Exhibit Your Photographs at the June 2017 SPACE Open Exhibition!

    1. Hi Elizabeth, thank you for getting in touch. The form definitely works as I can see the other submissions coming in. Perhaps theres’s just something small missing. Maybe send me a screenshot of what you see so I can take a look? You can either attach it here or mail me on michelle@orms.co.za. Regards, Michelle

    1. Ok, please email me a screenshot of what you see. If the submission doesn’t go through it means something is wrong, either the images are to big, or you’ve left info out, or didn’t tick a box – something. The form works because I can see the other submissions streaming in. Please email me a screenshot to michelle@orms.co.za. Regards, Michelle

      1. Thx Michelle, I submitted under the name Dixon Norval and email – dixonnorval@yahoo.com
        My concern is that it only allowed a “send email” link and no submit “button”. I did include the link to the photos in each submission (4×2).
        Regards
        Dixon

        1. Hello Dixon, I don’t seem to find your submissions. Did you say you provided a link to the images? You didn’t actually upload the images to the form? That might be the problem, if your submission is successful the form will disappear and it will say thank you for your submission. The form works because I keep getting submissions in, but if you are seeing something different please email me a screenshot to michelle@orms.co.za and we’ll take it from there. Regards, Michelle

          1. Hi Michelle, finally succeeded in uploading my 4×2 entries (Dixon Norval). kindly confirm that it went through.
            Regards
            Dixon

          2. Hello there, just to let you know I’ve received your submissions. Regards, Michelle
