This is a call for images for the Kingswood Salver that we as a Club will be entering again this year.  We must receive submissions by 1st September 16, to give us time to select and prepare the panel.
We have decided that this year to keep our options open, the theme for the panel of images will be either 'MACRO' or 'MOVEMENT'.  
Therefore we ask you to please submit digital (resized) images of BOTH categories.  Once we have all entries we can see which images fit best together and then choose which panel to submit.
You can enter 3 digital resized images of MACRO and 3 digital resized images of MOVEMENT if you so wish.
Please send your submission to Paul Durrant at fwccbattles@gmail.com
