Then just complete the entry form as prompted.

You have the choice to either  “Save + Close” or “Add to Cart” – if you plan on loading up entries today but then logging out to come back with more images another day then select “Save + Close“. If you plan to upload all of your entries in one log in, or within a 12 hour period then choose “Add to Cart“. Once you’ve completed an entry form for each entry you can then proceed to the checkout to complete the transaction process.

1 – If you have signed up as an IWPOTY Member then you received an email with your annual member coupon code, which entitles you to $75 of entry credit. Use the code in position 1. This is a single use coupon so it is important when you use this that you submit at least 5 entries to get the full value of the coupon. Eg. If you submit 3 entries for $45 you will not receive $30 ‘change’. You essentially forfeit that portion of the coupon.

2 – The same confirmation email will also contain a second unique code. This code identifies you as a member in order to reduce your entry fee from $18 per entry to $15. This can be used as many times as you would like to submit entries.
