Competition Entry Forms for the National Competitions for 2018

Please note there is a new provisional photographic entry form which covers Trail Cam and Drone pictures. National office has received some enquiries about photographic entries from Trail Cams and Drones. Moving forward to gauge whether or not there is the interest in these categories we have created an entry form for this year’s photographic competition. There will be no entry fee and it will be an Exhibition Only class. If sufficient entries are received a remit maybe put forward at this conference for discussion or a rule change maybe put forward at the 2019 conference which will take effect in 2020.
