Additional Information

The normal rules of this group apply to every work entered into this challenge.

Please make sure the work you want to add to the challenge has been accepted into this group. That’s the first thing we check and we remove the work immediately from the challenge, if it’s not in the group or in the moderation queue.

As long as your work has been submitted to be moderated, you can add your work to the challenge.
