If you win and can't make it to the ceremony

we shall still award the winner at the Nailympics

but will send the prize on and contact the winner for a profile in Scratch

so don't be put off if you live in Australia, South Africa, Canada, Puerto Rico

etc

we would like to see as many diverse entries from around the world as possible

thank you

Hi Alex
can i just confirm that you only need to submit your photo with the entry forms and do not need to do a step by step of how you achieved the image?

It's not necassary to frame them as we mount them all together in a theme

such as coloured borders last year

foam mounts to sit off the wall the year before

it's best we get the entries all the same as photo prints or jpegs that we print off

it's also much cheaper for you to post!

thanks

Top Tips

- Keep it simple

- Get a great photographer

- Nails must be flawless

- Try and be original - in the end an image that's brilliant and not been seen before will pip another brilliant image at the post

- if you feel the urge to enter - don't miss the opportunity - it's worth a go

- Your clients will love the fact you've entered - they will encourage and support you

- You then have a beautiful image you've created for your salon wall

- It's always highly motivating to get creative and use your skills in a new direction

- All entries get displayed for industry recognition in a gallery at Olympia

- All entries get published in Scratch magazine

thanks

I am going to enter this one, so i will need to get my thinking cap on.

Never done a photo entry before, but i know it's good to step out of your comfort zone from time to time.:eek:

When have the entries got to be in by Alex?

I will probably be emailing my entires to you Alex, so how is the best way to sort out payment. Do you still want a cheque or can Paypal be used?

Sorry we do not have a Paypal account

so a cheque or postal order in the post or credit card details via phone, fax or email are fine

You can call Janine Derbyshire on +44 (0) 1959 547 000 with your details, after you get a confirmation email from me that I have received your entry.

or email her on [email protected]

or fax her on +44 (0) 1959 565 119

thank you

Out of interests, what are the prizes for this competition?

I am happy with the fact i will get a nice printed picture to hang on my wall, but my client asked me the other day what does the winner get?

I haven't got a clue, so thought i'd ask.
