How to enter

Step 1 - Submit your online entries

Enter awards via 'My Entries'. You may submit as many entries as you like (maximum 5 images per entry), and you also have the opportunity to save and revise your entries at your convenience before you register them. Entries must be uploaded online (Step 2) and physical items sent if required (Step 4).

Step 2 - Prepare your online entry artwork

As part of your online registration you must upload a PNG version of your entry. (Maximum of 5 separate images per entry) This PNG will be used as reproduction artwork for various printed collateral.

If you experience difficulty with your uploads please contact: awards@agda.com.au

Step 3 - Register and pay

Once you have reviewed your entries and are satisfied your artwork is correct, you can register your entries. Your registration can be for one or more entries - you can select which ones you wish to register (and leave off the ones you wish to complete at a later date if desired). You can pay immediately via Credit Card.
