Submissions close on the 8th of September 2017

You will have until 8th of September 2017 to submit any entries that you have already purchased.

Please note:

  • Once you have purchased your credits you should receive an email from NCEIA explaining what to do next. If you don't see this email, please check your Junk Mail folder.
  • If you purchase the same number of credits more than once (e.g. 5 + 5), the system will not recognise the separate purchases, if so please contact us so we can manually update your account. Multiple purchases of different numbers of credits (e.g. 5 + 6) will be added up automatically. This is due to a quirk in our membership system.
  • Some people have reported a fatal error after returning from PayPal which appears to be caused by memory on our web server overloading if several people are using it at the same time. If this occurs please don't panic! Your account has probably been set up. Try visiting our login page and get a new password using the ‘Lost your password?’ link, using the username or email you nominated during sign up.
