IMPORTANT: New Uploader Required

September 11, 2016

A new Uploader (version 1.4) is required for the 2016-17 season.

The committee have decided to bring the digital competitions in line with the print competitions; so there are now two sections (Intermediate and Advanced) in the digital competition as well.

PLEASE confirm which section (Intermediate or Advanced) you will be competing in for the 2016-17 season. You will not be able to change sections part way through the season. If you are unsure then please have a chat with a committee member.

Another change is that there will be more flexibility in the number of entries that may be accepted for each competition in order to cope with the total volume of entries received. Simply upload your entries in order of preference.

This change means that a new version (1.4) of the Uploader is required for the 2016-17 season. Uploader 1.4 comes in two variants: one for the Intermediate section and one for the Advanced section.

Please ensure that you download the correct section variant. For households that have both I and A workers there is no problem having both variants on the same machine.

Please delete your existing version and download the correct variant of version 1.4 from the links on the Uploader page on the website.
