    Hi Cecilia

    Sorry about that and thanks for mentioning this, as I’m sure that others may have the same problem. You can send your photograph to stefani @ dtporbit .co.za (no spaces, just trying to prevent spam).

    We look forward to receiving your entry and will be posting other entries received later today.
