Where do I send my finished entry to?

Send your finished entry along with your completed application form to:

Julie Boyd, 375 Hucknall Road, Sherwood, Nottingham, NG5 1FU

Notes on posting your entry:

  • Don’t forget to make sure your name & contact details are attached securely to your entry (e.g. stitched, written on or pinned on with a safety pin. Don’t use paper clips or ordinary pins)
  • Send your entry with the application form. Don’t forget there are 2 pages to the form. 
  • You don’t have to send the tin as part of your entry. Simply post your entry in a padded envelope.
  • Make sure the package is well wrapped. Use a strong envelope, or a padded one, & put lots of tape around it to protect it. 
  • Entrants are responsible for delivering their work & receipt of entries can’t be acknowledged. If proof of receipt is required it is advised entries are sent by Royal Mail ‘Signed For’ or ‘Special Delivery Guaranteed’ 
  • Make sure any entries that are posted are well packaged. An ordinary envelope is usually not sufficient and many of these type of entries arrive ripped with the products damaged. Padded envelopes work best. Wrapping packages with lots of tape also helps make them stronger.
