top of the image and you have to scroll to see it all. The bottom of the full screen 'box' also has a white line along the bottom - only on the image this time, but still masking my boarder. I did not see any guidance on file or images sizing so only uploaded a web sized image 1400 x 934 pixels.

None of the images are being displayed at their best.

The uploaded originals are what are judged and it is not a public vote so it shouldn’t affect anything tbh
