On the back of the photograph please label clearly in indelible ink the category for which you are entering the picture as well as your name, age if under 18, address and a telephone number where you can be contacted. Please also indicate which category you are entering under on the reverse of the envelope. If you would like your photograph to be returned to you, please include a stamped addressed envelope and suitable packaging. Neither the Independent on Sunday or First Direct cannot accept any responsibility for material damaged in the post.
