Completing your entry

We strongly suggest you make sure you compile your entry before going online to complete the entry form. You will need to complete the whole entry process in one sitting as it is not possible to leave the entry system part way through the entry process. The system will time out after 20 minutes.

Although the entry process commences with a ‘Payments Page’, this is purely a data capture page. You will not be required to complete payment details until the very end of the entry process system.
